Dead Island 2 Workbench Guide

From the creators of the original Dead Island series, Dead Island 2 has recently been launched for a number of platforms that include the PlayStation 5, the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Xbox Series X/S, and finally, Microsoft Windows. The plot of the game revolves around you surviving the Zombie virus outbreak in the cities of San Francisco as well as Los Angeles, and boy oh boy, aren’t the graphics epic!

Getting to the point, if you have been playing Dead Island 2 for a while, you’ll know that before you head out for any mission, you need to use the workbench, and knowing how to use it is very essential. Hence, in this article by Frontech, we’ll be guiding you on your way around the workbench. Here it is:

Dead Island 2 Workbench Guide

The workbench is mainly used in the game to repair the guns that you’ll end up damaging as you use them; however, you could also make certain modifications to your weapon or craft some other items using the workbench. For instance, walk up to a workbench and press the square button on your controller if you’re playing the game on your PlayStation console. If you’re playing on your PC, interact would be the key “F,” and if you’re on Xbox, press the “X” button to open up the workbench menu.

Once that’s done, two tabs will open up, namely, Fabricate and Weapons. Here’s a brief about them and what they’re used for.

  • Weapons tab: You’ll find all of your weapons accessible here, at one place. This option on the workbench offers the following to your weapons:
    • Repair – By using this, you’ll be able to restore your weapon’s health that’ll be lost as you use it. 
    • Match level – This’ll increase your weapon’s durability, damage and finally it’s level, which’ll match yours. 
    • Upgrade – This lets you add modifications to your weapon.
    • Scrap – This option would allow you to scrap any weapon that you’d no longer like to use to get the parts that you applied to it back, which would also in turn, free up space.
  • Fabricate: In your journey through the game’s storyline, you will end up collecting a bunch of blueprints for certain items. These items might include gun ammunition or medkits. With the fabricate option, you’ll be able to craft those items, and further, you’ll only be needing the raw materials for those items rather than money.

NOTE: As you upgrade your weapon each time, it won’t be free. It’ll end up costing you some money in exchange for recovering the lost health points on the weapon. 

That’s everything there is to know about the Workbench in Dead Island 2.
