To anyone having a problem with this cheevo...

You must first make the 7 new weapons before you make any other weapons in the game. If you started off with an old combo then you will have to move your save file and start a new one.

wait, what? But you need a laser sword to make the last item, and
even if you have the ncp make it you steal have to bring a
laser sword with the E.Gun

I don't think the weapons will transfer into dr2 because it is set AFTER the events of dr2.

I have done the achievement by deleting my previous save, starting a fresh run doing the weapons UP TO the Laser Gun, my co-op partner ToothlessZombie then passed me the Laser Sword after HE made it, and i joined that with my Lightning Gun to make the Laser Gun, and thus get the achievement, as i recall it took a few seconds for it to appear, but appear it did and i have the achievement :) Hope this helps you guys out there.

i have some scratch cards left to unlock as combos but i don't know where to
find them, i need the reaper, the zap n' shine and the sterilizer... i made these
weapons during coop as host but they don't seem to be unlocked in solo as combos

hey guys. after trying this damn thing over and over i can finally confirm that the achievement will work when u start a new game from scratch,(level 40) and go build all seven of the new weapons, BUT!!!! make sure u dont skip any of the cutscenes where chuck is building the weapons. After the seventh one you should get the achievement :) I just did. Hope this helps :D

i starting to think what this achievement is random,i tried do this on lvl 50
and start game from the begining (i del. previous save, and dont miss any
cutscene), and still cant do this achievement.

I did it just fine from LV 50, i made the laser sword right before making the laser gun and i did not skip any of the cutscenes.

I'm having a very difficult time with this one as well. I've tried some of the suggestions here, but no achievement yet.

Hi there guys. I just got this achievement and I figured out what my problem was.
My problem was that I had to unlock the Laser Gun combo card by rescuing Survivor
number 5, who is located in room X1 in the Living Quarters after completing Case Number 2. What you have to do is that you have to give him a Laser Sword
(combined with a Flashlight + Gems) and an Electric Gun (combined with Blast
Frequency + Electric Rod). He will then combine them for you, and you unlock the Laser Gun Combo card. I did every other new weapon combo, and I got the achievement. I hope this helps you guys out as it did for me.

Monday, May 02, 2011 @ 07:56:50 AM

this achievement is highly glitchy. made everything that's new multiple times and it did not unlock. however, it may be the case that u need to make all of them as both chuck and frank because the combo for the Reaper, Sterilizer and Zap 'n' Shine are greyed out when u r chuck and the other new weapons are greyed out when u r frank., but this is only a guess and probably is incorrect because me and my friend did what i just explained and he got it but i didn't.

I got this achievement no problem using #4's link:

I started a new game at lvl.50 after getting Ending A and got all the weapons in the same order as the movie. I got the achievement instantly after putting the defib + med tray together.

Give it a shot

I guess I will try this from scratch, glad you just need the new ones but... watching all the "movies" of him building them? That is fucked up Capcom.

Comment #26 by afropig
Sunday, May 08, 2011 @ 11:05:02 PM

I didn't get it at first, but after I made myself a Laser Gun, rather than the survivor making it for me, the achievement popped up. Did not watch the scenes of him building it.

Comment #27 by Atanatos
Sunday, May 15, 2011 @ 04:47:46 AM

Yea, if you don't get it, definitely make sure you've made the laser gun yourself. I've made every weapon on different saves, playthroughs and switched between them multiple times, but i've had no problems with it.

I just used a flash drive and selected that as my storage device and started a new game. Follow the walkthrough video and it takes less than 10 minutes. You start at level 40 so you don't have as many slots in your inventory but everything else is the same as the video.

How do you make the laser gun then since u have to make the laser sword, wich is not new?

Comment #30 by fooyfoofy
Monday, June 13, 2011 @ 03:51:56 PM

I finally found out how to do this! Go to the home and go to system settings, memory, games, dead rising case west, then saved game and delete. Then play a new game, and make the required weapons!

Comment #31 by ArchBirch457

Just make the gun yourself and youll be fine.

Comment #32 by Countrymaniac

Finally just got it. Had to delete my save data and just made the 7 combo weapons and nothing else and I got it.

I completed this achievement on 9/10/2011 and can confirm that it wasn't glitched for me.

1. I didn't watch any cut scenes.
2. The order in adding items to the bench doesn't seem to matter.
3. I made a combination of the old (pre-Case West) and new (only in Case West items) before the achievement unlocked.

The last item I constructed was the laser gun (which was also the first one I constructed), and this was what popped the achievement for me. As noted previously, make sure that you actually construct it yourself as the one that is given to you by Jerry Sampson does not count towards the achievement.

Wednesday, October 05, 2011 @ 03:19:07 PM

#13's strategy is legit, only you CAN make th Laser Sword, since it is impossible to make Laser Gun without it. I deleted my save, started fresh and ONLY made the new combo weapons which are:
Zap N Shine
Lightning Gun
Impact Blaster
and FINALLY Laser Gun

Just to be safe dont skip any cutscenes, besides why would oyu wanna skip the cutscenes? Awesome ass workbench theme and Seeing Chucks face at the end is worth the time.

Comment #36 by Hamm1
Monday, October 10, 2011 @ 06:29:40 PM

Just make sure you actually make the laser gun and it will pop. I didn't make a new save and I skipped every cut scene

Comment #37 by LukeSniper
Sunday, November 06, 2011 @ 12:54:47 AM

I don't know why people have so much trouble with this. I got this without any problems.

I skipped all the videos of Chuck making something. You don't have to watch them. Anyone who suggests you do is retarded.

I made several of the old weapons as well. They don't mess anything up.

It does not have to be done in a single playthrough.

All you have to do is make all 7 of the new weapons, including the Laser Gun (the one that Jerry makes for you does not count). For me, the last one was the electro-buffer. I thought I had made it before, but I guess I made it during a session where I didn't save.

Thisbachievement is glitched, still. I tried to follow the video using my level 50 save twice and it didn't unlock. I moved my save to the cloud, then started a new game off the hard drive. I followed the video, didn't make any other weapon combos, and didn'twatch the cut scenes in full. The cheevo unlocked. My suggestion is to just start a brand new save. Good luck! Only took about ten minutes.

Wow, this Achievement is really a pain to unlock for me and this is my 3rd playthrough/2nd try. For my 2nd playthrough I trie making all the combo items starting from the first one (Drill Bucket) and worked my way down to the Laser Gun last. No Achievo... So I started my 3rd playthrough and after creating the 'specific' 7 Combo Card weapons first, IN ORDER (Shocker through Laser Gun), still no Achievo. Guess I'll have to create a New Save a hope that works.

so many glitchy achievements in 1 game :'(

Comment #42 by Chaz Of Sparta
Monday, June 10, 2013 @ 01:28:37 PM

I must've gotten really lucky, I skipped most of the cutscenes and built an old weapon first, but still got the achievement. Not sure why it's glitchy for so many people.

Comment #43 by PhantasyStar83
Monday, October 07, 2013 @ 05:31:44 PM

Missing the whole point...basically you don't do it by one single playthrough the whole have to do it in a single "CASE"...i got the achievement by doing so...and I was soooo relieved of all that stress just for something little as that...gave me such a headache...remember if it says "SINGLE PLAYTHROUGH"...its the "CASE" not the whole story!

Comment #44 by Legrand
Wednesday, February 11, 2015 @ 12:51:37 AM

@ #43 Is right about having to do it in a single "CASE", and just for everybody to know its best to be mentioned that 1-2 will have a lot of time, considering you can gather fresh materials in a flash. Also, for those worried about the whole save glitch issue you can just enable the Cloud Storage and move personal saves over without deleting them, since a new game altogether may be required where each of the new 7 weapons (lazer sword is safe to build) must be made as their initial scratch cards.
