Dead Island Riptide is a game about zombies, but as with any good undead game, not all zombies are reanimated equally. Without further ado, let's take a look at the enemies that you will be facing off against in Dead Island Riptide!
Perhaps the most common type of zombie in Dead Island Riptide, second to the Walker, Infected are a fast-moving enemy. Typically spawning in groups, rather than on their own, Infected can take you down with sheer speed of movement and attacks.
On their own, Infected don't present much of a challenge but in a group, you want to be cautious. Overconfidence is a mistake easily made.
Infected are noted by their fast movement speed, bloody wounds and high-pitched screams. Difficulty varies depending on the level of the Infected, but typically these are not the most challenging enemy type.
Note that due to these guides being prepared pre-release of Dead Island Riptide, some of the screenshots used here are from the original Dead Island where most of these zombie types first appeared.
