Dead Rising 2 Achievement Guide + Road Map

This guide has been written by myself for use on x360a and x360a only. Any reproduction of this guide is not allowed and can only be obtained by asking my permission.

I will answer any questions you might have, but please, do not send random friend requests on Xbox Live. I will not accept them, unless a solid reason is included.

I want to thank Lord Maim and PowerPyx over at PS3trophies.org for their video material and mmartynn, SpinelesS, PsychoticScot and Hoernchen from x360.org for their in-depth walkthroughs and lists.

Also special thanks to N3xus Gam3r for making the banner.



- Estimated achievement difficulty: 6/10
- Approximate time: 30-40 hours
- Offline: 900

- Online: 100

- Missable Achievements: 'Having a Gas', 'Life Saver', 'Hero of Fortune City', 'Improper Behaviour', 'Justice Served', 'Judge, Jury and Executioner', 'Come on! Follow Me!, 'Father of the Year', 'Justice Served'
- Minimum number of playthroughs needed: 4 (5 recommended)
- Glitched achievements:
multi-playthrough achievements may provide some frustration. Co-op is glitchy.
- Cheats: None


1. Introduction

Dead Rising 2 features a timed mission game mechanic and allows you to restart the story at any point throughout the game while retaining your level and several key items.
This affects your playthroughs and achievements in several ways.

This is a quick summary of the things that need to be completed or obtained per playthrough.

  • Save 50 survivors ('Hero of Fortune City')
  • Spray all Zombrex posters ('Improper Behaviour')
  • Katey's Gifts ('Father of the Year')
  • All story related key items and several entrances (Underground, Shortcuts, Doors)
  • Zombie kill achievements (with the sole exception of 'Zombie Fu')

All other progress towards an achievement or non-story related items like the SUV or Bike keys carry over.
If possible, try and contain every achievement in one playthrough, there have been reports of them not unlocking when they should, requiring to use or do something that you've already done in your last playthrough, which makes it a pain to track down.


Due to the glitchy nature of coop, it might be wise to restrict your coop playthrough to the story and survivor/psycho achievements, while keeping most others for solo playthroughs, most notably the 'use all items' achievements.


2. Multiplayer

Starting off with multiplayer might be a good idea as the money earned can be transferred to a singleplayer savegame. This will make the 6.000.000$ achievement a little less steep.
Do note that this is not required, there are additional methods of earning money in single player.

Following tasks must be completed in ranked matches:
  • Win an event
  • Win an episode
  • Win all 9 events
Since the online community is virtually non-existent, you might want to head on over to the achievement trading thread and find yourself some boosting partners, which can be found here.


3. Playthrough 1 - Story/Coop

This will be the playthrough where you explore the storyline along with a fair share of survivor rescues and psycho killing. Get a friend or head to the co-op partner thread here to find one.

It is possible to complete your notebook for 'Data Miner' but due to your low level it might prove difficult, although co-op will cancel it out. Don't worry about things you've missed, but keep them in mind for your next playthroughs.

Some (parts of) achievements are only achievable during the storyline or events that occur late in the game. Make sure to do them at the appropriate time or you'll find yourself facing an extra playthrough.

  • 'Improper Behaviour'
  • 'Father of the Year'
  • 'Head Trauma'
  • 'S + Laughter = Slaughter'
  • 'Having a Gas'
  • 'Chuck Greene: Cross Dresser?'
  • 'He Has Covered Wars...'
  • 'Life Saver'
  • 'Justice Served'

4. Playthrough 2 - Survivors/Psychos and item checklists

This playthrough will be dedicated to finishing up all the achievements that you didn't finish in your first playthrough. This will vary individually, but I'll give a list of the things that most people will have left.
  • Complete melee/ranged/novelty/explosives checklists
  • Filling the notebook for 'Data Miner'
  • Visit all shops
  • Spend 6 million
  • Make all combo cards
  • Acquire all combo cards
  • All clothing
5. Playthrough 3 - Mopping up

Finish up any achievements you haven't gained yet, save for the 'zombie kills' achievements.

In this playthrough, the last thing you'll do is acquire 2 million to buy the SUV if you haven't done so already. Once acquired, restart the story and go to the next step.

6. Playthrough 4 - Zombie Genocide Master

You'll be spending another 6 hours driving the Silver/Platinum strip up and down to get 72000 zombie kills. Avoid crashing into obstacles and save when you feel you've done a good run on the strip, and don't be afraid to reload when you feel it was quite the opposite of a good run.

Zombie Slaughter - 20
Kill 500 zombies.

This will come naturally as you play.

Zombie Destruction - 20
Kill 5,000 zombies.

Either this will come naturally as you play, if not, refer to ‘Zombie Genocide Master’

Z-Genocider 2: Genocide Harder - 20
Kill 53,596 zombies.

Refer to ‘Zombie Genocide Master’

Zombie Genocide Master - 20
Kill 72,000 zombies.

You'll spend an entire playthrough dedicated to running over zombies with a SUV. Head on over to the post below for details on the generally accepted fastest method.
The big upside of this method is that you can reload your game whenever you feel you've had a bad run.

A full walkthrough can be found here.
Vigilante Justice - 20
Defeat 5 psychopaths.

See ‘Judge, Jury and Executioner’.

Judge, Jury and Executioner - 20
Defeat 10 psychopaths.

Psychopaths are survivors who have gone insane as a result of the outbreak in Fortune City. You'll encounter a fair share of these during the storyline, while others are messaged through your cellphone.
There are more than 10 pshychopaths in the game but some of these can be extremely difficult to defeat in your first playthrough, make sure you're prepared or save them for another playthrough when you have levelled up a bit.

Below is a list of the non-storyline messages that feature a psychopath, so that you can prepare accordingly.
  • Chuck the Role Model
  • Tastes Like Chicken
  • Meet the contestants
  • Here Comes the Groom
  • Everyone Knows Slappy
  • Mail Order Zombrex
  • WWJWD?
  • One Hit Wonder
  • World's Most Dangerous Trick
Ted the psychopath can be found at the very start of the game at Yucatan Casino and mid-game there'll be a foursome that appears on the Silver Strip. These are the only 'non-messaged' psychos in the game.

A timeline of both survivors and psychos can be found here.

A guide to defeating the psychos can be found here.

Zombie Fu - 20
Kill 1,000 zombies barehanded.

While playing through the game, use your jumpkick move
( then ) to kill zombies. While levelling up you'll receive additional barehanded moves. Not only are these moves fun to mess around with, they'll make killing zombies quite a bit easier.
Be on the lookout for the smash grab move
(hold + ) as there is another achievement (Smashy) that requires you to kill 100 zombies with that move.

The kill count is spread across all playthroughs, given you restart the story from a previous save, but there have been reports of it not unlocking, so it's best to contain them in one playthrough, just to be on the safe side.

Note: The moves you receive while levelling are random. Don't worry if a certain skill hasn't unlocked yet, you'll get them all eventually.

Wrong kind of "Chopper" - 20
Kill 1,000 zombies while riding a motorcycle.

After completing the 'Meet the contestants' mission, you'll have access to the bike's workshop, which can be found inside a trailer near the Yucatan Casino entrance on the Platinum Strip. You can attach items, such as a chainsaw to the bike.

Simply fetch a chainsaw, located in the maintenance room directly across the Slot Ranch Casino entrance on the Silver Strip, and bring it back to the trailer. Attach it to the bike
and you have yourself a brand new Slice Bycicle.

You can make tours on the Silver/Platinum Strip until you have 1000 kills, but it's best to save this for case 6-3 when you're about to save Rebecca, since you can complete another achievement (Having a Gas) at the same time.

Make the Slice Bycicle as explained above and take it underground through the hole that's revealed in the Case 6-3 cutscene. Once there, start making circles through the underground tunnels. You'll be able to earn both achievements at the same time, thus saving precious time in your playthrough.


He hasn't covered wars... - 20
Use every type of firearm on a zombie.

This achievement requires you to actually kill the zombie with the firearms.

As all other multi-playthrough achievements, there have been reports of it not unlocking when it should. Again, try to contain the requirements in one playthrough, to be on the safe side.

  • Assault Rifle - Can be bought in Pawn Shops, appearance seems to be random
  • BFG - Combo Weapon, refer to ‘Duct Tape FTW’
  • Handgun - Various locations
  • LMG - Can be bought in Pawn Shops, appearance seems to be random
  • Merc Rifle - Only found during storyline cases
  • Shotgun - Weapon Shop in Pallisades Mall
  • Six Shooter - Only obtainable after killing the psycho from WWJWD?
  • Sniper Rifle - Weapon Shop in Pallisades Mall
A walkthrough can be found here.

Head Trauma - 20
Use every type of melee weapon on a zombie.

It is not required to kill them, hitting them will suffice.


As all other multi-playthrough achievements, there have been reports of it not unlocking when it should. Again, try to contain the requirements in one playthrough, to be on the safe side.

Take note of the following items and ensure you find these while doing the relevant missions/cases.

Unique items:
  • Giant Pink Chainsaw - 'Here Comes The Groom' side mission
  • Katana - Case 4-1
  • Magician's sword - 'The World's Most Dangerous Trick' side mission
  • Military Case - Starting from Case 5, hard to miss boxes though.
  • Trophy - 'Two for Company' side mission.
You can find a detailed walkthrough here, along with a video below for visual aid.

If you still need this as a gift for Katey and you don't want to break it, simply throw it at a zombie by pressing then

A walkthrough can be found here. Also a video below for visual aid.

Come on! Follow me! - 20
Escort 8 survivors at once.

For this achievement, you'll be finding and bringing back 8 survivors to the safehouse at once. While this task seems daunting, there are quite a few ways of achieving this, and luckily, there's a way at the very start of the game, for which a guide can be found
here.

Saving the Day - 20
Save 10 survivors.

See ‘Hero of Fortune City’

Hero of Fortune City - 20
Save 50 survivors.

Survivors are saved by finding them and escorting them back to the safehouse. Survivors are mostly messaged to your cellphone while others only appear at certain points throughout the game.

This achievement must be done in a single playthrough, as opposed to 'Data Miner' which is cumulative, although both can be done in a single run, if managed correctly.
It is possible to do this in your first playthrough, along with the storyline, but I recommend saving them for a different playthrough, along with the 'use all items on zombies' achievements.

A guide for gaining both achievements in one playthrough can be found here.

A few pointers about survivors:
  • The game only allows you to have 8 survivors at the same time during the game, so if a mission doesn't trigger, chances are you'll need to finish a few missions before they appear
  • When a message is incoming for the area you're currently present, the message will not appear. Leave the area to trigger it.
  • Do not hang about in the safehouse waiting for calls, messages do not appear and you might miss out.
  • Do not leave your survivors behind a loading screen. They gradually lose health and will die eventually. Always wait at the door until all the survivors have a green door icon above their heads/avatar.
  • Check their avatars. If someone seems to be lingering, chances are they are cripple or they're being held by a zombie. A quick glance at the avatar will reveal it's condition.
  • If you happen to come across a psycho encounter while escorting survivors, cram them in a maintenance room or any room with doors that is zombie-free and close it. Apparently the aura of the zombies degrades their ability of opening doors.
Needs more chainsaw - 20
Create a combo weapon.

See ‘Duct Tape FTW’

Duct Tape FTW - 20
Create all combo weapons.

Combo Weapons are weapons that are obtained by combining various items found throughout the game. You can recognize items that are combinable by their wrench icon instead of a gun icon.
A list and walkthrough for this achievement can be found
here.

Apprentice Rising - 20
Reach level 25.

See ‘Professional Rising’

Professional Rising - 20
Reach level 50.

Various actions throughout the game net you PP, the experience points of Dead Rising.
Since you'll be playing this game more than once to obtain all achievements, there is no need to worry about this.

Fashion Aficionado - 20
Change into 10 different pieces of clothing.

See ‘Chuck Greene: Cross Dresser?’

Chuck Greene: Cross Dresser? - 20
Change into all the clothes in the game.

You need to wear every single piece of clothing, save for unlockables, to get this achievement. Just about every store in Fortune City has some clothes you can dress Chuck with. Some are funny, while others border to downright disturbing... in a fun way though.

As all other multi-playthrough achievements, there have been reports of it not unlocking when it should. Try to contain the requirements in one playthrough, to be on the safe side.

This post right here contains a list of all shops and their clothes. I suggest printing it and using it as checklist to save frustration of missed pieces of clothing.
Use the video's below for visual aid.

Clean Record - 20
Complete The Facts.

Progress through the story without failing any of the cases. At the end of the game you'll have a choice of giving TK Zombrex or not. Do so in order to obtain this achievement along with another one a little later on.

Bartender - 20
Mix a drink.

See ‘Look at all that juice!’

Look at all that juice!- 20
Create and consume all mixed drinks in the game.

Combine two kinds of food/drinks to obtain one of the 9 results. Mix and consume all 9 to receive this achievement.

A walkthrough can be found
here.



Finally Full - 20
Eat all types of food in the game.

Simply consume all different types of food, including drinks, to gain this achievement.

As all other multi-playthrough achievements, there have been reports of it not unlocking when it should. Try to contain the requirements in one playthrough, to be on the safe side.

A walkthrough can be found
here.


Note: All types of rotten food can be found in trashcans INSIDE the restaurants of the Food Court. Do not bother with the ones outside, they often only have sodas/guns/snacks. You only need to eat one rotten food, not every one of them



Having A Gas20
Kill 1,000 "special" zombies.

Refer to and combine this with ‘Wrong Kind of “Chopper”’ to achieve this without wasting too much precious time.

Note: You only have one shot at this once they appear. Failing to get this achievement will result in another near-full storyline playthrough to get to this point.

Father of the Month - 20
Give Katey a gift.

See ‘Father of the Year’

Father of the Year - 20
Give Katey every possible gift.

Katey is having a rough time, so it would be very thoughtful to bring back an item or two every once in a while.
Bring back the following items to her to obtain this achievement. This must be done in one playthrough.
  • Bag of Marbles
  • Beach Ball
  • Funny Painting – Only obtainable during sidemission ‘Art Appreciation’
  • Giant Stuffed Bull
  • Giant Stuffed Donkey
  • Giant Stuffed Elephant
  • Giant Stuffed Rabbit
  • Robot Bear
  • Snowflake the Tiger – Only obtainable at the start of the game, see ‘The Skill to Survive’
  • Stick Pony
  • Water Gun
Make sure to examine Snowflake once you tamed him in order to ‘give’ it as a gift, so if you’re sure everything’s there besides the achievement, chances are you haven’t examined Snowflake yet.


Justice Served - 20
Complete Overtime Mode.

Give TK Zombrex in order to unlock Overtime Mode.


In Overtime Mode, you'll need to finish a series of fetch missions before you can take on TK.
Both the missions and the boss fight are fairly straightforward, with the fight being the hardest part of this mode.

The video below will give you an idea on what to expect from the final fight.

Better With a Friend - 20
Solve all case files in Co-op.

Simply play through the game with a friend. This does not need to be done in one sitting.

Don't you die on me!- 20
Revive another player in Co-op.

Let your teammate get downed and revive him by giving him some food/drinks

Curiously Inventive - 20
Collect all combo cards hidden in Fortune City.
  • Burning Skull – Spend approximately 1 million at the Fortune Teller on the Silver Strip
  • Laser Sword – Examine the poster in Paradise Platinum Screens at the Platinum Strip
  • Blambow – Examine the poster at the Food Court in between Wild West Grill and the Italian
  • Holy Arms – Examine the poster in Atlantica Casino, Fortune Park entrance on your right.
  • Freedom Bear – Examine the poster near the toilet (save point) in Yucatan Casino
  • Paddlesaw – Examine the poster at the Silver Strip, across Hot Excitorama
  • Snowball Cannon – Examine the poster on the 2nd floor of Pallisades Mall next to Maintenance room
  • Tenderizers – Examine the poster in Royal Flush Plaza, in front of the entrance to Americana
  • Spiked Bat – Combine these in the first Maintenance room when coming from the Safehouse


Big Spender - 20
Spend $6,000,000 in Fortune City.

After starting the single player game, make a save, quit and start playing some multiplayer. Money gained in multiplayer can be transferred to an existing single player save file, so while you're getting your multiplayer achievements, you'll be working this achievement aswell.

Chances are you're not completely done with this after your multiplayer madness, so I'll list the quickest and unfortunately also the most boring method.

Research your gambling skills by gathering all 3 magazines:
  • Ragazines in Royal Flush Plaza
  • Stan's Large Print Books and Magazines in Pallisades Mall 2nd floor
  • Shamrock Casino on the Silver Strip behind the bar
Keep your 3 magazines in your inventory and make your way to the big pink slot machine in Slot Ranch Casino. Push the 1000$ button, wack a zombie while you wait, and you should be raking in money fairly fast.

Once you have your 6 Million, be sure to spend some cash on various items around the shops.

Things you need to buy/do for other achievements:
  • Buy SUV Keys for 2 million at the Silver Strip pawnshop
  • Spend approx. 1 million at the fortune teller at the Silver Strip to obtain a hidden combo card
You can spend the rest as you see fit.

Window Shopper - 20
Enter all the stores in the game.

Visit all stores in the game. You'll most likely get this together with the 'Cross Dresser' achievement.

A list of all stores can be found here.


Masquerade - 20
Have 10 zombies with masks on at once.

Put 10 masks on zombies in order to unlock this achievement. You can do this at the Royal Flush Plaza, where you start off.


Improper Behavior - 20
Spraypaint all Zombrex posters.

Throughout the game, you’ll find zombrex posters of various shapes and sizes. Refer to the video for the locations.

These must be done in one playthrough and you'll need to play up to a certain part in the story in order to unlock doors which have two more posters behind them, so I suggest doing this on your storyline playthrough.


TK's Favorite - 20
Play and win in all 9 TIR events.

This is the multiplayer section of the game and features various mini-games. Win all of them in order to obtain this achievement.
Money earned in this mode can be transferred to a single player savegame, so it's a good idea to start your Fortune City adventure here.
The online community is pretty much dead, so boosting may be required to finish all 3 multiplayer achievements.
Some tips for every mode can be found here.

The achievement trading thread can be found here.

Rising Star - 20
Come in first place in a single TIR event.

See ‘TK’s Favorite

Win Big! - 20
Finish in first place in a TIR episode.

You’ll get this while working on ‘TK’s Favorite’. Try to win as much events as possible and finish in 1st place. Must be done in ranked.

Custom Finish - 20
Give your bike a custom paint job.

Use a spray paint can on the bike inside the trailer.
Refer to ‘Wrong Kind Of “Chopper”'. on how to access the trailer.
Since you need to spray zombrex posters throughout the game, you should have one or more in your inventory.

Life Saver - 20
Collect all survivor combo cards.
  • Plate Launcher – Obtained by doing the non-messaged side mission ‘Tape it or Die’
  • Blazing aces – Obtained by rescuing the survivors from side mission ‘Tape it or Die’
  • Exsanguinator – Obtained by rescuing the survivors from side mission ‘Tape it or Die’
  • Power Guitar - Obtained by rescuing the survivors from side mission 'The Rock Show'
For the 'Tape it or Die' survivors, see 'Hero of Fortune City'. You will have to do a side mission for them, but it won't be until much later in the game that you actually rescue them. There's not enough time to rescue them on a non-storyline playthrough, so make sure you do it while solving cases.

Note: Some people have reported that the door to 'Tape it or Die' doesn't open while it's supposed to. This is possibly related to the fact that you can only have 8 survivors active at any one time in the game (safehouse excluded). The poker team in Atlantica Casino appear around the same time, make sure to rescue/kill them first.

Data Miner - 20
Fill all entries in the notebook.

Filling your notebook is matter of meeting all people throughout your adventures in Fortune City. This includes psychopaths, survivors and storyline characters you meet.
Most of these will come naturally by playing through the game, while other entries require some effort and timing.

Although this achievement is possible in one playthrough, it's certainly not a requirement, if you happen to miss some, you'll have a chance of completing them in subsequent playthroughs.

This achievement is best combined with 'Hero of Fortune City'. A walkthrough for gaining both in the same playthrough can be found
here.

Smashy - 20
Smash 100 zombies using the Smash skill move.


You will obtain this skill by leveling up. Once you do so, kill 100 zombies by holding + , to grab it’s head and smash it against whatever’s around, such as a shop counter or a wall.

The video below elaborates on how to obtain him.


Secret Achievements

Tape it Or DIE! - 20
Discovered The Secret Combo Card. Did You Cheat By Checking Online?

Once you have access to queen bees (you’ll know when you do once you watched the Queen bee cutscene), simply mix two orange juices to make nectar at one of the various mixers throughout Fortune City.
A queen bee will spawn upon mixing these, so grab it and combine it with the nectar you just made at a maintenance room(!) to unlock the Combo Card and achievement.

I suppose you meant that the font is dick, and not me for choosing it... if not, look again.

Formatting's done, adding links, videos, etc..

Surely that co-op case file achievement doesn't need to be all in one sitting? If so that's insane.

I'll add it to the guide soon, but I'll give you a quick list:

1: story
2: survivors/psychos/misc stuff with remaining time
3: 72k kills

Might be necessary to start a fourth to tie up loose ends.

For reviving a co-op buddy in campaign, simply kill him or let him die.
Then give something(I gave orange juice) while he's down to revive him.
Just like giving health items or weapons to survivors in single player.

Anyone going to post a boosting thread for TIR events. Because being 1st in all events is very hard. Also finding game too.

Dont mention it. Good guide by the way.
Combining with the other guide would be great.

Gonna take a nap now. When I'm back I'm going to play and confirm loose bits of info myself.

Don't expect an update within the first few hours, but I'll check some info from the community, if any, and update accordingly if it concerns a big matter.

Things I want to see cleared ASAP:

- SUV or Bike for Genocide cheevo's
- a sure-fire way of getting into the locked door for the tape it or die sidemission
- whether or not melee/firearm/food/clothes carry over (I can check this easily as I started my 3rd playthrough with only a handful of foods left to eat, same for firearms)
- survivor list, most notably the non-mission ones and when/where they appear
- notebook list

Arrow Imo...

Well good night then, haha.

As for the carry-over thang. I just did the DUCT TAPE FTW (Created all combo weapons.) and the Super B.F.G. was missing (BFG + Amplifier). Since I had no way to go to the underground tunnels (let the stories slip) and since the fucking INTERACTIVE MAP ain't working I still got the achievement.

And for all the weapons etc, especially NOVELTY WEAPONS it would be nice to make a list WHERE TO FIND THEM, not just only a list.

Anything else looks great so far. Thanks!

Food eaten carries over to another playthrough, which I can confirm as I just got the achievement.

This leads me to believe that things like hitting zombies with ranged/melee/etc will carry over too.

I need a six shooter from the psycho side mission to confirm this aswell. Stay tuned !

for zombie fu and smashy you might want to include another method that is so far the fastest i have found.

you will have to wait until you aquire the "smash" skill (so do this on your second or third playthrough). in the middle of "royal flush plaza" there is this giant craps game. jump over the handrail and get rid of the three zombie cops. then stand directly behind the rail and start smashing zombies with rt+x. the zombie you get a hold off will glitch through to your side and you will get the kill without ever having to fear being hit or grabbed. you will only be able to reach zombies that are very close but as there are many you will still be able to get the kills very fast. after you have run out of zombies (around 100 or so) just leave and reenter the plaza to respawn the zombies...
