— In-game Description

Special Sauce is a 'rare' rarity weapon perk featured in Dead Island 2. The perk increases damage dealt against Apex varients by 25% (multiplicative) and reduces both physical and elemental damage received from Apex variants by 40% (multiplicative). It is part of the Haus DLC.


The Special Sauce blueprint is awarded for completing the quest The Path of the Unworthy, dropping from the chest in the attic of the house blocked off by Dark Brains inside the Cul-De-Sac.
