I'm feeling lucky, friend, so trust me, my plan's gonna work.
— Bruno

Bruno is one of the six slayers in Dead Island 2. Prior to the outbreak, he was a hustler on the streets of Los Angeles, California before becoming trapped in the quarantine area during the outbreak.


Bruno is a calculating hustler who always has a plan, both for pulling off heists on big-time scammers and spammers before the zompocalypse and for taking down the undead now. Born and raised on the streets of LA, he’s always hidden his lethal knife skills behind his disarming Californian charm. Those skills ensure that his targets won’t talk about Bruno – no, no.

He wears a purple camo zip up hoodie, a pale pink t-shirt with the word 'infernal' on the chest against a black and red rectangle, blue plaid shorts, knee high white socks, and black, white, and blue sneakers, as well as a black beanie, gold-rimmed glasses, two black holsters across his chest and waist, a bandage on his lower left arm, a gold watch on his left wrist, and a black ring on his left pointer finger.
