"Kwon With the Wind" is the eighth story quest featured in Dead Island 2.


Rescuing Jessie Kwon at the local construction site, the Slayer discovered Michael had fled to Monarch Studios. The Slayer travelled to the studio lot to find him, battling through a dead zone to reach the movie lot.


The Slayer travelled to the construction site atop the hill to find Jessie Kwon. Kwon was found inside the house, who accidentally trapped herself in the house after she lured zombies to the site with loud music. After shutting off the music and rescuing her, the Slayer discovered that while Kwon distracted the zombies with the music, Anders left to Monarch Studios, a movie lot, to acquire an important item.

With this discovery, the Slayer decided to follow Anders to Monarch Studios, battling through a dead zone (a zone uncontrolled by the military) to reach the lot.
