“My boss got bitten and turned into a fucking maniac and I had to beat his goddamn head in with a goddamn wrench.”
— Matt, talking about his boss.
Matt Horton is a survivor featured in Dead Island. As the objective of Survivor, he is found inside a shop near the Warehouse, calling for help. He has locked himself inside, while a number of zombies assault the front of the building. Once the undead have been cleared from the area, he unlocks the door, allowing the Hero to enter. He reveals that he is an employee at the store, and that his boss became infected and tried to bite him, forcing him to strike him multiple times on the head with a wrench. However, his undead boss then rises from behind the counter and must be killed.
