Dead Rising 2: Case Zero

Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Achievements

A bigger taste...

Build all available combo weapons.  

Combo Weapon Checklist

Below is a checklist you may use if you want to keep easier track of what combos you need and what ones you have. You can copy it into paint and use the brush to put an X in the white squares. I suggest worrying about these on a seperate save file, maybe the one you're getting your money on. These wil only take about 10-15 minutes to complete using my item locations. There are multiple locations for the items, but my layout will gives the easiest access and lowest amount of loading. You can create these over multiple playthroughs and still get the achievement. Items respawn after a load screen or cut scene. The most efficient place to contstruct your weapons is the maintenance room by Big Buck Hardware store, as almost all of the items you need are close by.

Spiked Bat
-Bat: In front of you when you start, in the shed.
-Nails: In front of you when you start, in the shed.

Drill Bucket
-Drill: In the scapyard
-Bucket: In the scrapyard

- Propane Tank: Maintenance room next to Big Buck Hardware
- Nails: Maintenance room next to Big Buck Hardware

-Whiskey: Behind theatre in the alley
-Newspaper: Behind theatre in the alley

Air horn
-Plyon (traffic cone): On the road towards Quarantine Camp, you'll find it between the first two white vans.
-Aerosol Can (spray paint): Alley behind Sheriff's Office

Electric Rake
-Rake: Big Buck Hardware Store
-Battery: Behind theatre in the alley on a garbage can (at the end of alley)

-Oar: To the right of the first building on the bottom part of the map coming from the safehouse (the lone building by the Sheriff's Office). It's in the corner near the fence.
-Chainsaw: Big Buck Hardware Store

Beer Hat
-Beer: Found on streets or in Sheriff's Office by shotgun.
-Helmet: On a roof. Jump to where Bob stands. Head towards the fire escape that leads to the 2nd story of the motel. Jump from that area to the opposite building. Go to where the metal bridge starts and look left.

- Shotgun: Go behind the Sherrif's Office through the alley and it's upstairs on the desk in the office.
- Pitchfork: Big Buck Hardware store.

copied this from this website

1. Spiked Bat: Combine a Box of Nails and a Baseball Bat. You’ll find these all over the place, and specifically in the Safe House.
2. I.E.D.: Combine a Box of Nails and a Propane Tank. These are also all over the place, and found immediately at the start of the game in the Safe House.
3. Drill Bucket: Combine a Power Drill and a Bucket. When you start at the Safe House, check the wall alongside the shed in the Junk Yard for a Bucket. There’s a drill on the hood of the junked car inside the Garage where you find the work bench.
4. Air Horn: Combine a Parking Pylon and Spray Paint. You can find the Parking Pylon in several places, including in the alley to the right of the Department

Store and in the Quarantine Area. Spray Paint can be found on the roof of the Gas Station: go into the store and use the door on the left to enter a storage room with a ladder. The paint is to the left of the ladder on the roof.
5 Electric Rake: Combine a Leaf Rake and a Battery. You can find rakes all over, but specifically in the Hardware Store and the Department Store. The Battery, however, is much harder – there’s only one. Go to the Barber Shop and look for an alley to the right, which has a fence. Follow it all the way to the back, to the back side of the Movie Theater, and look for the Battery on top of a Dumpster.
6 Beer Hat: Combine a Beer with a Construction Hat. You’ll find Beer all over (but lots are in the bar beside the Department Store and on Bob’s Roof). Get the Construct

Hat by climbing from Bob’s spot up to the upper roof level beside it. Look for a bridge that leads to another building – you’ll find the Construction Hat to the left, in the corner. It’s the only one.
7 Molotov Cocktail: Combine Whiskey and a Newspaper. Whiskey is in various places and stores, including the bar and the Department Store. Newspapers are all over the street, and in the work room beside the Hardware Store you’ll find both Molotov components.
8 Boomstick: Combine a Shotgun with a Pitchfork. The Shotgun is located in the Sheriff’s Office on the desk in the second floor office – get inside through the alley around the back of the office. Pitchforks are easiest to find in the Hardware Store.

9 Paddle Saw: Combine a Chainsaw and Kayak Paddle. There’s only one Kayak Paddle in the game – right outside of the safe room, check the right side wall of the boarded building across the street. It’s the one with the van in front, the one you find Dick on top of. You can grab Chainsaws from the Hardware Store, which is located near the shed and past the Bowling Alley.
10 ACHIEVEMENT: Build all eight weapons in a single playthrough to unlock the “A Bigger Taste…” Achievement.

Tuesday, September 14, 2010 @ 02:04:50 PM

The description says build all weapons, so we shouldn't have to get combo cards- just build them. I did that, but still it didn't pop. Has anyone gottent his one to pop?

I guess I'll try it in one playthru and see if that works.

Alot of people say that you only have to make 8 combinations but the beer hat
is included so there are a total of 9 combinations that have to be completed in
order to get this achievement also im pretty sure it has to be done in one

Do you have to use each weapon to get this unlock or just to combine them? I got the boomstick card without having combined the damn thing O.o

I got the spiked bat kinda right of the bat (Pardon the pun) along with the drill bucket and the IED. However, I've only used the drill bucket and spiked bat...I never bothered with exploding the damn thing.

Help, anyone?

Damn. Got all 9 but no achievement. Three are combo cards, the rest are scratch cards. Any ideas?

Comment #25 by iameac
Thursday, March 17, 2011 @ 01:34:37 PM

Nevermind. I had all the scratch cards/combo cards from multiple play throughs, but I had to rebuild them all in the same play through in order for it to pop.

Got this achievement, it was the last one I needed to complete everything! I would like to note that this does have to be done in one play-through. Also, these items can be used to get PP really fast.
