[top]Introduction


Our four characters from Dead Island are back. Xian Mei, Sam B, Purna and Logan Carter are ready to fight endless waves of zombies in a remote bunker located in the Resort.
This DLC offers 4 different arenas in which the player is able to execute one of the biggest bloodbaths in gaming history and it’ll first end when the last man either quits or dies.

The holocaust of the Infected is about to start! So what are you waiting for? Get in there and blow out some zombie brains!

Below you'll find the cutscene that is shown the first time you enter the arena

[top]Entering the Arena

The arenas are located in a remote bunker. You'll find it in a collapsed bunker in the northwest part of The Resort.
Only if the player has travelled to The Prison, it is impossible to travel to the bunker. If this is the case, either use a old save file, or complete the prison section of the game.

There are two ways to enter The Bunker:
  1. Go to any fast-travel location and you'll see a spot called "Arena Lobby". Simply press and you'll spawn right infront of Wes Teddle in The Arena lobby.
  2. You can drive/walk/run to The Bunker. The Bunker is located in "The Resort" and if you navigate to the left of your map and a bit up from the middle you'l see an incomplete road and a fast-travel icon.


[top]Roadmap


First of all find a co-op partner in this thread.
The trophies included in this DLC are easiest done in co-op. Therefore this roadmap focuses on a co-op run. All trophies but one can though be done in singleplayer. For further guidance refer to the individual trophies in the trophy descriptions.
Don't try to get these trophies at the same time! Instead do it individually. This will save you time in the long run.

Remember: Go one at the time with one using his/her best character!!


Both of you should use your best characters in this step!!

Start changing your combat mode to “Analog” then both of you enter Arena A. Use only your fist and legs in the first five waves. Now survive 10 more waves. If you prefer the “digital combat fight mode” change this after the trophy Stick it to the enemy pops. Now survive 15 more rounds together.

Trophies obtained in this step:
Wave and Smile
Out of honey? Chew bees!
Stick it to the enemy
Morituri te salutant
Death Incarnate



You’ll have to play this two times for both of you to get the trophies, since it’s hard with two low-level characters!!

Change your character, but one of you should play with his/her best character. Choose your 2 custom weapons and load up Arena D with your co-op partner. Throughout the first 10 waves you can only use your custom weapons. Play 5 more rounds and when you reach wave 16 quit the game.

Trophies obtained in this step:
Fancy



You’ll have to play this two times for both of you to get the trophies, since it’s hard with two low-level characters!!
Change your character once again and join Arena C. Survive 15 waves.



You’ll have to play this two times for both of you to get the trophies, since it’s hard with two low-level characters!!
Change your character one last time and load up Arena B. Survive 15 waves.

Trophies obtained in this step:
Looking for trouble
Gladiator school



You’ll have to play this two times for both of you to get the trophy because it’s quicker to restart than to wait for another ram/butcher etc.
Join Arena C and play to around wave 16 with one of you killing one of each “Special zombie”

Trophies obtained in this step:
Complete a set



Now clean up the remaining trophy or the trophies you didn’t complete in the other playthroughs.

Trophies obtained in this step:
Extreme Firefighting


[top]Trophies

[top]
Wave and Smile
Play any Arena in co-op.

After reaching the Arena lobby (see Tips and Strategies) you’ll spawn directly in front of the vendor Wes Tweddle. On both his sides you’ll find two staircases each leading up and down. In the top floor you’ll find Arena A (Easy) and Arena B (Very hard) and on the bottom floor you’ll find Arena C (Hard) and Arena D (Moderate)

To earn this trophy simply choose one of these arenas and as soon as you spawn inside this trophy will pop.

[top]
Extreme Firefighting
Set 5 enemies on fire and then kill them with explosives.

This trophy requires the player to set 5 zombies on fire and instead of letting the fire kill the undead the player must kill the living torches with explosives such as deo-bombs, grenades or explosive barrels or fuel tanks.
Since grenades seem very rare and uncommon in this game, I’ll recommend using the deo-bomb. You'll only need duct-tape and deodorants to build a deo-bomb and the mod is given by Mick Fler in the Resort Lighthouse after finishing the side quest, Tell Me Where It Hurts.

This trophy is not as hard as it sounds! You don't have to kill all 5 zombies in one go. It is though recommended to aim at larger groups of enemies since especially low-level players may not have a lot of deodorants to make the deo-bomb and therefore not many tries.

When I did this trophy I teleported to Arena B (Very hard) since the zombies will die from the Molotov in other arenas. I threw a Meat-bait to gather 6 zombies and immediately threw my Molotov into the mass. After this you have to be quick with the deo-bomb, since it takes about two seconds before it goes off and the zombies must be killed by the explosive and not the Molotov.

Here are two alternative ways to earn this trophy:

Out of honey? Chew bees!
Survive 5 waves using only your fists and legs.

This shouldn’t prove too difficult. Teleport to Arena A (Easy) and through the first 5 rounds only use your fists and legs. You can still repair your items and use Medkits and Energy Drinks, but no kills with weapons are allowed.

If your character is low-level find a co-op partner in this thread and focus on getting at least one kill during each of the 5 waves.

[top]
Complete a set
Kill enemies of 6 different types during a single round.

To achieve this trophy you need to kill all 6 types of zombies in one single arena match. Not in a single wave.
You’ll only be able to earn this trophy in Arena C (Hard) since it’s the only arena featuring the Ram zombie.
This is easily done in co-op so visit this page to find a partner, but the trophy can of course be obtained in single player mode as well.

You’ll have to reach level 14/15 before the last type of zombie will spawn.

Here’s a list of the different zombies and which level they usually appear in:
  • Walkers - Wave 1
  • Infected - Wave 6
  • Suicider - Wave 7
  • Floater - Wave 8
  • Ram - Wave 11
  • Butcher - Wave 14 or 15
It may differ from time to time which wave the different zombies appear in, but this seemed to be the average when I was playing.

[top]
Looking for trouble
Survive 5 waves in each of the 4 Arenas.

Simply take one of your characters and survive the first 5 waves of each arena. This is really doable, but if you find yourself in trouble you can always find a co-op partner in this thread.

[top]
Stick it to the enemy
Survive 15 consecutive waves using the analog combat controls.

Ahh.. The Analog Combat Controls are back! Instead of the Digital controls allowing you to attack with your weapon using you’ll have to switch to analog by pressing and navigate to "Options" where you’ll see different fans. Navigate to “Controls” and the last option in this fan is “Fight type” Now switch to “Analog”.

To attack you must hold down and swing away with

If you hate this combat system as much as I do, you can simply use kicks and guns. They work the same way on both Analog and Digital fight controls. When you reach wave 16 this trophy will pop.

[top]
Gladiator school
Survive 15 consecutive waves with each of the 4 characters.

This trophy is pretty self-explanatory. You have to complete 15 waves with all of the four characters Xian, Purna, Sam B and Logan.

The best way to do this is to find a co-op partner in this thread and let his/hers best character protect you.
This can of course be done offline, but even in Arena A (Easy) this will prove a challenge especially if your characters was as low-leveled as min (around 5-6)
Once you have survived 15 waves with ALL characters this trophy will pop.

[top]
Fancy
Survive 10 consecutive waves using only custom weapons.

Custom weapons are weapons with mods. A weapon like Zed's Demise or the Tijuana Machete is not a custom weapon. You need to fully repair one of your weapons at a workbench and navigate to the fan "Create". Now choose a mod to make a custom weapon.

You can't use anything but custom weapons. Nothing! Neither legs nor fists, not even head stomps! You are though allowed to use the and combination when a zombie crawl up on you.

If you don't have much money, one weapon is enough just remember to repair it often! It is however recommended to have at least two modified weapons with you.
My favourite setup was:
  • Zed's Demise w. Deathstalker mod
  • McCall's 9mm w. Pride gun mod
It's a good idea to use a gun since the Suicider zombies and the burning Infected zombies are pretty annoying to kill with melee weapons.

Once you completed 10 Consecutive waves with only custom weapons this trophy will pop.

[top]
Morituri te salutant
Survive 30 consecutive waves with at least one co-op player.

This trophy can be tricky especially for low-level players, but fear not.
There will always be the same amount of zombies even though four players are present. With four descent players this trophy is really easy, and even if your character sucks your partners will easily get you to wave 30.

Medkits are great. Loot as many as you can. They are quick to use and can help you out of a tight spot. Furthermore repair often! It is cheaper to repair at the end of every round instead of repairing when your weapon condition is dangerously low.

But go on dear friend, find some co-op partners. Visit this thread.

[top]
Death Incarnate
Survive wave 30.

This trophy will unlock just after clearing the 30th wave.
Please refer to Morituri te salutant
