Post 8 Survivors/Come on! Follow me! Guide

Hi there,

I wrote this in reponse to a thread on here but feel it is a much easier method not requiring any luck to have Janus spawn at the right time or having to beat the three people at cards. I have explained everything in more detail and only aim to help.

If you have any questions or comments please ask and I will be happy to help.

Dead Rising 2 Come On! Follow Me! Guide


Very easy to just do at the start off the game. I would suggest being at least level 20+ for health and attack benefits.

Step 1 Preparation, Elimination and Tiger Salvation:


After rescuing Denyce and before you give Katey her first Zombrex shot you should have the best part of 3 hours spare. We will need to utilise these precious few hours. First thing we want to do is grab the Fireaxe from the safe room
leave and just after the first Maintenance room collect the Sledgehammer. Combine these for an awesome weapon capable of doing Ted over in a short time. We will be travlling through the Slot Ranch casino than to the Food Court to the Yutacan Casino (Y.C) which really isn't far. Just read blow as we will grab a few things along the way

Just as a note in the Slot Ranch casino you will go past the Stage with the Stature of Liberty hands on them, go back stage and around to the right, climb the boxes to the right of the maintenance room and follow them around for a quick easy free Zombrex shot.

As soon as you enter the Food Court look left and go into the Wild West restaurant. When in the W.W.R enter the kitchen and grab the two steaks on the counter. Now continue on your way to the Y.C grabbing any food you want on the way.

Enter the Y.C and a few steps in you will get a cut scene. After this kill Ted as quickly as possible (there is a machine gun on top of the Aztec statue thing if you want extra help)

Ted is a really easy psycho and you should be fine. Just watch out for Snowflake. Tame snowflake by throwing steaks at her just before she charges or leaving them on the floor and dodging her attacks. She will need to eat 3 steaks before she chills unless you hit her at all which means she will need a few more to fill her hp and tame her. You should have two already and to get three more (I said to get the extra two in the W.W.R as it just makes it easier) check the rocks to the left inside Snowflakes glass stage where the game places you after the initial cutscene of Ted and Snowflake.

Step 2:


Once tamed (achievement too if you have not already got it) return to the safe room with Snowflake and make sure you examine Snowflake in the room with Katey for an easy PP boost and an achievement for giving Katey a gift if you have not already done so.

Wait around/heal/save/make a weapon until the Katey needs the Zombrex. Give it to her and start first real mission.

Step 3 Lashawndra and Gordan:

Leave the safe room and open the doors to the mall. In front of you you will see Lashawndra, talk to her than collect her bf Gordan in the nearby shop on the right of her.

Step 4 - 2 Survivors with you and collcting Esther:

You will now have L and G following you. Stacey should have text you about Esther the confused old lady in the toy shop. Waypoint and get her. Esther requires you to Carry her but tbh it makes zombie dodgin all the more easier. The Zombies don't seem to grab you as much with a survivor in your arms.

Step 5 - 3 Survivors with you and collecting Chad and Doris:

After Esther is yours take your survivors down the Silver Strip where you should see Chad (shotgun wielding old guy). Ignore him initially and head to the 'Lost' text message waypoint. Talk to Doris and than go back and talk to Chad. Chad will follow you and is your key to Doris joining. Once they have joined make your way back into the Yutacana Casino.

Step 6 - 5 Survivors with you and collcting Lenny:

Once in the Y.C head to the back and into the office (door with EMPLOYEES ONLY on it) and talk to Lenny. Lenny joins because you got rid of Snowflake. Whilst back in the Y.C climb up the aztec statue thing where the LMG is and now spawned is another Zombrex. This Zombrex doesn't spawn during the Ted fight for some reason. So now you have 2 extra doses within the first 12 hours - nice!

Step 7 - 6 Survivors with you and collecting Jack and Kenneth:

Leave the Y.C from where you entered having now recieved the 'Welcome to the family' text. At this point I personally did not have this so instead I went ahead and did the missions 1-1,1-2 and 1-3. The survivors will not go through anything hazardous so don't worry. After I finished mission 1-3 I got the Welcome to the family text.

I entered the area Jack and Kenneth are in and faced the door and set a way point on it so I didn't have to drag the crew through the mall just go back on myself. Jack is great too as he has the Knights helmet which you can gain off him during the Ante Up! call a.k.a strip poker.

Anyways speak to Jack at the back and after a short conversation you should have them join. Bang achievement unlocked in the easiest manner which doesn't require you to give any items to anyone, sets you up in the best possible starting position and gives massive PP. Also case 1-4 finishes with you in the safe room so you can start Case 2 with a perfectly clean slate ready for any achievements you want in the rest of the playthrough.

In short:

Collct Steaks from W.W.R And go to Y.C.

Kill Ted and Tame Snowflake.

Go to the safe room and give Katey the Zombrex.

Collect Lashawndra and Gordan in front of you as you leave safe room.

Collect Esther - Should have call by now, grab her.

Then collect Doris and Chad (Lost radio text) on your way to collecting Lenny in the office of Yucutan casino (only available after taming/killing Snowflake)

Get Lenny

Then you can either do the case 1-1.1-2.1-3 which I did as I was unnecessarily worried bout time on it. Or wait until you get the call for Welcome to the Family.

Collect Kenneth and Jack and pop goes the achievement.

I hope everyone finds this helpful and please any feedback would be kind. If you have questions I will be happy to answer.

Thank you

Thumbs up

Just tried it and it worked like a charm! Kudos!

Just one thing, for me the Welcome to the family-call initially didn't came up!
Reason: at the same time as i was rounding up my first six survivors the call for the luscious lady in the Americana casino came up.

I had to kill her before the message for Jack and Kenneth showed up.
(Or, if I think about it know, I could have taken her with me to the save house. Whilst leaving the other six in another corner waiting, and after that move on with the other 6 to Jack and Kenneth.)

So it might be handy to put it into your guide!

Tried this, but it wouldn't give me the "Welcome to the family" scoop... So I was stuck with 6 people. Tried to get that woman, Kirsten I think, in the casino security room (the drunk one) hoping on another survivor to show up somewhere. I started running to the safe house leaving the 7 survivors outside, to make it intime for the end of the case (1-4). So figuring I wouldn't get the scoop with 7 people on me already, I dropped Kirsten off at the safe house. Still nothing happened, so I just ran outside with the whole crew of 6 survivors still behind me! I didn't trigger the bike psycho tho

Outside, after visiting the shop from the scoop (can't remember the name for it), I finaly got my "Welcome to the family" message! I was quite happy at that moment

So in the end your guide helped me alot, I got 2 achievements thanks to it, 3 if you count the stick 'em up one!

Thanks alot, great guide!


Edit:
Haha, Iede Klaas mentioned the same thing, I pressed the reply button an hour ago orsomething.

Thanks for the positive feedback and suggestions guys.

If anyone is concerned about this a possible alternate route would be to take Lenny back with Snowflake after you have tamed her. Than instead of losing Lucious lady you could get her.

Also if anyone is worried about the 50 survivor achievement and Lucious Lady is around, kill her as you found the extra survivors Lenny and the Snowflake already. Meaning that if you are diligent and collect every survivor and give or take a few extras you will get it.

I was unlucky enough to miss it by 2 on my first playthrough! It's nowhere near as hard as the first game. Anyways thanks guys. glad I could help.

I don't understand what I've done wrong.

I saved that first survivor, then tiger. Returned them back to safe room.
Went ahead and get couple that's outside Safe room - then Instead of old lady call, I get Lost... call so I went and get both. I get Old Lady call, then went and carried her. Got Lenny, then that's six.

Then it's where I'm stuck. I tried kill her, but I kept getting boss scoops (which Iv'e took care of as well survivor) and when I sort them out so its down to six again, I still HAVEN'T GOTTEN ANY SCOOPS.

I don't know what I'm doing wrong :/

Hi Seven, I have no idea but one maybe that you are in the mall in which Kenneth and jack spawn? Try hanging around outside. I hope it works out if not may e restate? I know it's a pain but alas things never rub smoothly on dead rising but that's also what makes it the crazy fun game it is.

Let me know how it goes and if I can help further

I wasn't at mall at time, so that's probably not it. I'll admit I do have fun figuring it out when trying to kill zombies but at same time I just want this achievement out of way :P It's odd as I can seem only get scoops I wanted to get up to seven survivors, not eight.

At least it's giving me tons of PP everytime I re-start story, so that's not big loss. (At Lv41)

If you are confident mate I would suggest continuing with your 6 if possible forget the cases etc and just hunt for 2 more survivors!

Good luck and I hope you get it!

This game is pretty odd. I swear I knew that scoop will have one survivor, but unless I kill one of my survivors (which is 7th wise) or drop off those you could carry - then scoop becomes available if it's not too late.

Meaning I can't get 8th. Is it just luck/patience thing, or do I have to get something? I felt like I've hit the limit most of time...

I tried out the original method and it didnt seem to work for me either. I wouldnt get the call for "Welcome to the family" the Father and Son in law at the mall.

What I did, I followed the guide until I was supposed to get the call for "Welcome to the family" it didnt come, so I took back the 6 I had with me (Lashawndra, Gordon, Esther, Chad, Doris and Lenny) upon leaving the safe room, I got the call I'd been waiting for, I also got a call for 2 employees robbing the Americana casino. I went and picked up the father and son-in-law, then went to get the 2 employees, so I had 4. Then I got a call telling me that there were 4 nerds playing board games in the south plaza, went there picked them up, got the achievement.

The original way sounds good but it seems to be hit or miss if you get the welcome to the family call or not, this way I found worked quite well as you only have 4 idiots following you for a short while and you dont have to carry any of them. I'd better add also, you have to either kill Kristen, the "Luscious lady" or take her back with your original 6, means a bit of back and forth carrying her and Esther but it's doable.

Anyway, just thought I would post, hopefully it can help someone

I have a theory about this. Rebecca. Perhaps the game counts her as one of the maximum of 8 survivors. I had 6 with me, and it was well past the time that I should have got the Welcome to the Family message. I started to kill Esther to test it, lo and behold, the instant she defected I got the message. Which means the game didn't want to give me the message because it would mean there were more than 8 alive, with Rebecca being the only possible candidate.

1pm, no Workers Compensation. I'll try finishing Rebecca's mission.


Edit: Did the mission, and got the call for Kristin. That would've put me on 7, so I killed her. Went to Royal Flush Plaza, still no Workers Compensation. Killed LaShawndra, which made Gordon defect (leaving me with 4), and only then did I get Workers Compensation. Definitely seems like this is bugged.

Just to expand on this theory, perhaps there is a 'survivor' that isn't a survivor taking up a spot in the que. Snowflake would take up a spot from the time the mission can be triggered regardless of whether you trigger the fight or tame her.
There's also a bunch of survivors who die in scripted events (Meet the Contestants starts with the death of a survivor). As far as the game is concerned they're exactly the same as any other survivors, so if Capcom didn't think to add a 'cant rescue' flag to them and take it into account then they should still appear in the que until you either save them (impossible) or they die.

Thanks for the comments guys.

I believe XF is right. Perhaps anyone out there can see and confirm in future. Let's say you do case 1-1, 1-2 and 1-3 with Rebecca possibly even getting Lucious Lady beforehand.

Maybe that can count as 8? If not than Rebecca may stall the Welcome to The Family call by being with you or on the map?

Either way I hope my method helps in some form and may just need adapting to those who get the different route. I will rewrite the guide to suit the possibility when I can confirm the facts.

Thanks

Tried a couple of times, Welcome to the family never turns up. Did you trigger the battle with Leon so he kills his hostage? Or do One Man's trash?

I picked up 7 and have waited till day 3 for a case with a single survivor. The only thing I've gotten is the Slappy one, who has no hostages anyway.

Very strange, no I even walked around the area so I didn't trigger the Leon fight. Dead Risings mysterious ways I guess.

Wait around/heal/save/make a weapon until the Katey needs the Zombrex. Give it to her and start first real mission.

Step 3 Lashawndra and Gordan:

Leave the safe room and open the doors to the mall. In front of you you will see Lashawndra, talk to her than collect her bf Gordan in the nearby shop on the right of her.

Step 4 - 2 Survivors with you and collcting Esther:

You will now have L and G following you. Stacey should have text you about Esther the confused old lady in the toy shop. Waypoint and get her. Esther requires you to Carry her but tbh it makes zombie dodgin all the more easier. The Zombies don't seem to grab you as much with a survivor in your arms.

Step 5 - 3 Survivors with you and collecting Chad and Doris:

After Esther is yours take your survivors down the Silver Strip where you should see Chad (shotgun wielding old guy). Ignore him initially and head to the 'Lost' text message waypoint. Talk to Doris and than go back and talk to Chad. Chad will follow you and is your key to Doris joining. Once they have joined make your way back into the Yutacana Casino.

Step 6 - 5 Survivors with you and collcting Lenny:

Once in the Y.C head to the back and into the office (door with EMPLOYEES ONLY on it) and talk to Lenny. Lenny joins because you got rid of Snowflake. Whilst back in the Y.C climb up the aztec statue thing where the LMG is and now spawned is another Zombrex. This Zombrex doesn't spawn during the Ted fight for some reason. So now you have 2 extra doses within the first 12 hours - nice!

Step 7 - 6 Survivors with you and collecting Jack and Kenneth:

Leave the Y.C from where you entered having now recieved the 'Welcome to the family' text. At this point I personally did not have this so instead I went ahead and did the missions 1-1,1-2 and 1-3. The survivors will not go through anything hazardous so don't worry. After I finished mission 1-3 I got the Welcome to the family text.

I entered the area Jack and Kenneth are in and faced the door and set a way point on it so I didn't have to drag the crew through the mall just go back on myself. Jack is great too as he has the Knights helmet which you can gain off him during the Ante Up! call a.k.a strip poker.

Anyways speak to Jack at the back and after a short conversation you should have them join. Bang achievement unlocked in the easiest manner which doesn't require you to give any items to anyone, sets you up in the best possible starting position and gives massive PP. Also case 1-4 finishes with you in the safe room so you can start Case 2 with a perfectly clean slate ready for any achievements you want in the rest of the playthrough.

i did this but slightly different

saved denyce then went to snowflake then headed back to katey but
only took snowflake in (lt + Y at the back wall and snowflake should get the door icon any way)

then got the next 2 then got the call for chad and doris putting me at 5

while getting doris and chad got the call for esther went to get her then went to larry

now at 7 i went to rebbeca and she gave me the achieve (glad she counts)

allso to help i gave them weapons

they accept hand guns found them on the cops

Maybe it's easier if you just let Katie die? Even though I don't like that idea... :P I'm going to give it a try if I can't nail this one right with EviL Bettee's way. I just need to kill boss first, and see if I get 4 geeks one.

EDIT: As in, it won't trigger any story cases (since you failed to cure Katie) so meaning no slots taken up by story survivors?

Great guide dude!

Worked perfectly, however i did a few things extra. I escorted Doris and Chad before going for Esther.

And once i had 6, the "Welcome to the Family" wasn't coming through so instead i went and completed "One's Man Trash" and after i did that the message came through.


I even escorted them all 2 which got me the 10 survivors saved

So once again thanks

He doesn't give up the maintenance key after rescuing Denyce. Don't you have to bring one more survivor back to get the key? Think I got the key after I rescued Lashawndra and Gordan on my first play.

I'm starting my 2nd play through and thought I would give this cheivo a shot.

Edit: Yup, didn't get the key until I brought back snowflake.

Got the chievo 1st try. Collected them in this order..
Lashawndra, Gordan, Chad (exchange his shotgun for a handgun or melee), Doris, Jack, Kenneth, Esther and Rebecca. Lil diff then the guide but worked out fine just the same.

Wish I had picked up Lenny like you advised. Would have then saved the whole bunch before I went to meet Rebecca and not had them follow me around any more.

I didn't even try for this, was really easy in this game because the AI actually works.. lol

I did this: Around 9:00pmish Sept 27th in Slot Ranch
(Didnt have the mission i just stumbled into the area never had the call lol)

Bibi (Psychopath) - "One Hit Wonder" Turned Good + her 3 hostages Alison
Cameron (Must offer shoulder, Good though you wont get hit really EVER) and Juan

Then took them to Hot Excitorama for 11:00Pm "Two's Company" grabbed
Walter and Royce

Dumped them in the maintenance area between Atlantica Casino and The hotel till 2:00 am. Got mission "Family Feud"

(this is the annoying part but its easy and didn't slow anything down)

Run to The F.C. Hotel with everyone take the elevator up talk to Lillian she tells you to go get Camille first. so now leave with everyone to Atlantica Casino.

Right inside park your ppl at the door grab Camille she's right there. head back to the roof at F.C.H grab Lillian.

Achievement unlocked!

Continue to save them or not up to you

Not a big point, but you don't have to find steaks in the Yutucan Casino. There are 3 steaks in the Wild West Kitchen. The two on the counter like you said and there is a third in the middle of the floor leaning against a frying pan.

Other than that, great guide, I did it a similiar way.

If, like me, you screwed up and didn't get Lenny or just didn't worry about this achievement until later in the game, you can get it with this method too! Bear in mind this is harder then the method listed in the OP. That is by FAR the easiest method. This is simply an alternate method. The reason why this method is a lot harder is because of those snipers that show up at this time, and you have to go out of your way to kill them to make this painless.

First :: Case - One Hit Wonder :: Save Bibi and her THREE Survivor friends. This brings you to four survivors. Save at the restroom by her stage and make a dash for the entrance to the Strip via Royal Flush plaza or the front door of the Casino you're in.

Second :: The comedians in the strip that make you listen to their jokes make two more, for a total of 6. Head to the Atlantica.

Third :: Head thru Atlantica Casino and grab mermaid lady. She is #7.

Fourth :: Enter Palisades Mall via Atlantica Casino. Shut survivors you have in the maintainance room immediately to your left. Drop mermaid lady there too. Go rescue the emo kid (the one with the shotgun) from the Palisades Mall. He is #8! ACHIEVEMENT UNLOCKED!

Final Steps :: Look, you're conveniently in the same place as the shortcut to Royal Flush Plaza. Take it to Royal Flush Plaza and turn them in. If you don't have the shortcut, bring them back via Atlantica Casino, to the Strip, to the Royal Flush. Or just kill them all. You unlock it as soon as you have 8 people in your party, rescued or not.

Hey here's something you may want to add...

While you are doing the case files and helping Rebecca, she takes you to the arena security room. In this room, there is a magazine called, "rescue" that gives you 25% more PP for survivors. Adds a nice boost on top of the PP you receive for saving everyone.

That's actually an AMAZING tip. I carried that magazine from picking it up to finish and never thought about it in retrospect, if you carry that book you will be VERY happy you did.

By the end of my playthru I was at lvl 40 due to that and the 25% Psycho PP bonus book.

I think doing the case files you mentioned are very important, I didnt do them and ended up not getting the Welcome to the Family side mission, also didnt get the other one.

Also, you shouldn't save Vikki from Brandon, I tried this to see if I could get any clear slots for survivors but since Psychos count and the contestants side mission should still be there, you wont get another mission pop up, unless you kill some members of your team, or kill the contestant, which is harder with survivors with you as he aims for them instead of you.

I'll be trying this tomorrow or later again, this time doing the case files, although Im confused, people say Rebecca counts as a survivor so does that mean I have to kill her off to get this side mission to appear?

EDIT: I just retried, took an even easier route than the OP did, this way is glitch proof (eg. you do not need to worry about the Welcome to the Family not popping up).

1. Get Denyce - DO NOT save her yet.
2. Kill Ted and Snowflake, Denyce should be able to take it, heal her afterwards if needed.
3. Get Lenny.
4. Go to Safe house, making sure NONE of the survivors have the door icon over their heads when you enter, also make sure its 7am, or near 7am, you dont want to be going in too soon and them dying because you left them out too long, give Katey her zombrex.
5. Get the couple that are in the mall when you exit, one is straight in front of you, when other is in shop to your right.
6. Message "Lost" will pop up, go get Chad and his girl, talk to Chad first as the girl won't follow you until she sees him.
7. Message "Shortsighted" should pop up now, go get the old lady, carry her.
8. Now do the story cases 1-2 (once you talk to Rebecca in this one, the achievement will pop), then case 1-3, then case 1-4 as that lands you back to the safe house where you should be headed for the survivor PP points.
