Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

Ah! Spoiled meat!

Kill a Butcher using an axe.  

The Butcher enemy isn't all that difficult. Xian Mei will likely have the easiest go of this with some upgraded edged weapons and skills.

Sounds like a reference to the first Diablo, when you fight the Butcher. He'd usually say, "Ah! Fresh Meat!" Kinda funny, though.

Pretty simple. First time you meet a Butcher is in the Jungle missions, I believe when yo uare escorting Ope (could be wrong). Just make sure you have an axe. Remember to kick the Butcher when he charges to stun him.

#6 Well it was originally in dead rising, then left 4 dead, so it would be the 3rd in Dead Island

Haven't made it to the butcher yet but I found an Axe. In the Church area after chapter 1 there is a place called Simons hub. You will see zombies attacking the shed. Inside there is a man who gives a side mission for an Axe

#5 there is an achievement like that in prototype, so dead island is actually the fourth game to have that. I culd be wrong tho, mite be another game with that achievement.

@5: No. God no. I hate those bloody achievements simply because it rewards you for unnecessary grinding....these achievements are fine.

@1: This is totally a Diablo reference. I didn't catch it at first, but it totally makes sense.

OT: Is Simon's hub different from the warehouse where Simon is? How close to the church are we talking?

Bah...I have only found 1 axe in the game. It dropped off a zombie at the garage that Jin's dad owns on the resort island. I've been holding on to it waiting to get to a butcher and it's getting less and less powerful.

For those struggling to locate a Butcher when you get to River village go to the back gate and jump in the car and drive until you are just to the right of a group of nine buildings, there is a bunker to the right of these buildings with a lone butcher in enter and destroy his ass with the axe.

There are also many fire axes in Act IV if you're having trouble finding one.

All I kno is we have all waisted our time with this game I have had to start over 5 times! There is a save freeze glitch. My advice stop and return the game now! Save the headach!

If you fast travel to the laboratory compound, the second group of buildings with the work bench, the moving gate and the lone scientist with the kitana reward, there's always a butcher in that little common area. My advice: knock his health down with something faster, then axe him. Two-handed weapons are slow to swing and the butcher moves pretty quick.

Besides this achievement, what's the best (quickest) way to kill a Butcher?

I was playing a co-op game. I had my trusty phoenix splitting axe, the butcher was just standing there. It saw my partner, screamed then went Jason up his backside. I yelled, "This is Sparta!!" and hacked the butcher into tiny zombifying dog treats. Achievement Unlocked.

@ 9 & 20

Dead Nation has with a crazy number of zombie kills in it. I think it's around that 56k number.

I missed this damn one first time round - only killed 6 Butchers so far in a complete play-through, so doing a New Game+ on it, rushing through the story to get to Act 3 just to get this one stupid cheevie

I really should have read the cheevie list before I went through the game, plus using stupidly powered weapons so was just wading through the zombies without thinking about what I was fighting

I got a shotgun, filled it with the max amount of ammo. Found the butcher below the lab and just kept shooting him from a distance to lower his health until eventually he got stunned by the shock mod, ran in hit him once with an axe and the achievement popped for me :)

Can you modify the axe? Like use the High Voltage mod on it for example?

Comment #40 by Spiderrichard
Wednesday, February 26, 2014 @ 02:29:04 PM

Not sure if you can do this with modified axes best not to use them just to be safe. Make sure to turn on enemy health so you can see how much health he has remaining. This way you can weaken him with a gun from some where safe then jump down and axe his face off or just use your preferred weapon then switch.

This can be done with any weapon with the word "axe" in the title. It also can be done with a modified weapon, so long as it's an axe.
The best place to do it is in the jungle bunker either during or after the quest for nikolai. There is a single butcher inside the bunker, and it stands with its back to you as you enter. If your quick and aim for the head, you may be able to kill it in a single hit.

#34, you have to be holding the axe. Don't throw it. It's a melee achievement.
