Dead Rising 3

Dead Rising 3 Achievements

Nightmare Master

Complete chapter 7 in Nightmare Mode.

While on Nightmare mode you need to complete the last chapter prior to the credits. Unlike the standard story mode, you will be timed, so you must focus more on completing story missions and getting the items most important for finishing the game.

You can either do Nightmare Mode first, or wait until you complete Story Mode and turn Nightmare Mode into basically a New Game +.

Note: You can also get this by joining a friends game if they are in Nightmare Mode chapter seven and completing it with them without doing the first 6 Chapters yourself.

This is interesting... does this mean I have to complete all the previous missions on Nightmare up to chapter 7 or can I pick chapter 7 only?

What about joining a co-op game at the very end of level six and completing level seven in co-op to make it easier and faster. Probably won't work but here's hoping

I've heard thats the standart Dead Rising mode with a timer from DR 1&2.
All i hope it's not like the endurance mode from DR1 :|

This one is pretty easy, not all that hard to do on nightmare, timing is a little more stretched than standard, but all the same, easy if you want to speed through the story!

It's worth noting that you don't have to do this in a single run like the Survival modes in the previous games. You can save, it's just that you can only save using the toilets. Very quick and easy to do if you just focus on doing the yellow case missions and ignore everything else. I'd actually rank it easier than normal Dead Rising 1 & 2.
Pick up some good combo weapons. I like to keep a few Jazz Hands for clearing zombies, a few Boom Canons for slow bosses, a few ZARs and a bit of food.

I did this in 2-3 hours at lvl 50 with all the possible upgrades. It is very easy, use lots of vehicles to get to places faster and also have your entire inventory full of the "Spread Shot" gun, I think it's called that at least (The combo of lead pipe + assault rifle) and it's a brease.

Pretty easy to complete after you've made a run through normal mode, got most of the blueprints and leveled a bit.

I just did this with a buddy with getting less than 10k kills in just a little over 2 hours and 30 minutes without the overtime. But regret not playing all the way through for the Megan man gun

This is a cakewalk as long as you're fully leveled/upgraded. I've been using Split Shots to get through crowds and Rollerhawgs to get around and I got through over half the story in around 2 hours.

How the FUCK are you supposed to get this when the game is unplayable?! It's impossible to get past chapter 6 due to a game breaking glitch that prevents you from continuing! How are more people not talking about this and how the fuck hasn't it been fixed yet?! Fuck you Capcom!
