Bleed Effect

The Bleeding, or the Bleed Effect on the enemy, is a weapon effect in Dead Island that only affects zombies. When the player hits a zombie with a sharp weapon, or some blunt or thrown weapon upgraded or created with the use of certain weapon modification, they get this effect 30% of the time when they score critical damage, which drains their enemy's life for a brief period.

Bleeding mods

Below is the list of weapon modifications that give the player's weapon a chance to cause the bleeding damage, with the Bleed Effect rank shown in brackets (higher number may mean longer bleed, higher bleed damage, or any combination of the effects listed).


  • Bleeding effects can be very useful and effective against all types of zombies, with the exception of the Butcher which can regenerate over time.
