Skull Location Thread

Ok ok ok, I know there's a thread about the skulls already. Props to Bringin SXC bak for giving us his info. But I figured I'd make a thread that is more organized so we can map these things out. Feel free to post what you find and all accurate and relevant information will be added to benefit us all. Thanks in advance for the help, lets find these fuckers.

So far we seem to "know" of 5 Skulls:

~ Orange
~ Blue
~ Brown
~ Purple
~ Green


It also seems that these skulls may not always spawn in the same spots, but I have a hunch that there's a set hand-full of spot that certain skulls will spawn.

We know the skulls reward us with mods.

We know that once a skull is found, each one has a certain location that the skull must be "placed."

Note: The skulls do NOT show up in your inventory, so don't tweek if you pick it up and don't see it on your list. This is not a glitch.

So here we go...


The Orange Skull

Location(s)
~ In Act II, after you travel through the Sewers and first reach the Supermarket. At the VERY FIRST stair case that you come across that you have to go up, go behind it and you will find a metal chest and some shopping carts. Inside one of the shopping carts will be the Orange Skull.

~ Others have said they found this skull somewhere in the Sewers before its drop point. When I get an exact Location I will add it.

Drop Point

In the Sewer shortly before you get to the Supermarket you ill be in a long room will a centralized trench full of toxic waste. I've seen there be a Floater in the area 2 out of the 3 times Ive been through it. Also in the middle of the room there is a refrigerator sticking out of the waste near the edge that has Energy Drinks in it. on the left side of this room you will find a ladder. At the top of the ladder you will be on a small platform with a single walker on the ground sitting against the wall, and a door to your right. Go in the door and in the left corner of the room behind some junk and boxes is a pile of White Skulls with an arrow point down to the top of them. You will be prompted to place the skull on top of the pile. And POOF! This video will help (Thank you XxSKETCHxX313)


Reward: developers no. 1 craft


The Blue Skull


Location(s)
~ So far I've only heard of this skull being in this set location. In Act II in the City there is a Side Quest called "Uninvited Guests" where you have to kill the Zombies in this girl Alicia's apartment. Once you get through the apartment and get upstairs theres a room that I guess is a kitchen, it has a stove in it with a burner on, across the hall is another room, when you enter the doorway to the left is a cabinet-type thing with a glass door on it. Inside sitting on a shelf is the Blue Skull. You have to smash the glass before you can pick it up.

IMPORTANT NOTE: The drop point for the Purple Skull is in Alicia's kitchen in this apartment, I haven't tested it yet, but I've been told that once you exit this apartment you can't get back in. So if you're planning on getting the Purple Skull, WAIT TO GO GET THE BLUE ONE!

Posted by "Dayam": Also I can confirm that you can reenter Alicia's Apartment AS LONG AS YOU DON'T TALK TO HER. I found the drop off for the purple skull, left the building and got the skull and returned. As long as the quest is active I believe you can go back into the building.

Look under the Purple Skull for a vid that shows the drop location for Purple and the pick up location for Blue.

Drop Point

Back at the Resort (Yes, Act I, you can fast travel back there at any fast travel location, I recommend the Life Gaurd tower.) In the South East corner of the map there is a bunker that if crowded by a hand full of zombies, and a guy trapped by them. Follow the beach, its hard to miss, you'll know it when you see it. Kill the zombies (Obviously) and free him, he will lead you inside and in the main room there's a manhole cover on the ground, which serves as a portal to another bunker on the other side of the map. Once you go through it you will be in a room with two doors and a ladder. One door has boxes in front of it, ignore this door. In the other corner of the room on the other side of a pile of junk there is another door. You need to go up the ladder and pick up one of the red gas tanks up there and drop it down, place it in front of the door and shoot it to blow up the door. In side the room there will be a square indentation on the wall will a skull to the right of it, and an empty space for a skull to the left of it, place the Blue Skull and POOF! Teddy Bears for everyone. This video will help.


Reward: developers no. 3 craft


The Brown Skull

Location(s)
~ Back at the Act I Resort area. Its located in the bunker on the downstairs floor by the lighthouse. (its the first bunker you get into through story progression) This is kind of tough for me to explain because I haven't physically gone and gotten this one yet, but I found this video on youtube that shows where it is.


Drop Point
You have to climb therock mountain on the east coast of the island and its at the very top. Theres a couple skulls sitting on the rocks and you place it on top. This video shows you perfectly how to get there.


Reward: developer 666 craft


The Purple Skull


Location(s)
~ In the sewers of Act II again. Just enter the sewers in front of the church and follow the path. This video makes it pretty easy to find:


Drop Point
As I previously stated at the Blue Skull, the Drop Point for this one is in Alicia's bedroom in her apartment, right across the hall from where you find the Blue Skull. This video will help, it also shows where you can pick up the blue skull.


Reward: developer no. 4 craft "just mindblowinf craft by Simon!"


The Green Skull

Location
FlyBoy120586
Go to the southwest gas station on the island. Head towards the right to the mountains. The mountain near the water you can climb around. sitting in a tool box.

Drop Point
Go to the supermarket. Head towards the little eating area. There should be an Aisle of teddy bears with a green floor and a flashlight shining on the teady bear. Haven't tried it yet, though.

Courtesy of FlyBoy120586 via GameFaqs forum poster Deatharises77.

Reward: developers no. 2 craft



Thats pretty much all I have so far. Waiting on news for new skulls, maybe Red and Green? If anyone has additional info please post it. Thanks a lot! Hope this helped!

Great Guide! Can't wait to find them all.

Anyway just a few things I noticed.

The Purple skull drop off location is in the kitchen lol, not bedroom. Be kinda weird having a stove in the bedroom.

Also I can confirm that you can reenter Alicia's Apartment AS LONG AS YOU DON'T TALK TO HER. I found the drop off for the purple skull, left the building and got the skull and returned. As long as the quest is active I believe you can go back into the building.

You get special modifications from them when you deliver them to their locations.

They require 5x Diamonds + 10000$ to create. So save those diamonds.

Yes, with the item glitch its quite easy. Eith either diamonds or Champagne, if you or your buddy has some of either have them come in, drop them on the ground, then dashboard, and rejoin. Rinse and repeat. Diamonds for EVERYONNNNNE! Without having to talk to that annoying drunk slut.

*Spoilers*

The Developer 666 craft is the by far the best one though. I have 2 of the others (Purple and Blue) and although they're unbelievable weapons (one has a 100% chance of critical and the other has a 75% chance) they don't make the game as easy as 666 does. It's basically an instant shock-knockdown attack that requires the use of all your stamina. Which means whenever you run into a special zombie you can instantly knock him down and curb stomp him for an instant kill. Really helps against high-level Rams, Thugs, and Butchers.

I think there is a definite possibility that there are 2 skulls missing. Because with the 4 that we've found, the developer's craft goes 1, 3, 4, and 666. With 666 just being a clever way of doing the 6th developer mod that fits in with the theme of the game. So there's a possibility we're still missing skulls 2 and 5.

Right now I am in the Jungle right before the Prison. Fast travel to the Church in the city and run to the nearest sewer.
Try to remember how to get to the city hall and then to the Supermarket from there.
Basically:
Church>Sewer>City Hall>Sewer>Supermarket

Video I recorded:

Sorry for terrible quality but I don't have a capture card

First off thanks for this thread. I already have the orange and brown skulls done. I'm trying to do the others but I can't figure out from these guides which sewer entrances I need to use to get where I need to go. Instead of saying "the closest sewer to the church" (theres a few close to it and none look like the ones in the vids, to me anyway), would it be possible for someone to post a screenshot of the map with said sewer entrances highlighted? It would make things a lot easier.

Have you done the missions where you go thru the sewer yet? Because you literally have to pass right thru the area more than once just with natural story progression.

Yeah, I've already beat the game once. I just don't remember which sewer leads to where (theres like 20 of them on that city map). A screen shot of the map with a "this sewer leads to city hall" or "this one leads to the blue skull" marking is all I need. All these vids start already in the sewers and don't tell you how to get there. I found the orange and brown ones on my own during my playthrough but missed the others, I'd like to just go back and get them without having to playthrough the entire story again.
