Dead Island Easter Egg – Jason Voorhees Discovered!

Dead Island is full of mysteries – there are zombies, hidden blueprints, secret skulls, and now Jason Voorhees! As if the survivors didn’t have enough problems, now a lumbering serial killer stalks the islands. As a powerful enemy, he can kill your characters in a single hit with his huge machete. Look inside his murder-hut to find a shiny unique chainsaw weapon — which, apparently, isn’t so hot against zombies. Still, it’s a neat find!

Look below for video and the location. For help getting through the Dead Island alive, check out our walkthrough. For even more crazy secrets, check out the cheats section.

Where to find Jason

  1. In Act 3, in the jungle, start at the the small town on the northermost edge of the map, just north of a two-lane road.
  2. On your map, you’ll see a path leading south through the destroyed paved road and splitting in two directions – east and west, roughly.
  3. Look for a shack west of the fork in the path, in the corner of the rocky hills closing off the area. The shack is north of Otha Cantu, and far west of the Jungle Village.
  4. A giant Thug-like zombie named Jason is waiting near the shack, attacking anything that comes close. This guy is high level, and can kill you in a single hit. Play it safe, if you can defeat Jason, enter his creepy shack to claim your prize; a chainsaw.

derka, if you do not know who Jason Vorhees is I doubt you are actually old enough to play Dead Island….go and ask your mum, she will know.

Why is it, that every time I kill jason and climb up the ladder to his shack, i hear a “brains!ahhhhahhh” and he respawns at his front door?


On September 24, 2011 at 11:15 pm

I kill him and by the time i am up his ladder, he has respawned. I can’t even get into his hut without him killing me


On September 25, 2011 at 1:08 am

I Disagree with some key aspects of this, one, the chainsaw cant be repaired, wheres the fun in that? two, jason respawns when you go just a small distance from his hut, which really pisses me off as i have to keep killing him. finally three, you recieve no exp from killing him which doesnt make sense until number two is revealed to you.

apart from those facts, this is an awesome easter egg

so the chainsaw is used to kill him…thats its main use lol


On September 30, 2011 at 5:18 am

You don’t have to kill him actually. You can just wait till he jumps down, he’ll be occupied by the zombies, then you can just run up the ladder, grab the chainsaw and leg it


On October 1, 2011 at 1:07 pm

the chainsaw is an interesting weapon, the stats say it’s attack power is terrible, and yes when you use it on enemies it does about 10 damage each hit, but the beauty of it is that it cuts off limbs and heads in a couple ticks.

Just remember to use it sparingly, as it can’t be repaired or upgraded. You can still go pick up another one from the same place, but that gets old after 4 or 5 times.

I killed him and got in his shack but moments later he spawned right behind me and killed me before I got the chainsaw. D:


On October 5, 2011 at 11:58 am

Yeah, he just won’t stay dead! Just like the movies, he keeps coming back!

Obvbiously he won’t stay dead cause he is jason! I mean come on he never stays dead, but I would prefer it if they least just made it where he didn’t stay down, not where I kill him and he magically vanishes. Also talk about being freaked out! I didn’t know about this easter egg and almost chocked to death when I found it! Awesome!


On October 11, 2011 at 7:59 pm

if you kill jason by burning him with a modded gun then he has a longer respawn time for some reason… tested this with a friend


On October 12, 2011 at 4:31 am

a good tip for killing him (if you’re low level and struggling) is to drive down to his house, get out and on top of the car. his attacks, like the zombies, can’t get you. and you can just wail on his head with a long range weapon. i found a phoenix modded big splitting axe worked nicely.


On October 13, 2011 at 5:52 pm

Yeah, I think I eventually ran him over somewhere near his shack and eventually killed him. I got the chainsaw and used it up. I can’t repair the damn thing and I REALLY need it for the area I’m in. Does anyone know how to kill all of the zombies, the thug, and the butcher in the warrior burial area? I am STUCK!


On October 19, 2011 at 3:45 pm

The Warrior Burial Area is Easy just get you that mindblower military knife and some bombs. Bomb the group of zombies in the back. If you have a really powerful shotgun and high crit. you can blow away the thug and butcher in one hit. and just blow the brains out of all the other infected/walkers that pop up!


On October 19, 2011 at 3:53 pm

Haha I just did the Jason thing and he never re spawned again like yalls did.
