Dead Rising 2

Dead Rising 2 Achievements

He hasn't covered wars...

Use every type of firearm on a zombie.

This achievement requires you to actually kill the zombie with the firearms.

As all other multi-playthrough achievements, there have been reports of it not unlocking when it should. Again, try to contain the requirements in one playthrough, to be on the safe side.

  • Assault Rifle - Can be bought in Pawn Shops, appearance seems to be random
  • BFG - Combo Weapon, refer to ‘Duct Tape FTW’
  • Handgun - Various locations
  • LMG - Can be bought in Pawn Shops, appearance seems to be random
  • Merc Rifle - Only found during storyline cases
  • Shotgun - Weapon Shop in Palisades Mall
  • Six Shooter - Only obtainable after killing the psycho from WWJWD?
  • Sniper Rifle - Weapon Shop in Palisades Mall

A walkthrough can be found here.

best place to find the assault rifle is in the food court. Jump up on the vending machines and to climb up into the storage area on top. There is an assault rifle sitting on the Joe's Pizzeria Awning

BFG is on the north west most raised area of the Underground, between the Americana Casino and the Royal Flush Plaza access points.

I had trouble with this achievement, I had to go back and pick up the six shooter and try again -- the gun dropped by the psycho didn't work for me.

I didn't get the achievement right away either, what worked for me was to save just before WWJWD and run around gathering all the guns together in my inventory at once and then just running through them again making sure to kill a zombie with the gun before moving on and I ended with the BFG and I got the achievement that way (I didn't have to kill a zombie with the BFG).

LMG on top of the giant slot machine in the Yucatan, next to the Zombrex, in case anyone needed a location for one of those

It has to be done in on playthrough, I thought I'd used them all but then I remembered I died without saving after killing the psycho with the six shooter

Hey guys. Just dropping in take make a minor correction if no one minds.
"Merc Rifle - Only found during storyline cases" This isn't entirely true. Yes there are a lot more to be found through storyline progression but you can also find one in the security room in the Atlantica Casino. Hope this helps. :)

Says Merc assault rifle can only be found during story cases. That's not true, there one sitting on the desk in the Atlantica casino security room, in the back room, every time you enter.

I have felt that I had done enough to get this achievement a while back, but I didn't. And recently I have come back to complete this game. Upon noticing I didn't have this ach. I looked up this guide and followed it and had all 8 guns total in my inventory. I saved and then fired all of the guns one after the other and didn't pop the ach. If anyone could tell me why or give me advice I would appreciate the help, Thanks!

Yay, another bugged achievement -_-

It's not a bugged achievement. I just unlocked it by using every gun on the list. Actually killing the Zombie. The B.M.G. WILL KILL the "special zombies". My achievement unlocked after I killed a special zombie with the B.M.G.. Which made his head Glad I could clear that up for everyone.

Just so there's no confusion it's the regular B.M.G. And not the Super B.M.G. Which the guide would lead you to use. The Super B.M.G. Is the B.M.G. Combined with the amp speaker using the workbench.
