All the keys in the Bel Air area

Bel Air is the starting area in Dead Island 2 where you begin your journey. There are many locked doors and safes here. Some will need to be opened in the story, while others - to get valuable items, money, and various loot. Below we have described where to find most of the keys in this region.

Where to find the keys to the house, the garage, and Curtis's safe

Curtis' house is located near the starting mansion, where you will meet the survivors. Passing by it you will hear a male voice from the intercom. If you answer, you will receive an additional task "Killer Party".

How to get the keys to Curtis' house

To do this, it is enough to kill the infected in the courtyard and power the house with a canister of water. When Curtis invites you in through the front door, also get rid of the group of ghouls. Having gone down, the owner of the house will give you the keys to all the rooms.

Where to Find the Keys to Curtis' Garage

Oddly enough, the keys to the garage are in the garage itself. You can see them on the workbench through the bars.

To get inside, go around the building on the left and press the button between the gates. The left door will open, and you just have to kill a few zombies and pick up the key.

Inside, you'll find supplies, a rake, fuel, and water canisters, and the Toughness weapon skill.

Where to find the key to Curtis' safe

This key can be obtained after you progress through the story and get to know the screamers. Until this moment, it is not possible to find the key to Curtis's safe.

Once you meet your first screamer, return to the mansion and look around the courtyard. There are several dry closets on the far right side of the building. Open one of them to make monsters appear. Kill them and inspect the bodies. Next to one of the corpses will lie the key to the safe.

How to find the key card from the "Zagon"

You will get to this mansion according to the main plot. You will need a key card not to get inside, but to get out of the penthouse. Getting into the mansion is very simple, just find the glass roof on the veranda and break it.

Going down, find the streamer. There will be a key card on the table.

Where to Find the Keys to the Goat Pen

To get this key, you need to complete the additional task "Earthly goods" (Creature Comforts). Until this moment, the key in the mansion simply will not appear.

If you have fulfilled the condition, go back and climb to the balcony above the pool. Here you will see a window that you can break and enter the room.

Also break the glass railing to run and jump to the window. Inside, examine the left cabinet next to the bed. After completing the above task, the master key will appear here.

You can also go up to the floor above and jump down to the balcony with two sun loungers.

Breaking the glass will set off the alarm. Disable it as soon as possible. In the same room, you will find the Weighting skill, an audio recording, and some supplies.

Where to find the key to Brock's safe in the Corral

In the streamer room to the left of the bed, you will find a safe. To open it, you need another key. But getting it is not as easy as it might seem at first glance.

Here is the procedure you need to follow to get the key:

  1. Complete the "Room Service for Major Booker" quest at the Halperin Hotel.
  2. Return to the "Zagon" and follow the gym.
  3. Kill a strong monster here, which will drop the key to Brock's safe.
The safe contains a random rare weapon.

As soon as you get to the hotel, the task will be updated, and you will have to kill a huge crowd of enemies. According to the plot, you can’t get around them, so you have to fight to the last monster. When you're done, examine the table in the center of the room. Here lies the key.

Cell Key #33

Continue following the story until the Major contacts you. Having reached the second floor, find a note between the two elevators and press the call button. This elevator will not take you to the third floor, but you can pick up the key.

Cell Key #14

From the previous place where you called the elevator and found the key, follow the passage on the right and overcome the blockage. Here you will find a chemical bomb and you can put out the fire at the entrance to room 208.

Enter this room and examine the bed on the left. More to the left on the floor are the keys.

Cell Key #49

Climbing up to the third floor, you will quickly come across a locked door. There will be a ventilation grate on the left above the bed - climb into it. The quest marker indicates that you need to move to the right, but we suggest going in the opposite direction. Here you will find the keys.

You can find this safe in a small gatehouse in front of the hotel. The door of the building will be locked with a magnetic key, but you can get to the safe through the window.

To get the key, you first need to complete the "Room Service for Major Booker" story mission. If you have already done this, return to the gatehouse and inspect the area. You need to go down to the underground parking lot, where a unique enemy will appear - the same infected guard, after defeating which you can get the key.

It is worth noting that next to him there will also be a boss named Crusher. It is not necessary to kill him, but it will be quite difficult to deal with the guard in his presence. The safe contains a random rare weapon.
