Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Achievements

Cramped Quarters

Get 8 survivors into a vehicle.  

If you are doing Story mode, when you go to the safe house, leave the survivors in the bathroom of the Royal Flush or the maintenance room outside of the safe room. You can do this with the first 8 survivors.


  • First get Denyce.
  • Then go kill Ted - you must kill or tame Snowflake. If you choose to tame Snowflake you must leave Denyce in the bathroom and take Snowflake back to the safe room as tigers can't go in cars.
  • Then once you are back in the Royal Flush after dealing with Snowflake, Lashwandra & Gordan will be there, save them too.
  • Then go back to the Yucatan and save Lenny - he is in the back room behind the help desk in the Yucatan.
  • Next mission should be "Welcome to the Family" with Jack and Kenneth.
  • And then 'Lush-ous Lady' with Kristin.
  • Finally you can save Randolph in the 'Art Appreciation' mission.
  • Finally, the location of the clown car (for me, anyway) was in the Uranus Zone next to the snack kiosk. For some it may be on the Silver Strip next to the wedding chapel. Get all 8 survivors in the car and net the achievement.

- Get the leadership magazine from Rag Mags' second floor in Royal Flush Plaza.
- Carry health to heal survivors.
- Try not to hit the survivors, they may defect.
- Don't just run ahead as the survivors can get constantly bitten by a zombie & lose most of their health.
- Give the survivors weapons. They don't take combo weapons though.

not another tour guide achievement having 8 survivors is so annoying you have to wait around hours for the calls

Actually, they fixed that a lot, the AI of the survivor's is improving, so it shouldn't be too hard.

Ok, i just got this one and this is how you should do it... You'll get a call from Steph about 2 guys in a store and she says she cant tell if they are laughing or crying... they are named Royce and Walter... they're 2 douchebags who tell horrible jokes and u have to give the comedy trophy to one of them and the one u dont WILL cry like a bitch the entire time they are with you... Then, you'll get a call saying she see's a guy bleeding just off the Strip, go to him, and he'll need a dose of Zombrex to come with you, his name is Jared (not the subway guy) if you dont have it, get ur ass into the clown car and drive straight down to the Pawn Shop thats on the strip closest to the arena, once u leave there, you'll hear gunshots, thats Chad, get him to join you then go grab his gold digging wi

digging wife on a souvenir stand right outside the arena... once they reunite, thats 5... Offer Jared a shoulder and go into the Slot Ranch Casino, once you do, you should get a call right away about an EMT taking someone into an alley, trun right around, go back into the Strip and into the Alley to find Sven, thats 6... then you'll get a call about someone cooking in the food court, its a Psycho fight... beat the bastard and there is a girl held hostage in the fridge... go there, her name is Cinda she'll tell you that shes not leaving til you bring her Jasper who is in the food court on the 2nd floor hiding cuz he's a bitch... reunite them and boom thats 8 people... take them back to the strip, get them all in the clown car and Boom... Achievement :) Good Luck!

I got it with the drunk woman in Americana, art guy in Palisades, 4 nerds in South and 2 guys in Uranus Zone. There's a clown car on the path from the Yucatan to Royal Flush which you use to get all 8 in.

I'm not sure, but it's possible that the car won't respawn when it's destroyed. I rode it and it got destroyed after hitting a lot of zombies.
I came back later with 8 survivors and I couldn't find the car. I went whole area, but no luck.

Maybe it's glitch, but be careful just in case. Don't ride the car until you get 8 survivors for achievement.

Lol. As soon as I saw the clown car I knew how this was to happen. Also, you get an outtake if you photograph the butt on the car.....classic.

I got Snowflake without ever taming her. I passed through the casino where she was and because Frank was only level 1 I was in no shape to deal with her so I exited into Palisades Mall. Came back after Case 3-1 thinking she must be gone by now but instead the cutscene of Frank saying 'Good kitty' played and she was tamed. I had to fight Theodore though but I laughed when Snowflake attacked Theodore instead. I helped her kill him and that was it. Hilarious.

OK I get Denyce, then I go get snowflake and Lenny (I drop just snowflake off, I can't bear to kill her...), I get Lashawndra, Gordon, Bill, Jack, and Kenneth. And then no one else will spawn, no matter what I do. Why? I just need Kristin to spawn. Or Chad and Dorris. Anyone. And no more survivors will. It's upsetting. Help a girl out.
