Viking of The South

An example of a Legendary Weapon

Legendary Weapons are uniquely named orange weapons in Dead Island, obtained from locked metal chests, random drops from Butchers or Rams, or as quest rewards. They are often very powerful compared to a same-level basic version of the weapon.

Like Exceptional rarity weapons, Legendary Weapons do not spawn with any Name Prefix (e.g. "Slaughtering", "Lethal", "Tiring").

List of Legendary Weapons

Dead Island: Riptide

Some Legendary Weapons return in Dead Island: Riptide, though being distributed in a different fashion and at a different rarity. Only five Legendary Weapons can be found in Dead Island: Riptide:

  • Banisher
  • Bouncer's Pal
  • Master Chef
  • Pick of Destiny
  • Tijuana Machete

These weapons appear in fixed locations within the Flooded Jungle, match the player's level directly, and will re-appear whenever the area is left and revisited. Importantly, these Legendary Weapons are not of normal Legendary rarity, instead appearing as Common rarity weapons with corresponding lower statistics. These "Common Legendaries" will also spawn with one of the Common-rarity prefixes (e.g. "Spiteful", "Flimsy", "Tiring") and the associated penalty to statistics, if applicable.

Outside of the above five weapons, no other Legendary Weapons appear within Dead Island: Riptide. Legendary Weapons are not given as quest rewards and cannot be obtained randomly from any containers or defeated enemies. Despite this, data for all Legendary Weapons from Dead Island is present in the resources of Dead Island: Riptide.
