Full Metal Jacket is a hard difficulty main quest given to the Hero by Titus Kabui in Dead Island.


The Hero must travel to the armory to get weapons to arm Titus and his men, so they can be protected against the zombies in the prison.


  • Talk to Titus to start the quest.
  • He wants his men to be armed so they're not so scared of the zombies in the prison. He wants you to get to the armoury and bring back all the guns you find there.
  • Head down the corridors out of the canteen until you reach the prisoner guarding the stairs up. Use the waypoints that appear on your minimap.
  • Head up the stairs and follow the waypoints, since there's no in game map of the prison. As a guide, when you reach the second floor, head through the unlocked door on your left and follow the corridor around.
  • There's a bunch of Walkers trying to get at the guards behind a barricade. If you have something like a molotov, this is a perfect time to use it.
  • The guards are not thankful for you saving them, however, and they will shoot at you as soon as the Walkers are dead.
  • Use a firearm if you have one to kill them, otherwise get into melee as soon as you can to reduce the chance of you dying to their bullets.
  • An alternate route to flank the guards is to go straight forwards from the top of the stairs and enter a side passage with some pipes and a hot steam vent. Close the valve and kill the Infected in the corridor. Then head to the end of the corridor and open the door. Follow it down and you should arrive behind the guards, outflanking them. This will save you being shot as you try and get to them.
  • Either way, kill both the zombies and the guards, then use the waypoints to reach Kevin. There's no other enemies while you do this, so don't worry.
  • Talk to Kevin to continue the quest. He's at the armoury door next to a trolley full of tools and electronics at the end of the hall.
  • He was trying to hack open the armoury door, but it's not working, He needs you to get a keycard from the chief guard to progress.
  • This starts the side quest Locked Armoury. See its dedicated page for walkthrough/details.
  • After opening the armoury, you'll see that it's stripped bare. There's only a few boxes of assorted ammo as well as some police batons, but no guns for Titus. Take the one brown box on a shelf to give to Titus anyway, then return to him via the way you came.
  • Back at the barricade, some of the bodies on the ground will come alive as Walkers, but they're pretty easy to kill.
  • Once you return to the canteen, hand over the box to Titus then speak to him to finish the quest.


  • There's a molotov cocktail on the stairs up to the second floor. This respawns every time you reload the game, so grab it every time for a free molotov.
  • The area in front of the guards' barricade has 7 bodies as well as 3 Walkers. Once the side quest Locked Armoury is begun three previously dead bodies become Walkers. Once the armory has been looted 3 more become Walkers, leaving only one body for future visits and lots of Walkers. However, if you kick the bodies before they turn, they will reappear as Walkers regardless.


  • The title of this quest is a reference to the 1987 war film of the same name. It can also be a reference to a type of bullet encased in a hard metal shell.
