There’s more to do on the island of Banoi than just curb-stomping
zombies and running perilous errands for people who claim they’re too busy (we’re
looking at you Sinamoi). There are over 150 collectibles to find that are good
for two achievements/trophies: “Gotta
find ‘em all” (60 found) and “Nearly There” (120 found). We’ve mapped out the
locations of these collectibles for all four of the game’s major areas and have searched every corner of the game’s
sub-areas so that you can make quick and easy work of this daunting task. Happy
Every collectible has an accompanying text description. Those
found in a sub-areas have screenshots as well, since there are no maps for
these smaller sections.
Note: due to some of
Dead Island’s infamous bugs, we were unable to locate a few of the collectibles.
Fortunately, there are more than 150 in the game, which is far more than the
120 required for the achievement/trophy. On top of that, the game’s internal
counter for the achievement progress seems to be buggy (on Xbox 360 at least),
so you may earn your achievement long before hitting 120. We certainly did!

out would then be the quick travel map on the wall. Yay bugs!
