Dead Island

Dead Island Achievements

Gladiator school

Survive 15 consecutive waves with each of the 4 characters.  

Using your highest level character, you'll want to find a co-op group and go for "Morituri te salutant" and "Death Incarnate." With the remaining three characters, you'll still want to use Arena A (Easy), since then you'll only need five waves of each of the harder arenas to finish "Looking for Trouble" and can do so using your highest level character to make it easier.

This one's gonna be annoying as hell... the only thing I can think of to make
it easy is to just have a friend carry you through the 15 waves with a level 60
character. If it's anything like Mad Moxie from Borderlands then just have the
low level character host the game, make sure the high level character turns off
that stupid new option to have the enemies scale with them and there ya go.

This is gonna take forever though...

Has anyone had a glitch with this? I beat it with Logan, then Purna (which said 2 of 4), then with Xian and it said 2 of 4, then with Sam B and it still says 3 of 4. I went back again with all of them and still nothing. ANyone one else have this problem or know how to fix it? This and looting 5 weapons are the only ones I need for completion.

Can your character not die during these 15 waves? or is it the whole team?

Comment #20 by a dying animal
Friday, April 27, 2012 @ 05:51:02 AM

You can die, your team just needs to complete wave 15 (start wave 16). Coop is obviously recomended and this is a must: IF YOU START A NEW CHARACTER (AFTER COMPLETING THE GAME) YOU CAN CHOOSE TO START AT CHAPTER 4, DOING SO WILL MEAN YOUR CHARACTER STARTS AT LEVEL 13 AND HAS 14 SKILL POINTS TO SPEND.

@30 Same problem. I left the game to play BL2, pretty sure I left with having the Xian to do, finished her last night, but still says 3/4. Will try to get them all done again to be safe, but yuck, so annoying.

Comment #32 by spxyu02
Thursday, October 11, 2012 @ 10:38:30 PM

@31 (myself) Finished it tonight by going through with Purna. The issue may have been that I did her 1-15 run in a separate arena, or that I did in fact die during one round and was never revived. (On the other hand, you CAN be downed and revived, and your 1-15 streak will remain intact, occurred on my Purna run tonight)

This can easily be done with lower level characters. All you need is around 150 Molotov cocktails, and approximately 30 deo bombs. As you need to get each character up to Chapter 2 for an achievement, theses will all be available. When you enter the hotel in the resort, there are 10 bottles of alcohol behind a bar near the beginning. Collect, then reload checkpoint . Keep doing until you can hold no more (Very boring, but worth it). I filled 15 slots with 30 bottles each. Once done, leave the hotel the way you came in, and go to harlan who gives you the 'Death in a glass' side quest, making molotovs for 3 alcohol. For the deo bombs, you may have to buy some ingredients. Go to the arena lobby and enter arena D. Go up the stairs to the roof on the right, and stand in the furthest corner. The

Comment #45 by cjrlia
Saturday, March 23, 2013 @ 04:52:46 AM

Then, throw 2 molotovs at a time at the stairs closest to you, and across the bridge the other side. The deo bombs are useful for clearing up the annoying floaters who wont burn to death. All in all, it took me 45 minutes per character to collect enough molotovs, and complete the 15 levels. I didn't get hit once. Hope this is helpful to all those who are struggling - happy hunting :)

For those having an issue with this achievement, I too had it. I survived 15 waves with Logan, Sam B and Xian, so 3 out of 4 was shown in the stats. However, after surviving, rather than 15, 30 waves with Purna, the achievement didn't pop. I restarted and tried it again, even in a different arena, but nothing happened... So I changed characters, played with Xian again and... voilá! Achievement unlocked!
