Dead Island Zombies

The Wrestler is special zombie that makes its debut in Dead Island Riptide. Wrestlers are large, buff zombies that are capable of inflicting a lot of damage and can prove this by starting as a boss battle until they are later seen around the island. The wrestler is a slow but hard hitting zombie that can kill within three hits, but since their attacks are so slow, a backwards dodge will easily stop you from taking any damage.

When the hero is in the old Japanese tunnels during the quest The Tunnels, the corpse of a Wrestler can be found at the end of one corridor, lying in a puddle of chemical waste. A tissue sample is needed for Dr. Kessler's research in the quest History Lesson.

[edit] Strategy

The Wrestlers organs and back are key weak points here. But be careful when attacking though,the player is vulnerable to the Wrestlers arm swing attacks. Fire is not that effective but it will do some damage. Electricity will do a lot of damage especially with electric mods. Toxic mods will also be very effective unless they are already toxicated. Blade weapons can be a very effective depending on what kind it is. Blunt weapons work too.

[edit] Trivia
