Mushrooms are a quest item featured in Dead Island: Riptide. They are herbal mushrooms that can be used in various medical recipes, according to Dr. Jane Hanson. She tasks the Heroes with going to the Lonely Cave and picking these mushrooms for her in the side quest Alternative Medicine, due to her medical supplies being washed away in the monsoon. The cave is filled with Zombies which the Heroes need to kill in order to safely pick the mushrooms, however after doing so, they return to Dr. Jane and hand them over so she can make some natural medicine for the group.
