Purchase The BFG & Chicago Chopper At Wizard Island

There will be two big fights in this mission, the first being the Reacher boss, and a Horde the follows soon after. These two guns will make these fights easier. Make sure you have ammo for these as well. Suppressors aren't necessary.

5. There Are 2 Clues That Branch Off Paths

There Are 2 Clues That Branch Off Paths

When you reach the first clue, there's another clue nearby that's not highlighted past the area with a sign that says "Do Not Enter". Investigating this clue will lead to another path, however both paths will lead to the same central area further down the path.

6. & 11. Some Clues Don't Reveal The Next Path

Some Clues Don

Certain clues won't exactly reveal the next path. You'll have to explore a bit until you see a blue or yellow circle in the minimap.

9. Pick Up The Supplies In This Area

Make sure to pick up all the available supplies you can find in this area. You'll need these especially for the Horde fight ahead.

Reacher Boss Fight Tips

Use The 0.50 BFG While Focused

Use The 0.50 BFG While Focused

The BFG Sniper Rifle will make quick work of the Reacher, so equip it. Aim the weapon and use your Focus skill to keep your shots tight. Fire away and the Reacher should go down fast in a few shots.

Horde Fight Tips

This Is A Small Horde

Don't be overwhelmed since this is a relatively small Horde compared to the ones you will face in the open world. Simply prepare a few Napalm Molotovs and keep your Chicago Chopper loaded and you're set.

Throw A Napalm Molotov Towards The North East Path

Throw A Molotov Towards The North East Path

The Horde will come through the North East path near where you can find supplies and a fuel can nearby. Prepare to throw a Napalm Molotov towards this path to severely reduce the Horde that comes through.

Use Your Chicago Chopper To Kill Remaining Freakers

Use Your Chicago Chopper To Kill Remaining Freakers

A few Freakers will make it through so prepare your Chicago Chopper as they climb through the path. Shoot them off as soon as they climb up.

Another Swarm of Freakers Will Appear

After clearing the first swarm, another swarm of Freakers will soon follow. Use the same strategy of throwing a Napalm Molotov and following through with the Chicago Chopper. Be mindful of your minimap as they could also come in from the North Western path.

Use Pipe Bombs If They Are Really Close

Use Pipe Bombs If They Are Really Close

Pipe bombs are useful for taking out huge groups of Freakers that are near as it allows you enough time to gain distance before it explodes. Throw it right in front of you and run straight ahead to kill Freakers that follow you.
