After such a long wait, Dead Island 2 is finally here, and developer Deep Silver spared no effort to ensure that it is packed with content. The integration of Amazon Alexa is one of the game’s most interesting aspects. Learn how to control Dead Island 2 with Alexa below.
Dead Island 2: How to Use Alexa in Game
Alexa has two primary functions in the game. The first is the traditional method, where you say “Alexa” before each command, and the second is a hands-free mode. The “Alexa” wake word-independent Game Control capabilities are included right into core gameplay elements including the world map, enemy taunting, and weapon shifting. The digital assistant functions are activated with a wake phrase and function like any other Alexa device.
How Does the Game Control for Alexa Work?
You can control Dead Island 2 with Alexa instead of opening menus and cycling through weaponry. Voice commands let you to set waypoints, taunt foes, change weapons, and activate emotes. The following are the many voice command options available in Dead Island 2.
Alexa allows for multiple uses with the map, including the marking of important locations like safe homes and traders. Some of the available commands for establishing waypoints are listed below.
“Set a marker to a trader”
“Add a waypoint to fast travel map”
“Where is the safe house?”
“Show me where a workbench is.”
In the game, you may utilize Alexa to taunt specific foes by name or in general by targeting them and saying anything. You can taunt your opponents with the following commands.
“Come to papa/mama.”
“Look at me!”

Alexa can also be used to equip weapons from the player’s inventory. You can narrow your results by choosing a filter, such as “best weapons” or “most recently released weapons,” or by saying a specific type of weapon, weapon profile, or damage. The following are some examples of weapon-switching voice commands that work.
“Equip a fire mod.”
“Switch to a firearm.”
“Give me my most powerful weapon.”
“Change to an acid weapon.”
In Dead Island 2, you can use Alexa voice commands to express yourself. Wave, agree, disagree, thank, point, resupply, help, and celebrate are just some of the emotes you can activate with words. Some of the available commands are listed below.
“Med kit here.”
“Not a chance.”
“Running low on ammo.”
Deep Silver has paid care to make the game informal and user-friendly, as you may use remarkably general terms to control the gameplay. The options menu also allows you to tweak Alexa’s settings, such as turning it into a push-to-talk device, adjusting the microphone’s detection threshold, or turning it off entirely.
How Do You Make Use of Alexa’s Digital Assistant Features?
Using the wake word “Alexa,” the digital assistant can be used in the same way as an Amazon Echo device. Inquire about the time, manage your smart home, place a meal order, and do pretty much anything else. The smart-assistant capabilities are all present with a few exceptions like Amazon Music and Audible.
Alexa Game Control is now only available in the United States, the United Kingdom, and Canada, and in English; however, this may change in the future.
