Murder 'em!
— Jungle Mugger

Jungle Muggers are one of the types of human enemies featured in Dead Island. They're found in the jungle of Banoi. These muggers have been robbing people long before the zombie outbreak and they don't work for Afran. They're technically the fourth human enemies the Heroes encounter.

Their favoured tactic is to ambush passers-by and they take no prisoners. Jungle Muggers behave much like Looters or Punks and are often armed with firearms. They can be found in the jungle foliage, behind wrecked vehicles, and even around ramshackle buildings. They try to get the Heroes caught in a crossfire while shredding them with as many rounds as they can squeeze off they carry Pistols and Rifles.


It is unknown if Jason is a Rebel or Mugger but he is possibly a Punk due to his appearance. He is a cannibal like the Banoi Butcher. He makes his home on the top of his house with a few Walkers at the ground he carries a Machete. He has the same Health as a Thug. He is the strongest human enemy in the game. Jason's is as tall as a Thug.
