Thug Head

A Thug Head travelling

A Thug Head is a type of projectile featured in Dead Island: Retro Revenge. It can only be used when using an up attack on a Thug to kill it. The head acts like any other projectile, but can only go in a straight line down whatever lane the Thug was in. For example, if the Thug was in the bottom lane, the head will only hit zombies or other enemies in that row. It can't be hit into any of the other rows above it.

The head can hit any enemy and will insta-kill them, regardless of what they are. This means they can one hit kill normally multi-hit enemies such as Stompers or other Thugs. Likewise, they can destroy Barriers, something normally impervious to normal attacks.

To get a Thug Head, as previously mentioned, the final hit on the Thug must be an up attack. Doing so will award the 'dismembered' points which is worth +100 points.

Notes[]

  • Since they count as projectiles, they also count towards the achievement/trophy Airborne Appendages.
  • They are the only projectile to only be able to travel in a straight line other than the Stomper Leg. All other projectiles can be hit either up, forwards or down, while heads can only go forwards.
