Dead Island 2: increase inventory

Anyone who has already spent an hour or two in the world of the new zombie shredder Dead Island 2 will certainly have found some weapons and other consumables such as ammunition or projectiles and parts. Sooner or later the message “Inventory full” will appear and in this context the question usually arises, how can the inventory in Dead Island 2 be increased? Is it even possible to change the size of the inventory?

Inventory full: how to increase?

The short answer to the question is no, unfortunately you cannot increase the inventory or, more precisely, the backpack. In Dead Island 2 you can carry a maximum of 16 different weapons, as well as ammunition and other consumables. The limit also affects the parts, i.e. the crafting materials. Each material can be carried a maximum of 99 pieces. When the inventory is full, you have to make room and there are several ways in the game to do that.

  • Dropping weapons: Most of the time you always have one or the other weapon in your inventory that you really don’t want to use. You can then simply drop the weapons via the inventory.
  • Disassemble and recycle weapons: At the workbench, you can not only repair and improve weapons, but also disassemble weapons and use them to get useful parts for crafting.
  • Selling weapons: You can buy and sell weapons from the dealer. You can earn good money by selling weapons, which you can then spend at the dealer or use for weapon repairs and mods.

Store weapons and items

In the safe houses you will find safes in which you can store the excess items such as weapons. The safes are especially useful for storing weapons that you don’t need at the moment but might want to use again later. The stored weapons then no longer take up space in the inventory.


Palia inventory full: Expand and enlarge bag

Anyone who has already spent an hour or two in the world of the new Palia will certainly have found and picked up some items. While many items are then used again or set up in the game world, there are also some items such as materials that are left in the inventory for the time being. Sooner or later the message “Inventory is full” or “Overflowing. Make room in your bag” and nothing can be picked up anymore. In addition to the question of how to empty the inventory and throw away or sell items, the question that usually arises afterwards is how to expand the inventory. When can you get the inventory upgrade and increase the size of the bag?

Increase inventory in Palia

Yes, you can increase inventory in Palia. All you have to do is drop by good Zeki in Kilima Village. In Zeki’s shop you will find a table with a backpack on the left side. The backpack is the inventory and buying the upgraded backpack increases inventory slots. The first inventory upgrade costs 500 gold and increases the inventory slots by 8. The next upgrade then costs 5,000 gold. There are a total of three inventory upgrades that can be used to increase inventory slots to a maximum of 40 slots.

Store inventory items in the chest

Since you don’t have to lug around all the items in your inventory all the time, you can also move the items from the inventory to a storage box. The simplest storage box can be made very early in the game at the workbench with 20x sapwood and 2x flints. The storage chest has space for 400 items.

Throw away or sell items

If you no longer need the items, you can also sell them to the dealer and earn gold with them. If there is no trader in sight, you can also throw away the items from the inventory. Items will be lost in the process, so be careful what you throw on the ground. To do this, simply open the inventory and drag the item out of the inventory.
