The Inferno Crusher is a variant of the Crusher and an Apex Zombie featured in Dead Island 2.


The Inferno Crusher behaves in a similar manner to a normal Crusher. When alerted they will slowly walk towards players and start throwing powerful punches. Furthermore, they are capable of perform an Overhead Smash with their fists to knock players back and inflict heavy damage. Unlike a normal Crusher, however, Inferno Crushers have mutated to not only withstand fire but to also channel high-voltage plasma during combat. This causes them to constantly be covered in flames which will inflict fire damage on contact with players. Should a player receive enough hits from them, they can be lit on fire and have their health rapidly drained.

Inferno Crushers are immune to fire damage, resistant to explosive damage, and weak against bleed damage. Like a regular Crusher, an Inferno Crusher's arms are its weakness. They can easily be severed to inflict massive damage and hinder their attacks. Due to their constant fire damage, melee attacks can prove ineffective unless their flames are extinguished. This can be done temporarily with water jerry cans or the Chem Bomb. It should also be noted that Inferno Crushers will become aggressive after several attacks, increasing the intensity of their attacks as well as their speed. This can be stopped by briefly backing off them and then reattacking after a short time.
