Do spawn and drop rates change?

I was farming nukem's and was getting the black queen to spawn at least 6 out of 12 times last week, This week I'm getting maybe 1 out of 15. Do they change the spawn rates? Also, When farming I've farmed for hours at a time and then the item I want drops two or three times in a short period of time. What's the deal? Is it completely random or is there divine intervention?

well, Gearbox did tweak the spawn rate for Vermiferous a couple of weeks back, along with certain items. So yes, it can happen.

does he spawn more frequently or less? I tried getting him for a couple hours and the super badasses never podded. So I gave up.

Yes they change, I read that on the Gearbox forum the other day. They(Gearbox) will be randomly changing how often each spawnable fight spawns with a different one each day.

They had tweaked it to spawn more frequently, but that was right before Hammerlock's DLC dropped. As far as I know they changed it back to what it was shortly after the DLC release.
