"Better than the arm" is one of the achievements and trophies available in Dead Island: Riptide. It's a very self-explanatory achievement/trophy, as it's exactly what you need to do, kill 25 enemies with a chainsaw.

Guide[]

  • There are two chainsaws in the game you can get.
  • One is the end game 'legendary' orange rarity chainsaw that you get for killing Harlow, however it is permanently locked at level 25, regardless of player level.
  • The second, and better, one is a common grade rarity located inside the Abandoned Movie Set dead zone in the Flooded jungle. Even though it is only a white common rarity weapon, it scales with player level, resulting in a better, higher damage chainsaw than the end game one.
  • After this, simply kill zombies with it until you unlock the achieve.
  • In Riptide, chainsaws can be 'refuelled' at workbenches now, meaning that if your chainsaw ever degrades, you can simply repair it at a workbench and keep on going!
  • The killing blow only needs to be struck by a chainsaw for it to count, so you could damage a zombie to low health and finish them off with a chainsaw and it'd still count, but this is far slower and dangerous, as every time the hero takes out the chainsaw, they must pull the string to start it, leaving them vulnerable.
