Dead Island 2: How To Get Fuses

So how do you get these fuses? It's pretty simple, but the game doesn't explain how to get them, so it's fully explained why you're here, newbie.

Buying Fuses

The only way to obtain fuses is to buy them from traders, and you can first get them from trader Carlos at Emma Jaunt's house in Bel Air.

Each single fuse costs $1,500. At the beginning of the game it may seem a bit much, but you can only have 3 stacks in your inventory anyway.

As the storyline progresses, you will have the opportunity to buy fuses from almost every trader, marked with a dollar marker on the map. However, there is no guarantee that fuses will always be on offer from a trader. If they are not on the list of items, visit another guy or return to the same trader later in the game.

Using Fuses

Fuses are a type of consumables in the game. This means that once used, they are irretrievably lost, remember that!

As you explore the area, fuse boxes are automatically marked on the map. These are places where you can use the fuses you have. Placing a fuse in the box will unlock a secret room. In it, you will always find a large chest with random weapons. In addition, there is a good chance that the room will include crafting supplies or cash. If you've come across a box called "Zomproof Slayer Hoards," you couldn't have come to a better place. The loot in this chest has really good value.

Of course, it's not that easy! Remember that often these secret rooms are full of traps. Get rid of the dangers first and then enjoy the great loot!
