If you're trying to find the Dead Island 2 Curtis' Safe key, then you've heard Curtis Sinclair calling for help through his intercom. This is one of the first side quests you'll discover in Dead Island 2, close to Emma Jaunt's mansion, and once you help the vintage screen hero to clear out his unwanted guests he'll move across the road to stay at EJ's. During the course of that mission you'll find and use several Dead Island 2 keys, but if you explore the mansion fully you'll discover Curtis' Valuables Safe with no obvious way of opening it. You're going to have to come back later to get inside, so here are the details on how to get Curtis' Safe key in Dead Island 2.

Curtis' Valuables Safe is found inside his wine storage room, near the rear entrance by the staff restrooms and opposite the utility room by the garage side door. To find Curtis' Safe key in Dead Island 2, you need to head out into the rear area and look for a giant monogrammed crest on the ground. This area should be marked as a Screamer Hot Spot on your map, and if it isn't you may need to come back after progressing further through the story.

You can avoid Screamer attacks by blocking, which will let you to get close enough to start landing attacks on them, and a well-placed curveball should also be enough to interrupt their shriek.
