Dead Rising tips (PS4)

Overtime mode
Successfully complete all case missions up to The Facts. Then, talk to Isabela in Carlito’s hideout before and after the 10 a.m. intermission sequence. Then, return to the helipad by 12:00 p.m. on the 22nd to unlock Overtime mode.

Infinity mode
Successfully complete Overtime mode to get the “True Ending” and unlock Infinity mode. In Infinity mode, you lose 1 life bar per 100 real seconds. It requires 20 real minutes to lose all 12 life bars if you have them. This equals four game hours.

Small chainsaws
After killing Adam the clown by the rollercoaster in Wonderland Plaza, he will drop a chainsaw. Pick it up before you activate the control to stop the ride. After the intermission sequence, another chainsaw will spawn at the location. Pick it up. Get the Criminal book from the back of the bookstore where you find the Japanese tourists, and the Engineering and Entertainment books from the Book Store accros from the toy store and CD store in Paradise Plaza. These will give you three duration enhancers for the small chainsaws that you get from the clown, which will make these powerful weapons last for a long time. These chainsaws can kill Bosses in two or three hits and are great crowd killers.

After killing Adam and getting the small chainsaws he uses, grab the Criminal Biology, Engineering, and Entertainment books to make them last nearly forever. They are the best weapon in the game.

Use the following trick to get unlimited small chainsaws. After you defeat Adam the clown in Wonderland Plaza, you can get a small chainsaw. Then, press the button to stop the roller coaster and another small chainsaw will appear. You can take the survivor back to the security room to earn some PP if desired. Go back to Wonderland Plaza. Go to the location where you got the small chainsaws. There will be another one there. You can leave the plaza, return, and get another one as many times as desired.

Go to the Paradise Plaza. Go to the second floor and find the Colombian Roastmasters in the food court. Look over the rail and you should see an orange platform. Jump on it and there should be a katana there. The katana is a one hit kill weapon and chops the limbs off the zombies. It is one of the most powerful weapons in the game.

Molotov Cocktails
After the Boss fight where you fight Paul, he will be engulfed in flames. Do not kill him. Instead, pick up the fire extinguisher in the store to put out the fire. Then, bring Paul back to the security room. If done correctly, there may be two women as well. After a while, you will receive a call saying that Paul has a present for you. Go back to the security room to meet Paul. Continue to talk to him and he will give you an unlimited supply of Molotov Cocktails.

Get to the Entrance Plaza for the first time — when the man tells you to look for barricades. Notice that one of the men talking near the entrance has a shotgun. When the zombies attack, run up to his body. It is in midst of a tightly packed zombie swarm. Pick up the shotgun and run upstairs. This weapon is very good for some of the first Bosses, like Convicts.

Sub-machine gun
Jump from the stairs closest to you when you start to the blue ledge above Kid’s Choice Clothing. Keep following the walkway past the stuffed bear all the way to the end to find the sub-machine gun.

When you exit the warehouse at the start of the game, go up the closest set of stairs on your right. When you are at the level part of the stairs, jump onto the blue ledge beside you. Once you have jumped onto the ledge, walk against the wall while still going forward. There will be a teddy bear, a bottle of orange juice, and a box. Walk even further to find an Uzi by itself on the next ledge.

Go to the food court and look to the left (if entering from Leisure Park). You will see a big statue of a chef above a sign. Jump onto the place where the waiter would usually stand at a restaurant, then jump onto the ledge beside the chef. If you look closely, you can see an Uzi beside the chef.

Go to the Al Fresca Plaza. Find the fountain near the entrance to the plaza, which will have about 200 zombies wandering in a circle. Jump into the center of the fountain to find a dumbbell, and next to it an Uzi.

Go to the parking lot leading to the underground parking garage. Get into the sports car and drive to the part in the tunnel where there is a dead end that makes a “T” formation. Go through the door at the very end of the “T”. Walk to the left and look behind a few barrels to find an Uzi. The maintenance key is also in this room.

Easy guns early
To get the shotgun and sniper rife, you must defeat Cletus, the owner of the gun store. If you go there before you finish the first mission where you help Brad, you do not have to fight the store owner. You can get as many shotguns and sniper rifles as desired to assist you during the first few missions. These weapons are very powerful and useful. Note: This also works on the third day.

Recommended weapon combo
Have the Mega Blaster unlocked, Adam’s small chainsaws, the three books to enhance his chainsaws, and the rest however desired. Just by using the Mega Blaster and the chainsaws, you can last a long time without picking up different weapons. When they run out, just pick up the chainsaws at the rollercoaster in Wonderland Plaza and the Mega Blaster will be in the security room if you drop it or it runs out of ammunition.

Trip attack
When you jump, press Square when your feet are just off the ground. You should drop to the ground spinning your leg, tripping zombies. You will get 30 PP for each zombie you hit. This is very difficult to do while moving.

Easy PP
Start the game and take five pictures of the man fighting the zombies on the car, then take five pictures of the zombies attacking the bus. Then, take five pictures of the gas station blowing up. Next, take five pictures of the girl on the roof, making sure you get her shooting one of the zombies, when she falls off, and one of her on the ground. When you get in the mall for the first time, take pictures of all the people. When you get to the roof, find Jeff on the right side. Then, find his wife on the other side and get a good picture of them hugging for a lot of points. Take them back to the security room. If done correctly, you should be at level 2. Get out into the mall and get killed, save your status, and quit. Do this 25 times and you will be at level 50 at the beginning of the game. This is very helpful because you will have all you skills up and all other things maxed out.

Start the game and allow the intermission sequence to continue while you take pictures from the helicopter. Take a picture of the man fighting the zombies on the car, the zombies on the boss, and the women fighting the zombies, and when she falls off. Also take pictures of anything else interesting. Then, skip through all of the beginning until you are at the security room for the first time. Go out and find Jeff near the elevator leading to the warehouse. Go to the other side and find his wife Natalie when they hug and kiss. Take a picture to get 7,000 PP. Continue playing until the first Boss fight with Carlito. Kill him to get 20,000 PP, then shoot all the dishes to get at least 30,000 PP. Then, wait for the call for Barricade A; it is in Al Fresca Plaza barricaded with a plywood panel and a bench. If you have learned the move, double kick once to break them and go in. Burt and Aaron are in here. Burt will hit you several times until you hit him a few times (four good jump kicks). Give Burt a good weapon. Do not give Aaron one as he does not use it. You will get 20,000 PP for them joining and 20,000 PP for escorting them. Before escorting them, find Leah Stein in a jewelry store. Keep talking to her until she comes with you. You will get a join bonus again. Escort her for another 20,000 PP. For anyone else you can find, get them to get a join bonus and escort them for a fair amount of PP.

While on the helicopter at the beginning, take a picture of the gas station as it explodes to get more PP. Also, take a picture of the women being tackled off the roof as she is in the air to get more PP points.

When you first come out of the vents to the rooftop at the beginning, turn left and go to the far end of the roof. A woman named Natalie will be standing there. Talk to her and make her follow you (kicking the soccer ball at her is also something you can try). Take her to the other side of the roof where the elevator is located, then go to the far end there. You will see a man named Jeff creeping around the dumpster. Immediately take out your camera. Quickly take a picture of the two of them hugging and kissing for 10,000 PP.

In any food area in the mall (for example, Jill’s Sandwiches and the Colombian Roastmaster), pick up a frying pan and examine the stove. You will get 2,000 PP for using the stove. When the frying pan is red hot, you can use it to get another 100 PP for every zombie you kill by holding Square and burning their face.

The microwaves can cook frozen and uncooked food products with a 2,000 PP bonus (similar to the frying pan). You only get the bonus once for each of the microwaves (six or seven in all), including a 10,000 PP bonus for getting them all. In addition, cooked foods provide more health, but eat it right away or it will spoil.

Enter the Chris’ Fine Foods restaurant in the Food Court. Break the large dishes sitting on stands on the east wall for 1,000 PP each and a 10,000 PP bonus for destroying all of them.

In the toy shop, hit the giant servbot until the swirly eyes are lined up with the sad face for 10,000 PP.

Go into the gym across from the hardware store. Knock down the punching bags to get 2,000 PP per bag, and 10,000 PP after you knock down all the bags.

In the gym, run on the treadmills for 2,000 PP each. You will receive a speed boost and a 10,000 PP bonus for running on all the treadmills. The Gym is also a Safe room. Zombies cannot enter it unless you break the glass.

Repeatedly hit a clothes rack so that it spins to get a 2,000 PP bonus.

Get in the rollercoaster in Wonderland when it is not out of control. Ride on the roller coaster until it stops to get 10,000 PP.

Go to the plaza outside of the warehouse some time on the second day. You will see an intermission sequence showing someone about to murder a trapped girl in a box. After the scene the man is nowhere to be found, but there will be strange people in masks and yellow raincoats that will attack you if you get too close to them. They all have good knives. For every one of these psychopaths you kill, you will get 500 PP. If you see one of them throw up his arms and shout, he will have just lit a stick of dynamite. If you are low on health, run toward him. When he grabs you, shake him off then run. The blast should take out his friends. The best weapon to use against them is a handgun; try to aim for the head. Be careful when fighting them with a melee weapon. They will sometimes try to gas you for capture. If this happens, you are not dead but will lose all your weapons and must escape. After you are out of the box, go directly ahead. Grab the folding chair and walk slowly to the large group of worshippers to attract some of them. Try not to alert all of them at once, just about two or three. When that weapon breaks, start to use the jump kick on them. When you have cleared out a good number of them and you have an open path, run towards the carpet they are praying to. On the red carpet is a sword. It should take them out fairly quickly, allowing you to escape.

Kill a Spec Ops to get his machine gun. Go to Seon’s Supermarket in Overtime mode. There should be over eight Spec Ops there. Enter the pharmacy and close the double doors leading to the corridor to the pharmacy. They will all stand in front of the door if they see you and not do anything. Go to the window in the front of the pharmacy and shoot them down with the machine gun. To repeat this, get new machine guns from the bodies and exit via the maintenance door in the corridor. Shoot any Spec Op from the front window to make them all crowd in front of the door again. You will get 1,500 PP per Spec Op. You must successfully complete Overtime mode though to keep the PP. Do this after giving Isabella nine Queens and having one in hand for when you decide to finish.

Easy zombie kills
Go to the parking garage in Leisure Park. Get in the car parked outside. Drive down into the parking garage and run over zombies by going left and following the tunnel until you get to another vehicle. When you reach it, switch vehicles and drive back out. The car will have respawned. Repeat this process until you have killed as many zombies as desired.

Avoiding zombies
When walking in groups of zombies that you know are going to grab you, start jumping. This allows you to go to the area that you wish to travel to without being grabbed by a zombie. Zombies cannot grab you while you are in the air.

Unlimited zombie hallway
Go to the entrance plaza then go upstairs. Go to the end with the bee, then go to the door marked “Exit”. This hallway is the one from the very beginning that Otis sealed off. It is a dead end but has a lot of zombies that will continuously respawn. This allows you to get a lot of kills quickly. You can also stop by the antique store on the way and pick up a few katanas or battle axes for very fast kills.

Take no falling damage
When falling from a height that would cause damage, use the Knee Drop skill if you have unlocked it. Not only will you not take any falling damage, but you will also squish any zombies that you land on.

Healing survivors
If you are having trouble with survivors getting low on health and dying while you escort them back to the security room, carry enough health items for yourself and a survivor or two. Orange juice and coffee creamer work good because they heal fairly well, and nothing is needed to make them.

Equipping survivors
When giving survivors weapons, try to give them blades such as katanas or cleavers. The small chainsaws Adam uses are also good, but remember to switch them for something else before going into the security room. Also, if you prefer guns, shotguns and a sub-machine gun are good except for the stray bullets that hit you. If you give them a gun, try to give survivors shotguns. They will kill the zombies around them and you. They help each other out and very little damage is done if they hit you or each other.

Give survivors the best weapon possible because they do not waste ammunition and the item never breaks. This is useful if you want them to shoot all the zombies while you do something else such as Boss fights. Use this for Cletus. Focus on Cletus while a survivor such as Burt or any other one shoots the zombies.

Escorting survivors
When escorting survivors, use waypoints (go into aim mode and press Triangle) instead of having them follow you. This makes them go directly to the waypoint instead of walking around trying to get to you. This also gives you time to help any stragglers. Make sure to set the waypoint in a safe area and do not stray too far from it unless you absolutely have to.

Paradise Plaza shortcut
After you defeat Adam the clown and stop the roller coaster, a Willamette employee will be on the ride. His name is Greg Simpson, and he will tell you he knows a shortcut back to Paradise Plaza. You will follow him into the women’s restroom, where he will stand near the sink and say “Go right through here and you’ll be in Paradise Plaza”. It is difficult to understand what he is talking about. Jump up on the sink and an icon will appear that reads “Paradise Plaza”. You now can simply leap back and forth from the women’s restrooms in Paradise Plaza and Wonderland Plaza. Not only is this a useful shortcut, but it is also quite helpful in getting survivors back to the security room safely.

Keeping clothes
If you die and choose to save and start a new game, you will be wearing whatever items of clothing you had when you saved. This means you could be naked except for your boxers, wearing children’s clothing, etc.

Getting back your regular outfit
If at anytime you change into an outfit you do not like, you can get back your default outfit in the janitor’s room, underneath the stairs leading to the heliport.

Easy Hostile Survivors Escort mission
On the third day before you start the Bomb Run mission, make sure you visit the “Huntin’ Shack” in the North Plaza; however, do not go charging in. There are three people inside who will keep shooting at you. Make sure you have a picture of the air duct that leads to the Security Room going in. First, open the door and walk in a little bit. You will get barraged by bullets. Turn your back to them and the bullets will make you stumble out of the shop. One of them will come to the door to see how you are. Speak to him but do not go too far in. Talk to Jonathan and Frank will eventually mention the Security Room. This is when they will demand a picture of the air vent as proof. Once they have seen the picture, they will join your group. This is a reasonably easy escort as they all have guns. Take them through the Leisure Park. It is quicker and by now the Convicts should be easy to kill. Make sure you take Brett’s machine gun from him before you go in the Security Room as it is a very good weapon.

Perfect Erotica photo
After you talk to Kent and do his mini-mission to take pictures of him, there will be an in intermission sequence where he shows you pictures he has taken and asks if you can do better. This will give you scoop information on the next challenge for him on the next day. For that event, you will need a perfect “Erotica” picture (saved from a previous game or during that same game; the game allows you to choose from your picture viewer). Save Selphie, the girl that is being chased by the convicts out in the park. When you have her safely back to the security room, she will be in the room beside the couch that you can save at. Go in the room to make her stand up. Stand away from her and zoom your camera in around her knees. She will start to sit down. Take a picture the moment you can see up her skirt for a perfect “Erotica” shot that can be used for Kent’s challenge. This may require more than one attempt, as the timing must be precise.

Later in the game, after Brad is shot and becomes ill with a fever, you have a chance to take an “Erotica” picture and not only score a perfect, but get a lot of points as well. As soon as Frank tells Jessica that he will find some medicine and you have control again, open the door that leads into the room with the vent. Step into the doorway, then turn around so that you are facing Brad and Jessica. At this point, you should see Brad laying down on the bed, and Jessica sitting on the edge of the bed looking at him. Take out your camera, zoom in, and try to focus the camera on her chest, or a little below it, then take the picture. If done correctly, you should get an “Erotica” circle for both Jessie’s chest, and the opening in her skirt below. Doing this can net a perfect score, as well as several thousand PP. You can save this picture to later show to Kent upon playing over again.

Although 900 PP will satisfy Kent, for the absolute highest points received for an “Erotica” picture make sure to save Cheryl from the Raincoat Cult. She is not one of the four that are tied up. After you defeat Sean (the cult leader), you will receive the movie warehouse key. Open the door next to the left side of the movie screen. A very scantily dressed Cheryl will be inside. Near the end of the game, Otis will tell you that she wants to see you. When you get back to her, she will ask you to take some pictures of her in several poses. When she sits down on the floor, if you get the angle correct, you can get at least 1500 PP for her “Erotica” picture.

Perfect Horror photo
After rescuing Jeff and his wife Natalie, go into the saferoom where they are waiting. Sometimes Natalie will be sitting on the floor holding her knees. At such a time, you can take an upskirt photo of her. Instead of “Erotica” however, it will be classified as “Horror”.

To get a perfect “Horror” picture for Kent’s challenge, get to the mission where you must fight Carlito for the second time in the Entrance Plaza. On your way over to the Entrance Plaza, Otis will radio you and tell you that there are two people in a shoe store in Wonderland Plaza. Go over there and get a gun from one of the security guards before reaching your destination. When you walk in you will see a man and a woman standing in the corner of the store. The man will be hurt. After a brief conversation the man will ask if he can borrow your gun. Give him your gun and immediately aim your camera at him. The man will commit suicide. You only have a brief moment to snap a picture. If done correctly, you will have a perfect “Horror” picture with 10,001 PP (the single point because of his wound). The woman will be devastated and will not move. You must leave her behind. If you do not get a gun before you talk to this couple, the man and woman will follow you to the security room.

No generator in Overtime mode
If you check the clock tower earlier in the game (where you see the intermission sequence showing the opening of the cave crammed with zombies), you will not have to get a spare generator for Isabela in Overtime mode, just ten Queens to stop Frank’s zombification. If you wait until Overtime mode, at the point where you gather all the supplies for her, she will tell you that you must get the backup generator behind the clock tower before you can go after the Queens.

Infinite ammunition for military jeep .50 cal
When you are in the park in the middle of the mall, there should be three convicts in a military style jeep. If not, they will show up later in the game. Try to kill them. The Uzi you find on the balcony inside the mall works best. Kill the gunner first. If you kill the driver, the passenger will start to drive instead. When the gunner shoots, just move to the left or right until he stops. He cannot hit you if done correctly. You only have a second or two before he shoots again. You must hit him with a couple bullets, then start running again. Some time may be required to kill him, but it is worth it. After the gunner is dead, you can take the gun off the vehicle. After you have it, kill the other two convicts in the vehicle. You will get the jeep, an achievement, and a .50 cal. Shoot as many zombies as you can with the bullets you have. After your raid, get in the jeep. You will drop the gun. Look at where the gun was before you took it off. There is an empty slot there. When in the park, follow the perimeter. There is a road that you can turn into to go to a small parking lot. Go to the parking lot. There should be a motorcycle and a red car here. Inside the lot, there is a road that goes down into the basement parking lot. Go down with the jeep. There are a lot of zombies down there. This is a good location to get the Group Photo achievement. When you are done loading the level, look at your gunner slot. A gun should now be there. Drive around a little until you get to a location where you can get out take off the gun. Do not drive far, as you may get lost. Shoot everything until your ammunition is gone. Get back into the jeep. Once again there will be no gun in the slot. Leave by the same way you came in. You can stay down there, but do not just run over victims because there are some zombies with oxygen tanks that will explode when run over. Enough of these will render your car useless and prevent the gun from appearing again. When you get out of the underground lot and load the level again, look at the gun slot. Another gun will be there. Keep going down and up, loading another part of the level to spawn another gun. You can keep doing this for easy kills and an easy shooting 1,000 rounds of ammo achievement.

Fight convicts again
Use the following trick to fight the convicts in the park area again for more PP and a fully loaded machine gun. After killing the convicts, get into their car and do not touch the turret. Drive into the parking lot garage. Drive around for awhile, then drive out. Take the gun and leave. When you return to the park, you will see the trio riding around the park again. Kill them again and repeat as many times as desired.

Defeating Adam the clown
When the intermission sequence finishes, if Adam slashes Frank with his chainsaws it will do a lot of damage. To defeat him, you will need a handgun. If you do not have one, there are zombie policemen upstairs next to the bookshop. Adam will start to perform attacks at random when he blows up a colored balloon. When he is finished and about to throw it at you, quickly aim and fire your handgun at the balloon close to him. It will pop and do some damage to him. Do this until he runs out of health. Note: If you shoot Adam, he will block your shot with his chainsaws.

Defeating Brock
As soon as you get within range of Brock, the final Boss of Overtime mode, start doing knee drop attacks. He will block most of them. However, even the blocked attacks will damage him slightly. If you do the knee drops in fast succession, Brock will have a difficult time doing any attacks of his own.

Jump down to the front of the tank; he will follow you. As soon as he jumps down, perform the “Knee Drop” on him, if you have unlocked this skill. Then, jump back up to the top of the tank. Wait for him to jump back up and repeat. He will most likely not be able to block it, and in three to five hits he will be dead.

Defeating Carlito
Find a Queen Wasp. Look for the zombies that are either holding their head or looking at there arms slightly above their heads. Then, get the katana from outside the first window on the back wall of the Colombian Roastmasters. Use the Wasp to kill most of the zombies. The best place to get them is to run for the middle. You might get shot once or twice, but if you have the queen ready this is less likely. He will hit you with a shot from the rifle. Run as fast as possible upstairs. Brad will get hurt a few times; just make sure he does not die. Run to Carlito and slice him with the katana. Be careful — he tosses grenades as he is running and will hit you with the rifle after you hit him once. This also works with the hammer, but it is slow and he will hit you before you can hit him.

When fighting Carlito the second time with Brad in Entrance Plaza, it can be quite difficult. The best sniping position to kill him from is in the pink shop directly above the escalators where you first come in. There is a table with some signs on it. Position yourself between the little signs and shoot him with the rifle. Carlito may also turn his back to see where you are shooting him from.

When fighting Carlito the second time in Entrance Plaza, have at least four equipment slots, five health bars, and three smoothies. Quickness is the best just for speed. Once you start the mission, instead of going upstairs run down the hall under the right side of the second floor. Try to avoid the zombies, but do not drink any smoothies. When you are down the hall, there will be a store on the right. It is a outdoors store. Go in and get the mountain bike then ride upstairs. Get on the side where Carlito is located. Once there, ride as fast as you can toward Carlito and hit him. He may get one or two shots off at you, but do not worry. Go to where he cannot see you and drink a smoothie. Be quick because he will kill Brad if you are not fast enough. If you run into Carlito well, it may require only three or four hits to kill him.

To easily defeat Carlito the second time when he has a sniper rifle, begin by running up the stairs. As soon as you get up, turn left. Keep moving to avoid his shots. Try to stay out of his sight. At the “corner” on the second level near Carlito is a sporting goods store. Go inside and grab a hockey stick or two. Leave the store and quickly run across to the pillar. Stand almost even with the pillar so that Carlito cannot see you at all, but will keep shooting at you, only to hit the pillar. Hold R2 to aim with the hockey stick. The end of the stick (and therefore the puck) should be sticking out past the pillar while your body is still fully protected behind the pillar. If not, reposition yourself until you can shoot pucks at him. Once set, start slapping away until he “dies” and the intermission sequence starts. Be careful not to also hit Brad.

The third time you fight Carlito is when collecting the bombs in Case 7-2. To kill him easily, unlock the Real Mega Buster and shoot him about three times when he appears. Additionally, if you want to have a safer trip during the mission, instead of entering the tunnels through the parking lot with the motorcycle, get the maintenance key before the case and enter through Paradise Plaza. There will be a white sedan that will not break down as easily as the motorcycle.
