How to Get Infected Flesh in Dead Island 2

We’ve gotten some pretty weird quests, but the Body Art: Visionary quest handed to us by Francesca might be the weirdest. She’s intent on completing her magnum opus, and to do that, she’s going to need flesh. Infected Flesh. If she asked for normal flesh, we’d probably kill her… but because she’s asking for Infected Flesh, it’s okay.

If you jump the fence of her Hills mansion, you’ll likely immediately get an Infected Flesh from the nearby Shambler. But after that, it’ll seem like no matter what zombie you hit, it simply won’t drop. What gives?

Here’s the issue.

Infected Flesh can be obtained by killing any zombie, but it’s a rare drop. I’ve had the best chance of finding it while killing Apex zombies, but it’s not guaranteed. If you want to find it just lying around, you’ll need to go to any place they were performing medical experiments on zombies. CDCs, hospitals, and places like that.

It’s not guaranteed you’ll find Infected Flesh there either, and in reality, the easiest way to complete this quest is to go out and do other things. You don’t need to stay in Beverly Hills for Infected Flesh to drop, and eventually, you’ll passively collect 10.

While you’re out in the Hills, have you completed Rikky’s quest, which leads to the fantastic God and Whiskeys sword? Check out Dead Island 2: How to Complete the Ballad of Rikky Rex.
