Box art - Dead Rising 2

Dead Rising 2 Xbox360 Cheats

Easy Money Grinding

At any time in the game after you first make it to the safe house and save your game, go to "quit game" and restart the story. After this DO NOT PRESS START TO SKIP THE CUT-SCENE. This will allow you do do the opening "Slicecycles" sequence again and gain $10,000 for coming in 1st place. This process can be done as many times as you'd like

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. 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. You want to pick both of these up and head inside. Combine them, to get the dynameat. Leave and head to the fireworks stand and grab some firecrackers.  Then jump up on top of the stand and lure a large amount of zombies near you using the firecrackers.  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+.


Skip the entire opening sequence of gameplay on a NG+

If you skip the opening cinematic, you will also skip the Terror Is Reality section and the subsequent gameplay section all the way up to arriving at the emergency bunker.


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 again.
