Thanks to traders and the huge range of loot available to collect in Dead Island 2, there are plenty of opportunities to get your hands on some useful gear.

But, before we take a closer look at all of the Dead Island 2 consumables, check out our guides revealing if the game features cross-platform capabilities and the best slayer to use.

Dead Island 2 consumables list

Ranging from food to items that open up locked buildings, there are plenty of consumables you can find. Here's a full list of consumables we've found so far:

  • Med Kit - Earned by completing the Bel-Air Brawl quest.
  • Heavy Rounds - Earned by completing the Cremains of the Dead side quest.
  • Energy drink
  • Protein bar
  • Fuse - Bought at traders.
  • Nailgun Cartridges - Earned by completing the Plumbing the Depths quest.
  • Pistol Rounds - Earned by completing the Saddle up for Santa Monica quest.
  • Rifle Rounds - Earned by completing The Red Mist quest.
  • Shotgun shells - Earned by completing the Cremains of the Day side quest.

The first three relate to regenerating your health as fast as possible. You can choose to purchase med kits or loot them as and when you find them. They restore plenty of health while energy drinks and protein bars only restore a small amount.

Fuses are another important consumable you should familiarise yourself with in Dead Island 2. Throughout Hell-A, you'll find broken fuse boxes requiring a fuse in order to open the gate or garage door. If you're struggling to find them, take a look at our guide on how to get fuses (link).
