How to Get the Emma’s Wrath Legendary Weapon in Dead Island 2

Among the Legendary weapons in the game, Emma’s Wrath Sledgehammer is probably the easiest one to get due to the straightforward nature of tasks. All you need to do is complete the campaign.

Basically, the final mission of the game, Hollywood Ending, leads to a confrontation with a character that has been wracked by mutations. After taking out this foe, you’ll have to escape the facility and make it back to the helicopter.

During the interaction at the helicopter, you’ll receive Emma’s Wrath as a gift. 

Emma’s Wrath Mods and Perks

Here are the mods and perks for the Legendary Sledgehammer:

  • Mod: Superior Melee Impactor: Major physical damage and force boost; successive hits apply the traumatized effect, with the next hit causing the target to fly away and damage anything that it hits.
  • Perk: Guardian: Gain a moderate toughness boost when using this weapon.
  • Fixed Perk #1: Overkill: Use Skull Stomp or Counter on a zombie to prime the weapon. Once primed, your next hit will trigger a shotgun blast.
  • Fixed Perk #2: Shockwave: Knocking down a zombie triggers a forceful explosion on impact.

Given the above, it’s clear that Emma’s Wrath is one of the best weapons in Dead Island 2. Sledgehammers are already considered one of the top-tier melee weapons due to their incredible damage and area-of-effect wallops, so having something with four modifiers, with an extra one that can be added, is just icing on the cake.
