How to get the Party Starter in Dead Island 2

Some quests in Dead Island 2 are straightforward, while others are a bit more obtuse. Lost and Found quests tend to fall in the latter category, with ones that reward you with a Legendary weapon often being the trickiest. Similar to the Resurrect the Rex quest, the Drunk and Disorderly quest will have you stumbling all over HELL-A trying to solve it. If you're ready to get the party started, what better weapon to do it with than the Party Starter? Here's how to finish this dizzying quest.

How to get the Party Starter weapon

After getting to the Ocean Avenue hub, you will need to begin the Drunk and Disorderly Lost and Found quest to start your march to this Legendary weapon.

Step 1: Go to the first-floor bathroom marked "Staff Only" in the Serling Hotel.

Step 2: Kill the zombie inside and retrieve the note called "Dudes Who Chug" to begin the quest.

Step 3: Fast travel to the Blue Crab HQ in Venice Beach and go right down the street to Rose's Tattoos on the corner.

Step 4: Go inside and kill the zombie named Grant. Pick up the next journal he drops.

Step 5: The next stop you need to make is at Green Gang.

Step 6: This can be found north of your current location, almost at the top of the map.

Step 8: Pick up the next clue he drops that points you toward Pier Grill.

Step 9: Fast travel over to Santa Monica Pier.

Step 10: Go to the Pier Grill restaurant and find the next journal on a bloody table outside.

Step 11: You should be attacked by several zombies, including one named Jordan.

Step 12: Defeat Jordan and collect his car keys.

Step 13: Take those keys all the way back to Ocean Avenue and go to the mall.

Step 14: Go inside the parking garage and check the first parking spot on the left for a white car.

Step 15: Use Jordan's keys to pop open the trunk and you can finally get the Party Starter!

The Party Starter is a unique brass knuckle weapon. It deals fire damage, has higher impact damage at the cost of lower speed, gives a buff to your fire resistance when you knock down or kill a zombie, and every kill gives you a damage recharge boost to heavy strikes.

How to get a Master Ball in Pokemon GO
A master ball in a lab in Pokemon GO.

Everyone who has played a Pokemon game knows that the most powerful ball is the legendary Master Ball. Most games only provide you with one of these overpowered items that lets you catch any Pokemon you want without a fight, but Pokemon GO didn't include them at all for many years. That all changed in 2023 when they were introduced as part of a special event and finally gave trainers the chance to add one to their bags. If you log in today looking to get one for yourself to have ready for when you find that elusive Pokemon you've been struggling to catch, you won't see any signs of how to get one. Like any good professor, we will instruct you on all the things you need to know about getting a Master Ball in Pokemon GO.
How to get a Master Ball
As mentioned, Master Balls were first introduced as a special event in which players could complete limited-time research tasks to earn one. After that event ended, it wouldn't be possible to get one again until months later as part of a different special event. The final opportunity occurred in November 2023, but since then there has been no way to earn a Master Ball in Pokemon GO.

As of the time of this writing, there is no ongoing event or research task in which you can earn a Master Ball. The next opportunity will be between May 14 and May 19 as part of the Catching Wonders event, which will be free for all players. As long as you start the Masterwork Research quest during this time period, you can complete it at any time and still earn a Master Ball.

How to visit Treasure Islands in Animal Crossing
Gameplay action from Animal Crossing: New Horizons for Nintendo Switch.


Decorating and designing your dream island in Animal Crossing: New Horizions takes a lot of Bells and materials. There are hundreds of ways to decorate your dream island, but the grind to get there can be a little daunting, especially with so many items being seasonal or part of holiday events. You are always encouraged to go out and visit your friend's islands via Dodo Airlines (as long as you have a Nintendo Switch Online membership) so you can trade for or snag some items from their islands. You might also have heard of special Treasure Islands you can visit. These are said to be jam-packed with all sorts of rare items to collect. As you know, you can't randomly visit other players' islands, so here's how you can reach them.
What are Treasure Islands?
Treasure Islands are islands made by players with the specific purpose of providing easy access to tons of items in Animal Crossing: New Horizions. These can include all sorts of DIY items, money bags, seasonal and holiday items, and more. However, be warned that some Treasure Islands are created by people who have modified their game. Grabbing an item from these islands shouldn't put your account at risk as we have yet to see any reports of players being banned for visiting a hacked island, but you should still do so at your own risk.

The best State of Decay 2 mods
State of Decay 2 Review

You can't say State of Decay 2 hasn't gotten more than its fair share of developer support. Not only did it receive plenty of extra content and updates after launch, but it even continues to be worked on years after State of Decay 3 was announced. Being an open-world zombie survival game with tons of RPG and management elements, it wasn't long before modders saw all the potential there was to tweak, add to, and fully customize this great game to be even better. Modders have done everything from increasing the difficulty to enhancing the immersion with new lighting, so we've scavenged the net for only the best State of Decay 2 mods to recommend.
Unlock Developer Menu

When a game is still being made, developers often include a special menu they can access to change various settings on the fly to test things out. Typically, these menus are then disabled for the full release since they would essentially allow anyone to cheat and break the game. The Unlock Developer Menu mod brings that feature back so you can change all sorts of options with ease. You can think of it like accessing a command menu, only it's much more user-friendly. With it, you can do things like spawn weapons, zombies, and plague hearts, and add followers and enclaves just by hitting F2. The only thing to be aware of is that not all the functions are enabled, and the modder isn't planning on fixing them since it was not created by them, only reenabled.
