Dead Island Riptide Dead Zones Locations For Rare Items Farming


Dead Island: Riptide includes these optional dungeons scattered throughout sections of the various areas called Dead Zones. The Dead Zones are rather similar to the Abandoned House maps from the first game. The basically consist of a small map filled with zombies as well as a ‘boss’ zombie that the players must defeat in order to clear the zone.

There are a great number of Dead Zones in Dead Island: Riptide, and they can sometimes be hard to find. Therefore, we have decided to compile this guide that will provide you with the locations of the entrances of the Dead Zones as well as the names of the boss zombies that they contain.

      I wanted to share my secret to farm suicider meat, While at the very first camp you get a quest from Zoey to obtain 4 pieces of it, while this quest is active any suicider you encounter and kill will drop it … so all you have to do is not turn in the quest until you are satisfied that you have enough in your inventory. I know of 2 weapon mods that require 2 pieces of it, so bear that in mind, now on with the technique.

      My favorite method is not to waste ammo, so use the nail gun you got from a previous quest, you may want to invest in upgrading it fully first. At the camp there are 2 burnt out bridges and they will also spawn there so just run back and forth jumping the gap to reach them (they respawn very fast, as soon as you are the done with one the other will be waiting for you!) The one bt Zoey is always alone, the one in the back by the truck has the static bodies that reanimates when you get near so get into a rhythm and you can probably use the suicider to take them out for you!

      I was able to get 20 pieces in about 20 minutes give or take, meh

      All the monsters are in the DR.s log, but i didnt get the trophy. Could i have missed killing one?

      • Lovey

        I went back through the dead zones just to make sure that I got them all. The Dr.’s log listed them all, but I still found two that were not killed.

      Could you update and tell us whats in the Dead Zones to collect?

      • alienzerox .

        It might be easier to tell you what you can only find in Henderson.

        Blanket, CynoGlue, H I Tape, Hi C Wire & Lt Frame can only be found in Henderson DZs [for the team quests]

        Water Purifier Pills & Diamonds … altho I think I may have found some of the pills in the jungle but I may be wrong … these are the blues that I recall.

        • alienzerox .

          forgot to add that I was able to complete all but two team quests in the jungle on the first play thru … during the second I did all of them while still in the first camp since inventory carries over that goes for storage also
