  • Easy leveling

    Enter Fortune Park, and go towards the Atlantica Casino, but do not go in. Instead, follow the wall right until you see a maintenance door. There should be a stick of dynamite and a hunk of meat right outside the door. Pick both of these up, then enter the maintenance room, and combine them to get the Dynameat. Next, go to the fireworks stand, grab some firecrackers, and jump up on top of the stand. Lure a large amount of zombies near you using the firecrackers. Once there is a large group of zombies, jump into the middle of the crowd, use the Dynameat, and then get out quickly. Once it explodes, you will get a lot of PP. Once you enter a nearby place, all the items will respawn. Repeat this as many times as desired. Note: This trick is still very effective at levels 45 and higher.

  • Easy 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.

    Use the Hacker (Flashlight + Computer Case) on ATMs to get $10,000 from each ATM.

    When you see a pile of money ($100) in front of a slot machine, you are able to win on that slot machine up to five times, and then you will hardly win on that machine again until you leave the area and come back again so everything has respawned.

  • Easy items

    Leave an area (so that the loading screen appears) that has the items you want to get more of, then enter the area again, and all objects will have respawned.

  • Magazine duplication

    This trick requires two players. Start a game, and grab the magazine you want to duplicate. Then, have player two do the same in their own game. Have both players save the game. Next, have player two join player one's game through Co-op, drop the magazine, and then leave the game. Have player one pick up the magazine, and save the game. Player one will now have two copies of the magazine. You can repeat this process until you get twelve of the same magazine. Thus, if you have 12 Bargaining magazines, the price at pawnshops decreases 120%. If you have 12 Driving magazines, you will basically have an indestructible SUV.

  • Faster start in New Game+ mode

    Successfully complete the game, and start a New Game+ session. Skip the opening cutscene to also advance past the "Terror Is Reality" section until your arrival at the emergency bunker.

  • Zombrex poster locations

    Search the indicated locations to find all 33 Zombrex posters. Spray paint all Zombrex posters to get the "Improper Behavior" trophy. You can find green spray paint in front of the maintenance room in the Food Court or in the entrance hall of the Fortune City arena. The green spray paints are the easiest to find, and you can collect them quickly by using the "Easy items" trick. Use this trick to get a enough spray paint for all 33 Zombrex posters so you do not need to go back and look for new spray paint. You will need approximately six spray paints. The color of the spray paint does not matter. Note: There is one bonus poster that can only be found during Case 3-2 (in the Americana casino in the room with the mercenaries).

  • Transporting survivors

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

  • Spit attack

    While unarmed, hold [Aim] and press [Throw] or [Fire]. Although it will not do much damage, it can be done an unlimited number of times.

  • Defeating psychopaths

    You can defeat most psychopaths by attacking them with the Knife Gloves (Bowie Knife + Boxing Gloves) while under the effect of the Pain Killer drink (Beer + Beer or Vodka + Vodka).

  • Defeating Leon

    Stand near any ledge you can jump on. When you hear Leon coming, try to get him to hit the ledge and get stuck. Then, jump on the ledge, and simply keep hitting him with a melee weapon until he has been defeated.

    Try to lure Leon into a maintenance room. Then, close the doors, and keep hitting him with a melee weapon until he has been defeated.

    Get the motorbike from the front of the arena. Drive it to the fireworks store on the Silver Strip. Get rockets, and ride the bike to the alley with the maintenance room. Get a lead pipe, then ride the bike to the rock canyon. Enter the maintenance room in the rocks, and create a rocket launcher. Exit the maintenance room, and stand in the left-side corner. Then, save the game. When Leon appears from the left side, he will run into the wall. Keep shooting him with the rocket launcher until he has been defeated.

  • Defeating Sergeant Psycho

    When you go down the tunnels, go directly to the second maintenance room on the left side, following the arrow towards the mission. There is a Servbot mask and lawnmower outside. Combine them to make the Super Slicer, and bring it to the fight. Whenever he stops to reload, charge at him with the Super Slicer on. If done correctly, you can defeat him in approximately five hits.

    Use the following trick to easily kill Sgt. Dwight during Case 6-2. When you enter Fortune Park, buy the SUV key from the pawnshop on the Silver Strip for $2 million. Then, go to the entrance of the Shamrock Casino (Silver Strip - H106), and get the SUV. Drive to the entrance of the underground area. Squeeze the SUV into the underground area. When you get to the entrance for the loading bay, notice that it is blocked off by a line of large boxes. It is possible to drive over these boxes and squeeze the SUV under the security gate, which will trigger the cutscene for the battle with Sgt. Dwight. After the cutscene, you will be on foot again. However, if you look at where you entered, you will see the SUV is stuck halfway in the room. Get in the SUV, and squeeze it in the rest of the way. You can now use it to kill Sgt. Dwight.

  • Defeating Slappy

    Get one or two squirt guns from inside the toy shop where you fight Slappy. Shoot him with the 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 this process until you defeat him.

    Use all of these ranged weapons on a zombie to get the "Death From Afar" trophy.

  • Easy "Look At All That Juice!" trophy

  • Easy "Masquerade" trophy

    Go to Ye Olde Toybox (R107) on the first floor in Royal Flush Plaza. There is an unlimited pile of Lizard Masks. Keep picking up and putting the masks on nearby zombies until you get the "Masquerade" trophy.

  • Easy "Stick 'Em Up" trophy

    Go to Baron Von Brathaus (Y101) in Yucatan Casino. Grab the Mona Lisa painting by the front register and the other painting next to it. Grab the Servbot Mask on the table. Find a nearby zombie, and slam the Mona Lisa painting on it. Slam the other painting on it. Slam the Servbot Mask on it. Then, grab a Large Barrel outside Baron Von Brathaus, and slam it on the zombie with a hard attack to get the "Stick 'Em Up" trophy.

  • Easy "Tape It Or DIE!" trophy

    Combine Queen and Nectar to create the Wingman secret Combo Card and get the "Tape It Or DIE!" trophy. To easily get a Queen, create and drink the Nectar juice (Orange Juice + Orange Juice) to spawn a Queen nearby. Then, simply capture the Queen. Note: The zombies that put their arms in the air (usually in a crowd) sometimes have a Queen. To find such zombies, you need to progress in the story a bit, and they will spawn after you give Katey Zombrex for the second time. To get Nectar, you can combine Beer and Jelly Beans. You can create Nectar with other food and drinks as well, but this combination seems to be the easiest and fastest.

  • Easy "The Skill To Survive" trophy

    Before the psychopath battle with Ted at the Yucatan Casino, collect four steaks. Then, defeat Ted without hitting Snowflake in the process. Once Ted has been killed, continue running from Snowflake, but periodically drop the steaks as you go. Lead Snowflake in circles until she has eaten all the steaks, making sure not to attack her. Shortly after Snowflake is full, a cutscene will play, and you will get "The Skill To Survive" trophy.

  • Easy "Zombie Slaughter", "Zombie Destruction", "Z-Genocider 2: Genocide Harder", and "Zombie Genocide Master" trophies

    Buy the SUV key from the pawnshop on the Silver Strip for $2 million. Then, restart the story (you will still keep the SUV key). Immediately get the driving magazine in Bennie Jack's BBQ Shack in the Americana Casino. Go to the entrance of the Shamrock Casino (Silver Strip - H106), and get the SUV. Drive it around the Silver Strip and Platinum Strip killing as many zombies as possible. Once the SUV is almost destroyed, enter and exit the Yucatan Casino quickly. Go back to the Shamrock Casino to get a new SUV. Repeat this process until you get the "Zombie Genocide Master" trophy. It is possible to kill over 90,000 zombies from Day 1 through Day 4 by doing nothing but this. It is a very slow process that requires a lot of time and patients. Note: You only get the "Zombie Genocide Master" trophy for killing 72,000 zombies, unlike in the original Dead Rising where you got the Mega Buster for killing 53,596 zombies. Additionally, zombie kills are the only thing that does not carry over from a previous game. You must get the required number of zombie kills in one game.
