"Six Feet Under" is a side quest in Dead Island given to the Hero by Owain at the Church within the City of Moresby.


The Hero must provide Owain with a spade, so he can bury the bodies of the deceased.

Despite Owain asking for either a shovel or a spade, the quest description only specifies spade, and so he will only accept spades. He won't accept rusty ones either, nor will he accept broken spades.

Spade locations

See the Gallery below for more details


A spade is found inside the fence in front of the Old Marina Workshop where the Hero takes the armored truck to be modified during Act I before leaving to Moresby. (See the "Misery Wagon" article for more details.) Standing in the workshop looking out, it is on the right by a barrel. You can grab this and give it to Jin before leaving.

A spade can also be found outside of the Water Sports Rental kiosk. This is the building on the beach in the Golden Beach area that gets opened up after the Hero rescues Haris who is trapped in a broken SUV. The kiosk is situated between a yellow and blue awning and has a workbench inside.


Two spades can be found in front the River Village safe house, the hut where Jin leads the Hero when first entering the Jungle during Act III; it's convenient as it's very close to a fast travel portal.


  • After the quest is complete there will be a large grave in the cemetery with a Shovel (not a spade) on it. A hand with a set of Brass Knuckles sticks out of the mound. If taken, both will respawn just like other items found lying around in the game world.
