Six Feet Under is a medium difficulty side quest given to the Hero by Owain in Dead Island.


The Hero must provide Owain with a spade, so he can bury the bodies of the deceased.


  • This is a very easy quest to complete.
  • Talk to Owain to start the quest.
  • He needs a spade to start burying the dead bodies near the Church.
  • Find a spade for him. If your weapon inventory is full, place a weapon in Jin's storage temporarily so you can pick up a spade when you find one.
  • For spade locations, see below.
  • Once you have one in your inventory, travel back to the Church to talk to Owain and finish the quest.

Spade locations

See the Gallery below for more details.


A spade is found outside of the Water Sports Rental Kiosk. This is the building on the beach in the Golden Beach area that gets opened up after the Hero rescues Haris who is trapped under a car. The kiosk is situated between a yellow and blue awning and has a workbench inside.

A spade can also be found inside the fence in front of the Old Marina Workshop where the Hero takes the armored truck to be modified during Act I before leaving to Moresby (see the Misery Wagon quest article for more details). Standing in the workshop looking out, it is on the right by a barrel. You can grab this and give it to Jin before leaving.


Two spades can be found in front the River Village safe house, the hut where Jin leads the Hero when first entering the Jungle during Act III; it's convenient as it's very close to a fast travel portal.

Another spade can be found in the Overpass Camp, to the right of the small staircase in front of Pono.


  • Despite him asking for either a shovel or a spade, the quest description only specifies spade, and so he will only accept spades. He won't accept rusty ones either, nor will he accept broken spades.
  • This is one of the last quests given in Moresby. It only becomes available after completing the quest Bury The Dead.
  • After the quest is complete there will be a large grave in the cemetery with a shovel (not a spade) on it. A hand with a set of Brass Knuckles sticks out of the mound. If taken, both will respawn just like other items found lying around in the game world.


  • Six Feet Under is an expression often used to describe a person being buried. It comes from the act of digging a grave that's six feet deep in the ground, hence making the coffin (and person) six feet under the ground.
