Fire Breathing Short Shotgun
The final weapon we want to tell you about can be crafted
toward the end of the game. By this point, you’ll be a certified badass zombie
slayer with plenty of weapons, upgrades, and crafting materials in your inventory.
Superior rarity weapons will also be available, which allow you to add up to
three separate perks!
So here it is. Combine the Superior Short Shotgun with the
Cremator mod and the Hazardous, Russian Roulette, and Vampire perks.
When wielding this fiery shotgun, you’ll need to be up close
and personal with the undead. To stop you from being overwhelmed, the Russian
Roulette perk grants you a damage boost when your gun’s magazine is low, and Vampire
gives you a short burst of health back each time you perform a kill.
The Cremator mod ignites your shotgun’s shells, so they deal
fire damage to enemies upon impact. Blast them enough times, and they’ll
eventually become ignited and continue to be barbecued until the effect wears
off – or they turn to a crisp, of course.
With the Hazardous perk, when a status effect such as
ignited is applied to an enemy, a forceful explosion will be triggered that
will stagger nearby enemies, leaving them open for attack. This is a great
example of the types of synergies between mods and perks players can create in
Dead Island 2.
Pairing mods and perks with Skill Cards also allows players
to switch up their playstyle and maximise their slaying potential.
