Dead Island Riptides weapons, guns and combat are a noticeable improvement from the 2011 title. While there is still focus on melee you’re given a ton more ammo this time around and when fighting hordes gun turrets play a significant role. A particularly nice touch to Dead Island Riptide’s weapons is the nail gun, which allows you to pick nails out of enemies to reuse. Explosives and sonic weapons add a lot of fun too.
Melee combat is very much the life and blood of Dead Island Riptide, with Australian John Morgan pounding the heck out of zombies with his fists.
