How to Complete the Resurrect the Rex Quest in Dead Island 2

In the chaotic world of Dead Island 2, where the zombie apocalypse reigns, you’ll come across a cast of characters who don’t seem to grasp the seriousness of the situation. One such couple, living amidst an undead horde in LA, remains unfazed. An aging rock star, not as sharp as he once was, decides to retrieve his band’s old recordings from a friend’s house. Willingly, you step in to help him out. If you’re having trouble locating the washed-up star’s nostalgia-inducing tunes, allow us to assist you.

How to Complete the Resurrect the Rex Sidequest

To unlock this sidequest, you must reach the point in the story where you’re pursuing Michael and entering Beverly Hills for the first time. You’ll encounter Rikki Rex, completely hungover in his home, during the main mission. Once you assist him and obtain a clue to progress the story, there’s nothing more to do regarding him at that moment.

Only after completing the “Kwon With The Wind” mission and gaining access to the next zone, will this side mission become available.

Step 1: Rex’s Favor

Return to Rex’s house and have a conversation with him. Rather than letting him attempt to retrieve his old records himself, you volunteer to do it on his behalf.

Step 2: Searching the Friend’s House

The mission marker will guide you to his old friend’s house, where the three tracks you seek are located. Upon arrival, you need to manually search the entire house to find them.

Step 3: First Floor Find

The first record can be found on the ground floor. Enter the house, proceed through the entryway into the kitchen. The record lies on the floor beside the counter.

Step 4: Electrifying Second Floor

The second collectible is situated on the second “floor,” essentially a curved hallway surrounding the stairs. It rests on a shelf, blocked by electrified water. While one option is to endure the damage, snatch the item, and quickly retreat if you have sufficient health, another approach is to navigate around the opposite side of the stairwell and deactivate the generator for a safer retrieval.

Step 5: Zombie Swarm on the Third Floor

As you ascend to the third floor, you’ll encounter a swarm of zombies. It’s not necessary to defeat them all. The final piece of music you need is outside on the balcony, tucked away in a small chair in the corner. Grab it and make your escape, whether by force or tact.

Step 6: Delivering the Goods

Return to Rex and deliver the recovered records to satisfy this aging rocker. In return, you’ll earn 2,000 XP and acquire the Pole Saw weapon.
