  • Final Boss *SPOILERS*

    Entry location: Final boss
    *SPOILERS*

    Sullivan uses a handgun, advanced hand-to-hand fighting, and throws flares that call missiles.

    Firstly, in the Yucatan casino maintenance room, there is a spitball gun. Find the room with the tiki torches, combine the gun with one then save. Load the game and repeat (need 2 of them).

    You will need at least 4 items of food that heal 4+ slots.

    Go up the elevator, ignore the zombies except the ones on the stairs (it's where you'll be fighting from). Activate the cutscene, turn around and go behind the hedge/fence. Take shots at him till he dies, healing as needed.
    Beware the flares.

    TL;DR
    - 2 firespitters
    - 4+ items of food
    - go up
    - kill zombies on stairs
    - hide behind hedge/fence while shooting

  • How To Rescue Snowflake the Tiger

    After watching the video of Ted with Snowflake, kill Ted. Do Not Hit Snowflake with anything. Run to the ledge and grab the two steaks on it. Then go to the small pillar in the side of the ledge and grab the last steak. Drop one steak near the outside of the tiger cage. Wait near the ledge for the tiger to come. Everytime Snowflake passes the steak jump on the ledge. Repeat this until Snowflake has eaten all of the steaks. Once all the steaks have been eaten Snowflake turns into a survivor and will maul zombies as you lead him to the safe room.

  • Easy Kill Psychopaths

    Entry location: Near Safe House
    I found out that it is really easy to kill most of the psychopaths if you combine the bowie knife with the boxing gloves. However, this weapon doesn't have a lot of endurance, but it's a good one to keep handy. The easiest way to combine these two weapons is to go to the top of "Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow" which is the first magazine stand next to the safe house. On top of it should be the bowie knife, so now all you need is a Maintenance Room and the Boxing gloves. The boxing gloves are almost directly "north" of where the bowie knife was located. They are in the store called, "The Man's Sport". So now just combine the two to get a very awesome and useful weapon, the "Knife Gloves". Also if you run out of a location all of the weapons and items reset so you can get a lot of knife gloves by just walking into the Americana Casino, and then back into the Royal Flush Plaza to make multiple Knife Gloves.
