Dead Island 2 side quests walkthrough - how to unlock and what rewards you can get

There are many additional activities in Dead Island 2, including side quests. Some will be available from the start of the passage, and to open others you will need to advance through the story. In this guide, we will explain how to start and complete all the side quests in the game, as well as describe the rewards available.

How to track available tasks

Additional quests in Dead Island 2 open gradually, so you can easily miss some of them. To find available tasks, it is enough to look at the map of regions from time to time (section "El-Hey").

Side quests are marked with a blue marker. You just have to get to the desired area and track their location.

Killer party. How to Restore Power to the Curtis House

Area: Bel Air.

This is the first side mission that can be completed in Dead Island 2. Once you exit through the back door of the new friends' house, follow the path ahead and deal with two groups of zombies. At the gate on the right, you will hear the voice of a man from the intercom. Answer him to start the quest.

When the gate opens, watch the scene with the dying girl and go to the courtyard of the mansion. Kill another group of ghouls and talk to Curtis.

He will ask you to fix the electricity in order to turn on the lift. Go down the stairs and open the door. You can power the house with a canister of water. It is enough to pour water on the floor. The canister is in the courtyard, next to the metal archway.
