Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

Tis but a flesh wound!

Sever 100 limbs.  

Your best chance to sever a limb comes from edged weapons, or modified weapons with saw blades attached, such as the sickle from an early quest reward or the Ripper pre-order incentive from Gamestop. Aim for the shoulders in a downward strike for arms or a horizontal strike just above the knees for legs.

Dismembering existed long before Dead Space came around. =/

Apart from the epic fail from IGun BunnyI, there's a little misquote here.
First he says "tis but a scratch", then it comes "just a flesh wound".
So the exact achievement quote ain't in the movie. Maybe copyright stuff?
But that's the ultra awesome inspiration, no doubt.

yes, this is a Monty Python reference, from the black knight, as long as the zombies don't try to chew on my ankles when I am done it should be alright

What does sever means ? Is that like cutting of limbs ?

Comment #13 by Nevander

@12 Yes, sever means to dismember a limb. I would imagine this acheivement should come rather quick, that is if you can dismember multiple limbs off the same dead zombie.

This will be easy, as I got the "Sever 2,500 Limbs" achievement in Dead Space 2 quite easily...

Little info:

It only counts when the zombie is "alive" and you cut of a rm or something else.
If he is "dead" and you cut off all limbs DOES NOT COUNT!

Comment #31 by NewSlang7

This is very easy to do with a larger blade like a sickle, cleaver, or machete. If you fully upgrade them you can slice off heads and arms in one go. Very fun haha.

I found dismembering zombies not too difficult with the right weapons, a cleaver or machete is the best way to go IMO

There should also be a reference achievement to Shaun of the Dead called, "Ahh, he's got an arm off" cut off 100 zombie arms lol

Wow, so many faggots arguing over the reference instead of the achievement itself.

Anyway, just to specify: severing only counts if the target is still alive (err, unalive?) before death. You can sever up to two arms before the zombie dies, as well as the head/one leg, so aiming for the arms with a sharp weapon will speed up the progress twofold instead of decapitation. Machete or a cleaver would be god tier for this.

Got this today - very enjoyable achievement. I used a Machete for the most part and just looked out for when the cross-hair turned red while hover over the zombie's arms and legs.

For whatever reason, I've found that most types of scythes seem to have a higher chance of severing limbs.

I still find it funny that you cannot sever there legs.
