Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements


Heal yourself with a medkit 100 times.  

Medkits will be scarce throughout the entirety of the game. The best option for this is to use whatever cash you have after completing the game to buy the remainder of what you need and use them all in a row while standing in some fire. You can start a new game and grab the one in the bathroom of the first room in the Prologue, use it and reload checkpoint to farm this. You can also load Chapter 18 in a NG+ as well, there will be a handful lying there in the beginning.

just FYI: Gesundheit is German and means "health" ;)

Nice try, dude. The americans use the german word, too. Also in this context it means "Bless you!" ;)

Well, the point is that since it used like "Bless you," Americans think that that is what Gesundheit means, when it actually does mean "health", which makes more sense for this achievement.

Yes, correct #1, but I believe the reason they titled it as that is because it is colloquially used as we say bless you after sneezing.

Gesundheit means "good health" Probably a reference that you'll be healing yourself with the med kits.

Not that it matter, but would saying Gesundheit in a non-German sense, as others have said as a meaning of "bless you" after sneezing, to further it by saying to bless one with "good health" as a sneeze is seen as a precursor to getting a cold or flu

All of you are stupid. I speak German. And Gesundheit means "Health". We say "Health" instead of "God Bless you". In the Middle Ages, it was "God Bless you with Health." (Because coughing and sneezing was seen as expelling spirits out of the body). Afterwards, The English kept "God Bless you", which is shortened today quite often to "Bless you". The Germanic languages kept "Health". Gesundheit, in the context of someone sneezing, still means Health.

instead of crying over what "Gesundheit" means id like to post on how to get the achievement. seeing how med kits are perty rare and money is not, the best way i found to get this is to just buy a bunch of med kits from a vendor and every time u lose some health just press "B" and in a few hours you should pop the achievement no prob.

@9 Hooray, spot on!

An easy way to do this is go to the lifeguard station and buy a bunch of med kits. Exit the building, and go through the gate(not the one you drive through). Turn left and go down the stairs to the first landing(I think there was a piece of metal leaning on the railing or something. Just jump over the piece of metal to the ground below. Sometimes I wouldn't get hurt, and other times I would almost die, it was kind of random. But keep using med kits, and then go buy more and do it again. You should have the achievement in 20 minutes.

@9 - Isn't that what I said?

If anyone else wants to save money on this, instead of buying, maybe someone might be able to confirm this, also a good way to get lots of money. Fast travel between the Church, Warehouse and Square. The fridge in the Square can respawn with Champagne to get diamonds, also possible to get deodorant and detergent. The warehouse will respawn four weapons which can be sold for money, and the church in the room with the nun, a med pack has been respawning for me in the cupboard.

It's not the case with every fast travel trip as it seems to randomly differ between a few items. But it is possible, for me anyway, to get several medium med packs

Upgrade the merchant survival skill to 30% discount, collect money and buy medium medkits from traders.

just buy 100 med kits then throw a molotov cocktail stand in it and keep pressing b to use med kit, when molotov runs out throw another one and repeat.

at the end of Act 1 for the quest only the strong" after the mechanic has done the work grab the health kit off the wall and reload. you can continue to do this. and jump off the roof of the garage to loose health.

This should pop without any effort if you use med packs instead of the sodas lying around. It was a hard habit to break for me since the stuff was everywhere.

Not fully difficult to get this achievement. If you have already beat this game, start a new character on the very last chapter (18 if im thinking right). Go into the room grab all the medkits run out where the human gunners are at let them shoot you and keep healing until you run out of medkits. Then re-load this. Repeat until you finish the achievement then boom there ya go.

This achievement is easy but takes about 20 minutes to get load up chapter 18 and go into the room to your left and through the other door and there is 4-5 medkits there go out the the police offices and let them shoot you and use your kits easy as that check YouTube out! :)

@22 - Buy med kits and heal yourself. Don't eat or drink to gain health.
