As the special infected begin to show up in the world, you can head back to Curtis’ house and start searching for a Screamer zombie named Crystal the Lawyer. You’ll be able to find this zombie in the guest house outside. Screamers need to be dealt with quickly, as they let out a massive shriek that calls a horde of zombies to your location. A handy way to stop Screamers in their tracks is by using an electrified shuriken, this will interrupt them while they are winding up their ability or amidst a scream. Once you’ve taken care of Crystal the Lawyer, they will drop Curtis’ Safe Key. Grab this key and head back to Curtis’ Valuables Safe to secure your reward.
