If you've been wandering around the Halprin Hotel in Dead Island 2, then you've probably come across the locked military box sitting on the raised section in the lobby. Without a key, that chest is staying firmly locked, and it's not the easiest thing to hunt down a key in the carnage of Hell-A, which is why this guide will show you how to get the Military Courier's Key in Dead Island 2

Before we get into the guide, though, if you want to hear our opinions on the game, then you should check out our review.


How to Find the Military Courier's Key in Dead Island 2

Once she comes running for you, the solution seems quite clear. 

The first thing you need to do to get your hands on the Military Courier's Key is to complete your mission at the Halprin Hotel, which means completing your encounter with the first Crusher zombie you come across. Then, keep going until you unlock fast travel, and pay a return visit to the hotel. If you keep hanging around the lobby making noise, you'll eventually attract the attention of a runner zombie called "Military Courier" who has the key you're looking for. 

Fighting the Military Courier

Luckily, this fight isn't a tough one. The Miltiary Courier is a regular Runner zombie who can be reliably taken out in much the same way as any other. Try to rely on quick attacks when she runs at you, but you can always charge up a heavy hit to completely tear right through her once the zombie is dazed. Either way, once she's down, grab the key as your reward. 

Where to use the Military Courier's Key

This little chest is what's causing all the trouble. 

Once you've got the key, the only thing you need to know is where the actual box itself is.


Head over to the lobby of the Halprin Hotel, and head towards the door that leads to the disgusting pool. Before you actually leave, keep an eye peeled to your left to find a raised area of the lobby. Tucked away in one corner of that raised section the Military Courier's Box is hidden. Use your key to get it open and acquire yourself a decent reward for your trouble.
