How to complete Fool’s Gold In Dead Island 2

In a zombie apocalypse, weapons are commodities!

Dead Island 2 is a first-person zombie basher game where you, the main protagonist and a survivor, find yourself amidst the chaos of the zombie apocalypse. Finding out that you're immune to the virus, your main goal is to get out of Hell-A, formerly known as Los Angeles. But why would the end of the world stop you from completing side quests and getting a proper legendary weapon? The Lost and Found Quest Fool's Gold has been proving troublesome for some players because it doesn't tell you where to go; instead, you must follow the paper trail of journal clues. Let's dive right in!
