Dead Island 2 has six playable characters and one of them has a striking resemblance to Lil Pump. If you don’t know who Lil Pump is, Google him and compare his image with Bruno from Dead Island 2. While you do that, let me answer and explain this question: is Lil Pump in Dead Island 2?

Dead Island 2: Is Lil Pump Bruno?

While Amy, Jacob, Dani, Ryan, and Carla all have their own vibes that are semi-similar to other characters, Bruno is the playable character that stands out as looking like Lil Pump. To answer the question, no, Bruno is not Lil Pump in Dead Island 2. However, there are some similarities that make the Bruno and Lil Pump comparison legit.

There are similarities between Lil Pump and Bruno that are undeniable. Lil Pump and Bruno share the hustler persona. Lil Pump was expelled from multiple schools growing up while Bruno was raised on the streets. They are both charming, cool, and have face tattoos.

It might be a bit of a stretch, but Bruno has a special skill called Rapid Reprisal. Since Lil Pump is a rapper that is known for songs that feature repetitive and rapid choruses, Rapid Reprisal might be a slight nod from the directors to Lil Pump.

While it would be cool to see Lil Pump voice a video game character, Bruno is actually voiced by Jay Rincon who voiced P-3 in Atomic Heart and Gilvarn in Horizon Forbidden West. Jay Rincon is a solid choice for Bruno and does a really great job.

No, Lil Pump isn’t in Dead Island 2, but you can choose to play as Bruno and just pretend it’s Lil Pump. The similarities are there, so you can just imagine him rapping “Gucci Gang” as you’re slaying zombies and getting Curtis’ Safe Key.
