Where to find Dead Island 2 Electrician’s Toolbox Key

Electrician’s toolbox key in Dead Island 2 can be obtained by killing a zombie named Faulty Electrician. The said zombie is roaming in an area Northwest of the Electrician toolbox location. This area is blacked out on the map and is right next to the sewers.

Make your way to the area and you will find a gaping hole in the road. This pit is filled with water and the faulty electrician zombie can be found near an ambulance.

Faulty Electrician can be a difficult fight if you go up close and try to take it down with melee attacks. Faulty Electrician uses electric attacks which can chip away at your health at a rapid pace. Combine those electric attacks with the water surrounding you and an imminent death is all but guaranteed for you. 

The best way to take down the Faulty electrician is from a distance using ranged weapons. Attacking the faulty electrician will summon a few other zombies too which are a bit more powerful than your main target.

Clear the area of zombies and collect the Electrician’s toolbox key from the Faulty electrician’s body. Head back to the apartment building and open the Electrician toolbox to obtain Superior Ranged Mutilator Mod. This mod gives physical damage and stamina boost against weakened zombies and is one of the best mods available in Dead Island 2.
