Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

Right 4 Life

Complete act I with 4 different characters.  

For this you will need to complete the first act of the game with each character: Logan, Sam B, Purna and Xian Mei. This can be done in any order, and only the main story quests need to be completed.

Note: The achievement tracker in-game appears to be broken, as it will sometimes not remove anyone's name even though you've finished the act with them, or remove the wrong person's name. The achievement still works though. If you don't get credit for completing the Act with someone, start a new file with them at Chapter 4 (this can only be done if you've completed the chapter previously) and then finish it again.

This CAN NOT be unlocked by joining someone else's co-op game as they finish Chapter 4. You do need to complete the entire act's main story quests, not just "finish" the act. Just run from location to location doing what you need and it will go rather quickly though. Avoid any fights that aren't required to progress.

I love how everyone thinks this is a good title just because it references another game. Right 4 Life? That doesn't imply completing Act I with all characters. That implies anti-abortion activists. (Unless you want to connect THAT to zombies with a story about stem cell research... I smell conspiracy! Nevermind, it's a good title now.)

I like achievements like this, sort of like doing all the origin stories in DA: Origins. Let's you get a feel for all the character types.

I like how it says "with 4 different characters" instead of "with each character" or "all characters" when there is only 4 characters in the game.

can you have multiple games at a time? i don't want to mess up everything i've all ready accumulated.

Comment #12 by NewSlang7
Wednesday, September 07, 2011 @ 10:49:41 AM

So wait, when it says 4 different characters, does it mean co-op with all 4 like Originality but for all of Act 1? Or does it mean play through Act 1 as all 4 characters, therefor playing Act 1 4 different times? Anyone have clarification?

Comment #13 by i got squeezed
Wednesday, September 07, 2011 @ 10:23:17 PM

@ 12 I was wondering the same thing. I'm assuming you have to play with all 4 different characters in Act 1 by yourself

Comment #14 by kentb79
Thursday, September 08, 2011 @ 01:19:14 PM

If you go to the extras/achievements list, it lists the 4 characters by name and tells you which ones you still have to beat act 1 with. You have to beat it 4 seperate times, once each with each character.

OK, game's been out for 4 days now... this doesn't seem like an easy achievement at all until you have finished your initial run through based on the jacked up save system. Has anyone done this acheevo yet? It just seems like if you are on a playthru, and not trying to speed run it, you would overwrite your other character's save each time you start a new game.

Unless of course you did this one first before you got invested into the game...

Friday, September 09, 2011 @ 06:08:01 PM

You can start a new game for each character.
I just did a speed run with Sam B, ended up at lvl 11 and took me 2 and a half hours.
So its not too bad. Ill be trying the other characters later.
I htink most people wanna focus on their main guy to get it all done. Sucks going back to the beginning.

it a little glitchy i completed act 1 with Sam B
and it gave me credit for completeing it with Purna

Comment #18 by perfecktev7
Saturday, September 10, 2011 @ 03:16:18 PM

I got credit for Sam B on my first single player playthrough. Then when I started playing co-op with other characters I was not getting credit for completing the act. After playing through chapter 4 multiple times, I noticed that Purna unlocked Logan, Xian, then herself and the achievement popped. I guess it is a matter of trial and error.

You can have multiple saves. However my game seemed to have glitched. I
completed act 1 with Purna yet it done Sam B for me :s

Comment #21 by Eggsngaming
Monday, September 12, 2011 @ 01:06:59 PM

I completed Act I as Xian, Sam B, Purna and Logan, in that order. No achievement.
In the game's achievement menu, it says I still have to do it as Xian and Sam B, even though I did it with them first. So I honestly don't know how to get this.

@26 same here, I did it with logan the first time. then went back with Xian and nothing. Im trying it with Sam B now and will see if it tracks that one. Between this and the There and back achievement this game is starting to be a real headache to get the 1000.

Comment #30 by i got squeezed
Thursday, September 15, 2011 @ 11:26:44 PM

I'm working on Sam B and almost done, it took off Purna since shes my main character (45) and I hope the game takes him off so I know its working. Just hope it unlocks after I complete Act 1 with the final person.

Friday, September 16, 2011 @ 10:47:07 AM

...this may seem like a tard question (but this game can be a little glitchy so might as well ask it)

To people that have this achievement did you run through the prologue again with each character or skip it and just go straight to act 1? Just wondering if that might make a difference or not...

Comment #32 by almany
Friday, September 16, 2011 @ 11:45:22 PM

If game messes up make a new character and start them on chapter 4 and finish till act 2 and it will mark it for you.

So how does this achievement work? Do you have to do the PROLOGUE with each character first to get it? Please reply :D

Comment #37 by Parazitas1982
Saturday, September 17, 2011 @ 03:48:17 PM

No need to play prologue again. Pick a dude and it will pop up a question do you want play a prologue yes no. Press no and play. Act 1 takes like 2 h 30 min to play only main quest. So with all dudes it will take around 8 h.

Saturday, September 17, 2011 @ 07:05:30 PM

The achievement is glitchy if you don't want it to glitch start by reading this:
1.Once you picked the character you wish to finish the campaign with, don't jump in multiplayer but start solo and skip the prologue, now you're good to go play multiplayer.

2.If the game says: Quest will not be save in solo campaign (happened to me, I did the whole chapter and got no achievement)well quit multiplayer and load you solo game before going any further you'll just waste your time.

3.Don't start a new game + except if your done with every other achievement otherwise you will be level 1 with the character and you will have to do every quest again the gain access to other places than the island.

Hope this helps!

Did anyone else notice that Purna looks white in the achievement tile?

Comment #41 by i got squeezed
Sunday, September 18, 2011 @ 05:32:15 PM

Yeah in the manual she looks hotter and beter than in the actual game where she's darker and weird looking.

This was my last achievement I needed and it feels good having another 1000G game.

Ok, so last night a friend and I went through act I (me on lvl 47 Xian and him on lvl 1 sam b) We started by playing through his fresh game, me just running through quests as quick as could be until we got to ashes to ashes which bugged where we couldn't turn the gas can into steve. My save was directly after that point so I dropped into my game and he joined me, then I dropped, he stayed, and I rejoined him making the zombies lvl 3 again. We played through the rest of the act together, at the end of the act I got credit for the run through and he did not.


1. You can do this in multiplayer,
2. You must actively complete every storyline quest in the act to get credit
3. If you are being run through by a high level friend, only doing main storyline quests, act 1 takes 30 min

Thursday, October 20, 2011 @ 11:14:16 PM

It isn't hard, unless you get glitched. I have done it with all 4. It only gives me credit for my original character. I followed the guides, did it in one sitting even.

shits terrible.

Comment #49 by Gone4aDuck
Saturday, October 22, 2011 @ 03:17:19 PM

Just got my first real taste of how glitchy this game is. Completed it with samb then logan then xian, checked the stats and it said i just needed purna so all was good. Just did it with her and it didnt pop. checked the stats and it says i need to do it with xian! I will grind it out again with xian, but i swear to god, if it then says i need to do it with another person, ill throw this s**t in the bin.

Yeah make sure if your gonna do a speed run to get past ACT one make sure u turn off public coop because if someone joins your match they can easily slow you down or even interupt ur game and it will take even longer. PLus shud prevent glitches occuring.(Hopefully) :D

Monday, January 28, 2013 @ 11:38:57 AM

Some tips:

Do your main character then do your others and if you hit a glitch then restart at chapter 4.
Do all offline
I did logan and Sam online with no issues i then did Purna and xian but when i did xian purna reappeared so i did both again and the same thing happened then i did it offline and all was sorted. Takes you about 30 mins from chapter 4. The longest part is running to the russian because you cant fast travel

I'm needing to hook up with someone to replay through the born to be wild mission in act 1. I didn't get to do the whole mission as someone joined my game and it glitched out saying i've completed it.

If anyone is starting the game or hasn't gotten to that part then please send me a message so I can replay that mission properly.

So far I have finished Act I for Xian, Logan and Purna. I have played a combination of co-op and singleplayer for all three of them and they have been checked off the list. I have the GOTYE. Not sure if that makes a difference.
