  • Easy money

    Collect all three gambling magazines. Then, go to Slot Ranch Casino, and play the large slot machine. 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.

    In Uranus Zone, there are $10,000 money cases and a $60,000 money case that respawn. Two money cases are in the bar area, and one is in the bank. To get the $60,000 money case, climb up the stairs to the roller coaster, break the glass, go outside, and head to the right until you reach the robot. Then, jump on his right arm, and climb on to his thumb. Jump over to the next ledge, turn left, and go in that window. In the second area of the room are two baskets on the floor, with the $60,000 money case in one of them.

    Go to Slot Ranch Casino in Sandbox mode. Kill enough zombies to unlock the challenge on the stage. Before you start the challenge, go behind the curtain, and find the flying saucer. Pick it up, and then start the challenge. When the challenge begins, start the flying saucer. The zombies will be lured into the saucer. When 25 zombies get close enough and remain there, you will get $40,000. After the challenge, pick up the flying saucer again, and repeat the process as many times as desired.

  • Easy PP

    Photograph the side of TK's head in the "TK Needs Zombrex" mission for 500 PP each time. Repeat this as many times as desired.

    On Day 2, do the "Here Comes The Groom" mission. Get the Psychopath's attention away from you by leaving the building and returning approximately 30 seconds to 1 minute later. When you return, he should have the bride in a chokehold and will not release her until you get close. You can repeatedly photograph this for 5,000 PP each time.

  • Easy BFG (Blast Frequency Gun)

    Enter the underground tunnels through the stairway in the Americana Casino. Grab an orange cart, and go left (north) up the tunnel. As it curves, you will see a large jump with a blue tarp covering it. The gun is on the top of the tarp. Combine it with an Amplifier to get a very powerful gun.
