Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

People Person

Play with 10 different co-op partners for at least 15 minutes each.  

This does not have to be done on the same character or during the same playthrough. You will generally find new games popping up all the time, so start one yourself and then just latch onto someone for fifteen minutes. Once your achievement tracker pops up, repeat the process with nine more people. To make it go a little faster, try to find open games with 2-3 people at a time.

Oh c'mon. Nobody would do this unintentionally. What a waste of an achievement. Lots of other ones are cool and creative.

does this apply for 3 partners. so 3 groups of 3 and a single partner = 60minutes

Hmm... this one could be tough... only like, 4 or so of my friends are picking this game up. Hopefully there is a co-op search or something of that sort.
This achievement is pretty weird though.

Wouldn't it make more sense to make it something like spend 3 hours with A SINGLE co op partner? This is like the game saying don't play longer than 15 mins with a partner. Kinda ruins the co op idea if you drop the person after 15 mins

@5 There is a counter. in the 19 min gameplay demo u see multiple pop up for diffrent things. Doesnt sound hard to get. just join a random game every time u play. Besides playin with new people gets u new friends (and enemies).

Is playing Co-op with other people that much of a problem for you guys? You guys can't be THAT anti-social right? I know I'm on a site dedicated to gaming but really guys?

If you need to boost for this achievement, something is horribly wrong. I've played with randoms in Borderlands and L4D and such and it's not a problem. Simply play with 4 different people and it's one step closer. Besides, 15 minutes is an average game in almost any other games multiplayer.

After all, who wants to engage with people when they play multiplayer these days anyway right?

Comment #11 by Hooded xREAPERx
Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 01:01:37 PM

I meant "play with 3 different people in a full game and it's one step closer.". I'd really like an easy edit feature feature for posts for x360a :X

Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 03:13:48 PM

Sucky Achivement, Most people who are in open lobbys dont talk or are constantly asking questions. Prefer to just play with my Friends who have the game, Isn't that the idea of co-op ? playing with friends

Comment #14 by gmcb007
Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 03:13:56 PM

Not at all, Me and my mates plan to play through it on co-op anyways, it's just that it's a bit annoying that I have to find another 8 random players in co-op as well. I don't mind co-op achievements, just achievements that require you to do things with a set number of players. E.G: Homefront had one that required you to finish a multiplayer game in a 16 player part team. They're just annoying to have to find a boosting partners several times over.

Comment #15 by MediumMelanin
Friday, July 29, 2011 @ 07:47:31 PM

So people will just lobby hop every 15 minutes to get this achievement. What a fail!

Comment #16 by Hooded xREAPERx
Saturday, July 30, 2011 @ 01:57:19 AM


That's understandable. Getting 16 people is pretty annoying but this one is pretty simple in comparison. Hell, you could probably get the achievement in one sitting if you stay playing long enough and people drop-in and drop-out enough times. You would only have to join 10 lobbies AT THE MOST if someone wanted to get it.

I'll have no problem getting this at all though since this one will most likely come naturally like most/all of my achievos.

Comment #22 by Nevander

This one wins worst achievement in the game. I also hate achievements (and games for that matter) that require a certain number of players. I have a feeling doing this legit will be a little challenging, that is if the game is laggy or bad online, if people quit early before the 15 minutes is up, if the game doesn't save the person if they quit, and many other possible reasons.

Anyway you look at it, this one sucks.

Any of you guys feel free to add me, I will want this one ASAP before the game's online dies out and no randoms are on it.

i as well intend to play with one of my friends as much as possible. it kinda takes away from that if i need to find 9 other random ppl to play with. So add me if you want and we can get this together, the sooner its done with the better.

Quite alot of crying going on for this achievement. If this was borderlands and you made your game online public you would have this cheevo in no time. Your saying add me as friend, when realistically people dropping in and out will stay for 15 mins so that not only will you get a point towards this, but so will they, its mutual, and it helps people meet each other. I know no one who is getting this, maybe someone will stop by who isn't 12 and we can do the other co-op stuff. I think this cheevo is cake. Something tells me this won't be the worse one to get.

Saturday, September 03, 2011 @ 12:08:42 PM

Although this achievement shouldn't be hard at all (between here and TA, I am sure plenty of people will boost to this) it is a lame achievement none the less.

Imagine trying to actually play the game, only to have partners constantly bail on you to work towards that achievement. I see some frustrating sessions in the future.

Hopefully I can convince some of my friends to pick this up, if not, hopefully some of you will prove to be some fun and friendly zombie hunters !

Comment #33 by Killbomb
Saturday, September 03, 2011 @ 05:46:03 PM

I hate achievements that force co-op. I don't care for it at all so I probably won't be getting all the achievements in this one.

Comment #34 by BIG L RETURNS
Tuesday, September 06, 2011 @ 03:07:29 AM

eh. not much boosting needed for this one. just simply find a game to join and play for 15 minutes and then leave. Do it 10 different times. Quite easy especially if you at least enjoy playing the game.

I don't see why so many people have issues with playing with different people to get an achievement. I understand it to be annoying if someone kills you on purpose or is just being a douche bag, but, just leave the game?

I have 5 to go on this one. Any takers?

Why the heck are people whining about this achievement? This is like the easiest fucking one on the list. Just play a lot of cooperative, and then you get the achievement. If you think this is hard, then you got a long road ahead of 100 percenting this game.
