To get Curtis' Garage Key, you must find an alternative way to break into the garage.

Head to the garage and turn the corner to face the shutters. On the wall next to one of the closed shutters, you'll find a button. Press and hold the button for a few seconds to slowly open one of the shutters.

As it opens, a couple of zombies will shuffle out of the garage. Kill the zombies, and then head through the open shutter to enter Curtis' garage.

As you enter, smash the wooden crates up ahead to uncover a low passage that you can get through by crouching. Continue through to find Curtis' Garage Key on the Workbench up ahead.

From there, you can simply use Curtis' Garage Key to open the nearby gate, allowing you to get in and out with ease in the future.

This is much easier to find than Curtis' Safe Key, which tasks you with killing a special Screamer zombie that'll spawn much later in the game.

That wraps up our guide on how to find Curtis' Garage Key in Dead Island 2.
