Dead Island 2 Body Art Quest Guide

Body Art is a series of quests in Dead Island 2 through which you can get the Brutalizer weapon and we are here to help you finish them.

Dead Island 2 is filled with plenty of more intimidating and exciting Side quests than the main storyline. Among these side quests, Body Art side quest series is necessary to complete if you want to get the Brutalizer legendary weapon. These side quests are given by Francesca and have you traveling to a bunch of places all over the map.

Body Art in Dead Island 2 is arguably one of the most tedious side quests in the game. The full Body Art series requires you to collect a handful of a specific body part dropped by a specific zombie divided into six quests. Before you can start the Body Art side quest, you will have to complete The Giant Slayer, Resurrect the Rex, and The Ballad of Rikky Rex.

Where to find Francesca

Francesa gives you the Body Art side quest. She can be found in Beverly Hill, in the house (marked on the map) with the workbench in the garage.

Being an artist, Francesca decided that she is going to improvise and make use of her situation, a.k.a the zombie apocalypse, and make art from whatever she can get her hands on.

Dead Island 2 Body Art: The Visionary

Objective: Collect 10x Infected Flesh

Reward: 1000 XP

Francesca will tell you about her master plan on your first meeting and will ask you to deliver ten pieces of Infected flesh. Infected flesh is very commonly dropped by any kind of Zombie. So this part can be easily cleared by going out on a killing spree, and you will have all ten pieces, and your quest will be completed. Head back to Francesca to finish the quest.

Dead Island 2 Body Art: Heft

Objective: Collect 5x Oversized Arm Bones

Reward: 1500 XP.

The second time you will visit Francesa, she will not be there but you will find the trigger for the next part of the Body Art side quest as a note on the board. This time, you will have to collect five pieces of oversized arm bones. These bones are dropped by Crushers and Inferno Crushers.

The drop rate is pretty decent; you can find many of these swoll zombies around Venice Beach. If you can’t see any, just fast-travel to another location and come back to see more of them spawned.

Dead Island 2 Body Art: Moist

Objective: Collect 5x Chthonic Ichor

Reward: 2000 XP.

Upon your third visit to Francesca, you will be tasked with collecting five Chthonic Ichors. Slobbers and its variants drop these. Finding zombies gets progressively hard with each quest, and Slobbers are no exception to the fact

A good hotspot for Slobbers to spawn is in Beverly Hills, in the house (marked on the map), where you will find Obi’s Key for the Clean and Snatch quest.

Once again, if you want them to spawn over and over again, just fast-travel to another location and come back to see them there.

Body Art: Uproar

Objective: Collect 5x Infected Spines

Reward: 2500 XP

After delivering the Chthonic Ichor, you will now be sent by Francesca to find five Infected Spines. These spines can be found in Screamers. These zombies are quite annoying to kill because of their ears hurting screams and screeches.

Along with being rare, they are also a pain to take down. The best way is to shoot them from a distance using a sniper or by using projectiles. You can find these screamers easily outside Francesca’s house and some other spots around Beverly Hills.

Body Art: Vigor

Objective: Collect 3x Blade Arms

Reward: 3000 XP

Next up on the list is Blade Arms. These chainsaw-looking arms are attached to a zombie named Butcher. You will need to be a little on your toes to kill them as they are deadly and a force to be reckoned with.

One good thing is that you can find plenty of them at the Santa Monica Pier and at the Metro (marked in yellow).

Body Art: Dread

Objective: Collect 3x Mutated Hearts

Reward: 4000 XP

The last item you will be sent to collect for Francesca’s Art Piece is three Mutated Hearts. As the name suggests, these can be found in Mutators. These zombies are like a tank, quite literally. They are exceptional at close and long-range combat, so it is suggested to proceed cautiously.

Now, there are two situations when it comes to locating these monsters. The first one is that you have completed the main storyline and after that Mutator will become common and you can find them all around. If you haven’t, in that case, there is a hotspot for Mutator.

You are likely to encounter a Mutator at the Metro exit on Hollywood Boulevard.

Body Art: Unveiling

Objective: Visit Francesca last time.

Reward: 1500 XP, Brutalizer Legendary Weapon.

After you have collected all of the pieces for her masterpiece, go back to her house. This time she will not be in the garage but she will be around the back of the house alongside her art, made out of the body parts you just delivered. This will conclude the Body Art Side Quest and you will be awarded the Brutalizer.

Body Art quest glitch

In some cases, you may get stuck between different objectives in the Body Art quest in Dead Island 2. You may complete one objective or quest but the game doesn’t give you the next one. This isn’t a bug or a glitch. The condition appears only when you’re playing through other quests simultaneously.

One fix is to wait a day in-game for the game to register the changes in objectives and quests. You can also increase your distance between the quest giver and yourself. Get her out of your draw distance and she should spawn regularly and give you the next objective.
