Is that all that magazine does?

"Is that all"? That magazine is a Godsend when you're going for saving 50+ survivors in one playthrough. Not having to carry anyone, except mermaid girl, is a huge time saver when you've got multiple people following you and one of them needs carrying.

i did this but slightly different

 

saved denyce then went to snowflake then headed back to katey but

only took snowflake in (lt + Y at the back wall and snowflake should get the door icon any way)

 

then got the next 2 then got the call for chad and doris putting me at 5

 

while getting doris and chad got the call for esther went to get her then went to larry

 

now at 7 i went to rebbeca and she gave me the achieve (glad she counts)

 

allso to help i gave them weapons

 

they accept hand guns found them on the cops

I tryed something just abit diffent

 

I saved both Doctor and the Tiger and sent them to safe house and started fresh Right after giveing Kat her shot at 7am

 

Saved the two right outside the Safehouse and then went for chad and doris outside

then went for the Old lady in the toy store

I got Call for Jack and the Old man

Went and Got Lenny in Casino Yucatam

Then got Jack and old man and Bing Got the Achevement

 

and I did have the case "Alive on Location" during all this so the idea that she counts as one 8 slots held no water in my run had no problems doing it this way

 

Edit: on my way back to Safe house near bathrooms by safehouse hall I got the "Meet the Contestants" Call so that also didnt count as a Slot *yes I still have 8 ppl with me*

this is totally not working like the OP has laid out. My game seems hell bent on NOT generating the Welcome to the Family message >_<

 

also went on somes suggestion and killed the lush woman because that one likes to pop up in a timely fashion.

 

Instead I keep getting messages that lead to psychopath battles (Meet the Contestants and Chuck the Role Model. I did cases 1-1, 1-2, 1-3 and waited for 1-4 to expire to try to free up space for Welcome to the Family.

 

I guess getting this achievement isn't in the cards for me (at least on this playthrough) maybe I can still get the rescue 50 survivors one (or are there a significant amount of survivors that can only be rescued further along in the story)

Alright guys I just got this. And let me explain how I did it. Most of it I used from the startpost but there are a few issues with that guide.

 

1.

I saved Denyce, got the Zombrex, killed Ted, tamed Snowflake and then gave Katey Zombrex. Your game gets saved.

2.

I grabbed LaShawndra and Gordon.

3.

Headed out to the strip, did the Pawn Shop mission and went for Chad. He followed me and I grabbed Doris.

4.

By now I got the call for Esther. I pointed my survivors in a shop near the safehouse and went to get her. I dropped Esther off at the safehouse (not the others!).

5.

By now I did get the call 'Welcome to the family' and headed to Shanks via the Hot Excitorama shop on the strip.

6.

After that I headed to Yucatan and grabbed Lenny.

7.

Headed to the hotel for case 1:2.

8.

Achievement unlocked, apparantly Cassandra counts.

9.

Then I headed to the Americana casino for the lushious lady (drunk chick), carried her and the other 7 survivors to the safehouse.

 

Now why did I do it this way? I didn't get the call in the first try for 'Welcome to the family' but I did get lushious lady.

That's why I dropped off Esther at my second attempt. But apparantly Cassandra counted and unlocked the achievement for me. But I still escorted 8 to the safe house including the drunk chick.

 

Hope this helps!

 

This works perfectly. I think talking to Sullivan about the maintenance key even if you already have it might be the key to calls coming in. I know in my other attempts I didn't talk to him and never got the Pawn Shop call or Welcome to the Family. When I did talk to Sullivan, I got the Pawn Shop call and Welcome to the Family almost right away.

Hi there,

 

I wrote this in reponse to a thread on here but feel it is a much easier method not requiring any luck to have Janus spawn at the right time or having to beat the three people at cards. I have explained everything in more detail and only aim to help.

 

If you have any questions or comments please ask and I will be happy to help.

 

http://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/969/UPkmawo=.jpgDead Rising 2 Come On! Follow Me! Guidehttp://www.xbox360achievements.org/images/achievements/969/UPkmawo=.jpg

 

Very easy to just do at the start off the game. I would suggest being at least level 20+ for health and attack benefits.

 

Step 1 Preparation, Elimination and Tiger Salvation:

 

After rescuing Denyce and before you give Katey her first Zombrex shot you should have the best part of 3 hours spare. We will need to utilise these precious few hours. First thing we want to do is grab the Fireaxe from the safe room leave and just after the first Maintenance room collect the Sledgehammer. Combine these for an awesome weapon capable of doing Ted over in a short time. We will be travlling through the Slot Ranch casino than to the Food Court to the Yutacan Casino (Y.C) which really isn't far. Just read blow as we will grab a few things along the way

 

Just as a note in the Slot Ranch casino you will go past the Stage with the Stature of Liberty hands on them, go back stage and around to the right, climb the boxes to the right of the maintenance room and follow them around for a quick easy free Zombrex shot.

 

As soon as you enter the Food Court look left and go into the Wild West restaurant. When in the W.W.R enter the kitchen and grab the two steaks on the counter. Now continue on your way to the Y.C grabbing any food you want on the way.

 

Enter the Y.C and a few steps in you will get a cut scene. After this kill Ted as quickly as possible (there is a machine gun on top of the Aztec statue thing if you want extra help)

 

Ted is a really easy psycho and you should be fine. Just watch out for Snowflake. Tame snowflake by throwing steaks at her just before she charges or leaving them on the floor and dodging her attacks. She will need to eat 3 steaks before she chills unless you hit her at all which means she will need a few more to fill her hp and tame her. You should have two already and to get three more (I said to get the extra two in the W.W.R as it just makes it easier) check the rocks to the left inside Snowflakes glass stage where the game places you after the initial cutscene of Ted and Snowflake.

Step 2:

 

Once tamed (achievement too if you have not already got it) return to the safe room with Snowflake and make sure you examine Snowflake in the room with Katey for an easy PP boost and an achievement for giving Katey a gift if you have not already done so.

 

Wait around/heal/save/make a weapon until the Katey needs the Zombrex. Give it to her and start first real mission.

 

Step 3 Lashawndra and Gordan:

 

Leave the safe room and open the doors to the mall. In front of you you will see Lashawndra, talk to her than collect her bf Gordan in the nearby shop on the right of her.

 

Step 4 - 2 Survivors with you and collcting Esther:

 

You will now have L and G following you. Stacey should have text you about Esther the confused old lady in the toy shop. Waypoint and get her. Esther requires you to Carry her but tbh it makes zombie dodgin all the more easier. The Zombies don't seem to grab you as much with a survivor in your arms.

 

Step 5 - 3 Survivors with you and collecting Chad and Doris:

After Esther is yours take your survivors down the Silver Strip where you should see Chad (shotgun wielding old guy). Ignore him initially and head to the 'Lost' text message waypoint. Talk to Doris and than go back and talk to Chad. Chad will follow you and is your key to Doris joining. Once they have joined make your way back into the Yutacana Casino.

 

Step 6 - 5 Survivors with you and collcting Lenny:

 

Once in the Y.C head to the back and into the office (door with EMPLOYEES ONLY on it) and talk to Lenny. Lenny joins because you got rid of Snowflake. Whilst back in the Y.C climb up the aztec statue thing where the LMG is and now spawned is another Zombrex. This Zombrex doesn't spawn during the Ted fight for some reason. So now you have 2 extra doses within the first 12 hours - nice!

 

Step 7 - 6 Survivors with you and collecting Jack and Kenneth:

 

Leave the Y.C from where you entered having now recieved the 'Welcome to the family' text. At this point I personally did not have this so instead I went ahead and did the missions 1-1,1-2 and 1-3. The survivors will not go through anything hazardous so don't worry. After I finished mission 1-3 I got the Welcome to the family text.

 

I entered the area Jack and Kenneth are in and faced the door and set a way point on it so I didn't have to drag the crew through the mall just go back on myself. Jack is great too as he has the Knights helmet which you can gain off him during the Ante Up! call a.k.a strip poker.

 

Anyways speak to Jack at the back and after a short conversation you should have them join. Bang achievement unlocked in the easiest manner which doesn't require you to give any items to anyone, sets you up in the best possible starting position and gives massive PP. Also case 1-4 finishes with you in the safe room so you can start Case 2 with a perfectly clean slate ready for any achievements you want in the rest of the playthrough.

 

In short:

 

Collct Steaks from W.W.R And go to Y.C.

 

Kill Ted and Tame Snowflake.

 

Go to the safe room and give Katey the Zombrex.

 

Collect Lashawndra and Gordan in front of you as you leave safe room.

 

Collect Esther - Should have call by now, grab her.

 

Then collect Doris and Chad (Lost radio text) on your way to collecting Lenny in the office of Yucutan casino (only available after taming/killing Snowflake)

 

Get Lenny

 

Then you can either do the case 1-1.1-2.1-3 which I did as I was unnecessarily worried bout time on it. Or wait until you get the call for Welcome to the Family.

 

Collect Kenneth and Jack and pop goes the achievement.

 

I hope everyone finds this helpful and please any feedback would be kind. If you have questions I will be happy to answer.

 

Thank you :drunk

 

this really works

EDIT: (added 10/13/2010) I have been keeping track of every single survivor that me and my coop partner picked up while going for the 50 survivors and last night I got proof positive that Rebecca does NOT count towards the "Hero of Fortune City" achievement (50 survivors), but she DEFINITELY does count towards "Come On! Follow Me!" (escort 8 survivors).

 

(My original post...)

I know that this has been mentioned already in this thread, but I want to just put it out there... 100% confirmation that Rebecca DOES count as a Survivor for the "Come On! Follow Me!" achievement.

(Disclaimer: This post is in no way meant to say that this is a better way to get the achievement "Come On! Follow Me!", it is only meant as confirmation that Rebecca does count as a survivor for this achievement)

 

Last night my coop partner and I went for this achievement right at the beginning of our Survivor run. We did not get rid of Ted before giving Katey her first Zombrex, instead we waited and used Snowflake as one of our 8 survivors (I vote Snowflake the best coop partner ever... she absolutely DESTROYS zombies :-).

EDIT: If you go to fight Ted and save Snowflake with other survivors in tow, keep in mind that survivors can NOT open doors. Take them immediately to the maintenance closet in the Yucatan Casino after the cutscene for Ted/Snowflake (make sure to close the door behind the survivors :-), THEN go fight Ted without having to worry about your survivors getting killed by Snowflake :-)

 

So we had the following survivors in tow:

(Listed in the order we picked them up, plus we did have the Leadership magazine found in the "One Little Duck Bingo" building off of the Silver Strip to help with Ester Alwin... we got it right after we were done getting Chad and Doris from the "Lost" side mission since we were in the Strip already)

1. Lashawndra Dawkins (no call - missable)

2. Gordon Dawkins (no call - missable)

3. Chad Elchart ("Lost" side mission)

4. Doris Elchart ("Lost" side mission)

5. Ester Alwin ("Short Sighted" side mission)

6. Snowflake (no call - Psycho battle with Ted, then we "tamed" her)

7. Lenny Monney (no call - get right after taming or killing Snowflake)

 

With these survivors in tow we went to do Case 1-2 "Alive on Location" to meet Rebecca Chang. Once we talked to Rebecca during Case 1-2 and she joins us, then she starts running to the Arena security room... POP! went the achievement ("Come On! Follow Me!").

Fantastic guide,it worked great,also i like to add that my first attempt,welcome to the family never came up,so i reloaded my save at the safe house to try again,on my second run the every mans garbage scoop appeared as soon as i left the safehouse,on my first run this scoop never appeared,so as i was heading for the lost scoop i completed every mans garbage,i rescued the two people outside when back inside,rescued the old lady,then went to save lenny as soon as i went into the slot ranch casino,welcome to the family popped up,so i think as long as you get the every mans garbage scoop and finish it,welcome to the family will appear.

I think doing the case files you mentioned are very important, I didnt do them and ended up not getting the Welcome to the Family side mission, also didnt get the other one.

 

Also, you shouldn't save Vikki from Brandon, I tried this to see if I could get any clear slots for survivors but since Psychos count and the contestants side mission should still be there, you wont get another mission pop up, unless you kill some members of your team, or kill the contestant, which is harder with survivors with you as he aims for them instead of you.

 

I'll be trying this tomorrow or later again, this time doing the case files, although Im confused, people say Rebecca counts as a survivor so does that mean I have to kill her off to get this side mission to appear?

 

EDIT: I just retried, took an even easier route than the OP did, this way is glitch proof (eg. you do not need to worry about the Welcome to the Family not popping up).

 

1. Get Denyce - DO NOT save her yet.

2. Kill Ted and Snowflake, Denyce should be able to take it, heal her afterwards if needed.

3. Get Lenny.

4. Go to Safe house, making sure NONE of the survivors have the door icon over their heads when you enter, also make sure its 7am, or near 7am, you dont want to be going in too soon and them dying because you left them out too long, give Katey her zombrex.

5. Get the couple that are in the mall when you exit, one is straight in front of you, when other is in shop to your right.

6. Message "Lost" will pop up, go get Chad and his girl, talk to Chad first as the girl won't follow you until she sees him.

7. Message "Shortsighted" should pop up now, go get the old lady, carry her.

8. Now do the story cases 1-2 (once you talk to Rebecca in this one, the achievement will pop), then case 1-3, then case 1-4 as that lands you back to the safe house where you should be headed for the survivor PP points.

 

Thank you so much! Worked like a charm. :)

Well I tried this achievement the way the person who posted recommended but it did not work. I have confirmed, after several tries, that you will not get any missions if it means that more than 8 people will be available at once. So if you have 6 people it will not bring up the welcome to the family mission because counting the story line mission with rebecca that would put you over 8. The best way to do this achievement is to save Denyce at the beginning along with snowflake, but only return snowflake to the safe house. upon leaving the safe house pick denyce back up and also grab Lashawndra and Gordan. This gives you 3. Then leave and head towards the silver strip and walk towards the arena. Here you will pick up chad and dorris. that puts you at 5. by now the mission where you get esther will be available. go ahead and go pick her up and that puts you at 6. Now head for the Yukitan Casino and pick up Lenny. thats now 7 survivors in your group. From here just head towards the Hotel to do the mission and as soon as you speak with Rebecca you will get the achievement. She counts as a survivor. This is confirmed now and is by far the quickest and easiest way to get this achievement. One tip I would suggest is to take the shot gun away from chad. this dude is reckless and will cap anyone in the way of his shooting. i hope this helps clear up any confusion.

Got this achievement today. Followed the OPs directions and it didn't work. Tried a few times and finally got it by doing everything in OP up till Step 4. Went with the Lost scoop and then waited until 11AM hit before getting the old lady (once 11 AM hit, Welcome to the Family scoop showed up). Then made my way to Yucatan Casio to pick up Lenny and then finally Kenneth and Jack. After both followed, achievement popped up.

 

I believe Welcome to the family does not show up because of the you can't have more than 8 survivors with you like a few on here have mentioned (that is if you have Lawshandra + Gordan, Doris + Chad, Esther, Lenny before 11AM).

At the beginning it is very random after you get Lashawndra, gordon, Lenny, Esther, Chad, Doris, The drunk chick. They always appeared in that order and I got no notice for anybody else, and the pawn shops never opened. I had to find the guy on the strip, and he only appeared right before I failed Case 2-2. His mission never showed up. After I talked to him I got the call to pick up the guy who needed zombrex. As soon as i picked him up the achievement popped. But I did notice that on day 3 the game had the mermaid, the comedy club, Bibi, and the guy that talks alot in the palisades mall, missions available at once.

 

So if I didn't get before I could have got it then. I also picked up jasper and the poker crew, for a total of 12 survivors following me at once. It may have been a glitch but that is what happened in my game.

Worked perfectly after having trouble with Welcome to the family. Thank you very much!!

I tried the first method but it doesn´t worked. After the fifth survivor i dont get any calls. I made everything like in the guide. So i tried to bring these survivors in the savehouse and see whats happen. So after they are safe the calls started again. I killed the fat psycho with the tiger but i dont get the call for Lenny. And i wasn´t in the casino.

 

Now i have 6 people again and again ... no calls for survivors anymore. My sixth person was the women in the toilett with the psycho. I am now at case 2-2 and even dont get the call for the pawn shop.

 

What is my mistake?

Thanks, this worked perfectly. I also didn't get the "Welcome to the Family" call when trying it the way retroboy posted.

I tried it OP's way, and Rebecca DID NOT count as a survivor for me. I had Lashawndra, Gordon, Ester, Chad, Doris, and Lenny, and put Ester away and ended up getting Lush-ious Lady to show. I grabbed her and went ahead and met Rebecca. Achievement did not pop... Not pleased with this.

 

I also didn't get the info for the pawn shops because I skipped the talk with the cop in the safe room, I was in a hurry to get this done, was probably my downfall.

 

I tried to do it with Bibi and her 3, the mermaid, Andy the emo, and waited for the call for two's company, but that never happened. The only thing I had hanging was Ante Up. I'm thinking that screwed me there. Only thing that came up then was the 2 magicians, so I turned in the 6 I had... NOW two's company shows up.

 

Only hope for this playthrough is to get Family Feud, Two's Company, and the Tape it or Die crew. Ante up is still hanging, and I really really don't want to or need to do that one, I didn't save fat boy with the helmet (Welcome to the family... never showed) so I have no reason. So I'm hoping that the Tape it or Die crew shows up, they are the SOLE reason I'm still doing this playthrough I am on. If I don't get the call, I'll just have to grit my teeth, take the 4 back, and get the call then. I can't miss the last 2 combo cards, I'm so close.

 

Then, it's on to more mundane tasks. Joy.

There is no call for Lenny. You just have to go to the office and talk to him.

Let me just check the math on this one...

Lashawndra and Gordon = 2

Chad and Doris = 2

Lenny = 1

...add those together and you have 5 survivors.

 

Ester = 1, but then you "put her away" which I would assume means you dropped her off at the safe house, so you are still at 5.

 

Kristin (Luscious Lady) = 1 + the 5 above = 6 survivors in tow when you went to meet Rebecca.

 

Adding Rebecca would only make 7 total, not 8.

 

I only bring this up because Rebecca DEFINITELY counts. My achievement popped as soon as she started running to take me to the Arena Security Room. Both me and my coop partner got it this way (see my posting about this above in this thread... very bottom of page 2). She DEFINITELY counts.

 

EDIT: Did it again last night with another person and this was the first time we started playing together... Rebecca definitely counts for the "Escort 8 Survivors" (but she does NOT count as a survivor for the "save 50 or 10 survivors" achievements).
