Dead Rising 2 Cheats :
Secret - Wheelchair Accessible
Tired of carrying around survivors in your arms or on your back? Then just push a wheelchair up to them and wait for them to have a seat. You can then run back to the Safe House with ease. Just try not to hit too many zombies and walls or else the rider will fall out and the chair will break. Keep in mind, only 1 survivor can fit in the chair and even uninjured survivors can sit in it. (This tip is especially handy for transporting the soldier during the Shell-Shocked mission)
Code - Tape It or DIE! Secret Achievement/Trophy
Have you been wondering what that secret Achievement/Trophy is for? Just combine some Nectar (orange juice+orange juice at any blender) with a Queen Bee (start chopping zombies that slowly wave their arms about, grabbing at their necks) for a at a maintenance bench for a "Wingman." Afterwards, watch your new friend pop zombie skulls.
Unlockable - Weapon combos
Combine the indicated items to create the corresponding weapon:
Secret - Skip the entire opening sequence of gameplay on a NG+
Code - Zombie Genocide Master
First off you need $2,000,000 and the DRIVER magazine. It is found in BBQ Jacks by the soda fountain. Next, buy the SUV key from pawnshop in Silver Strip. You find the SUV (Humvee) across the street in Shamrock Casino. Now, just drive around the strip slaughtering zombies. With the Driver Mag, your SUV with last 3 times longer(4X4). When your SUV dies, enter a Casino that makes you load. Come back out and your SUV will be back in Shamrock fully repaired. You get 4,000 zombie kills with each SUV and it only takes about 15 minutes (real time) to rack up 72,000.
Secret - Extinguish the Slappy Boss Fight
It may sound silly but there is an easy way to beat Slappy. Inside the toy shop where you fight him, there are squirt guns.
Grab one or two of them, then shoot him with the squirt gun a few times. He will then struggle with his flamethrower as the water messes with them.
You should be able to get a few hits with a mele weapon, then take cover. Repeat shooting him with the Squirtgun and swithing to a spiked bat or Defiler.
Secret - Hidden Spit Move
Code - Zombie Fu
I found the easiest way to kill 1000 zombies with your bare hands was to go into the toy store on the first floor of Royal Flush Plaza & grab some fireworks. Go upstairs to Ragazines & grab the magazine for combat (increases damage from hand to hand).
Go downstairs and jump the railing into the big craps table (the one with the big dice & security guards). Stand next to the railing & throw fireworks to attract zombies to you. As they stand there trying to hit you just throw haymakers (if you have unlocked that already) & use face smash & pick up & throw to kill them.
As far as I can tell, skill moves work as long as you are not holding a weapon. They cannot hit or grab you from the other side of the railing.
It took me about 20 minutes to get the trophy. You also unlock a new outfit in your locker (tattered clothes, aka he Shaun of the Dead clothes).
Code - 72,000 Zombie Kills
First off you need $2,000,000 and the DRIVER magazine. The magazine is found in BBQ Jacks by the soda fountain.
Next, buy the SUV key from pawnshop in Silver Strip. You find a SUV (a Humvee) across the street in Shamrock Casino.
With the SUV, just drive around the strip slaughtering zombies. With the DRIVER Magazine in your possession, your SUV with last three times longer.
When your vehicle is destroyed (or is about to be destroyed), enter any adjacent area that makes your game load a new map. Once you do, go back the Shamrock Casino and the SUV should have respawned with full health.
Using this method, you can get about 4,000 zombie kills with each SUV; all this only takes about 15 minutes of real time.
Code - Free Money Boost at Game Start
Start a new game then win the race. After you win go to the first toilet that you encounter and save your game. Now, go to the main menu and select START GAME and then select RESTART STORY. DO NOT skip the cutscene. You will keep the money and PP that you earned after winning the race ($10,000 for first place) and repeat this as many times as you like.
Secret - Free Zombrex!
Having trouble getting Zombrex for your dear daughter? Fear no longer! Certain missions give out Zombrex for rescuing survivors and you can even find some sitting around on high ledges.
1 // Code Blue, Inside the Slot Ranch Casino: Behind the stage curtains there are some equipment boxes. Jump on them, then to the giant dice, and finally across the gap to claim your prize. You can easily see the Zombrex beforehand, but not jump to it, if you walk up the metal stairs.
2 // Code Blue, Inside the Yucatan Casino: Go to the giant idol in the center and simply jump up the conveniently stair-shaped sides until you reach the offering plate. There you'll find some Zombrex and a Light Machine Gun.
3 // If you are finding it hard to come across some zombrex rather than buying it, why not find it? If you check out the stage in Slot Ranch Casino head behind the curtain and to your right side is some boxes. Carry on around towards the maintenance room behind the stage and climb the boxes to the right of the door as you face it. You will see a nice free bit of Zombrex on top of the highest boxes. (Note: You cannot jump to the boxes from the overhead mez floor).
4 // You can find some extra Zombrex in the underground tunnel after completing the "Ticket to Ride" mission. It is near the underground access ladder underneath the Atlantica casino.
5 // In Big Roy's Mart in Royal Flush Plaza (case related).
6 // Go to the stairs in Bennie Jack's BBQ Shack in the Americana Casino and turn right when going up the stairs to the second floor. Jump on the balcony and then onto the closest light. Keep jumping across the lights until you reach the end.
7 // Backstage behind the curtain at Slot Ranch Casino. Climb up a stack of boxes and speakers. Jump onto a smaller stack of boxes and speakers to find it.
8 // Save the paramedic in the "Code Blue" mission. Bring the paramedic to Dean ("Once Bitten" mission), and the paramedic will give Dean a free Zombrex.
9 // On top of the tallest slot machine display in the middle of Yucatan Casino.
10 // Defeat the Postal Worker (mission related) in Royal Flush Plaza.
11 // Bring Richard (Hunger Pains) food and rescue him in the Silver Strip Diner.
Secret - Unlisted Missions
On top of the numerous calls and timed missions, several secret missions can appear then run out without you even knowing. Here is a list of the secret missions so you don't miss out:
1 // Inside the Yucatan, before you meet Rebecca on Day 1. An optional boss fight is here, along with a survivor hiding in the offices. Head on over to the Food Court and raid it for Steak, and ONLY Steak. Upon entering the Yucatan you will be greeted with a cutscene. Afterwards, beat down Ted, watch him die, then hop up on top of Snowflake's house. You should find 3 steaks total around her enclosure. Toss them way out there and wait. You'll know when she's eaten some because her health bar will have filled a bit. Just remember to stay out of reach, otherwise she'll use YOU for lunch. After about 6 Steaks you'll be greeted with another scene. Finally, save the poor guy trapped inside the Yucatan's office.
2 // Royal Flush Plaza, Casual Gals store, Day 1. After rescuing his wife located directly in front of the Safe Room hallway, Gordon will appear here and need your help getting back.
3 // Royal Flush Plaza, upstairs, during the Rock Heroes mission. While escorting the band, swing by up here to see 3 girls doing their shopping. To get them to follow you have to carry their delicate shopping boxes back to the Safe Room.
4 // Americana Casino, VIP Poker Room. Starting midway through Day 2, some high-rolling poker players will set up a game here. To save them, you must pay the $100,000 buy-in then win. If you lose, you have to pay $100,000 AGAIN and keep trying.
5 // Food Court, after the Tastes Like Chicken boss fight. So, you've killed the psycho and untied the damsel, but she thinks you're a terrorist and won't come with you unless Jasper shows up. He happens to be in the Food Court too, but in an unlikely place. Find the nearest vending machines and get to climbing. You'll find him on one of the many restuarant awnings. Re-unite the pair and hoof it home.
Secret - Six Shooter
Once you've progressed far enough into the game to have unlocked the Six Shooter revolver (by defeating the Cowboy Security Guard Psychopath in the South Plaza) it's a good idea to carry his weapon around, which can be found on the sawing board he dies on. You can only have one at any time like all Psychopath weapons, so if you try to exit and re-enter the area to get an extra Six Shooter, you won't find anything on there until you lose the one you're carrying (or that your Co-Op partner is carrying). This weapon is incredibly powerful, more so than any rifle other than the Sniper Rifle. And it also has a great rate of fire. With this weapon you can easily take out most Psychopaths by simply corner shooting, or in some cases just continually shooting them as most Psychos will be stunned for a brief moment by each shot.

Secret - Slot Machine Secret
When you see a pile of money (100$) in front of a slot machine, you are able to win the slot machine up to five times, then the machine you used will not be won again, until you go into the map (Any casino, or the machines by the Sports Car in the Royal Flush Plaza) again. This works even better if you have any or all of the three gambling magazines.
Secret - Magazine Duplication
To do this you need at least one other player. Start up a save and grab a magazine you would like to duplicate. Now have your other player do the same in their own game. Both save the game. Player B joins Player A and drops the magazine and leaves the game. Player A saves the game. Now Player A has two copies of the magazine! You can do this over and over again to get up to twelve of the same type. So, if you have 12 bargaining magazines the price at pawnshops drop 120%! Or you could get 12 driving books and have your SUV indestructible!
Secret - Easy Leveling
To make your level skyrocket to level 50 go out to Fortune Park and head towards the Atlantica Casino. Don't 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 head inside and combine them, to get the dynameat. Leave and head right 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, then when you feel your group is large enough, jump into the middle of the crowd and use the dynameat, and get out quickly. The resulting explosion will cause your PP bar to go through the roof with points. All of the items respawn when you leave Fortune Park and come back so you can do this as many times as you like. This trick is still very effective at levels 45+.
Unlockable - Ending requirements
