The main thing in the loot is a rare weapon that can be customized and upgraded. Moreover, players can carry up to three fuses at a time. This indirectly means that you can open at most three locked doors with fuses.

To use them, players must interact with an open fuse box and place it inside, unlocking nearby doors or shutters. These previously locked areas contain consumables, parts, and a Zombproof Slayer Hoard crate that contains rare or uncommon customizable weapons, such as katanas or sledgehammers.

Fuses are not required to complete any side quests or main story missions in Dead Island 2. They only create a bridge for you to get rare items to help you during your gameplay.

Fuse Locations

As mentioned, to acquire fuses in Dead Island 2, players must purchase them from traders encountered throughout Dead Island 2. These traders can be found near fast-travel spots or during specific missions. You can also collect and sell weapons and cash to obtain fuses if they need help finding a trader.

The first trader you will meet is Carlos. He will be inside Emma Jaunt’s house, the hub. You can buy a fuse from him for $1500.

Find the marked fuse boxes in various locations throughout the game. A question mark icon may indicate a fuse box that players can investigate. Once players have used a fuse to open a door, the icon will gray out with a green tick.

After opening the door using the fuse, you can collect consumables and parts to increase their supplies. However, you should be careful, as zombies and traps are usually in these rooms.

There are three methods to tackle the traps; you can disarm the tripwires connected to shotguns by luring zombies into them, shooting them, or carefully approaching and disarming them. Moreover, players should acquire fuses from traders and ensure they have them when exploring. 

Inside The Mansion

At the very beginning, you might be asked to complete several missions inside the mansion. After you finish, you must visit a house next to the estate, which is a hub.

As you enter, you will witness a trader at his station. His name is Carlos, and you buy the fuse from him for $1500.

Note that every room that requires a fuse to be opened will have many zombies inside, which must be killed. Therefore, when you are about to visit such areas, always keep close-range combat weapons with you.

Where To Use The Fuse

Room One

The first room where you can use the fuse is at the back of the house, the hub. To get there, go to the front of the house and take the narrow path to its right. Open the small door and continue down the stairs.

Keep following the stairs that will take you to the back of this house when you go left. Another similar small door will be there. Open it, and at the end of this path, you will see a parked car on the side of a closed gate.

It would be best if you went to the other side of the gate by getting on the trash can and making a jump. Go through the open gate and make a right to reach the desired location finally.
