Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

Everybody lies

Use a large medkit to heal an injury of 5% or less.  

If you have a large medkit on hand, let a single Walker slap you once, get burned for a short second or drown yourself in a pool for a second - then use it right away. You'll need to have lost less than 1/2 of a health bar for this to work.

Florencio at the Warehouse in Moresby sells these if you can't find one. At the beginning of Chapter 18 you will always get one of these if you can't find it anywhere else though. Load that in a NG+ if necessary.

I have done this over a couple dozen times by letting a zombie bite me until I have 5% or less and tried standing in a car fire all attempts with no success I'm convinced it's glitched

@5 You gotta have a minor wound not heal when you have 5% Health :P Let a Zombie hit you than go to a save house and eat fruit until your life bar is almost full and you have a small amount of damage. Take the medkit and boom. Achievement.

in the jungle u ll obtain (and u can buy) a large medkit. U can fall from a high edge and wait until the last square marks the half. (well the 5% deppends how long is your healthbar)

An easy way to obtain this achievement is in the sewers(chapters 7&8). drown yourself until near death and quickly heal yourself (have large medkit equipped). Large
medkits can be bought around the city($500)

@ 15 double press B to use medkits

i found the best way to do this is to be using Sam B and have his regeneration
skill. Just take some damage, and your health bar slowly refills, just use the large medkit when the last block is half full.

Easiest to take some damage and then heal all the way till you're still missing one health square by using snacks and energy drinks then use a fruit because it will only heal half a square. Now with only half a square of health missing use the medkit and you should have it.

A good spot is the Police Station when there is electricity on the ground. Just barely touch it then back off and heal with large medkit.

You just have to get hit, and take an Energy drink untill you get a 5% score, than use a large medkit (500$ per BTW)
It may take a while, but eventualy you get it.

Easier if you wait until later in the game when you have a longer health bar. Just hold onto a LARGE med kit and use it when you see just a small fraction of one bubble gone.

@ 6 & @18

I tried both of your ideas like you stated here on this page and neither of them worked. I tried several times to be exact.

@22, I agree it's gonna take awhile. I tried their methods like 5 times each and still no achievement.

If your in the Jungle area you can get large medkits from a camping survivor behind a wired fence named, Sebastian.

He is located on the top road on the map close to the exit/entrance on the top left corner of the map.

Just follow the top road across the jungle and you will see his little camping area.

Along further down the path you'll come across armed people, zombies, Jason Vorhees rip off enemy and a deep little pool near a house.

Those are the best places to land the achievement near the shop.
