Slaying zombies

Arguably the most obvious method to earn XP in Dead Island 2 is simply by killing zombies. There's no trickery involved. Slaying the undead yields small amounts of XP but considering they're everywhere it's an ideal tactic to work through the levels quickly.

With the game featuring a huge range of different zombie types, some may offer more XP than others so bear that in mind before running away and finding cover.

Alongside the different variations of zombies, eliminating a deadly zombie guarantees plenty of XP too. Marked with a skull and crossbones instead of a level, this category of undead can kill you with a single swipe so make sure you're well-equipped before committing to the fight.

Completing quests

Another handy tip that's perfect for earning large amounts of XP in a quick hit is by completing a quest. Main quests often include thousands of XP as a reward while some of the side missions distribute slightly less. It's certainly quicker than tackling large groups of Walkers with a wooden plank.
