The Ram, Butcher,Â SuiciderÂ and my mother in law. How to guide on killing Dead Island zombies.
Zoknowsgaming has dwelved into the pit of hell and put together a excellent guide on beating Dead Island enemy’s.
Dead Island walkers
Your classic zombie. Slower than a wet rag but deadly with his homies.
How To Handle Them: These guys are nothing special and probably the most commonly encountered zombie in Dead Island. They are slow and cumbersome. Kicks are very effective against them and once they are on the ground they are easy to take out. Against large groups a fiery cocktail works wonders and will turn them to ash. Any melee weapon works just fine and I wouldnâ€™t waste my precious ammo on these guys.
Dead Island Infected
Best described as your classic “28 days later” zombie. Aggressive, agile and fast enough to catch you buy surprise with your pants down.
How To Handle Them:Â Saying these guys are fast is an understatement. If you donâ€™t watch yourself and heed their screams youâ€™ll find yourself quickly overwhelmed if 2 or more get on you. If you hear them scream you better get ready,Â donâ€™t try and run, youâ€™ll just die tired. If you can, put an obstruction between you and them and try to keep them at bay. An example would be jumping on top of a car and kicking them down to the ground, or getting behind a desk and using a longer weapon to give you the advantage. While taking them out at range is a good option, I still wouldnâ€™t break out the firearms to cope with them.
Dead Island Floater
Looking like a fat kid who loves cake, these puffy bastards not only take a beating and then some, they’ll chunder on you from a distance.
How To Handle Them: Okay so these guys have a ranged attack, but they are very slow on the move. When alone, there not too hard to deal with but grouped with other enemies they can be a real problem. If you encounter one on his lonesome, Iâ€™ve found that I you can spam kick it to death. Just run up on him and kick the hell out of him as fast as you can hit the kick button. It might take a bit, but youâ€™ll be safe, not take damage, and save durability on your weapons. When grouped with other enemies, itâ€™s best to lure those other enemies to you while staying out of the range of his projectile attack, and then after youâ€™ve slain the others, go kick his ass.
Dead Island Thug Zombies
Huge sons of bitches who spent to much time in the gym before getting infected. Not the fastest but one of the most powerful.
How To Handle Them:Â Think of these guys as the jocks you went to school with, theyâ€™re big and stupid. The best way Iâ€™ve found to kill them without getting slammed is to outsmart them, which is easily done. Get one to follow you and put an obstruction between you and him like a desk or a gravestone. He will walk into it and keep walking straight into it trying to get to you. In my opinion blunt objects work well against these guys, as Iâ€™ve yet to be able to actually sever through their limbs with an edged weapon. At any rate, once they are walking into the obstruction use hit and run tactics smack him and then back off let him swing then go back and punish him some more. Â Sometimes an obstruction isnâ€™t available. Get out a cocktail and give him what for, usually one will do the trick, just hit him with one then keep your distance and let the fire do the work for you. Iâ€™ve tried guns on them in the past and it is not a very effective option.
