Dead Island Weapons List : Tools Of The Trade

Share And Comment

Slaying zombies is a lot of work, and just wouldn’t be possible without the right tools for the job. Sometimes we find ourselves in inopportune situations, but we make the best out of them with what we have.. even the lowly broom stick could save your life in your darkest hour.

If you’ve played Dead Island, then you know each weapon has various grades, such as flimsy, unreliable, defective, and the list just goes on and on. In order to save you from reading the same weapon 30 times and to save me hours and hours of typing we’ve just listed the types of weapons without the grades, as they are essentially the same weapon just with better or worse attributes. I’ve also left out most modded weapons as we plan to make an article dedicated just to weapon mods soon.

Dead Island is huge as you may know, but I’ve done my best to provide you with the most comprehensive weapons guide out there. Rest assured I will be coming back here to add any new weapons I find, and if you know of one that was left off the list feel free to leave a comment so we can add it.  Check back often!
