Dead Island Cheats

  • Unlimited Money

    Entry location: After the Exodus quest
    This is a very simple cheat, and can be done very early in the game. It can be achieved when you first clear the Lifeguard Tower area for Sinamoi (EXODUS Quest). Once you have completed the Quest he will tell you that there are other people around that need some help, and he will be in the lifeguard tower office. This is when you can get unlimited money, it will take time, but if you’re low on cash, why not!

    Anyway, the game will save and this will be your last checkpoint saved. There’s a paddle ($27 Value) in that office, right next to the door (left side corner). If you take the paddle it will be added to your inventory, now load the last checkpoint saved, you should still have the paddle in your inventory; however, a new paddle will respawn in that same location, so keep taking the paddle and then loading your last checkpoint saved until your inventory is full. Next step, once your inventory is full, is to go down stairs, and sell those paddles to Wayne (Shop Trader). After you sell them load your last checkpoint saved, and you will notice that you still have the money from selling the paddles, now just keep doing this until you have the desired amount of money, and that’s it!

  • Duplicating/money weapons cheat

    This cheat works with any weapon except guns. For example, you have a machete but no money. With the machete equipped press LT and aim your weapon at the ground, then press RT and Y together and you'll throw the weapon to the floor and another will fall. Pick up both and repeat as desired. Take all weapons you picked up to the weapon trader and sell the extras.

    Entry location: any drivable pickup truck
    at any point when your driving a two seater pickup go around to the back to the tailgate and the license plate is
    D24D 1574ND

Dead Island Glitches

  • Weapon Duplicate

    Entry location: During game play
    To duplicate the weapon you have equipped hold down L1 as if you are about to throw the item, then hold down triangle and press R1. If you do this correctly you should throw down the exact replica of the item in hand. The catch is it will duplicate it down to the durability of the weapon, so if it is about to break, the others that you make will have low durability.

Dead Island Hints

  • Safe, easy kills

    If your getting creamed out there and running out of stamina, jump on a car bonnet or hood and walk up to the roof of the car. Stay there and you can punch, slash or even shoot those pesky undead untill their more dead. It works extra well on the hard zombies that require a ton of hits to make them deader.

  • Fast health

    Entry location: When drinking an energy drink
    When you need to drink some cola whilst getting swarmed by some zeds, usually you can't because you actually drink it and not just consume it's sugary goodness just by touching it. So, to skip the drinking animation, all you got to do is Kick as soon as your character puts it to their mouth, and bam, one health square.
