How to get the Party Starter in Dead Island 2

Some quests in Dead Island 2 are straightforward, while others are a bit more obtuse. Lost and Found quests tend to fall in the latter category, with ones that reward you with a Legendary weapon often being the trickiest. Similar to the Resurrect the Rex quest, the Drunk and Disorderly quest will have you stumbling all over HELL-A trying to solve it. If you’re ready to get the party started, what better weapon to do it with than the Party Starter? Here’s how to finish this dizzying quest.

The Party Starter is a unique brass knuckle weapon. It deals fire damage, has higher impact damage at the cost of lower speed, gives a buff to your fire resistance when you knock down or kill a zombie, and every kill gives you a damage recharge boost to heavy strikes.
