The streets of Los Angeles have been swamped with tons of Zombies and it is up to you to save the day! Of course, I am talking about Dead Island 2.

Dead Island 2 has some pretty nasty-looking zombies. Your goal is to make sure the streets of Los Angels are safe again. If you are looking to accomplish that goal, you are going to naturally find yourself coming into contact with tons of different types of zombies

There are a total of 31 different zombie types that you can find throughout the game. If you are looking to complete the Zompedia, you are going to have to kill at least one of each of the 31 zombie types (20 Common types, 11 Apex types) found in the game.

If you are unsure of what zombies you have come across yet and killed, you can look at your Zompedia in the game and it will tell you.

Common zombies are a lot easier to kill than Apex type zombies as Apex zombies have a lot more health than Common zombies do. It might seem like a lot of zombies that you have to defeat in order to complete the Zompedia, but in reality, it is not as difficult as you might think. A lot of these zombies you will come across naturally at some point throughout the game.
