Dead Rising 2: Off the Record

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Achievements

Alpha Vs. Omega

Have Denyce attack and damage Sgt Boykin.  

Denyce is the first survivor you encounter and you have to keep her with you for the campaign until Case 7-2 when you fight Sgt Boykin to unlock this achievement.

Try to be a high level when you do this and always carry lots of health. You should get the leadership magazine from Rag Mags on the second floor of the Royal Flush Plaza. Give Denyce the LMG - it is found in the Yucatan Casino in the elevated grassy area across from the tiger enclosure and next to the restaurant.

Leave her outside of the area when you fight psychopaths during the story (i.e.. the Twins in Case 5-2). When you have to go to the roof of the Fortune City Hotel to fight TK, leave her in the Royal Flush Plaza bathroom. To get the mission done quickly mix 2 Quicksteps beforehand (wine + wine or coffee + coffee creamer) and try to beat TK quickly. Use the Protoman Arm Cannon against the helicopter if you have it unlocked as it is very effective. Once TK is defeated you will be teleported to the safe house, head out to the Royal Flush and heal Denyce.

It will makes things easier if you don't fight many psychopaths during this playthrough. Try not to hit Denyce much either as she may defect. Save often too so if she does die or defect, you can reload the save. Good luck!

Thisll be interesting.
From the looks of it, this may be the hardest ach imo. First survivor must damage the second to last psychopath. First vs Last.
Ugh. tons of waiting and screaming will come from this, hopefully easily boosted though by a co-op partner loading up a save near the end with Denyce.
Heres hoping.

@1: Remember the story will be different, maybe denyce will be found around
the end, we can't tell for sure.

Oh wow, if you have to do what I think you have to..

Constantly drag her along while you fight psychos,
make her wait outside while to enter safe-room,
feed and arm her every step of the way..

Holy sh*t, this is going to be awesome!

Just do this straight away, lock her in a maintenance room & visit regularly too give health throughout the game (in my save when i locked survivors in a maintenance room tey slowly dwindled away health) be easy just go pick her up b4 this mission

It's a testament to how much the survivor AI's improved that people think this is gonna be fun xD

Just do the cases, save, save, save and you' ll be fine. I' m pretty sure
you can get the book that boosts the skills of the survivors again. Not a
hard achievement, but an interesting one for sure!

Oh good #1, we should all boost achievements so we can make ourselves look good while people like MWAH actually put in effort to get them.
But yes, this achievement looks very interesting, whether or not shes closer to the end, it will be something to see.

Get over yourself, #13, it's a pointless reward that is placed on your gamercard and does absolutely nothing but boost your E-Peen. Who cares how someone gets it, as long as they get it in a way they are happy with. Gads, some acheivers.

Saturday, September 03, 2011 @ 11:07:18 AM

A bible verse found in Fallout 3 might help: "I am ALPHA and OMEGA, the BEGINNING and the END..." This achievement is going to make you take the FIRST survivor (the BEGINNING mission of the game also for your first zombrex) to one of the LAST psychopaths. Really shouldn't be hard. Especially in Co-op if you have one person babysit her. Don't forget to give her a gun!

Comment #18 by zarda1
Sunday, September 04, 2011 @ 08:24:53 PM

dead rising was a pain to escort survivors, dr2 however was much easier and they rarely got attacked plus there was a lot of places to hide them, not too bad, at least they didn't bring 7day survivor back.

at leased you dont have to go to the safe room as often now that you can use zombrex wherever you are

Saturday, October 01, 2011 @ 11:09:38 AM

just give her an LMG, make sure boykin attacks YOU and not HER, and ach.tagged and bagged.

Friday, October 07, 2011 @ 10:15:38 AM

Seen the first 15minutes of gameplay, Denyce appears in the exact same spot,
exact same time, this is gonna be tough!

@22 I'm sure they'll have some way to mess it up with the safe room, this is kind
of a different story so don't go thinking like that, you still had to go into the
room every so often anyways to get story to progress, which you need to do for this

Comment #25 by TakahashiDemon
Friday, October 07, 2011 @ 10:18:06 AM

Unless this is possible in Sandbox mode, this is gonna be a very hard one.

I'll be trying it, as the achievements in this game don't look that bad, no use
all weapon ones, I hated those as they were glitchy as hell, I might go for
the 72k kills in DR2 sometime this week.

Comment #26 by TakahashiDemon
Friday, October 07, 2011 @ 10:22:30 AM

Also, the babysit co-op won't work, yous both need to be in the same place, and
yous both need to go into the safe room each time to make sure you progress
through story, which leaves more room for that to mess up on you.

Comment #27 by Hooker88
Friday, October 07, 2011 @ 02:02:54 PM

They could have made this achievement so much better by adding on simple task.

"Have Denyce attack and damage Sgt Boykin...then make you a sandwich"

Wednesday, October 19, 2011 @ 08:54:53 PM

She goes up in the elevator with you if she is in the hotel. You have to leave her outside. However, when I go up by myself after leaving her outside, the game keeps freezing on the loading screen. I'm gonna try leaving her in the Uranus Zone.

that Denyce loses healwhen you get to the heli in case 6 just leave survivors in royal flush plaza take some quickstep and run to the hotel. have some extra health and when you get to winch just stand next to and get knock down while you spam the b button only retreating to heal. if you mess up restarting the check point will put you back to when you enter the hotel.

Comment #45 by Jenrai
Sunday, January 22, 2012 @ 06:26:37 AM

... Tell her to hide by the table and chairs on the roof of the hotel. If you're in the center by the winch they won't even glance at her, much less shoot her.

I hit 100% and sent my game back to gamefly. Sorry for anybody I missed, I did help 20+ people get the achievements so I'd say it was a pretty good run.

@ Jamesb97 F41L3D L1F3 is an appropriate name for you because you do indeed fail at life.

Saturday, August 04, 2012 @ 11:42:23 AM

Was a pain but fairly easy. Just carry a lot of food with you to give her. Don't give her any meat, diary, or alcohol if you're going for the Purewal achievement at the same time.

Comment #56 by DJMikey80
Friday, September 07, 2012 @ 03:32:44 AM

#55 What nutter would do this and Purewal achievement at the same time!! You need health or Denyce and you need it to badly to limit yourself to just OJ..

Before anyone asks OJ is the only healing item worth a damn, when you can't use Milk, Coffee Creamer, Meat or Alcohol!!

Where am i supposed to make Denyce wait when i'm going to stop TK's escape on top of the Fortune Hotel Roof, because after doing that Anyone on TOP of the roof, automatically is transported to the Safe Room. Including denyce. Would i make her wait outside the Elevator up to the roof? That seems like the most logical place.

TK fight on hotel roof made EASY.
first make sure you got the protoman shield/cannon thing, have juice book, and quickstep, plus juice or whatever to heal denyce after.
bring denyce with you to the hotel, kill all the thugs at the elevator, now take denyce back to royal flush and lock her in the maintenance room right near the car, roys mart has OJ if you need some for you or her.
now take the quickstep and get to the roof t the TK fight, when the fight starts the copter is already set to be hit, use the 5shots at a time from the cannon, two hits of this can be done before the chopper even makes its first fly around. then once back at safe house run back out to royal flush and go heal and continue to end.
when i did this she lost maybe 1/8th lifebar, i was still under the effects of

Screw this! No way will I ever be able to keep her alive for the whole damn game! Might be possible for other players but I'm not that good a player to keep her alive that long! Ridiculous achievement and for only 20G?!

Tuesday, November 26, 2013 @ 07:25:22 AM

Ok, I'm going to make a deal with anyone who reads this.

I've just finished up 'Alpha vs Omega'. I have a save on the roof of the RF Plaza when the military shows up, with 5 survivors (including Denyce), all armed with Six Shooters. They can easily take out Boykin in ten seconds. I am happy to take anyone through this part if you still need this achievement.

BUT...I expect you to have the courtesy to help me out with something I need to get as well. My Gt is [B]Helios007[/B]. Send me a message on Live and we'll sort something out.
