Just attempted this now. I managed to get Welcome To The Family to pop up straight away by unlocking the Pawnshops straight after I picked up Lenny (Number 6) from Yucatan.

I sugest trying that, then back tracking from there to Palisades to get the last two. This is all before going to see Rebecca at the Hotel.

haven't done this yet and also didn't read every post to see if some1 mentioned, but you can do this easy without doing the tiger to get lenny. Just replace lenny with the two people destroying slot machines in the american casino. You may have to wait a few minutes for them to show up(It should take just under the right amount of time to get the rest of the survivors). I only missed this cheevo cuz the message about the casino goers popped right after i rescued all the others(damn my impatience =P).

I don't know if it was just coincidence (perhaps it was just the right time for the call about that case), but this worked for me as well. I had already finished 1-3 though, so I ran to the pawn shop at Platinum Strip, and as soon as the "ding dong" sound of me walking out finished, I got the call for Welcome to the Family.

Maybe that robber standing at the gate to the pawn shop counts as a survivor or something?

EDIT: Okay, well I can say that the dude that dies in the cutscene for Meet the Contestants isn't being counted as a survivor against the max of 8. I'm on my way back to the safe house with 8 people now and I just got the message for Meet the Contestants.

id like to start by saying, great guide, its much appreciated... but id like to make a suggestion that will help with PP earned for all these survivors, and why not take advantage of it...

there are some mags that i think might be assessable, and very useful to use during the venture for this achievement:

Leadership - Survivors are much more effective in Chuck's party.
(\/can be found here\/)
Silver Strip
One Little Duck Bingo. N102 - Entertainment

Rescue - Get 25% PP boost from survivor activities.
(\/can be found here\/)
Fortune City Arena

First Floor
Security Room


full magazine locations here: http://www.xbox360achievements.org/f...light=magazine

Just to help elaborate on the Leadership magazine, any survivor who would otherwise need to be carried or helped to walk, will walk on their own. Examples include Esther, Rebecca after you save her from the military, and the guy from the Shell Shocked mission.

Wish i had noticed this, would have saved me 20 minutes looking for lenny who wasn't showing up... Long story short, I ended up getting this with Rebecca as my 8th. so for any1 who hasn't noticed REBECCA COUNTS.

tried the top method with someone else twice didn't get welcome to the family pop up, we also had ester bug out when we went into the security room while the other person was holding her, she teleported back to her start location.

not entirely sure what we did wrong, but im annoyed we failed to get it, only thing i can think of is a time element maybe did the rebecca thing too early and since she was up they didn't spawn.

a later go we went for the 4 nerds the 2 casino junkies and that was it no other spawns happened i was expecting the 2 in the arena to show but that didn't happen. it hates me i understand that now

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.
im gonna try this method now, the other was giving me a headache with cases not spawning. im laos going ot try and see wether or not you can initially avoid denyce and first do ted/snowflake

edit: worked flawlessly. like i said i went and did snowflake/ted first, brought back lenny with me, saved denyce and returned to the safe room with only snowflake (who ALWAYS is rescued when you enter the safe room, even if hes on hte other side of the mall). then did the black couple/ the "lost" quest and esther totalling 7 people, talked to rebecca in 2-1 and it popped. loads of time spare at every bit.

do we know what the max. amount of time a survivor will wait if you tell them too? is it safe to leave them somewhere safe and come back and get them later? if that is the case you can just keep stacking people outside of the entrance to the safehouse (behind two sets of doors that you can close) and then pick them all back up and enter...

Alright guys I just got this. And let me explain how I did it. Most of it I used from the startpost but there are a few issues with that guide.

1.
I saved Denyce, got the Zombrex, killed Ted, tamed Snowflake and then gave Katey Zombrex. Your game gets saved.
2.
I grabbed LaShawndra and Gordon.
3.
Headed out to the strip, did the Pawn Shop mission and went for Chad. He followed me and I grabbed Doris.
4.
By now I got the call for Esther. I pointed my survivors in a shop near the safehouse and went to get her. I dropped Esther off at the safehouse (not the others!).
5.
By now I did get the call 'Welcome to the family' and headed to Shanks via the Hot Excitorama shop on the strip.
6.
After that I headed to Yucatan and grabbed Lenny.
7.
Headed to the hotel for case 1:2.
8.
Achievement unlocked, apparantly Cassandra counts.
9.
Then I headed to the Americana casino for the lushious lady (drunk chick), carried her and the other 7 survivors to the safehouse.

Now why did I do it this way? I didn't get the call in the first try for 'Welcome to the family' but I did get lushious lady.
That's why I dropped off Esther at my second attempt. But apparantly Cassandra counted and unlocked the achievement for me. But I still escorted 8 to the safe house including the drunk chick.

Hope this helps!

did anyone else get a moronic Lenny???


this isn't pertaining to the achievement, as i already unlocked it, but i am wanting to take all 8 back to the safe house, as i would love the PP, i need Lenny for the 50 survivors, and im using the +25% PP for survivor related earnings, and well i did just save him, so id like to get him to the safe house. my problem with him is, he seems to act like a DR1 survivor, hahaha. i barely have time to make it back to the safe house, so im in a bit of a rush. i did notice that when i go up to him, the action button prompts me to talk to him which does nothing when i try it, so he may have glitched, as he just stand in one place getting attacked by zeds, but doesnt seem to take damage from them, but i have left the area, so now he has started to take damage... im sure by the time someone reads this i will already have gone far away from him, and may or may not be able to make it back to grab him after i drop off these survivors.

like i said, this doesn't really pertain to the achievement on subject, and im glad the achievement is for having the 8 in your party at one time rather than actually delivering 8 at once.

EDIT: haha, nice, well as i was typing this original post, i accidentally unpaused my game, and i got a "the truth has vanished" message, so i will edit this message as to whether the Lenny is fixed or not, hahaha... also, the two mags i mentioned in my previous post work great, you have to do case 1:2 to get access to the rescue mag, but it works out if you have to wait for the welcome to the family to pop, also, with the leadership mag the team is much more resilient, and take nearly no damage, and as someone previously stated, the survivors that are too week to walk (with exception of the mermaid lady im sure, although that's not till a ways later, which i might keep this mag to see if she can walk) can walk on thier own now, which can help with esther if you want, although i prefer to carry her, because like the OP said, zombies have a harder time messing with you when you are hauling a survivor

Does addressing the Pawn Shop message make a difference? Because for me it did when more or less following the first method. I got the Welcome to the Family message straight after I left the Pawn Shop (aka when it had been set up).

for me it didnt make a difference.i went to the pawnshop and i guess i was too early so i just went ahead and met up with rebecca since i already had the 7 survivors with me (rebecca counts as a survivor).as soon as she joined the cheevo popped.after i had everything done the Welcome To The Family scoop finally came up but i didnt need it anymore for the 8 people cheevo...its a matter of trial and error and DONT FORGET TO SAVE when you can.the good thing is that you can still keep going after you are done with the 8 survivors and get all the survivors if you are going for the Data Miner or The Hero Of Fortune City cheevos or anything else you are trying to complete

I think I got those first 3 parts (1-1, 1-2, 1-3) of Case 1 out of the way before i did that so Rebecca no longer counted. But my main point anyway is that I believe the Pawn Shop thing may still be a factor when it comes to the Welcome To The Family message. Perhaps the looter/Pawn Shop owner counts as some kind of a survivor (though obviously he isn't) til you talk to him.

it did for me... i thought it would pop when i entered the silver strip or whatever, and when it didn't, i figured it might when i completed that side mission, and it did...

i think its all down to timing (i know that sounds obvious, hahaha)

I definitely endorse the use of the Leadership magazine. It makes traveling with both Esther and Kristin far more tolerable.

"Is that all"? That magazine is a Godsend when you're going for saving 50+ survivors in one playthrough. Not having to carry anyone, except mermaid girl, is a huge time saver when you've got multiple people following you and one of them needs carrying.

I tryed something just abit diffent

I saved both Doctor and the Tiger and sent them to safe house and started fresh Right after giveing Kat her shot at 7am

Saved the two right outside the Safehouse and then went for chad and doris outside
then went for the Old lady in the toy store
I got Call for Jack and the Old man
Went and Got Lenny in Casino Yucatam
Then got Jack and old man and Bing Got the Achevement

and I did have the case "Alive on Location" during all this so the idea that she counts as one 8 slots held no water in my run had no problems doing it this way

Edit: on my way back to Safe house near bathrooms by safehouse hall I got the "Meet the Contestants" Call so that also didnt count as a Slot *yes I still have 8 ppl with me*

this is totally not working like the OP has laid out. My game seems hell bent on NOT generating the Welcome to the Family message >_<

also went on somes suggestion and killed the lush woman because that one likes to pop up in a timely fashion.

Instead I keep getting messages that lead to psychopath battles (Meet the Contestants and Chuck the Role Model. I did cases 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 and waited for 1-4 to expire to try to free up space for Welcome to the Family.

I guess getting this achievement isn't in the cards for me (at least on this playthrough) maybe I can still get the rescue 50 survivors one (or are there a significant amount of survivors that can only be rescued further along in the story)

This works perfectly. I think talking to Sullivan about the maintenance key even if you already have it might be the key to calls coming in. I know in my other attempts I didn't talk to him and never got the Pawn Shop call or Welcome to the Family. When I did talk to Sullivan, I got the Pawn Shop call and Welcome to the Family almost right away.

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

this really works

No, it really doesn't work. It may work for some, but this is not a cast iron method. I have tried this several times and I never get the call for "welcome to the family".

Rebecca counts as a survivor! (As does Snowflake)

EDIT: (added 10/13/2010) I have been keeping track of every single survivor that me and my coop partner picked up while going for the 50 survivors and last night I got proof positive that Rebecca does NOT count towards the "Hero of Fortune City" achievement (50 survivors), but she DEFINITELY does count towards "Come On! Follow Me!" (escort 8 survivors).

(My original post...)
I know that this has been mentioned already in this thread, but I want to just put it out there... 100% confirmation that Rebecca DOES count as a Survivor for the "Come On! Follow Me!" achievement.
(Disclaimer: This post is in no way meant to say that this is a better way to get the achievement "Come On! Follow Me!", it is only meant as confirmation that Rebecca does count as a survivor for this achievement)

Last night my coop partner and I went for this achievement right at the beginning of our Survivor run. We did not get rid of Ted before giving Katey her first Zombrex, instead we waited and used Snowflake as one of our 8 survivors (I vote Snowflake the best coop partner ever... she absolutely DESTROYS zombies :-).
EDIT: If you go to fight Ted and save Snowflake with other survivors in tow, keep in mind that survivors can NOT open doors. Take them immediately to the maintenance closet in the Yucatan Casino after the cutscene for Ted/Snowflake (make sure to close the door behind the survivors :-), THEN go fight Ted without having to worry about your survivors getting killed by Snowflake :-)

So we had the following survivors in tow:
(Listed in the order we picked them up, plus we did have the Leadership magazine found in the "One Little Duck Bingo" building off of the Silver Strip to help with Ester Alwin... we got it right after we were done getting Chad and Doris from the "Lost" side mission since we were in the Strip already)
1. Lashawndra Dawkins (no call - missable)
2. Gordon Dawkins (no call - missable)
3. Chad Elchart ("Lost" side mission)
4. Doris Elchart ("Lost" side mission)
5. Ester Alwin ("Short Sighted" side mission)
6. Snowflake (no call - Psycho battle with Ted, then we "tamed" her)
7. Lenny Monney (no call - get right after taming or killing Snowflake)

With these survivors in tow we went to do Case 1-2 "Alive on Location" to meet Rebecca Chang. Once we talked to Rebecca during Case 1-2 and she joins us, then she starts running to the Arena security room... POP! went the achievement ("Come On! Follow Me!").
