You don’t have “pushy bear”. It is in the high school at Sunset Hills.

Wheel Chair and Freedom Bear

Its actually outside of the high school in the back near the tree where there a bunch of zombies that you would have to fight off at the courtyard.

Blueprint- Tactical RC
Ingredients- RC Helicopter and Machete

Located in Central City. Once you jump the bridge, or if you are doing the mission to destroy the security cameras, there will be a truck in the middle of the road, and inside the truck will have a blueprint including the ingredients.

@Jennifer,

Sorry for any confusion, but those combo weapons are listed on our Super Combo Weapons or Vehicle pages. To clear things up, I added all those combos to the list here.
