walkthrough: all combo weapons
 
THIS WAS CREATED FOR THE X360A COMMUNITY. IF YOU WANT TO USE THIS WALKTHROUGH ON ANY OTHER SITE THAN X360A SEND ME A MESSAGE OR REPLY TO THIS THREAD.

if you follow this walkthrough, you will obtain the following achievements along the way:

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...9/UP86bTI=.jpgDuct Tape FTW 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Create all combo weapons.

and the secret achievement

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/i...nts/969/s1.jpgTape it Or DIE! 20http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/site/gp-g.png Discovered The Secret Combo Card. Did You Cheat By Checking Online?

this walkthrough is intended for people who want a way to built all combo weapons consecutively. it is possible to do this with a level one character but obviously it is easier and faster to do with a leveled up character. i would advise you to pick up every weapon i list here although you might have gotten quite a few weapons before. this will ensure that you don't get lost along the way or miss any items. you might want to start a completely new playthrough or at least make sure you have enough time left to actually complete this in one playthrough. the achievement does not have to be done in one playthrough but it makes it easier to not lose focus.

upon completing every combo weapon you will get a scratch card. these are NOT the combo cards you will need for the "half deck" and "full deck" achievements. the only two exceptions are the spiked bat and the wingman. you will earn the combo cards for these two weapons.

against contrary believe, you will not have to have access to the underground lab to earn "duct tape ftw" but you will have to have succesfully finished case 2-2 to get general access to the underground (the keys for the underground do NOT carry over from a previous walkthrough). even though you are not at the safe house after completing that case, i will start my walkthrough at the safe house to avoid any mix ups or confusion.

while attempting this walkthrough, we will only be getting 4 to 5 weapons at a time. that is because i don't want people with only few inventory slots to miss out on anything. this way it will take a longer time to finish the walkthrough but people will not have to level up before getting the achievement.

items to build the combo weapons will be color coded red.
actual combo weapons will have a counter in front and will be color coded purple.

i will start this walkthrough in the safe house, where you start the game.

(this has been tested on several profiles. all necessary items for the achievement are listed. if you don't unlock the achievement you might consider doing this again on another playthrough as all collecting achievements for dr2 have proven dodgy on one end or the other.)

DerEnglaender 10-02-2010 06:33 PM

fucking yes. great job mate.

JCreazy 10-02-2010 06:34 PM

I have been waiting for one of these. Thanks!

mjc0961 10-03-2010 04:11 AM

Why do you have to clear case 2-2 first? Just curious.

hoernchen 10-03-2010 08:25 AM

you have to clear the case to get access to the underground. will edit and make that clear in the guide.

GreddyGamer 10-03-2010 09:56 AM

hi i was wondering i did all this and it did not unlock does combining the chainsaw with the dirtbike have to be done to get this? and also do i have to have the combo cards unlocked first before i make them i have all 50 cards but 3 are scratch cards? please let me know...............



NVM i just got the achievo it popped after i did the traning sword and nails i thought i did that one woops well that was annoying spending 2 hours going over everyone but thanks a MILLION much help

grizlynator 10-03-2010 10:09 AM

thx for this great help

what did not unlock? this is only for the "duct tape ftw" achievement, the "half deck" and "full deck" achievements have nothing to do with this.

if you are talking about "duct tape ftw" i can only imagine that you did either create something twice and left out one or two other combo weapons or that you died somewhere or powered down your xbox without saving. progress you made will be lost if you die. you will have to redo everything from your last save onwards.

also this is only about combo weapons, any possible motorbike/weapon combinations do not count towards the achievement.

furthermore you can unlock this achievement at any time. you will not need to have gained the combo cards beforehand. which isn't even possible by the way because you only get the combo cards for the spiked bat and wingman after creating the weapons...

EDIT: just saw your edit. glad everything worked out. will leave this piece up, if somebody else runs into similar problems...

Yes thanks.

Zaxex 10-04-2010 12:34 AM

Perfect guide. Was hoping someone would give directions, doing this randomly would've taken a lot, lot longer. Thanks!

Edit: Oh, and I got this before getting the last two(?) combo cards from the Tape It or Die guys. Managed to get this achievement while killing every survivor and psychopath; food and weapon storage (at Level 50) was never a problem and everyone showed up like they were meant to; so it's a valid idea to do this at the same time as something else; might save some time overall, combining weapons during mission lulls.

AkaDad555 10-04-2010 02:46 AM

Thanks for all your guides. They've been very helpful.

HoRneDieSeL 10-04-2010 10:00 PM

Excellent job! Looks like I'll be getting +20 shortly!

mjc0961 10-05-2010 01:36 AM

Another quality guide, thanks man. :)

SevenFisher 10-07-2010 11:07 PM

Sorry, but I figured this'd be best topic to ask about this...

I've created all combo weapons (or at least, I am pretty sure I have on all of these) over 3 or so playthroughs however I don't unlock the achievement. Do I need to do it in one playthrough?

Great guide though - I'll attempt this tomorrow if I don't get the achievement.

Sigmund666 10-08-2010 01:44 PM

A quick question. I have all of the scratch/combo-cards (except those of the 4 survivors in the sports store (they will give you 2 combo-cards) . I imported my Case Zero savegame, where I had all of the weapon combos found (electric rake, paddle saw, beerhat and such). For DR2, do you have to make them again? :)

Thanks in advance!

AbracadaverAK 10-08-2010 02:53 PM

These do have to be made in one playthrough, yes.

JeppeBoy 10-09-2010 06:30 PM

Nice guide! I'll go for this achievement pretty soon!

PillsOfDeath 10-09-2010 06:42 PM

Thank you for this guide.

DunhamSmash 10-10-2010 11:40 AM

Excellent guide, well done.

SSJ3 10-10-2010 12:10 PM

How long would this take in game time?

Dad_Is_A_Zombie 10-10-2010 01:52 PM

Great guide, thanks!

No. I'm on my 4th run and I've only build the few I've haven't done yet like the Tesla Ball and the achievment just unlocked.

Make sure to save everytime and don't forget that some of these weapons can be found or taken from survivors and don't count as being built.

@ hoernchen - great guides, thanks a lot.

AgEnT STARZz 10-12-2010 02:29 PM

Great guide! Helped me get it quite quickly! Thanks

Rajii 10-12-2010 04:11 PM

Thanks, I couldn't find that Dam bull skull

Munkapotatoes 10-13-2010 09:52 PM

Wingman isn't required for Duct tape FTW. It's only required for the secret chievo (just tested by saving wingman for last. FTW popped once i did all the others. Making wingman gave me Tape it or die).

Dante k foxx 10-15-2010 01:44 AM

after making all these items at least twice in single player i followerd your guide and my cheevo popped and # 39 the gernade football..... which i know for a fact i have made at least 5 times oh well thanks. now for the melee cheevo for the 3rd time

OMGLOL1111 10-16-2010 06:35 PM
