Dead Rising 2: Case Zero

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Achievements

Small Town, Deep Pockets

Spend $100,000 in the pawnshop.  

Inflation is very high in this game, so everything costs a lot of money. Once you have rescued Gemini go ahead and do her sidequest (after you save her, leave safehouse and you'll hear her crying). The item she wants you to find is on the right side of the road leading to the Quarantine Camp. You will have $30,000 given to you total for saving and helping her. Now make a seperate save file, or save without the intention of saving over your playthrough. You will want to get around $70,000 from the casino. Buy a moose head ($500) at the pawnshop and go to the casino. Everything takes one hit to destroy with the moose head. You should make around $7000. Now, if you hold you will start running at about twice the speed knocking over anything in front of you. Head to the safehouse and go through the door. The casino slot machines are now restored. Just go back and forth gaining money until you have enough. To check how much money you have spent, hit and go to status.

This one is a little time consuming, but what you want to do is run down to the
casino and just start destroying slot machines, and when you're done go back
to the safe house door so you will get a load screen and then head back to the
casino and start again. You will get about 7200 each time you do this. I
did this on my final playthough and SAVED before spending in pawn shop. Reason
for me doing this last and saving before is just in case your money carries
over in full game like your level does.

Before you break the machines try the ones that have money in front of them or zombies in front of them, you win a few times, $300 each time, you get more money easier, then you destroy them and get more money!

The best way to get money for this is first to save Gemini in the bar , she gives you 15k dollars . Then leave the safe house and come back in , talk to her shes crying near the chain link fence . She will tell you to get her gems and she will give you the rest of her money . Go back near the Quarantine area , there are gems on the road right side of a car in the road . Go back she gives you another 15k dollars...not a bad way to make an easy 30k each game .

Thankfully this one carries over from other playthroughs. Here's some thoughts on
getting money. Don't forget to head back to the safe house to respawn everything!

*Playing certain slot machines then smashing them to pick up the remaining cash.
(don't forget to get the ATM machines too!)
*Talk to Bob and the first survivors you save give you $15,000 dollars.
*Afterward talk to Gemini and she will give you another $15,000 for retrieving
her lost gems. You'll find them next to a yellow car in the Quarantine Zone.

Once you have the cash just buy the medication Zombrex four times.

I know you gotta do multiple playthroughs to get enough money, but does the money from spent on one playthrough to the other carry over as well?

I found that the cart was really boring. After you unlock the cutscene witht he wasp you can go on the roof of the gas station and the boards will be gone. I just made an IED (propane and nails) walked up there, grabbed the sniper, then threw the IED down shot that which can take out a lot of you place correctly and give you tons of PP. From there I just started sniping, Big groups work best as it shoots through them. I also used the queen on the biggest groups I could find.

Crap, wrong thread. I meant to put this on the "kill 1,000 zombies" admins, if you could delete this please? I'm new so I'm not sure if or how to do that.

this does unlock on multiple playthroughs, funny tho how i got it randomly while at the casino getting some $$$.

i did a few playthroughs awhile ago, so i knew i had some money already spent at the pawn shop. i bought 2 zombrex a minute ago then went to the casino. got all the money there, went to the safe house, saved and went back to the casino. then after smashing half the stuff there the achievement just popped. weird.

Make sure you do a bit of betting before destroying, you can often push that 7k up to 9 or 10k per visit... I notice that the same machines tend to pay out in succession.

Yeah, like #3 and #14 say, play the machines before you smash them. There's no randomness to it. The ones with notes in front of them will pay out 5 times before running dry, so you're getting a net $1000 from each one just from gambling. If the machine doesn't have notes in front don't put any money in, it'll be a waste.

Then destroy all the machines, you get $300 from each. I like to visit the hunting shop before each casino visit to stock up on shotguns. Don't forget to break the ATMs too, and you can also pick up and throw the cash register for a few more bucks.

If you're short of time by the time you have the 100k, just buy four packs of Zombrex one after the other, and pop goes the achievement.

What's the obsession with the moose head?
Just use a bat on the machines.

Just wanted to chime in that the achievement will pop with $100,000 spent over multiple playthroughs.

Does NOT have to be in only one.
