When you where all 4 pieces at once your health is doubled, and just like in
Ghouls 'n Ghosts as you take damage the armor chips away leaving you in 
nothing but your underwear.

Unlockable             How to unlock
Full Beard Moustache - In the back of the store "Moe's Migitations" in Royal 
                       Flush Plaza.

Skip the entire opening sequence of gameplay on a NG+:
Quite simply, if you skip the opening cinematic, you will also skip the Terror
Is Reality gameplay section and the subsequent gameplay section all the way up
to arriving at the emergency bunker.

Trophy Hint: Father of the Year Achievement:
Collect these gifts for the Father of the Year Achievement.

1.Robot Bear 
2.Bag Of Marbles 
3.Beach Ball 
4.Stick Pony 
5.Gaint Stuffed Donkey 
6.Gaint Stuffed Elephant

8.Water Gun 
9.Gaint Stuffed Rabbit 
10.A Tiger / To tame the tiger you have to give it steak or ribs. 
11.Funny Painting / To get this painting you have to be on case 4 mission Art 

Six Shooter:
Once you've progressed far enough into the game to have unlocked the Six Shooter
revolver (by defeating the Cowboy Security Guard Psychopath in the South Plaza) 
it's a good idea to carry his weapon around, which can be found on the sawing 
board he dies on. You can only have one at any time like all Psychopath weapons,
so if you try to exit and re-enter the area to get an extra Six Shooter, you won't
find anything on there until you lose the one you're carrying (or that your Co-Op 
partner is carrying). This weapon is incredibly powerful, more so than any rifle 
other than the Sniper Rifle. And it also has a great rate of fire. With this weapon
you can easily take out most Psychopaths by simply corner shooting, or in some cases
just continually shooting them as most Psycho's will be stunned for a brief moment 
by each shot.

Easy "Tape It Or Die" achievement or trophy:
Find a zombie (usually in a crowd) with his hands in the air. Kill him to release 
the queen in a bottle, as in the original Dead Rising. Get a beer and go to the 
candy store. Take some jelly beans. Combine the jelly beans and beer to create 
nectar. Combine the nectar and the queen to unlock the achievement or trophy, as
well as a combo card.

Special Items:
Perform the following actions to unlock special items.

Champion's Jacket - Win a TIR Online episode 
TIR Helmet        - Earn $1,000,000 in TIR Online 
TIR Outfit        - Earn $5,000,000 in TIR Online 
Convicts          - Kill 10 psychopaths 
Hockey Mask       - Use every melee weapon to make a kill 
Tattered Clothes  - Kill 1,000 zombies with hand-to-hand
Convict Outfit    - Kill 10 psychopaths
Dealer Uniform    - Try on every piece of clothing in the game (not locker items).

Wheelchair Accessible:
Tired of carrying around survivors in your arms or on your back? Then just push a 
wheelchair up to them and wait for them to have a seat. You can then run back to 
the Safe House with ease. Just try not to hit too many zombies and walls or else 
the rider will fall out and the chair will break. Keep in mind, only 1 survivor 
can fit in the chair and even uninjured survivors can sit in it. 

Look At All That Juice:
Mix the following drinks to meet the requirements of the "Look At All That Juice"
Trophy/Achievement (Create and consume all mixed drinks in the game).

1. Orange + Orange = Nector 
2. Chilli + Chilli = Energizer 
3. Beer + Beer = Pain Killer 
4. Milk + Jellybeans = Ouick Step 
5. Beer + Cooking Oil = Randomizer 
6. Chilli + Ketchup = Repulse 
7. Ketchup + Ketchup = Spitfire 
8. Bacon + Bacon = Untouchable 
9. Jellybeans + Chilli = Zombait 

Easy PP:
In Fortune Park, follow the wall to the right of the Atlantica Casino and enter
the side door. Combine the dynamite and meat you find here for the Dynameat. 
Leave the building and head to the right. At the fireworks stand, climb to the 
top and use the fireworks to attract zombies. Jump down into the crowd and use 
the Dynameat, retreating quickly. You will get a ton of PP. Leave Fortune Park 
and return to make the items respawn. Repeat this to attain very high levels.

Tape It or DIE! Secret Achievement/Trophy:
Have you been wondering what that secret Achievement/Trophy is for? Just combine 
some Nectar (orange juice+orange juice at any blender) with a Queen Bee (start 
chopping zombies that slowly wave their arms about, grabbing at their necks) for
a at a maintenance bench for a "Wingman." Afterwards, watch your new friend pop 
zombie skulls.

Free Zombrex:
Having trouble getting Zombrex for your dear daughter? Fear no longer! Certain 
missions give out Zombrex for rescuing survivors and you can even find some sitting
around on high ledges.

1.Code Blue, Inside the Slot Ranch Casino: Behind the stage curtains there are
 some equipment boxes. Jump on them, then to the giant dice, and finally across
 the gap to claim your prize. You can easily see the Zombrex beforehand, but not
 jump to it, if you walk up the metal stairs.
2.Code Blue, Inside the Yucatan Casino: Go to the giant idol in the center and 
  simply jump up the conveniently stair-shaped sides until you reach the offering
  plate. There you'll find some Zombrex and a Light Machine Gun.
3.If you are finding it hard to come across some zombrex rather than buying it, 
  why not find it? If you check out the stage in Slot Ranch Casino head behind 
  the curtain and to your right side is some boxes. Carry on around towards the
  maintenance room behind the stage and climb the boxes to the right of the door
  as you face it. You will see a nice free bit of Zombrex on top of the highest 
  boxes. (Note: You cannot jump to the boxes from the overhead mez floor).
4.You can find some extra Zombrex in the underground tunnel after completing the
  "Ticket to Ride" mission. It is near the underground access ladder underneath 
  the Atlantica casino.
5.In Big Roy's Mart in Royal Flush Plaza (case related).
6.Go to the stairs in Bennie Jack's BBQ Shack in the Americana Casino and turn 
  right when going up the stairs to the second floor. Jump on the balcony and 
  then onto the closest light. Keep jumping across the lights until you reach 
  the end.
7.Backstage behind the curtain at Slot Ranch Casino. Climb up a stack of boxes 
  and speakers. Jump onto a smaller stack of boxes and speakers to find it.
8.Save the paramedic in the "Code Blue" mission. Bring the paramedic to Dean 
  ("Once Bitten" mission), and the paramedic will give Dean a free Zombrex.
9.On top of the tallest slot machine display in the middle of Yucatan Casino.
10.Defeat the Postal Worker (mission related) in Royal Flush Plaza.
11.Bring Richard (Hunger Pains) food and rescue him in the Silver Strip Diner.

Slot Machine Win:
If a slot machine has a pile of money in front of it, you can play it and win it
five times -- after that you will not be able to win again unless you return to
the map.

Secret and unlockables:

Suit of Armor :
Full Beard Moustache : In the back of the store "Moe's Migitations" in Royal 
                       Flush Plaza. 
Knight Armor         : Complete the game with the "S" ending.

Turn Dead Rising 2 into Left 4 Dead Credit: Thierry Nguyen

One helpful tactic for some particularly troubling Psychopaths and Case Files on 
Day 2 is to obtain at least three assault rifles (whether from Case 2-2 or Case 
3-1) and then rescue the band (mission name Rock Heroes). 

Dont take them to the Safe House right away give them your assault rifles, and 
you now have a squad of zombie-killers with unlimited ammunition. To make them 
even more effective, pick up the Leadership Magazine (which is found in the One
Little Duck Bingo in the Silver Strip, and enhances any survivors in your party)
while youre at it. 

This impromptu Left 4 Dead group is particularly great for certain Psychopaths 
in cases like Tastes Like Chicken and Everyone Knows Slappy (though, Here Comes
The Groom is actually a bit more difficult than tackling that case solo). After
finishing Tastes Like Chicken, you can try to equip the two survivors from that
case with even more assault rifles to give yourself a five-person fireteam. 

Even during story cases like Case 3-2 where you fight lots of Mercenaries, this
group works great.

Alternate endings:
Complete the indicated task to unlock the corresponding ending sequence. 

Ending A: Complete all cases, give Katey the Zombrex each time, do not give TK the 
          Zombrex before completing "The Facts". 
Ending B: Give Katey the Zombrex each time, starting at Case 6-2 allow the time to 
          advance until 7 a.m. on September 29, do not complete "The Facts". 
Ending C: Do not do the cases while giving Katey Zombrex each time, be in the 
          safehouse before the military arrives. 
Ending D: Be outside the safehouse when the military arrives. 
Ending F: Do not give Katey the Zombrex and be in the safehouse by the time the 
          military arrives. 
Ending S: Complete all cases, give Katey the Zombrex each time, give TK the Zombrex
          before completing "The Facts". 

Easy money:
Destroy an ATM machine. Each one will drop between $2,000 and $2,500.

* Find a slot machine that has see a pile of $100 in front of it. You can win on 
  that slot machine up to five times. Go to the map by entering any casino or the
  machines by the Sports Car in the Royal Flush Plaza. The machine will then give
  out winnings again. 

* Make sure you have at least $25,000 to $50,000 before doing this trick. Go to the 
Slot Ranch casino. On one of the walls is a Heart slot machine that has two buy in 
amounts ($100 and $1,000). Select $1,000. Keep playing this machine until you have
$6 million. It will not take very long. Then, buy as much as desired. The best 
combinations (hearts fill in for the third slot), three hearts are $100,000; two 
hearts and a dollar sign are $100,000; two hearts and a diamond are $50,000; and 
two hearts and a seven are $25,000.

Defeating Leon:
Get the motorbike from the front of the arena. Drive it to the fireworks store at
Silver Strip. Get rockets and ride the bike to the alley with the maintenance room.
Get a metal pipe and ride the bike to the rock canyon. Enter the maintenance room 
in the rocks and create a rocket launcher. Exit the door of the maintenance room 
and stand in the left side corner. Save the game. When Leon appears from the left
side, he will run into the wall. Shoot him with the rocket launcher and repeat 
until he has been defeated.

Achievement/Trophy Tip: Zombie Genocide Master:
First off you need $2,000,000 and the DRIVER magazine. It is found in BBQ Jacks by
the soda fountain. Next, buy the SUV key from pawnshop in Silver Strip. You find 
the SUV (Humvee) across the street in Shamrock Casino. Now, just drive around the
strip slaughtering zombies. With the Driver Mag, your SUV with last 3 times longer 
(4X4). When your SUV dies, enter a  Casino that makes you load. Come back out and 
your SUV will be back in Shamrock fully repaired. You get 4,000 zombie kills with 
each SUV and it only takes about 15 minutes (real time) to rack up 72,000.

Transporting survivors:
Instead of carrying survivors in your arms or your back, push a wheelchair up to
them and wait for them sit down. Note: They do not have to be injured. You can 
then run them back to the safehouse easily. Do not hit too many zombies or walls
or you will dump the survivor and the wheelchair will break.

Hidden Spit Move:
If you hold down the aim button, while unarmed, and press the throw or fire button,
your will spit at zombies. It doesn't damage them much, but it's a secret ranged 
weapons that's unlimited. 

ATM Hax0r:
If you have the "Hacker" item -- Flashlight and Computer Case -- You can double 
the money you receive from the ATM machine. Instead of $2,500 per Machine you will
get $5,000.

Spit attack:
Hold [Aim] while unarmed and press [Throw] or [Fire]. Although it will not do much
damage, it can be done an unlimited number of times.

Defeating Slappy:
Get one or two squirt guns from inside the toy shop where you fight Slappy. Shoot 
him with a squirt gun a few times. He will then struggle with his flamethrower, 
giving you a chance to attack him with a melee weapon (spiked bat or Defiler 
recommended) before taking cover again. Repeat the process until you defeat him.

Easy Zombie Genocide Master achievement or trophy:
Although it is a good idea to have the Driving magazine and the SUV, it will take
much longer than fifteen minutes. The best way to do this is to start a new game 
after you have purchased the SUV key. Go directly to the Americana casino to pick 
up the Driving magazine as soon as you get to leave the safehouse, then to the SUV.
Make one lap from the Yucatan casino to the Arena and back, which should average 
about 1,000 kills per pass. Go into the Yucatan and immediately back out to respawn;
otherwise they begin to really thin out. You must keep this up for the full 72 in-
game hours which requires about nine real hours. You can save and break it down 
into multiple attempts, but remember the time it will take you to get back and forth
from a bathroom will waste valuable time. The military will show up at 10 a.m. on 
Day 3 to arrest Chuck, putting an end to the slaughter. It is possible that you 
may be able to return to the safe house just prior to this to extend your game one
extra day, giving you an approximately an extra 24 hours.

Easy money:
* Destroy an ATM machine. Each one will drop between $2,000 and $2,500. 
Note: If you have the "Hacker" combo (Flashlight + Computer Case), you can 
double the money you normally receive from an ATM machine.

* Find a slot machine that has a pile of $100 in front of it. You can win on that
slot machine up to five times. To reset the machine so it will pay out again, go 
into the map (a casino or the machines by the Sports Car in the Royal Flush Plaza)
again. If you have one or more of the three gambling magazines this will work better.

* Make sure you have at least $25,000 to $50,000 before doing this trick. Go to the 
Slot Ranch casino. On one of the walls is a Heart slot machine that has two buy in 
amounts ($100 and $1,000). Select $1,000. Keep playing this machine until you have 
$6 million. It will not take very long. Then, buy as much as desired. The best 
combinations (hearts fill in for the third slot), three hearts are $100,000; two 
hearts and a dollar sign are $100,000; two hearts and a diamond are $50,000; and 
two hearts and a seven are $25,000.

* Go to a maintenance room and combine a flashlight with a computer case to get
the Hacker weapon. Use it on ATM machines to get $10,000 each time.

Easy PP:
Get a merc auto rifle and go to the Tunemakers music store at the Royal Flush Plaza.
Make the Blitzkrieg weapon by first combining the wheelchair (found just in front of
the store) and the car battery (found inside the maintenance room). Then, combine the
electric chair with the merc rifle. Ride the Blitzkrieg out into the plaza and start 
shooting zombies. When you run out of ammo, drive the Blitzkrieg through the opening 
to the Slot Ranch Casino. Ammo for the Blitzkrieg is now refilled and you can shoot 
some zombies again. When you run out, simply drive back to the Royal Flush Plaza and
the ammo will be refilled. This can be repeated as many times as desired for easy PP.
Note: Do not run over too many zombies because the Blitzkrieg will break.

Case West DLC - Achievement/Trophy Tip: Handy Man
The description for Handy Man reads "You created all the new combo weapons in Dead 
Rising 2: CASE WEST. Duct tape, to the max!" But to get the Achievement you cannot 
build ANY weapons other than those required. Build them in THIS PRECISE ORDER:

Shocker        - Defibrillator + Medical Tray 
Zap N’ Shine   - Floor Buffer + Electric Prod 
Lightning Gun  - Blast Frequency Gun + Electric Prod 
Reaper         - Sickle + Katana Sword 
Impact Blaster - Impact Hammer + Blast Frequency Gun 
Sterilizer     - Chemicals + Syringe Gun 
Laser Gun      - This actually requires you to build and combine two other weapons:
                 Laser Sword [Gems + Flashlight] + Lightning Gun [Blast Frequency 
                 Gun + Electric Prod] 

Note: If you build any other weapons you'll have to delete your save file and start

Awesome money and PP:
Submitted by: Thomas

When you start a new game, drive the bike ant take whatever place possible. 1st is the
best of course. After that, you will get a nice amount of money and a lot of PP for 
completing the race. When you need to go to the lift, go to the bathroom and save your
game, then quit it. Go to "start game", move your mouse on your saved file after the 
race, and press x to restart the story. All your money and PP will be there, and you 
will again have to race! Repeat this as many times as desired. I reached lvl 10 and 
got almost 500.000$. This ir really helpfull if you are looking for a very easy start.

Faster Money:
Collect all three gambling magazines, then, go to Slot Ranch Casino and play the large
heart-shaped single pink slot machine on the first floor near the access point to the 
Food Court. Keep betting the max of $1,000 to win a lot of money quickly. It is possible
to win approximately $1,000,000 every ten minutes. Note: Sometimes you may not win 
anything for three minutes, but then you may win three times in a row. Just keep playing
until you win the desired amount of money.

Easy money:
Go to Royal Flush Plaza. Go to the sports shop called "SporTrance". On the bottom
floor you can play a game of Virtual Golf for $2,000. If you win, you will receive

Note: The difficulty increases as you win.

Obtaining Arthur's Armour:
Gathering all four pieces of the following armour not only makes you look like Arthur
from Ghouls 'n' Ghosts, but doubles your health bar as a nice bonus. In an homage to 
the GnG game series, every time you take damage you gradually lose parts of your armour
until you are in nothing but your underwear! 

Unlockable             How to unlock	
Full Beard Moustache - At the back of "Waves of Style" store in Royal Flush Plaza.
Knight Armor         - Complete the game with the "S" ending.
Knight Boots         - Buy at Pawnshop in the Platinum Strip.
Knight Helmet        - Eliminate Jack in Strip Poker in "Ante Up" side mission.

Easy "Smashy" achievement or trophy:
Go to the "Flaming Craps" area in Royal Flush Plaza. Hop the barrier and kill the police 
zombies. As other zombies gather around the barrier, use the smash move to pull them 
through the barrier and bust their heads on the railing. This results in an almost 100% 
kill rate. Kill 100 zombies with this method to earn the achievement or trophy.
