Very easy money (400k every few seconds)
 
If you use the cloning trick seen in StumpferOtti thread (http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...d.php?t=261666) you can clone the bargaining book so that you have 11 or 12 and then when you buy and SUV key you get 400,000 with 12 books and 200,000 with 11 books.

Say wha?


If you get 10 x 10% barganing books wont everything be free? And how do u make the 400k i dont understand

mjc0961 10-03-2010 07:22 PM

Are you trying to say that having more than ten books makes the shop pay you money and give you the key? 10% of the 2 million - 200,000, and you're saying 11 books (110% discount) gives you $200,000 and 12 (120% discount) gives you $400,000. So the only way I can make sense of this is if they paid you money.

How exactly does this work?

dannynu13 10-03-2010 07:38 PM

The logic is that if you have 12 it would be 120% off which means its free and because of the extra 20% it gives you 20% of the cost of what you "Buy"

Edit: what mjc0961 said is a better explanation.

So is this instruction correct?

1. invite a friend (your friend needs to have the bargain magazine in his inventory)

2. when your friend is in the game, let him drop the bargain magazine and pick it up for yourself.

3. now your friend needs to leave the game.

4. invite your friend again and take his bargain magazine.

5. repeat this until your inventory is full with bargain magazines

6. "Purchase" SUV key but instead of paying money you get money for it (does it work infinitely?)

MeowZaK 10-03-2010 07:42 PM

And how do you make money from this?

Also the friend has to be in his/her game before he/she joins you.

Hawaiian 10-03-2010 07:46 PM

is there a way to do this offline? or do you really need a coop player? and can you give some info about save game? when the other player quits and rejoins does he always use the same save? and if player A has already 5 mags could he drop all five and player B can pick them all up and then player A quits and reloads save+joins with his 5 mag save and can let all of them drop again?

this is a great glitch. only problem: it probably can only be done online so if capcom decides to patch it it's no longer possible.

Hawaiian 10-03-2010 07:52 PM

Another question: How many bargain books are there in DR2 and can you buy multiple SUV keys -> infinite? and does this also apply for Zombrex, etc -> infinite weapons and zombrex?

I'm pretty sure it can only be online but I have never tried doing it offline. If player A has 5 and joins then drops, leaves and re-joins then drops them again then player B could possibly have 10.

There are 2 Bargain Books from what i know and yes you can buy infinite of an item (I got 150,000,000 in a very short amount of time buying only SUV keys)

Confussed lol

JrdRIOT 10-03-2010 08:02 PM

I got 250M this way in like 30 mins.

Hawaiian 10-03-2010 08:09 PM

@dannynu13 thanks for the info. i could only image this offline way: collect bargain book and save game. then quit and reload save -> bargain book is still in your inventory and perhaps there's another bargain book where you originally picked it up? this works at least for weapons and every other item in the game.

and something else came to my mind: this trick should apply to all magazines. so for example the mag that makes drinks last twice as long -> drinks last for hours. or something bad: psycho mag or s.th. like that that increases the PP bonus for doing certain things -> extremely high pp amounts -> leaderboards are screwed up.

Hawaiian 10-03-2010 08:13 PM

@JrdRIOTa + dannynu13
so you currently have your whole inventory full of bargain mags? can you save this on another slot and keep that save? because this might speed things up a lot. if you join for example my game and let all mags drop i have immediately everything i need for the glitch. currently it won't work because i only have 6 save slots but if i have 12 slots it would be great if you could help me / us then.

If you get lots of combat magazines you can get pp quickly, also iv'e read that some magazines don't double/triple when cloned, they just stay the same.

Ah, I see. Thanks, I figured that could be the only way. Nobody tell Capcom about this, shhh! :p

The bargain magazine subtracts 10% of the price from everything in the pawn shop. SUV key costs $2,000,000 normally, so with each magazine giving you 10% off it's going like this.

0 magazines: $2,000,000 for key
1 magazine: $1,800,000 for key
2 magazines: $1,600,000 for key
3 magazines: $1,400,000 for key
4 magazines: $1,200,000 for key
5 magazines: $1,000,000 for key
6 magazines: $800,000 for key
7 magazines: $600,000 for key
8 magazines: $400,000 for key
9 magazines: $200,000 for key
10 magazines: $0 for key
11 magazines: -$200,000 for key
12 magazines: -$400,000 for key

For all the positive values you're still paying the shop, but when you pay negative money for the key, you're actually gaining money. In math when you subtract a negative number from something, you're actually adding it. So for example, 12 minus -4 is 16, and your current money minus -$200,000 is whatever your money was plus $200,000.

Then how exactly does this get you money?

mjc0961 10-03-2010 09:08 PM

Did... Did you actually read my post or did you just quote it? I explained it as simply as I possibly can. Subtracting a negative number from something is actually adding. So when it goes to subtract the negative price of the key from your current money, it ends up adding money.

Read the thread again...

You need 10 magazines to get the 2million SUV key for free since 10%x10 =100%.

Now if you have 11 magazines, you get PAID each time you buy the SUV keys. 11 magazines gives you 200k each time and 12 gives you 400k.

Now that wasnt so hard was it?

MeowZaK 10-03-2010 09:16 PM

Maybe if someone explained it that way in the first place then I wouldn't have to comment would I?

Outbreaker XXXX 10-03-2010 10:06 PM

Awesome except i have 3.5million and i've already spent 6million, awesome find though ^_^ anyone tried this with the psycho book to gain massive PP?

BlackDragon 10-03-2010 10:34 PM

Do copied 'durability' books stack too? 'cuz the Zombie Genocide Expert achievement would be somewhat easier to get if you could make the SUV and/or bike nigh-indestructible with 5 stacked '3X Durability' books...

StumpferOtti 10-03-2010 10:46 PM

Hi to all! looks like this is way to complicated to some people BUT trust 'dannynu13' it works. But you need at least 11 books... better would be 12, hope i get it right.

This is by far the best/fastest way to get money.

smarty3721 10-03-2010 11:01 PM

Hi i dont have any friends who play this so if anyone would be willing to join my game and drop books for me i would be very grateful and would gladly help you out with anything you need including this
