Curtis' Safe Key Location in Dead Island 2

Craig Robinson

One of the first side quests you do in Dead Island 2 takes place in the home of Curtis Sinclair. After you complete the mission, you will be given "Curtis' House Keys" iconCurtis’ House Keys, which will allow you top open all of the downstairs rooms to his house. In one of those rooms will be lockbox called Sinclair’s safe, requiring "Curtis' Safe Key" iconCurtis’ Safe Key to open. If you’re new to the game, then be aware that "Curtis' Safe Key" iconCurtis’ Safe Key in Dead Island 2 is only accessible after the Justifiable Zombiecide main story mission.

(1 of 3) "Crystal the Lawyer" iconCrystal the Lawyer spawns in Sinclair's backyard after the JZ main story mission, who has the keys.

How to get Curtis’ Safe Key in Dead Island 2

"Curtis' Safe Key" iconCurtis’ Safe Key in Dead Island 2 only spawns once you have completed the main story mission, "Justifiable Zombicide" iconJustifiable Zombicide. The reason why is that this main story mission does one of two things:

  • Unlocks guns and ranged weapons
  • Spawns "Screamer" iconScreamer Zombies

This is important because the named zombie you need to kill to get the key is called "Crystal the Lawyer" iconCrystal the Lawyer, who is a "Screamer" iconScreamer that spawns inside the outhouse white building in the Sinclair yard area. You will need to return to Bel-Air once you have completed the Justifiable Zombiecide mission, and then you will be able to see the "Screamer" iconScreamer Hotspot map marker in Bel-Air where Sinclair’s garden is. Once that is there, you can find Crystal and loot the key from her body.

Once you have got the key, silenced her screams, and killed the spawned zombies, then you can head back inside the mansion and open the Sinclair "Safe" iconSafe in Dead Island 2. Opening the safe will award you with a "Tactical Heavy Revolver" iconTactical Heavy Revolver, which is another firearm you can use to slay zombies throughout the game.

This is a common theme with most of the lockboxes in Dead Island 2. Most of these lockboxes require unique keys, which only spawn on unique zombies which either spawn through unlocking a new zombie type in the open world, or a particular event spawn named zombie found through a main story mission, newly accessible area of the map, or side quest.

And there you have it, you know know how to open Curtis’ safe and get "Curtis' Safe Key" iconCurtis’ Safe Key in Dead Island 2. Good luck progressing through this game and getting this meaty reward.
