Once you arrive at Venice Beach, among a sea of restaurants, you will find one by the name of Blue Crab Restaurant. Inside here are Trent and his stoner buddies. Interacting with this group will lead to them telling you about gunshots they heard coming from the local police station, where the mission begins from.

Although this mission looks fairly easy, it is in disguise. The mission includes a tonne of hidden stuff, including having to crack electromagnetic locks. Breaking these locks requires shooting out their electrical power boxes. Check out the complete guide below!

Exploring Police Station

I was first tasked with getting to the Police Station in Venice Beach. This is an easy task since there is only one police station near the vicinity of Venice Beach. Walking over, keep an eye peeled on your surroundings; the route is polluted with Zombies and Crushers.

Once in the station, you will find an electromagnetic lock blocking your entrance. To get through this lock, shoot the panels that house the maglocks, and you will get access to the door.

Electromagnetic Locks

The 2 electromagnetic locks are placed in two different positions, which are:

  • A blue one in the restroom.
    • The restroom will be occupied by a Walker, so you will have to kill it.
    • You can then shoot the maglock box.
  • A green one in the dispatcher’s office, behind the receptionist’s desk.

Once through the electromagnetic lock, you now have unrestricted access to the office spaces in the station. On the right-hand side notice board, you will find a police department keycard and the keys to Cell #2 towards your left. Make sure to pick these up since you will need them to complete the mission.

Munitions Cell

Use the keycard to gain access to the Munitions cell and get access to a rare Assult Shotgun in one of the lockers, but before that, you will have to fend off another zombie. This one is viscous, so stay alert and do what needs to be done. 

Check out other lockers in this room to find more stuff, and once done, you can head back to the stoner boys in the Blue Crab Restaurant. On your route back, you will be greeted by a lot of Zombies, so make sure to dispose of them. 

A cool thing about this mission is that the gun will respawn here occasionally, so you can always check back and reload on a full armor set when needed.

Final Thoughts

This is all there is to know about the side quest Cold Pork Dead Island 2, and using the above information, you can easily complete the mission without a hiccup.
