Dead Island 2 Attributes List

Dead Island 2 has seven different attributes, each of which affects your character in different ways. Every character is better at one particular stat than every other character while also being the weakest at one particular stat when compared to others. This is one thing that players need to keep in mind when picking a character.

The seven Dead Island 2 attributes or stats in question are

  • Toughness
  • Stamina
  • Health Recovery
  • Critical Damage
  • Agility
  • Peak Health
  • Resilience

The Toughness attribute determines the amount of damage inflicted on your character when hit by the enemy. The amount of times you can perform different attacks and moves before you need to recharge is determined by the Stamina attribute. 

The Health Recovery attribute is pretty self-explanatory. It determines just how quickly your health will recover. The Critical Damage attribute indicates the amount of damage your critical hits will perform. The Agility attribute determines the player’s movement speed. In terms of the maximum health of the player, it is determined by the Peak Health attribute. 

And finally, the Resilience attribute offers protection against different ailments in Dead Island 2, like shock, caustic, and fire. Now that I am done explaining every single stat let us give a brief introduction of each character, their innate skills, and their stats.

Jacob– The Emperor

Jacob Attributes

Aside from the Innate skills, if I shift my attention to his stats, they are balanced overall, thus making him a fantastic choice for new players or players who want to play it safe. He is a bit weak when put up against elemental damage but considering just strong; he is against hordes. It makes the trade-off well worth it.

  • Toughness – 3
  • Stamina – 4
  • Health Recovery – 2
  • Critical Damage – 3
  • Agility – 3
  • Peak Health – 5
  • Resilience- 1

Ryan- The Tower

Ryan Attributes

If I look at his stats as a whole, I can consider Ryan your average tank in RPG games. If you are playing Dead Island 2 with friends, then one can say that you should let the most reckless player in the group play Ryan. As this character is able to handle a beating, thanks to his skills and stats. But players would need to sacrifice their Agility in order to play as this character.

  • Toughness – 5
  • Stamina -3
  • Health recovery – 3
  • Critical Damage – 2
  • Agility – 1
  • Peak Health- 3
  • Resilience – 4

Carla– The Lovers

Carla Attributes

Carla is considered one of the best characters in Dead Island 2 due to her balanced stats and her ability to perform well while being overwhelmed by enemies. She gets tougher when her health is low and gets a damage boost when multiple enemies are in the vicinity, thus making her incredibly useful in almost every type of scenario.

  • Toughness – 4
  • Stamina – 3
  • Health Recovery – 3
  • Critical Damage -1
  • Agility – 2
  • Peak Health – 3
  • Resilience – 5

Bruno- The Hermit

Bruno Attributes

Bruno is a fantastic character to use if you prefer being swift and attacking the enemy where it hurts because Bruno is a powerhouse in Critical Damage and Agility. One downside to this character is that he is incredibly weak in terms of health. Players can die very quickly while using this character, so that’s one thing to keep in mind before choosing this character.

  • Toughness – 2
  • Stamina – 3
  • Health Recovery – 3
  • Critical Damage -5
  • Agility – 4
  • Peak Health – 1
  • Resilience – 3

Dani- Wheel Of Fortune

  • Toughness – 3

Amy Attributes

Most people save the best for last, but not us. Amy is considered one of the worst, if not the worst, characters in Dead Island 2. Despite the tarot assigned to her representing strength, Amy is anything but that. She has very little health and very low defense as well so Amy can die very easily if you slip up.

The stats written below can give you a better understanding.

  • Toughness – 1
  • Stamina – 3
  • Health Recovery – 3
  • Critical Damage – 4
