Dead Rising 2 Achievements

Head Trauma

20
Use every type of melee weapon on a zombie.

It is not required to kill them, hitting them will suffice.

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.

Take note of the following items and ensure you find these while doing the relevant missions/cases.

Unique items:

  • Giant Pink Chainsaw - 'Here Comes The Groom' side mission
  • Katana - Case 4-1
  • Magician's sword - 'The World's Most Dangerous Trick' side mission
  • Military Case - Starting from Case 5, hard to miss boxes though.
  • Trophy - 'Two for Company' side mission.

You can find a detailed walkthrough here. You can also check out the video below for some help.

Nice! Has it all gotta be in one go though? The 'Explosive Temper' works over multiple goes I think but does this?

Stuffed bears are novelty items

You forgot the Money Case and Shopping Valuables.

You can get the Money Case from either Janus or Woodrow (kill them).

You receive the Shopping Valuables when you rescue Erica, Rosa, and Bessie. I'm pretty sure they keep reappearing where you found them.

Pay careful attention to the ad board. That one got me because, when you read it, you might think you got it when you really got the sandwich board or the square sign. It's a pretty nondescript advertisement that it might slip your mind.

Incidentally, these items don't need to be in your inventory to get the achievement. I ended up using a paddle on some zombies, hit the ad board, and it konked out a zombie. Got the achievement without ever touching the ad board.

You can get the money case during Workers Compensation right near Stuart and Brittany or on the hotel roof after Case 5-2 The Getaway.No sense killing a survivor who gives you money.

Money case doesn,t count. Neither does the Peace Art, and Vaccumm Cleaner.
Acheivement popped up at the Bingo Ball Cage

P.S. You have to use EVERY TYPE of attack on a zombie, so hold X, and tap X
with the same weapon

You do not have to use every type of attacks.

Just got this achievement and I know I hadn't.

This was a bitch to do! I actually found it more laborious than Zombie Genocide Master for some reason.

Use that map. Has pretty much everything in the freaking game marked down, right down to the trash bins just for spoiled food. Can even mark things off.

P.S. Hate this achievement.

This was one of the last achievements I had left since early 2011, a lot easier than everyone is making it seems. Novelty weapons were worse. Make sure to be playing the main missions if you're going for this in one playthrough

I've done this achievement twice and still it hasn't popped. I've used all the weapons from psychos and even used items that weren't on the list and others that were said wasn't needed and still no achievement. *sighs*

Wait, wait, wait. For the water cooler one (at 3:54 of the video) - you have to pick the water bottle back up after you've thrown the water cooler itself?! I thought/figured the water bottle would've been counted as one. That MUST be the one I'm missing/the reason why my achievement hasn't popped yet!

@26, it wont carry over. if you die, you lose all the progress you did after the last save.
