Dead Island Riptide Walkthrough and Guide

The Storm

Before starting the game, you have the option to import your character from the previous Dead Island game. Should you need to start a new character, you'll be given options on what type of character skill set to start with. You can always opt to select Custom to start the game with 14 available points for you to freely distribute on your own. Should you decide to import your previous character, you’ll be pitted against high level zombies without your high-level equipment.

Exit the room and check out the other rooms to find some materials/ components. Open the door to the next room. Go through the vent to reach the other room then grab the crowbar from the hatch door. In the dark room, activate your flashlight and proceed to the next hallway. Go past another room and grab the police baton on the floor. There's also a cabinet nearby you can loot. Head to the next room with the workbench then go upstairs.

After the explosion, exit the room and take the ladder down then take another ladder up to the next room. Operate the panel to stop the gas flow. There's also a large med kit near the ladder. Grab it and backtrack to the previous ladder so you can cross the previously burning walkway.

Kill the walkers along the way then take out a few more in the next room. There's a lot of items and weapons here so grab them all and be careful of the walkers on the floor that will ambush you. Go upstairs and kill the walker by the door. Clear the hallway and the mess hall. You can clear if you want for extra exp and loot. There's a lot of energy drinks there that you can consume to recover your health. Once ready, proceed to the flooded hallway.

There will be several walkers that will attack you along the way. Take them out and check out the individual rooms for items. You'll find a workbench along the way but I suggest conserve your money and just rely on the basic weapons you'll find along the way instead of repairing what you have. Continue to the flooded engine room and open the large hatch. Kill the remaining walkers and take the ladder to the upper deck.

You can find a pistol, shotgun and a lot of ammo here. Drop a couple of your weakest melee weapons and take these ranged weapons. Make sure they're fully reloaded and grab as much ammo as you can carry. Go around the deck and follow the straightforward path. Kill the infected and walkers along the way.

Go around the cargo deck and find your way past the containers. There are a lot of walkers waiting below so it will be a good idea taking them out with headshots using your shotgun or pistol. Climb the ladder for a scene.

After the scene, you'll be given a rifle. Aim for the suicider in the middle of the group then aim for the heads of the walkers. A few infected will appear as well so take them out before concentrating your fire on the boss zombie. Once taken out, follow the colonel to the bridge. It will be locked so backtrack a bit and climb up the ladder.

Kill the two walkers outside the door and head inside. Kill the enemies inside and open the door for let the Colonel in. The quest will be completed afterward.

Be careful if you use the same character for a second playthrough, after completing the game I started again but didn't get the option to begin at chapter 1. Ran through the prologue and at the end I lost all my level 70 weapons and had them replaced with one level 70 white knife.
