  • Chapter One

    1. After some serious exposition, it’s time to level up! There are three branching skill trees and what you choose will depend a great deal on whether you’re playing co-op or solo. Talk to Sinamoi and he will offer you your first quest. Get used to this. A checklist for the mission will appear and you can select whether to accept the mission or not. It also tells you what your rewards will be. This will be much more important later.
    2. Look for the explanation point on the map, which is Steven in the back room. He’ll offer you another mission, “The Lost”.
    4. Once you leave the bungalow, look immediately to your right for a better paddle. Head to the left of the bungalow to go up some stairs to find Sinamoi’s bungalow, number 11. There’s a zombie at the top of the stairs.
    5. TIP: If you accepted Steven’s mission after Sinamoi, you may have to go into the quest menu to choose the active mission so the radar icons come back on.
    6. Proceed toward the pool. When you reach the pool there will be a number of zombies to kill, eating a body, as well as one playing possum. When you have dispatched them, head around the side of bungalow 7, to the right as you came to the pool. There’s a knife in the cooler and a pipe built into the wall. You’ll need more weapons by now. Defend yourself as you follow the radar path around the pool.
    7. You’ll come to a bungalow with a red light coming from inside. Go in to loot, find a tied up woman, and a pervy zombie that will come to life when you get close. As you continue along the path, when you take a hard right to follow the radar, you’ll notice a suitcase that holds a Personal ID. This is the game‘s major collectible. If you turn right before going UP to more bungalows, you’ll find a bar beside the pool. There is a storage room you can break into, and it has a locked cooler in it.
    8. When you reach the top of the stairs, following the radar, if you turn to the left, you’ll reach another swimming pool and another survivor. Enter the bungalow by the pool, find the recording on the coffee table, and move to the back. There’s a door you’ll have to break, and in the rooms behind it is a zombie and the keycard you’re looking for. You can now return to Sinamoi.
    9. If you continue up to the next cabana area and kill off some zombies, there is a guest, Robert Garrison, in the room behind the bar. He just wants booze. You probably already have some, but it might not be enough.
    10. Return to Sinamoi for kudos and the Nail’d Mod blueprints. Talk to him again for your mission to deliver the keycard.
    11. TIP:By now you will have leveled up at least twice. Each skill in the tree has three levels, so moving up one whole tree takes a lot of leveling, so at first it’s best to focus on just one set of skills.
    • EXODUS
    1. Sinamoi tells you to follow the beach, but there’s a lot more loot if you poke around on the way there. I had the most luck with items in coolers, but there are also changing stalls, suitcases, etc, lying around. There’s an island with a bar off to your right, just before you meet Haris, that’s worth visiting.
    2. Save Haris and he’ll lead you to the water equipment rental place. Look for a Fact, another collectible, and in the back is a work bench, and there is a lot of loot around.
    3. ACHIEVEMENT: If you use the bench to create a weapon, say, using the Nail’d Mod you just earned, you’ll unlock get the Warranty Void achievement for 10 points.
    4. When you’re about 60 meters away, a pack will attack you, including a very fast Infected. Remember to kick to keep them back!
    5. Your path will hook back to the left, and you’ll see a changing hut. A pack of five zombies will get up when you approach. If you put the hut between you and them, it’ll break their attack up a bit.
    6. At the top of the stairs you’ll fight a few more and find the gate that needs the keycard. Inside the compound are another bunch, and you have to clear them all out. You can use the gas tanks inside the space, or go off and charge up your rage if you’ve leveled up that ability.
    7. Open the garage door with your card, and you’ll see a cutscene introducing the Thug zombie. He soaks up a lot of damage, so if you didn’t use the gas tanks yet, now might be the time, or at least keep throwing stuff at him to keep your distance.
    8. After he’s dead, you’ll have access to a workbench. If you’re not rocking a specialty weapon by now, take care of it. Explore the building and watch for the fact on the office counter. When you’re done, head upstairs.
    9. There are a pack of zombies up here, including a speedy Infected. If you haven’t figured it out by now, if you run out of stamina, which is easy when fighting a big group, you’re easy to knock down and kill. Remember that each of your weapons has a different range, so don’t waste swings and energy. Enter the lifeguard tower and kill the zombie on the chair before he can take a swing at you. Use the radio and watch the cutscene.
    10. Now the game really starts. There are several people you can talk to for mission assignments now, and they’ll start to help you see the rest of the world.

    Is there a walkthrough of some sort on act 2. I am actually just looking for the part on the plane wreck as I believe I am progressing pretty well on my own minus that part. I have noticed that only a small handful of people have made it this far and still no one knows about the plane wreck. If you could through a small hint, that would be great.


    On September 8, 2011 at 8:41 am

    Chapter 6: Let the Waters Flow. Objective – Talk to Joseph. Where the #*@* is Joseph?!


    On September 8, 2011 at 12:14 pm

    kristen the plane part is later on the game ignore it for now i have bein all over the island that is open so far in chp 2 and still cant find it i to think i am doning well so far on my own but bit early so far

    Beau Prichard

    On September 8, 2011 at 4:54 pm

    @Kristen, the plane crash and the spy game mission are both in the Jungle, which comes later. @Midget, Joseph is an older guy who will be right outside the church after you’ve cleared out the water station and turned off all the fire hydrants.


    On September 9, 2011 at 9:51 am

    @ Kristen, you wont find the plane until act 3, and its in the south western part of the jungle


    On September 9, 2011 at 11:43 am

    Can someone tell me how to progress with “It’s never too late”? when im supposed to drive the armored truck to the lifeguard tower. The armored truck isnt outside the church anymore =/ i have that quest, Spy game and Six feet under. i cant complete any of them…


    On September 9, 2011 at 6:13 pm

    @Chris Don’t feel bad. I haven’t even completed Sinamoi’s first mission…


    On September 9, 2011 at 8:08 pm

    @chris If I recall correctly. I believe you have to save Jin first, who will then drive the truck back for you.


    On September 10, 2011 at 12:05 am

    Can someone tell me how to recover when you’re dying? It says a certain amount of seconds left to recover but I just don’t know how to. Thanks so much.


    On September 10, 2011 at 12:05 am

    Can someone tell me how to recover when you’re dying? It says a certain amount of seconds left to recover but I just don’t know how to. Thanks so much.


    On September 10, 2011 at 12:17 am

    @Andrew and how do i save her? i cant even track the quest, so how am i supposed to know where she is? :P


    On September 10, 2011 at 2:56 am

    omg.. i downloaded the Dead island update 1-reloaded to see if maybe my game was bugged and that the update would fix it. It screwed up my save game so now when i press “Continue” it starts over from the complete beginning =/ 58% progression gone, f*ck. so many hours put into the game and this happens -.- sigh


    On September 10, 2011 at 4:22 pm

    In order for you for you to complete the mission that involves searching for the plane,you must get up to Act 3,you will come across the Jungle,then you will be able to complete that quest.


    On September 10, 2011 at 9:40 pm

    @chris… it happened because you probably quick traveled to the resort after rescuing her from the police station (that’s what happened to me). just run NE where you originally entered the city and manually take the portal to the resort area,
    the trucks sitting right there… this worked for me.


    On September 11, 2011 at 4:42 am

    @marcus Oh okey, thanks, ill try to remember that if it happens again since my save game got ed by the update =/ not sure when ill feel like putting 21hours into the game again lol


    On September 11, 2011 at 9:28 am

    Hello all, just a warning. I’m 77% complete and stuck on the Man of Faith mission on the 360. After fighting waves of undead natives in an arena, you get stuck there and they don’t open the gate to allow you to progress. It’s a game killing glitch, and quite frankly indicative of what happens when games companies expect paying customers to be unpaid beta testers. Sucks, and sucks hard.


    On September 11, 2011 at 9:46 am

    Okay… update on last post. It has a switch (somewhere!!). Another player joined my game and turned it. I did a little happy dance. Just so you know the gat does NOT open automatically. I retract my earlier comment about free beta testing (that said, I’m, still glitched on Fable 3) ;)
    Enjoy the zombie apocalypse folks


    On September 11, 2011 at 11:08 am

    Anybody know how i can pass chapter 14 when i have to protect Ope from 7 infected, a thug, and a butcher? He keeps trying to be a hero and whacking everything with his stick and he dies so quickly. Plus i have used up a lot of supplies trying to kill the zombies and i cant leave the quest cause it will fail me and tell me he died.


    On September 11, 2011 at 3:20 pm

    To all that want to know about the plane mission you can not do the plane mission until u move through the other chapters to get into the jungle and to the person about the ope who keeps dieing get to the smaller zombies first then the thug… atleast ur only problem is hes dieing on my xbox he walks back and forth and wont go to the boat…


    On September 11, 2011 at 3:44 pm

    @Shadow, the way I did it was press “rage” and hit the butcher, and the thug, then picked off the walkers. Hard as hell to do, but it can be done


    On September 11, 2011 at 7:30 pm

    Hey, anyone know where Loren is located and the bandages for the ‘Blood in the Tropics’ side mission? I am ready to move on to the last chapters with the “Do not continue until you are done everything you want. Cannot go back’ message coming up. Its the last mission I have left undone!


    On September 12, 2011 at 11:59 pm

    I Just Got The Game And When I Try To Talk To James For The Mission “On The Air” It Just Won’t Let Me Speak To Him. It Shows Everything On The Map And It Shows I’m Supposed To Talk To Him But No Icon Comes Up To Start The Conversation… Is Anyone Else Having This Problem?


    On September 13, 2011 at 10:27 am

    I’ve done missions around the lighthouse.Ive gotten into the storage area where the signal amplifier is but it won’t let me pick it up or talk to James anymore.


    On September 13, 2011 at 4:28 pm

    in act 2 where is the keycard located????? ive look everywhere by the door and still havent found it


    On September 13, 2011 at 10:45 pm

    okay I’m quite slow here. chapter 2 when Sinamoi asked to find 2 packs of juice from 2 gas station, I’ve completed that. brought them over to him. but he still asked ‘have you checked both gas stations?’ Arrghh! been repeating the damn thing for 3 times now. someone help!


    On September 14, 2011 at 5:24 am

    @ Nini, you need to take the 2 packs of juice down to the garage (below Sinamoi) and put them where it shows in the far right corner. Annoying as hell, and I was wandering around for an hour figuring that out on first play through ;)


    On September 14, 2011 at 7:21 am

    @nini its just near the repair/upgrade bench..a hand sign( just like at the back of the van) will appear

    and iam stuk with that ope. that killing is annoying as hell. all of my weapons took most damage.


    On September 14, 2011 at 1:15 pm

    There has been a recent update to the Ope bit, he now has bucketloads more hp so it should be easier now (or maybe i just tried it so many times my xbox took pity and faked an update so i wouldn’t feel bad that it put it onto easy mode)


    On September 15, 2011 at 4:18 am

    The fight with Ope is hard,and you WILL die alot. The key is to build up your rage and go to town. I am playing solo with Xian she is the best.


    On September 15, 2011 at 4:31 pm

    how do you recover? when your dying and it says time to recover?


    On September 15, 2011 at 8:02 pm

    Hey when you are stuck from the glitch on the man of faith quest…how do you get the gate to open? I’m stuck cus of the glitch and really don’t want to start it all over…please help!


    On September 15, 2011 at 10:12 pm

    On September 16, 2011 at 8:17 am

    can anybody tell me where i can find some champagne?


    On September 16, 2011 at 9:24 am

    @Stevie- Champagne is random and rare.I usually find it in lockers.

    Single player is impossible at higher levels and multiplayer….I can’t find anyone to play with for some reason.When it tells me someone is nearby, I join and they are ALWAYS afk.
    I’m stuck trying to find the native camp.The little trail of dots leads me to a rock wall with now way around/over.


    On September 16, 2011 at 12:28 pm

    okay, i need to find the 2nd gas station, i founnd the first one already but now i need the 2nd juice pack and i dont know where the gas station is, help would be amazing


    On September 16, 2011 at 5:55 pm

    im on act 3, as for the gas stations just follow the mini map with a vehicle preferably. theres gonna be alot of zombies and a thug so stock up before you go and a few infected. ive died alot but i think you shouldnt have a problem


    On September 17, 2011 at 1:50 am

    Hey Im stuck at the end of chapter 15 it keeps saying once i leave the island I can’t come back and the chick just stands there, so I completed all my missions, and now Im covering every inch of each area, jungle, city, resort to see if by completing all the side missions I can move on, I hope it isn’t a glich, I dont know what is up with glich’s?


    On September 17, 2011 at 1:52 am

    My bad forget the last I just read use the radio–

    kill zombis

    On September 17, 2011 at 10:48 am

    how do u kill those big stupid zombies that look like they are in straight jackets they keep charging me and biting me to death when i shoot or hit them they don’t take any or very small amounts of damage?


    On September 17, 2011 at 5:30 pm

    well you generally don’t even get to the jungle until act 3 and even then it is pointless until you kill arfno because his men will make hell for you so complete most of act 4 then go off and search the jungle and if u find ope’s village thats a bonus because it will cut down on travel time


    On September 17, 2011 at 6:50 pm

    You have to hit the straight jacket guys in the back to do major damage.

    My question– I’m on the boat in the jungle, but there is no Travel button, there’s a map, but no fast travel. The fighting music is still playing but I’ve killed all the guys… am I glitched?


    On September 18, 2011 at 1:42 am

    im wont let me talk to james….


    On September 18, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    @josh go to the steering wheel in the back of the boat. and does anybody know if u just have to progress through the game to finish continuous missions like finding nails for bruno. and hmu on live if u wanna play a lil multiplayer my gamertag is P0WD3RDT095TM9N the o’s are zeros


    On September 19, 2011 at 8:39 pm

    Ok stuck on chapter 14 (80%) and Ope won’t get on the Damn boat.. he keeps pacing back and forth.. what do I do?


    On September 20, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    Good God. I think I’m gonna hold off on this game for a few months until the developer fixes some of this crap.. They really must have rushed this out but they’ve made out like bandits but as usual the gamers get screwed.


    On September 21, 2011 at 12:06 pm

    where can i find more guns?? and hows best to kill thugs


    On September 21, 2011 at 12:09 pm

    he’s not meant to get on the boat, when he gets close to the boat you have to use the steering wheel to travel. if he says something like lets travel to the tomb or something then do it. if not make sure you have killed all of the zombies


    On September 21, 2011 at 12:11 pm

    i find that a bladed weapon is the best way. focus on his arms with your attacks and remember that you can dodge his attacks. attack him while he roars


    On September 21, 2011 at 1:20 pm

    I am stuck at the light house as ive done most of the quests there but now i cant get back the amplifier or talk to james about it for dominick to finish the lifeguard tower quests, anything i can do or will i have to start again??


    On September 22, 2011 at 3:56 am

    have you actually taken the amplifier? first of all, do you have a quest that says you have to get an amplifier from the light house? if you do then make sure you have done the quest about restoring the power to the lighthouse. that will unlock the warehouse in which you will find the amplifier


    On September 22, 2011 at 1:38 pm

    im in chapter 2 where u have to get the juice pouches but i cant get past the electricity but i turned off both generators but it work the water stays electrified


    On September 22, 2011 at 8:45 pm

    On September 23, 2011 at 9:20 am

    I cant get past the electricity at the gas station, it says jump the electricity, but how do i do that? I’ve switched of the power, but i still get shocked to death, need the juice pack, can anyone help please?

    On September 26, 2011 at 8:06 am

    Right i’m stuck, on the bit with the arena, and proving your might. As Ope says something, the first gate opens, but nothing comes out, i’ve been stuck like this for an hour. I’ve tried reloading from last checkpoint, but it starts you inside the arena. Help?


    On September 26, 2011 at 4:16 pm

    @Patrick” yes I find it, just go to the resort and the boat wait there close to the Jin’s father garage!!


    On September 26, 2011 at 4:38 pm

    how the hell do you get past the ope village fight? (chapter 14) the game saves and reloads in the exact same spot. And earlier in the game when you get killed the zombies you killed before you died were still canceled out when you respawn, and your weapons still carried over as well. But now, in this one fight, for some reason your weapons get damaged and you loose mad loot, but the zombies come back! WTF!!??!! why the hell do i have to pull my hair out trying to kill a butcher and a thug whilst trying to save ope? its impossible. although i did manage to run all the way back to the boat, repair my weapons and switch some with rin. but i havent tested that technique yet. i keep lozing money!!! it really grinds my gears. SOMEONE PLS HELP!


    On September 26, 2011 at 7:50 pm

    i wish people would stop using purma she sucks in the begining, she’s only worth using if your a veteran dead island player and you know where the guy traped in the bunker is or you can make it to act2. but seriosly use xian or sam.B or hell even logan has his uses in the begining. purma dont…..maybe she might be this games meg?


    On September 27, 2011 at 12:30 pm

    That Ope fight ruined it for me. I dont mind it being hard etc, the idiot fact is that my weapons wear down more and more, respawning doesnt help so if you dont get it right at the start, you’re done for.
    To top that, I installed the patch in the hope this would be fixed somehow, but it ruined my game and I went from lvl 27 to level 0. Bloody waste of money this game is.


    On September 27, 2011 at 5:54 pm

    Chapter 14 is so irritated!!! Grrrr!!! Full of glitches! Dumbest game ever! Sucks!!! 60 dollars is a waste for this game! Never buy game to this developer :(


    On September 27, 2011 at 7:15 pm

    @Donrose never blame the developer or development team for a fault in the game its not their fault its the fault of the the testing team for not noticing it and calling the developers on it…or just maybe you suck and you dont know how to run your character or are a gamer and should go sell your console because you ‘ken suck.


    On September 28, 2011 at 5:50 am

    Stuck on chapter 14 this missions been really annoying, Ope’s fight in the jungle, really annoying me now my rage won’t charge back up , my weapons are losing damage i keep losing money and i cant kill that stupid butcher, help anyone???

    S0MBi3 Ki113R

    On September 28, 2011 at 4:06 pm

    I totally owned that butcher what r u people talking about 10 hours of searching for weapons and items wasn’t a waste of time now was it?


    On September 29, 2011 at 5:32 pm

    fantastic game its huge big game i love it to play thank u for create a good game


    On September 29, 2011 at 5:39 pm

    Hi. Working on the “Blackhawk Down” Quest, I was at the bunker with the Russian Nikolai when I quit playing for the day. I collected some loot and acquired his mission to head into town to find his friend at the restaruant. Going downstairs I saw the manhole but got blown up before I could use it. I quit at this point. One day later I “Continued” the game, however, it started me off in a new map, the city of Moresby in the restaurant. The Quest update says I got what was required and I needed to follow the Russian to the hideout. For the next several hours I plowed through the city, hopping onto cars, dumpters, etc. and stomped a ton of zombies who apparently can’t jump (except an occasional festy “Infected”). First I followed the bell to the Church but the door wouldn’t open for me. There wasn’t even an icon. Such was the case throughout the city. Except for zombines only sellers and human crimminals intereacted with me. All other survivors ignored me. I descovered “Fast Track” locations throughout the city but could not reach them because they were inside buildings inaccessible to me. Can anyone help me? Thank you.


    On September 30, 2011 at 2:18 pm

    Lots of annoying glitches that require exiting to main menu and then continuing, but on the whole a great game. After Oblivion and Fallout we finally get a “realistic” open world zombie game, what times we live in. Am
    Lvl 42 on 2nd playthrough, spending time helping new players at the mo, as loads of people seem to give up way to easy.


    On October 1, 2011 at 8:45 am

    I must be blind since I’m stuck in the “man of faith” quest looking for this switch to open the gate After killing the warriors in the arena.
    Can someone please tell me where this switch is, I’ve been wondering around for hours and would really like to move on. And the gate isn’t opening by its self. thanks.

    S0MBi3 Ki113R

    On October 1, 2011 at 10:46 pm

    do any of u know the dupliucation glitch you hold the throw button then press and hold the y button and then throw your weapon and it will drop 2 of the same item


    On October 2, 2011 at 11:44 am

    Matthew, There is a side path to the left of the gate that you can use to get into the village. Once there, hop into the arena and you’ll have to fight off waves of Infected


    On October 3, 2011 at 2:58 pm

    Common people. i need any sort of constructive help to get past this ope mission where the stupid game loads you with your weapons ed and your rage gone. (ch 14). i gave this game a break for a week and a bit. i didnt touch it because i knew that part would piss me off. is there any way to get past this mission on the village with ope when your stuck in autosave limbo?


    On October 3, 2011 at 3:47 pm

    @randylahey what character are you using?


    On October 3, 2011 at 5:03 pm

    I’m stuck with the swarm on ope as well. Using Logan… I have no idea how but I got out of the respawn limbo before but somehow when i turned the game back on it sent me back to the exact same spot in the ope mission. No idea how to get out or beat it, weapons are basically drained and im only halfway full on the fury


    On October 3, 2011 at 9:38 pm

    @cptnflcneqlsepk Im using Sam B.


    On October 5, 2011 at 2:00 pm

    Someone please please please please help me! I have gone through the entire Soldier of Fortune Quest, killed all of Afrans Security Guards, but there was no ccutscene when I hit the last group of them, I killed them all, including Afran, by automatic rifles, instead of molotovs, and after I searched their little hideout I hoped on the boat but it wont let me drive it? When I go to the steering wheel of the boat nothing pops up to tell me how to drive to the boat back? Please someone help me get past this part :(


    On October 6, 2011 at 10:41 pm

    For anyone needing help with gas station missions or anything near them…just stay in your car and keep running over all the zombies for easy kills. When they are all dead outside, open the doors you need to open, kill the left overs and you’re set. I’ve only died once and that was because the thug on the roof of the gas station knocked me off of it…:( Stupid thugs…

    Hi, I like the game just a bit frustrated getting used to the XBOX controller(some of us have to work for XBOX, etc…No Santa’s, No Mommy & Daddy, etc) anyway, point is simple, I try and try and actually am doing pretty good, for playing a hour a day, 90 min at most, and some days can’t play. Does anyone else feel a HUGE let down about this game? I sure do. I wish like hell the controls were…better, they are ridiculously inane. World of Warcraft may suck, and it does, played it enough, but the controls on the keyboard and mouse were so so easy and so compatible with everything…. This is like learning how to talk backwards, LOL…. I was rambling, the controls SUCK! EVEN if you can key bind… I am going to try and do that. I just know certain things won’t be able to be bound, (i am sure, nothing is that easy)and now at LEAST walking dead is coming Sunday 2nd season, HUGE LET DOWN, don’t buy this game until you play it 1st…!!!


    On October 12, 2011 at 6:42 pm

    @Sarah, yeah i have the EXACT same problem!

    On October 13, 2011 at 2:50 pm

    Is anyone else having a problem with Mike? I bring him booze, 5 bottles, or 3, anyway I am supoposed to get M. tails But nothing, got one the 1st time. Where are they? Across the island magically whisked away the moment mike makes them, or up his ass? just curious as to this game is and has cost me (to me) a lot of $$$ I play on PC, had to buy XBOX controller for PC, 60 bucks, and…getting used to the controller, lol, sometimes when I fight, (And the more I play, the more I try not to squat BUT Everytime I fight I see that I am squating and I jump to be quicker, I look at how to squat and…LOL, I think the controls, are…stupid actually, BUT am doing well on them, as good as keyboard, but, why is mike such a Pheeb?


    On October 15, 2011 at 11:43 am

    this is my third post, is there any light at the end of the tunnel for the village ope mission? i need some assistance on this mission. i havent played dead island for weeks because of this stupid auto save limbo bull . there has to be some way of getting through it. can you change the difficulty in the menu? like fallout? if so maybe that will allow me to get past all those fukin zombos and butcher and bully.


    On October 16, 2011 at 11:09 am

    LOL, okay, On my PC, with the XBOX controller, I like it except for one little thing…squatting constantly because some idiot who put that action with movement of head, is…like someone who would put a smoke detector above a stove…. @/@
    _ LOL, UGH!!!!


    On October 16, 2011 at 2:15 pm

    Hi there, We are playing Dead Island and after having gone to the city and the sewers, we went back to the resort because we had quests there that we had not completed and our “map” was not tracking any more quests in the town…anyone know why that would be??? Also, We now have on our map a new icon
    waystation” it’s purple and at the end of the docks in the bungalows. What does it want us to do? We have searched over and under and have no idea what it means!!!


    On October 17, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    Seriously struggling on chapter 13 – killed all zombies, now waiting for gate to open – I repeat I have completed the arena, I am top gladiator zombie slayer – I am the spartacus of dead island I and I can’t conquer a damn gate. Help please :/ or I won’t be able to call myself spartacus anymore… :(


    On October 18, 2011 at 3:13 am

    for all u guys stuck on the Ope bit (i believe its chapter 14) i had no problem with this bit i did it first time without dying …. u must be sat there thinking yh right bull but there really is a very simple solution …………… use purma with a loada guns … i used a burst fire m16 i found in the police station like 6 chapters ago and just dominated … using a shock pistol/rifle/shotgun works best …. and to all those people saying purma is i really dont understand why tbh ive had no problems, she has the nest fury and holds the most ammo and the guns the , most melee weapons dont really compare …. must have loadds of bleach and metal scraps so u can get full ammo everytime u find a work bench! :) also whats with all these glitches i aint had none!!! :) :)


    On October 18, 2011 at 3:14 am

    *using a shock pistol/shotty/rifle is also best*


    On October 18, 2011 at 3:18 am

    a thug and the butcher cant do if they are sat there frying from your elctrical bullets and the whole time they are loosing health so just pound them with a machete or more bullets!!!!


    On October 18, 2011 at 7:51 am

    I myself play on PS3, aswell as a few friends and no glitches to speak of. Love this game so far i am at the prison and the challenge gets better. I use alot of dea bombs for thugs and rams i keep 60 on hand before any quest as well as keep several of same weapon as it gets used i throw it away and duplicate a new fully repaired one every chance i get plus i try to cary atleast 1-2 hundred grand of money in my pocket and 20 medkits.First mission in prison was toughest one yet died like 5 -8 times.


    On October 20, 2011 at 7:43 pm

    All of you people complaining about Ch. 14 aka “the Ope escort mission” are ridiculous. Admittedly, I died a few times but learned from my mistakes. The trick isn’t to rush into battle and try to fight them all simultaneously, it’s to start with the thug on the left, kill him and build up some rage, then little by little sneak to the other zombies until you knock them off one by one. Use rage if you have it stored up. When I defeated that portion, I hadn’t even used my rage. I had a fully upgraded/modified long sword, like a Katana, but named something different (can’t think of the name but it looks like swastika haha).

    That’s it. Not hard. Takes a few tries but definitely not something to completely quit the game over.


    On October 20, 2011 at 8:35 pm

    I cant get my computer to even read the disk. I pull it up, I’m connected and the Logo’s come up and everything and then while waiting for it to launch it never happens. I know it’s not me or my compute because my other steam games work. I’m finding this whole game really frustrating and now the damn disk won’t work


    On October 20, 2011 at 9:11 pm

    How do you get Yerema to walk up the stairs in ch14 to get to the lab? She wont move she just keeps looking around.


    On October 21, 2011 at 8:35 am

    Hi, again, anyone have any suggestions on how to change the bindings(if possible, have looked I think everywhere but ya never know)on the head movement control on XBOX controller for PC, The squatting Purma does, why put that “squat” move on the control you have to use to turn your bleedin’ head to log off the infected’s heads, limbs etc… BUT I find in a fight suddenly shes squatting and dieing quick, IF NOT for that…inane squat, it would be MUCH more interesting and also, I see a lot of folks beating this game in 26 hours and IF I am not mistaken someone says 16 hours,(that’s a whole 12 hours less than the 2 folks who did it in 28 hours…WOW well I am no one to doubt you but may I ask, did you do all quests or miss some?

    On October 21, 2011 at 7:31 pm

    Helpppp!!!!!! I am in chapter 10 # 7 above I have taken the 2 boxes of guns and the truck back to matutero but no shaded spaces are appearing how the hell do I complete this mission. are the shaded spaces somewhere not obvious I cant figure this out. I am panicking someone help.


    On October 22, 2011 at 5:59 pm

    chapter 14:the purist evil, it is so impossible to finish that part, the one i’m protecting ope form the infected tribe mate of him,. so impossible in single player, can you give me some hint to finish that.


    On October 22, 2011 at 6:04 pm

    i really have a hard time finishing chapter 14:purist evil, ope always died so easily, i’m playing it on single player.


    On October 22, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    Your best bet would be to do it on muliplayer. I know what you mean. The zombies always go after him and he can’t fight worth a damn either…

    jj lucas you take the 2 boxes outside of matutero’s place. To the left RIGHT before you go up the ramp to his place is where you put those ammo boxes. The shaded area is kinda hard to see. Just look down near that ramp that leads you into matutero’s home.


    On October 23, 2011 at 2:06 am

    Still stuck on this damn gate in the arena. I may starve in here. Helpp please :)


    On October 23, 2011 at 5:14 pm

    Stuck on level 14 like so many others. Ope is a tard, I’ve wasted ALL my shock ammo because Ope can’t keep his dumb ass from getting killed or at the very least stay away from the zombies. Up to this point the game was great, a little repetitive but still fun. Between Ope’s AI and only having one save point, I’m down to a bunch of broken down weapons to kill the Thug, Butcher and the horde. Hate to say it but I’d rather trade the game in than start all the way at the beginning just so I can have some decent weapons. Too bad that in this day and age developers aren’t smart enough to have better save options so you can backtrack and start again…a la Dead Space!


    On October 23, 2011 at 6:25 pm

    jones, I’m having the same problem as you have… Do you had any assistance on this issue?


    On October 24, 2011 at 9:57 pm

    FINALLY (after losing all my great weapons & getting killed 30times)!!!!! Got past the stupid village on 14 where Dopey Opey keeps getting killed by the horde while I’m trying to kill the thug & butcher. Took a couple tries but you have to have full health (eat a bunch’ve apples while he dies a couple times), then you have to charge up your Rage. Once you’ve done that go after the horde & the butcher in your Rage, that should take out all of them…then turn your attention to Ope getting the ape-spit knocked out of him by the lone thug and go take him out. Just when I thought I was out they sucked me back in….don’t give up!!


    On October 29, 2011 at 6:27 am

    Bad idea to play as Purma Unless you played as someone else 1st, OR want to die a zillion times…lol, she is such a LOSER, I play another one, and he is fine, much better, and… jeez, DO NOT PLAY PURMA if you just start unless you want more than a challenge, a bad record, etc…OMG, this game, get rid of that sqaut in the stick! That is stupid! So many people I know complain about that, PUT IT SOMEWHERE, and IF you try to reconfigure, that always stays (i think)… Anyway, TV Ad’s say this game is a 8.5 out of 10…LOL, sure! Don’t give up! my Butt


    On November 2, 2011 at 5:52 am

    @ mixel, @ duke. U dont need to climb the ladder on chapter 2, park a truck near the back of the store and climb onto the roof. kill the thug and then stand on the skylight and break the glass. you land in the storage area of the store.


    On November 3, 2011 at 10:36 pm

    does anyone know where to find the shovel for the guy at the end of act 2 ? its from a guy at the church ?

    On November 6, 2011 at 7:21 pm

    For those of you stuck on Chap 14, I figured it out…..As soon as you spawn…turn around and RUN back to the bridge.(had to do it a couple times but you will make it) and opi will not get hurt. Travel back to the boat fix everything you can. When you get back shoot the thug from far away, if you do it right no other infected will notice. toss a meat bait at the butcher, then wipe out the infected, and finally the butcher. took me a while but that worked for me.


    On November 7, 2011 at 5:57 pm

    anyone know where i can find champagne for chapter 2?

    Hey when you are stuck from the glitch on the man of faith quest…how do you get the gate to open? I’m stuck cus of the glitch and really don’t want to start it all over…please help!


    On November 16, 2011 at 4:46 am

    Hello all, 3rd post, Now On Ope (who isn’t, BUT at the Bridge and I had to log off that day, I log on now in front of that broken bridge….It says destroy the lever > ? which is broke, And I found the ladder climbed down and found zombie cootie dude, and ??? How the Hell do we get over there??? I looked and it’s one of those “right in my face things” i bet…lol, HELP!!!!!!!!


    On November 24, 2011 at 8:23 am

    You need to pull the lever on the other side of the bridge, you can go down on the rocks and leap over to the other side.

    plaguebearing knife

    On November 29, 2011 at 9:34 am

    the answer to opes mission if u get the skulls and get the plaguebearing military knife just hit the thug and the crazy guy thing with it they will start puking and kill the rest with the mindblowing military knife one hit kills on allll infected and walkers then plaguebear the other to and beat them down wasnt that hard i found all the skulls already myself believe me those two are the best weapons in the game plaguebearer is 100% all the time effective and the mindblowing military knife is 100% insta kill it will definately help if u are stuck if ur stuck in respawn limbo and dont have it im sorry best thing i could say is respawn ur last checkpoint it may take u back like an hour but it might help


    On December 1, 2011 at 1:20 am

    I’m still at the beginning, just started the lighthouse missions. you make it look easy in the video walk throughs! I think I gotta aim for the heads more and throw the weapons more even though I don’t think I know how to. what the hell, i’m buzzed/drunk right now ;)

    On December 7, 2011 at 1:10 am

    Hi again,
    I have now progressed to just the start of Act II (reached the city). died a couple of times coz the the stupid Rammer outside the church. let’s see how tomorrow goes. I still haven’t modified or made any weapons of my own except molotovs and deo bombs. is that ok? i only have the unreliable revolver as the shooting weapon.


    On December 9, 2011 at 9:28 am

    Hey guys…i started playing D.I. with Purna, till I realized there is not many guys. I heard for beginners you should pay Sam B. So I restarted the game with him. Of course I wanted to play as a girl. But whatever makes it easier to beat the game. I noticed a lot of people haven’t completed the game. It’s said to be too hard. Too many zombies no fire armer. Which I understand some of those guys I don’t want to hit with a melee weapon just to save my health. Is there an easier way to take on this game or is it just the farther you get the better weapons we receieve. I want to collect the collectibles, but just too many zombies to just roam around. In fall out at least you can clear an area and go back to it. These damnn things keep respawning lol. Thanks guys. Any hints or help would help. =)


    On December 9, 2011 at 9:29 am

    Not guys guns sorry lol


    On December 10, 2011 at 11:36 pm

    I have now progressed to just the start of Act II (reached the city). If anyone wants to add me my PSN is moodyblues7606. I could use some co-op help!


    On December 12, 2011 at 9:37 am

    Ok I have looked and looked but can’t figure out how to find the “little Prince” Onc minute he shows up on my map but when I get there he is gone. I am going to spank him when I find him. lol


    On December 13, 2011 at 3:26 pm

    does any one know where all the skulls are in the sewers to get the programers mods i found the purple one


    On December 16, 2011 at 9:06 pm

    Lol, this game was cake mode. Solo-player 20 hours = win. And thats with about 90-95% of all sidequests. If you’re lost or need help just ask! ;-)


    On December 16, 2011 at 9:14 pm

    For the Purest Evil escort of Ope…just throw a friggin grenade people. Or a molotov, or a deo-bomb. You know the group is going to be there….sprint ahead throw your bomb and profit!


    On December 17, 2011 at 6:36 am

    so im in the middle of a quest. I’m supposed to go out to the gas station to get fuel to burn the zombies. most of my weapons are in desperate need of repair. So what happens if i run out of weapons? will my hands be good enough to fight off these people

    plus if i want to throw a weapon from afar at a zombie, how do you do that? or is that a skill you have to acquire?
    i’m quite lost i’d love some help. thanks yall :)


    On December 18, 2011 at 1:16 am


    press L1 and it will show you raise your weapon and while pressing L1 press R1 and it throws the weapon. sometimes it shows a red X to help you aim at the zombie. what is your PSN? mine is moodyblues7606. may be we can play co-op :)


    On December 18, 2011 at 6:26 am


    thanks so much as I was waiting for replies i was able to understand more and more things haha. I wish i knew then what i know now because i keep having to go back and forth to the light house, the gas station, that place where mike is so i can give him the gas haha.

    I am fairly new at ps3 so i need to actually set my psn up. What i heard it still wasn’t working but i guess that’s not the case anymore. i’d love to play co-op i could use the help haha i freak out when zombies attack me out of NO WHERE. hahaha!
    when i set up my psn. it will have the name halle in is somewhere. ill get back to you on this forum once i figure it out i totally forgot about psn :D

    thanks so much!


    On December 18, 2011 at 12:18 pm

    Hi Halle,

    definitely, let me know your PSN once you have it set up and we can slaughter zombies together!


    On December 18, 2011 at 12:23 pm

    make sure you keep your weapons repaired, specially the stronger and rarer ones or ones you modify/build by combining. use the work benches to do that. you should find the gas by filling up at one of the pumps (there will be a gas can lying next to it) but beware you will have to get rid of a lot of zombies while doing it including a thug as well I think. let me know if you have any problems getting the gas.


    On December 18, 2011 at 11:12 pm


    I had the same problem. Ran around the rock for a good half an hour before heading to google. Go back to where you enter the lab and hang a right. There should be a yellow jeep there. Get in and the map will change to show you the proper way to get there. If you don’t like driving (the terrain has a lot of sharp turns but it’s still faster and safer than running) then when you come out of the lab turn left and head up that road. But beware – there are a lot of zombies along that road.


    On December 20, 2011 at 9:24 am

    on the side quest matter of honor, the one where you have to go to the waterfall to find a lady’s necklace she threw into the water, where is the necklace at? I cant seem to find it, and when I get close to the bridge the icon disappears. thanks


    On December 21, 2011 at 8:46 am

    Just completed it now!!! Best bit of advise, get the home run baseball bat (by getting one of the coloured skulls) it just knocks everyone to ! Once at the final scene with White I killed him with one hit of it! Only downfall is its expensive to maintain so make sure you’ve got loads of cash!


    On December 22, 2011 at 6:23 am

    Hahaa! thanks a lot moodyblues! when i tried to set it up it would not let me. I’m not sure why is there anything i should know before i try again to set it up?

    I felt so stupid cause i did what you said and i somehow lost the gas can so i did it again later on hahah!

    otherwise i’m just moving right along i’m supposed to be searching for the airplane now.


    On December 22, 2011 at 7:09 am

    I don’t get why people are complaining about the game being too hard/glitched. I personally didn’t meet with any glitches and I’m on my 4th playthrough with Lv 60 Xian Mei(She’s the best, I think – able to one hit nearly everyone with a fully upgraded, lv 60 Deathstalker Zed’s Demise) In fact I’m so familar with the game now that I seem to know where and what are the enemy spawns and mod spawns, which quest give good items(so I only focus on them) and location of skulls/their drop off points etc. About the chapter 13(?) quest where the gate “would not” open, there is a side path you can take to sneak into Ope’s hideout, people! As for the Ope escort mission I dont get what’s so hard about it either. Completes it on my first run on my first playthrough, I was about lv 30 there and two hitted the butcher and thug with my wakizashi. The remaining infected are annihilated with my rage attack. I don’t know about other weps(maybe a bit more hits on the thug and butcher) but that quest seems like a joke to me. To those on the “getting the juice mission” there IS A THIRD SWITCH near the tunnels not far away from the gas station. It is on top of a bridge like thing on the entrance of the tunnel. Pulling that along with the other 2 would stop the electricity, allowing you to use the stairs to get up. Though an easier method would be to use a car to allow you to jump up to the gas station roof, that way you don’t even need to turn off any switches.


    On December 22, 2011 at 10:33 am

    Does anyone else have a problem with the minimap? I can’t scroll around to see quests and really hate wandering aimlessly in Moresby to try and finish sidequests.


    On December 22, 2011 at 10:45 am

    Uh, nevermind. I finally figured it out LMB and RMB to move map. Dumb.


    On December 22, 2011 at 2:06 pm

    I’m with Sammyboy9378,I am on my second play thru and I am by no means a hardcore gamer. I had no issues with the game other than a few sound glitches that were only annoying but did not affect gameplay. One thing I did notice is that the best weapon I had was a modded wakizashi that was electricfied. in the Opes village mission is was devistating. i made quick work of the arena battle, i never had the butcher or any thugs… i had just mad swarms of infected that were gassed and on fire. the game overall was pretty good, i liked it, the biggest let down was the fact that even as an unexperienced gamer, once i got to the roof of the prison it took me literally 3 minutes to beat the game. i expected a much bigger battle.


    On December 25, 2011 at 12:02 am


    the airplane doesn’t come up until much later in the jungle. I still haven’t reached it and I’m now at chapter 9. have you set up your PSN yet? also, if anyone else wants to join me for co-op please add me my PSN is moodyblues7606


    On December 25, 2011 at 1:22 pm

    How do u get the amplifier. We keep going into the workshop but it isn’t popping up please help?


    On December 26, 2011 at 8:29 pm

    Thanks so much!!!!!!!

    On December 28, 2011 at 10:23 am

    Finish the game for the 4th time today, 2 Xian, 2 Logan (blame the damned long-ass exp meter), I’d like to help the DI community.

    * plane mission Act 1, you will need to wait for Act 3 for it to actually be done for

    * Arena gate won’t open, never happened to me but once, where one Infected warrior got clipped through on the opening walls. Go up close and slash it dead. Go check it out if its the same prob.

    * About Ope’s mission, that guy is ing useless+idiot. I learn it for first time, the hard way. My advice, stack up some grenades, left him by reaching the village first, kill the thug, and throw some onto the group on the front.

    * Signal amplifier mission, you must complete another sub-mission on restoring the power supply, then the door will open, giving you workbench on the lighthouse and access to the amplifier.

    * 2 pack of juices from 2 gas station, the item drop zone is in front of the lifeguard tower’s workbench.

    * Killing Ram, zombie on a straight jacket, wait till it ram on you, evade to the right/left, and slash from behind. Just keep it at 3 max and back off, cause he will turn around and give you a kick.
    - He is having quite a high resistance to shock/lightning but not fire. So, burn his ass is the best way.
    - Even with my powered-up-weapon-thrower Logan, throwing done a very little damage than actually slashing/bashing him close. Grenade still pack a punch.

    * When it say continuous mission, its continuous. It will always be available when you travel back to any map who have it (that you have already activate the mission)

    * Your first gun on the game Act 1 will be a Revolver from Omar, a guy who ask you to escort him to the lifeguard’s tower. You can also find one on the floating areas on the sea (its connected even to the far up north of Act 1 map), but the place got some bunch of zombies and thugs to mind. A freakin group of Infected too, if you decided to take on House Full of Surprises mission.

    * On the second gas station juice pack mission, you will see some electricity running on the ground, where you will die if you tried to cross it. There are 3 switch to turned off, one in the warehouse at the back of the station, one on the garage on the left of the station, and the last one was quite far, on the stage on top of the tunnel nearby, with the occasional flaming Infected visiting you. Need to turn all 3 off before you can climb the station. Ignore the thug and just jump in.

    * About Yerema stuck on the stairs not going up even after you clean the zombies in the area on bringing her to Dr. West, just quit game and continue back. Nothing can actually be done to fix this one glitch. Supposedly, she still see ‘things’. xD

    * After rescuing Nikolai, who claimed its definitely not the Russians who shot his chopper down, he will prompt you on a mission on getting his satellite call through. When you reach Moresby, the mission updated but nothing should be done here. When you reach the jungle, then you can see it. Its best done after you grab 2 weapons box Matutero asked you on the story mission (cause you gonna past the same road on the way back, the Russian base).
    Trivia: Nikolai friend’s boat got capped by White’s chronies, as stated on the Nick recordings of Spy Game mission.

    * Need a shovel ? Check gas stations and front of Matutero’s crib, there is always one there.

    * Champagne is randomly found in fridges. Make sure you check thoroughly after you enter the hotel during Wheels of Steels mission, after you accepted that security’s mission. Hell lot of fridges there, with a bonus of 15+ Walkers and a Thug.

    * During the mission where Dr. West asked you to take some blood samples from the natives, the GPS got ed up. Just, follow the roads on the left of the laboratory, up the hills.

    * On an Act 3 mission where you need to find a necklace at the falls, its actually on top of the bus, inside a bag. (you said you throw it away, woman). Just need some run+jump on top of it.

    Sorry for not being specific with mission’s name, I can’t remember all. Besides, its my workplace’s Xbox I’m playing at xD
    This a necro and slow info I’m posting, but I just hope it can help some others.

    Happy to help, and help some more later. >:3

    wheres the sercurity card at the hotel on chapter 3 cant find it……..


    On December 28, 2011 at 8:13 pm

    @ Sinclair
    The one that you need to enter the hotel ? It lies on the ground near the 2 thugs. Kill them both and the card will be available to be picked. Sometimes, their dead body fall onto it, covering the card, so kick em dead bodies to pick it.


    On December 28, 2011 at 8:19 pm

    Note: There will ALWAYS be one dead body inbetween the thugs. The card is next to him.

    So I’m having the same problem as everyone else when I try to escort Ope. I started with $59,000 and a full supply of weapons all between 500 and 700 for damage and four or five guns. My last checkpoint saved me so close to everything that by the time I spawn, the hoard is already coming at Ope and me. I used some molotovs, but the hoard managed to reach Ope before they burned to death, and they just set him on fire. I don’t have anything explosive. All of my weapons are wrecked, I’ve lost about $5,000 dollars with every death so I’m broke, and I’m stuck in autosave limbo. Rage won’t charge at all either. Seemingly no way out. I finished it at one point, when rage actually worked and my weapons were fine, but as I was recovering health with apples, Ope went ahead and got himself blown up by a suicider. Looks like I can’t play DI anymore.

    On January 5, 2012 at 1:08 am

    I have beaten DI four times as well completed well over 120 missions my first time through the game so far I’ve completed it twice with Purna and twice with sam b.ok ope escort I really through every single game have always completed it with only melee weapons also tossed some firearms in just for kicks but I never had problems with him dying except my first time playing through,just get a good high damaging weapon actually several in your quick inventory I’ve found a good machete or sword takes out a crowd quick infected heads usually come smooth off if u catchem on the charge kick alot and the jump kick knocks all zombies minus thugs floaters to the ground instantly even more than one if u catchem close together it takes alot of stamina tho so be careful,use Suiciders to ur advantage catchem in a group just shootem a couple times they blow right up or just get close till they start convulsing and jump backwards a couple times gets u away alot faster than running as far as the missions go I found them all pretty easy for the most part and after oh bout 1000 hrs or so of playing I can say I have completed every single mission,sidequest in the game found all the skulls have every mod including developers modes and have ALMOST found every legendary weapon still looking for the defender of the motherland and the Viking of the south but think they are random drops


    On January 5, 2012 at 1:11 am

    Oh and if it’s a ps3 ur playing on just hold down circle to activate rage I really hardly ever use mine you will know when it activates by seeing in infrared


    On January 5, 2012 at 1:41 am

    Another thing that not alot of players take advantage of is meat bait throw a couple those out there and the zombies will literally go ape and dive for it works really well for distracting large groups long enough to hackem to pieces from behind and if u like firearms nothing like the good ol kick and up close shotgun headshot but it’s more like head splatter just gotta be quick on the sight aim after the kick but gotta have ur weapons fully upgraded that helps more than anything and I know it’s not always possible to avoid but don’t use them till their completely worn out they suffer penalties on their base peramiters when u do don’t be afraid to kick a zombie down and run away don’t have to killem all now after all u can only go up to level 50 maximum anyway can’t even totally max out the skill tree it’s bs but I love this game and really hope that the possible sequel dead world comes to fruition


    On January 5, 2012 at 5:57 am

    On Ope’s escort mission, its best to take down the thug on the left first. Even if the crowd of Walker and Butcher is already swarming on Ope, its actually a good sign for some random Slice ‘n’ Dice. That is what I do to get over it on the first time.

    Oh when you done with the village, make sure you follow that Dope fast, because there is a Suicider up front, and that stupid guy won’t hesitate to hit it, making you go FUUUUUUUUU if you need to repeat the village again.

    I just finished Purna @ 5th DI game of mine and managed to max her lvl before finishing it and I gotta say, LVL 50 Zed’s Demise is a beast.

    @ Chris
    I’m with you here.


    On January 5, 2012 at 12:15 pm

    Bout champagne look I farm the stuff if I’m in a tight spot and need quick diamonds the abandoned house or square in fast travel in the city has two refrigerators one or both have brand champagne in them just fast travel from there to the lighthouse and back it will reset the all the stuff in the house and you can get more then go trade them to svetiana for diamonds,for cash I farm the laboratory in the jungle there’s like ten safes in the lab and surrounding bungalows same thing as with champagne u have to do an area transition though before they will reset


    On January 6, 2012 at 6:21 pm

    Look in the refrigerators in the hotel kitchen for champagne. There’s tons of it. It’s also a good place to get alcohol.


    On January 6, 2012 at 6:45 pm

    BTW, where is the dead body with the key for the Gold Digger quest? I’m trying to complete all the sidequests on my 2nd playthrough. Oh, and to do Ope’s escort quest,try co-op. I did it with help from (I think) two other people, but I know it was co-op. I haven’t had any glitches yet, except when I did Black Hawk Down, I got to the little cliff where all of the zombies were trying to get you but couldn’t reach you, I threw a molotov, and even though Nikolai (not a Black Ops reference BTW) was 15 feet behind me, he caught on fire, too. He burned, but didn’t die, and his entire character model turned black. XD After I got to the bunker and got the quest to get him a cell phone, got the Brown Skull, and came back, he had disappeared. Sorry my post was so long.


    On January 8, 2012 at 9:43 am

    “After this, activate the weapons box quest and take the truck route all the way back. Again, you’ll put the boxes in shaded spaces where they need to rest.”

    Where are the shades spaces located?????? They’re not showing for me!


    On January 8, 2012 at 11:41 am

    im on the mission where you kill afran, but there is no ing afran. what the ? stupid ass game. so now im stuck.

    On January 14, 2012 at 8:03 am

    @ alex, jan 8 post. i had the same problem. if you havent alrdy, connect to the internet, and download the latest patch. fixes the problem


    On January 15, 2012 at 4:34 pm

    Check the male body up against the sort of the hotel behind the bus with all the luggage around it for the golddigger key he’s wearing a ballcap and shorts


    On January 17, 2012 at 6:10 am

    When Yerema is stuck under the stairs it’s because she there is a clipping issue. If you try yourself you actually can’t walk under a portion of it. There is another solution to get her out. Pop a deo-bomb behind her so that when it explodes it blows her out from under the stairs.
    Not too close though or you’ll kill her and load checkpoint with her under the stairs again.


    On January 21, 2012 at 9:31 am

    @ Darren
    The shades are on the front of Matutero’s hut. If you look, there is a spade there. The shades is nearby. (it’ll get visible to your vision when you approach it).

    On February 17, 2012 at 3:42 pm

    Hi all, my brother and I are making our way through Dead Island (mostly my brother, I just enjoy watching as I suck at games like this), and we’re stuck on one section of the island. He’s done all the quests except the repeatable ones like bringing alcohol to Stanley and water to Kate, and has explored the entire section he’s on, but can’t figure out how to get across to other areas. 10% plot progress, pretty sure he’s on Chapter 2. Thanks!


    On February 17, 2012 at 3:52 pm

    btw, it’s the resort area we’re stuck in.


    On February 18, 2012 at 7:08 pm

    On April 5, 2014 at 12:12 am

    Ope keeps walking back and forth. He won’t jump of the rock to go to my boat. What do I do?


    On August 31, 2014 at 11:52 am

    So I’m on Chapter 14 I think, and I’m on “The Purest Evil” (83%). I have no updatees for the game, in case that helps, but I’m escorting Yerema to the lab in the jungle and we get to the staircase to head into the lab and she just sits there like an idiot looking around “Where are you?!” “Is it safe”?!”. I’ve reloaded the game from the last checkpoint a few times to see if it’s just a glitch, and I have even went ahead to the lab, killed everything in my way, and she still sits there. I’ve been stuck on thus for a while and it’s really starting to piss me off. Help anyone?!


    On November 20, 2014 at 9:14 pm

    Problem! Haven’t played in forever but when we loaded up DI on my ps3 it loaded to the title screen just fine but when we load up new or continue everythings gone…the boat you start on all you see is the rain, I see my minimap, lifebar and selected weapon… when I look up and around I see weird yellow shapes…. also have the random noises from the ship you start on….
    Please anyone know what’s going on?
