If you’ve found a Strange Lock Box/Safe/Box that doesn’t have a Lock Box map icon, then it will open in a different way. Usually it is part of a side quest.

To open 49 of the 51 lockers, you must track down a named, unique zombie that spawns somewhere nearby.

These named zombies are always in the same zone as the locker, and many of them are or will be within 100 meters of it. However, they may not appear until much later in the game. may be in an unusual, hidden or independent location; and/or can be an Apex Infector, such as a Crusher, Butcher, or Screamer.

Expect a named zombie to be significantly tougher than its generic equivalent, with inflated health and damage. Named Mutators in particular are among the toughest fights ever dead island 2

It’s not immediately obvious what determines when and where a named zombie spawns. Some are available once you reach a specific map, others only appear during the day or night. Some just take a long time to appear. Our current hypotheses are:

  • Certain zombies spawn as Apex Infected, meaning they won’t spawn until you reach the point in the story where those Apex were introduced. For example, butchers don’t appear in Hell-A until you complete Boardwalking Dead, neither do so-called butchers.
  • The trigger for a named zombie spawn can be overridden by other main or side quests taking place in or around its spawn point. The Military Courier appears in the Halperin Hotel lobby, but not when you are on The Rav-Ages of Caustic X side quest, which takes place in the ballroom; Once you complete this quest, the Military Courier will often spawn right after it.

If you kill a named zombie but leave the map before picking up its key, that zombie will respawn in roughly the same spot the next time you visit. If it is killed a second time, it will drop its key again.
