Vargas is a survivor featured in Dead Island.


He is located at the Antenna Tower in the Jungle, and is a member of Afran's Gang. He is the primary focus of the side quest Death Wish, in which the Hero must track him down and kill him in retribution for his murder of Katie, as requested by Carter, Katie's husband. Vargas is similar to the Punk Leaders from Moresby having the same health and similar weapon to the leaders that use it. His hideout is located not far from the Smugglers' Den where Afran and his Main base for his Organisation is located. There will be regular common Soldiers mainly outside that use Pistols and then the Bodyguards inside the antenna who use Single Shot Rifles.


Vargas is a middle aged man with shaved brown hair and slight stubble. He wears a green t-shirt, brown jeans with a brown belt, white socks, and brown boots. He also wears a black backpack and round glasses.


  • In the objectives menu, Vargas' name is misspelled as "Vargass".
  • Like Zipper, Wolf, and Rage Machine, Vargas is equipped with an Auto Rifle, and has slightly more health than a normal human enemy (about 33% to 50% more health), enough to usually require two headshots to kill.


  • There is a known bug or glitch where if you got to the area where he is before you accept the death wish quest you can kill all his crew then kill him inside if you want. And after you accept the death wish quest and go back to the Antenna, he will be the only one alive.
