Case Missions:

TIR Opening

Saw the zombies and get first place. Saw the zombies with the balls over them
for extra point bonuses. Grabbing first place gives you 5,000 PP. Second place
only gives you 2,500 PP.

After the cutscenes head down the hall, pass Amber. Examine the elevator to
get to the green room. Pick up the Bat on the floor and start whacking away at
the zombies. Follow the arrow down the Hall to find Katey in the green room.

Head outside to get to the safe house.

Safe House

You can find many weapons lying around the safe house. Grab the Axe right
outside of the room and head right and down the stairs. Examine the opening
vent to go to the Royal Flush mall.

Case: Find Katey Zombrex

Your first mission is head to Roy's Mart. Follow the arrow to the location.
It is next to the Slot Ranch casino. Inside you will encounter your first set
of looters. Beat them up to get the Pharmacy Key. Open the back door of the
store to get your free Zombrex.

Talk to Denyce and she will follow you. Take her back to the safe house to
earn some nice PP. Remember you can equip survivors weapons by just talking
to them.

Now that you have a lot of time to kill before giving Katey Zombrex go run
around and start killing zombies or explore! Just keep your eye on the timer!

Case 1-2: Alive on Location

Enter the Hotel to find Rebecca. Use the map if you need to find the Hotel.

Case 1-3: Insecurity

Talk to her and she will take you to the security room. Save along the way.

Case 1-4: Alliance

Head back to the safe house and talk to Stacey.

Case 2-1: Sign of Life

Another time waster mission. Use this time to find a Zombrex for Katey. Go to
the Zombrex Locations part of the FAQ if you need to know where to find them.
Head back to the safe house and talk to Stacey.

Case 2-2: Investigate the Underground

Follow the arrow to the Underground. Kill the mercenarys and get on the bike!
Use the ramps to get on the train. Kill the goons and open the door at the end
to finish here. Use the go cart to get back to the mall. Also there is a Zombrex
down here in the underground tunnels, look at the ground near the Maintenance
door / Silver Strip ladder.

Case 3-1: Boom Town

Another time waster. Run around, do side missions and head back to Stacey.

Case 3-2: Run for the Money

Head to the Americana, Slot Ranch, and Yucatan casinos. Kill the mercenarys
and destroy each drill at the safes. Pick up the LMG for the next part. Go
outside of the Atlantica and kill the mercenarys. Afterwards destroy the van
to finish this case.

Case 4-1: The Source

Another time waster. Run around, do side missions, get a Zombrex. When the
timer is about half way down head to Shoal Nightclub in Yucatan Casino to fight
the twins.

Get some food / drink items before entering. Painkillers would work best. You
only have to kill one of them to finish the fight here. Focus on one of them
and attack. There's Vodkas around here to that heals you pretty good, ignore
the beers on the ground because they heal less. When you beat them they will
drop cool swords, pick them up. Ideal weapons to use would be the Boxing Gloves,
Laser Sword or the Broadsword. Broadsword seems to knock them down, giving you
free hits.

Case 5-1: Stake Out

More time to do stuff. When Stacey calls head to the safe house's elevator.

Case 5-2: The Getaway

Head to the Hotel. Kill the mercenarys and use the elevator. Throw Pylons and
Lamps at the chopper's blade when you use the winch. If you have dodge roll you
can roll under the winch when it approaches. He will fly by twice and then shoot
his machine gun. Use the winch to dodge the bullets. When the winch light turns
green use it and throw stuff at the blade to finish here.

Case 6-1: Help Arrives

Give Katey her last zombrex. Now the military arrives. Super Zombies will now
appear throughout the malls and outside. They are very fast and puke stuff at
you, stunning you. Head to the underground by way of Silver Strip. It will take
you to Sgt. Boykin quicker. Make sure to make some Painkiller drinks first.

Case 6-2: Last Stand

Before heading in climb the crates near the go karts to find a magazine that
makes blade weapons last longer. Go in to start. Use the pillars and storage
boxes for cover. Use dodge roll to get close and start attacking. He can do
some nice damage on you so make sure you have enough heals. Good weapons to
use on him are Axes, Broadswords, the Ripper, or Defiler. Also, if you're
quick enough you can throw back the grenades he throws at you!

Case 6-3: Lean on Me

Afterwards take Rebecca and put her on a go cart. Press the use button on a
cart when Rebecca is near and she will be on. Drive back to the safe house.
Try not to run over many zombies or the cart will get damaged and blow up.

Case 6-4: Breach

Zombies are attacking the safe house!

Follow the arrow to find the Generator, Spool, and Gasoline and take each back
to the broken panel. Close the gate to finish.

Case 7-1: Bad to Worse

All cutscenes.

Case 7-2: The Only Lead

Head underground. Use a go cart to get to the destination quicker. You will
notice that the zombies are all attracted to the door. They will not harm you
here. Examine the switch by the door to get in. Hopefully you kept a sniper
gun or a pistol. Shoot the mercenarys up above. You will find a few Blast
Frequency Guns up here. They will make the super zombies head pop with one
shot. Regular zombies are not affected. Pick a few up to make the Super BFG!
Super BFG will kill all zombies.

Examine the door near the tunnel. Fight off the scientest. Use dodge roll to
get close and kill. Done. Enter the elevator and use the Palisades shortcut
to get back to the safe house.

Case 7-2: What Lies Beneathe

Get back to the safe house.


Head to the elevators inside Yucatan. Make your way up to Sullivan. No
weapons work on Sullivan. To beat him use repeated drop kicks on him. It will
stun him each time. When he rolls at you just jump over him. Don't get in front
of him for no reason. Watch out for his uppercut, it can nearly kill you!
Congrats on beating the game.

Overtime Mode:

During Case 7-2 you will have a chance to give TK a Zombrex. Doing so will
trigger the Overtime mode after beating the game. This is the games true ending
and provides you with a few more missions to do, and to fight TK himself.

TK wants you to retrieve a few things:

1. Comprimising Photo: At Americana Casino security room.

2. Gift Basket: At the Hotel. Behind the reception counter.

3. Expensive Champagne: at Pub O' Gold bar in Silver Strip.

4. Case of Queens: Underground, jump over the generators to get it at the left
                   hand side by the big door entrance.

5. Mobile Headset: in Yucatan by the elevators. On the ground.

6. USB Drive: Underground. On the ground.

7. Lab Suit: at Roy's Mart in Royal Flush Plaza

When you have all the items head to the Arena's stadium door to face TK.

When the fight starts arm yourself with a weapon. Grab a 2x4 or Lamp from the
back of the area. When you go to the back TK will fire off fireworks at you so
hurry and grab something and come back. You can jump over the upper part to get
over. Drop Kicking also works on TK. It will stun him so when he attacks
dodge it and drop kick. While stunned get a few hits in and run away. Eventually
TK will run away down below. Examine the lever and push Stacey and Katey up.
Beware of TK, he likes to sneak up behind ya. Push them up enough so they won't
fall. If they fall then its game over. If you need heal items check inside the
cardboard boxes for snacks and juice. Thats all you need to do to beat him.

Congrats you just received the S ending.
