Dead Rising 2 Cheats

Admit it, you sick bastards. You’ve been waiting your entire lives for the opportunity to attach virtual chainsaws to a virtual kayak paddle, and go slaughter some virtual zombies. I knew it! Thankfully for you, Dead Rising 2 was invented. Picking up where CAPCOM’s 2006 bloodthirsty action-RPG left off, the game promises more of the inventively gory zombie-killing we’ve come to love, along with high production values and full complement of reverent hat-tips to shuffling-undead classics.

A new item combination system explains the Kayak-chainsaw monstrosity above, and the design team has recently unveiled a deliciously demented gladiatorial multiplayer system, which allows competing gamers to try to outdo each other as they hew through the slavering horde.

Below you’ll find a full walkthrough, along with achievements, trophies, and cheats — all you’ll need to survive infested Vegas. Good luck, and good huntin’.

How the hell do u kill the guy on the motorcycle… plz help me

Jammer111

On October 8, 2010 at 6:27 pm

@above: He’s a terrible driver, so stick near corners or areas with lots of obstacles. He tends to get stuck, allowing you to run up to him and get off some nice hits (I picked up a Sniper Rifle from one of the shops in Palisades Mall and used some combination weapons to get it done quite quickly).

Meh

On May 8, 2011 at 10:05 am

k first of all, your not the best, no one can be the best at something just because he says he is. second: That weapon room? thats bull. I really doubt theres a room that keeps every weapon in the game for people that have all the achievements/trophies. And if your claiming it exists, where is it then?

On June 8, 2011 at 2:44 pm

i need some help with something. i was running around with a sledge hammer last night (not a combo weapon but just the sledge hammer from the hallway where you take the rescued people right next to the cardboard box. for some reason it wouldnt die. i used it for almost 3000 kills and still had it. i put it down to pick up some food and then was able to pick it back up in the same condition. it was also blinking red the whole time but never broke. when i died i lost it. i have looked on several sites trying to figure out how or why this happened but noone has anything on it all all. if anyone has any info please let me know. it was a great was to get a lot of pp quicky as this weapon can kill 4 or 5 people at a time in a croud. thanks

Tim

On August 26, 2011 at 10:01 am

@jim it’s probably just a glitch see if it works with other weapons if it does you’re in luck

I suppose this move will favor HBSC because they can cut their wage bill by 90% or more. All the bankers who think that they are worth their huge bonuses will find that China is full of young, hungry PhD’s who will be willing to do their jobs for a fraction of their salaries.

I’m with you Cowgirl! I have a 2 year old grandbaby at my house and two dogs that we love with all our heart, as well. We had an unusually bad population of all kinds of snakes last yearand expect the same this year. While most of the snakes are non-poisonous, we do have some rattlers and a few coral snakes. We will try to teach the grand child about the snakes, but the dogs will not know the difference, and I’m afraid that the snakes on our property will have to be destroyed for their safety. It’s just that simple.
