Dead Island 2 is filled with various weapons for players to choose from clearing out the zombie hordes. However, as you are combating these zombies across the map, your favorite weapons may lose their effectiveness because of their constant use. That is where the Dead Island 2 workbenches come in.
There are plenty of workbench locations in the Dead Island 2, and not only can you repair your weapons there but you can also upgrade and modify them with newer perks and mods to improve stats, provided you have the blueprints. You can also scrap the weapons that are of no use to you as this will earn you some other resources.
Workbenches, therefore, are the key to success in Dead Island 2. Here are the exact locations you need to go to find Workbenches in Dead Island 2.
