Dead Rising 2

Dead Rising 2 Achievements

Big Spender

Spend $6,000,000 in Fortune City.  

After starting the single player game, make a save, quit and start playing some multiplayer. Money gained in multiplayer can be transferred to an existing single player save file, so while you're getting your multiplayer achievements, you'll be working this achievement as well.

Chances are you're not completely done with this after your multiplayer madness, so I'll list the quickest and unfortunately also the most boring method.

Research your gambling skills by gathering all 3 magazines:

  • Ragazines in Royal Flush Plaza
  • Stan's Large Print Books and Magazines in Palisades Mall 2nd floor
  • Shamrock Casino on the Silver Strip behind the bar

Keep your 3 magazines in your inventory and make your way to the big pink slot machine in Slot Ranch Casino. Push the 1000$ button, wack a zombie while you wait, and you should be raking in money fairly fast.

Once you have your 6 Million, be sure to spend some cash on various items around the shops.

Things you need to buy/do for other achievements:

  • Buy SUV Keys for 2 million at the Silver Strip pawnshop
  • Spend approx. 1 million at the fortune teller at the Silver Strip to obtain a hidden combo card

You can spend the rest as you see fit.

Easiest way I know of to get the cash is to play poker with the three survivors and when you win you get $1million

pick up the gambling magazines at ragazines (royal flush plaza second floor) and stan's large print books and magazines (palisades plaza second floor) and play the giant slots at the slot ranch casino. this will increase your chance of winning on these slots dramatically and will increase the amount you win from regular slots quite a bit.

The best way i found to do it, which alot of people do.
It's VERY time consuming. and annoying.
but you get the 3 'Gambling' Magazines (Look it up on the internet, im not sure of the exact locations)
and you go to the Slot Ranch casino. You'll find some big pink slot machine game where you can bet '$100' or '$1,000'
Just bet the 1,000 every time. and every so often you should win big money.

Then aftre i had money, i went and got all the vehicles.
-SUV ($2,000,000)
-Chopper ($1,000,000)
-Sports Car ($500,000)

and then bought the Metal Boots ($2,000,000)

by then i just had it. you should have it cause of the dang slot machine lol

@hero gamer

yea TIR is a bitch a lot of the time for me. 80% of the time I get lost connection to host. good thing is i suppose whatever matches you've completed up to the d/c you keep the money. even if it might only be 10k :/

I enjoy TIR to much for some reason, nothing is more satisfying than grinding
a zombie up and re-juicing him into a giant face for money. XD
Although I would enjoy not having to lose cc every now and then but so far
I've had fairly stable connections :)

My buddy has this for the ps3 and he showed me using the "hacker" flashlight plus computer you get lots of money if you use this on the slots and atm. I only watched for a few mins but the atm in one use put out $10,000. i sent the game back to gamefly so i cant see if it works for xbox. But im sure this could work.

The giant slot machine in was pretty easy with the 3 gambling books. The rewards are as follows for that machine if you use max bet.

1 Bar - 1k
2 Bars - 2k
3 Bars - 5k
Cherry - 10k
7 - 25k
Diamond - 50k
$ - 100k
Heart = Wild

The magazines have no impact on the big slot machine. The prize is already
at a set number.

Dead Rising Wiki also has another, more reliable method. (Requires Co-op)
Have a friend grab both Bargaining Magazines (I don't know the locations, sorry) and save (offline). Have him join your game and then drop both magazines. He quits without saving and then joins again and drops the magazines again until you're full. (At least 11 inventory slots are required for you to gain money.) Once you have 11 or 12 of these, go to a Pawn Shop and buy whatever you like. You should get 120 or 140% off the price of the item, so that you actually gain 20-40% of the item's price. I think the Knight Boots are the priciest item, so they might be fastest, but you could also buy lots of LMGs and let your friend kill zombies endlessly as a thank you lol.

TIR would be the easiest way even if you lose like someone said you're almost guarenteed to get 60k.

Comment #26 by RaitheNinja

Yeah getting TIR groups though is a pain the slot seems more reliable if you cant do the bargaining exploit.

boots 2 mil
roadster 0.5 mil
SUV 2mil
Chopper 1mil
fortune teller 1mil
that is 6.5 mil right there

using the books to reduce the costs doesnt get you ANY closer to this achievment since the cheevo is to SPEND 6 million.

Comment #28 by tayboone

@27 It helps get you the money to spend. Get rid of the books then spend the money and you should get it.

I swear front kicking that big pink slot machine made me win more, for a little while. I was going for a zombie, but it looked like he hit the machine, and "25PP" came out. Could just be luck, but I think I'll keep doing it (I only had time to win enough for the SUV so far).

Also if zombies aren't bugging you too much, you might spin one of the smaller machines while the bigger one is spinning. I won a couple thousand from the machine to the left occasionally.

* 22 has it right. Using this method i got so much money (at level 50 i had 12 slots). I bought

16 Zombrex doses.

Knight boots for 2. Million

Red SUV Hummer for 2 million.

Chopper for one million

Sports car for 500,000.

1 million to the fortune teller machine for a card.

The two books are found ontop of the Hamburger feifdom roof in food court. The other is on the roof of americana casino. After you buy what you want drop all books and keep buying the SUV keys. Boom achievement. I had 10 million left after buying everything.

continued by roof i mean above you. Climb ontop of two vending machines to get ontop of Hamburger Feifdom. Go to BBQ Shack in Americana. Go upstairs and look for some light fixtures to jump on to. follow them to a ledge that has a dose of Zombrex, toy bunny, and the other barganing magazine. This is legit guys.
