If you’re looking for a full Dead Island 2 character list, then we’ve got your back. The game has six playable characters for players to choose from when they first fire up the game. All of these characters have their own unique personalities as well as their own traits that will influence how you play the game. All of the playable characters in Dead Island 2 are original, not utilising any of the slayers from the series’ past. 

There is also a huge cast of supporting characters you will meet on your journey, ranging from actors, fallen rockstars, people who have prepared all their life for an event like this and of course there are some scientists too. 

If you’re still wondering who you should pick before you begin your zombie slaying journey through the streets of Hell-A then here is our guide on the characters that feature in Dead Island 2, as well as our pick for the best choice. Once you have chosen your character you might want to take a look at our best skills, on top of all the zombies you can expect to appear in the game

Who is the best Slayer in Dead Island 2? 

All of the Slayers in Dead Island 2 are unique in how they play so it will depend on how you want to play. The best all round characters are Jacob and Dani, but if you favour speed you will want to use Bruno or Amy. Whereas if you wish to be a bit more of a tank Ryan will be your top choice.
