    Fort Locations

    There are various locations in the mall to make a fort. To make a fort you have to block up all the entrances/exits with tables, chairs, benches etc.

    Here are some examples of good locations:

    1. The sandwich shop next to the Movie theater. This place has food to restore health.

    2.The spicy meatballs cafe/restaurant in the Food Court. This area has big chairs to make blocking it off a lot easier.

    3.The gun store in the north plaza (spoiler: make sure that you kill Cletus first). There is no particular reason why this is a good fort, it's just good to keep guns close to you.

    I know there are other locations good for forts but these are just a few off the top of my head...

    All SMG locations

    Every Plaza (Except North)

    Note: The SMG's cannot be used for perfect gunner achievement

    (These locations appear in chronological order [which is a fancy way of saying the place you go first] according to the main storyline)

    #1: Paradise Plaza:
    After exiting the warehouse at the beginning of the game (when you're a n00b) right above you is a blue...thing to best describe it. This blue thing is a little border decoration that sticks out of the wall on top of all the stores on that side. Go to your immediate right and onto the stairs. From there you should be able to jump up onto the blue thing. The SMG (among other things [including a teddy bear]) is up there and is at the very end

    #2: Leisure Park:
    Close to the shed on the side of the movieland theater, there is a tree and under this tree is a amazing. Pick up this rock and aim up into the tree. There is an SMG on one of the branches that you can knock down with the rock. But you must ask yourself why there is an SMG in a tree beyond the obvious explanation of a trigger happy squirrel. And come to think of it, why are sub machine guns so abundant in a shopping mall...must be in Texas.

    #3: Food Court
    On your left as soon as you walk in from the park is a little restaurant called Chris' fine foods. On the sign of this establishment is a model of a rather fat chef (assumed to be a depiction of this Chris fellow). In front of this rather large chef is another SMG. Simply jump up on the one of the walls and climb up. Again, the only reason I can think of why a sub machine gun would be in front of a fat chef of a restaurant would be to threaten people to eat at this fine establishment...

    #4: AlFresca Plaza:
    After running through the entire plaza, you reach a small food court with a fountain in the middle. The SMG is located in the middle of this fountain along with a dumbbell. You probably don't even want to hear my theory of why that SMG was there...

    #5: Entrance Plaza:
    (Requires a live dead zombie)
    Go up the escalators and run around the banister to the other side of the escalators. If you are facing the cosmetic shop, the closest palm tree on your right has the SMG. All you have to do is lure a man-eating zombie over to the banister, get on its shoulder using zombie ride, and jump over a gap that would surely kill you if you fell to land on a palm tree with an SMG in it. This palm tree probably had some self confidence issues and threatened to shoot all the other trees if they didn't stop making fun of his drooping balls...

    #6: Maintenance Tunnels:
    If you are entering the maintenance from the outside parking lot with the convertible or motorcycle that you hijacked, make a right and then take your first left and then your first right again. You should come to a dead end with a door. No idea what this area is used for. Inside the door is a storage room with some skateboards, sledgehammers, food, and, you guessed it, an SMG! It also has the maintenance tunnel key. Janitors obviously throw awesome parties when no one is looking...

    And that's it there are other guns and lethal weapons in the mall, including baseball bats, stun guns, and handguns that are thrown into trash bins, but that's not too strange because we're assuming its Texas.


    There is one more I forgot to mention which is in Wonderland Plaza. Note that you may have to break some theme park rules to get this lethal weapon. Simply ride the roller coaster while it's functioning properly. When it is over one of the lego houses which has the SMG on it, do the opposite of keep your hands and legs inside the vehicle at all times. Basically make a dive for it while the ride comes over it and hope you survive.

    Invincibility Juice

    Columbian Roastmasters, Paradise Plaza, Willamette Parkview Mall, Willamette, CO

    The Invincibility Juice can be done a variety of places, but the easiest is at Columbian Roastmasters, Paradice Plaza. At any point in the game, procede to the front counter and pick up a pie. DONT EAT IT then pick up an orange juice and place both in the blender. Wait a few seconds, then a red bottle will pop out of the blender. Voila 60 seconds of invincible goodness.

    Frank's Zombification Cure Item's Locati

    Everywhere In Mall Area

    To find the items for Franks Zombification Cure you must go to these places in this order to still have 5 game hours remaining;

    -First you'll want to brew up about 4 "Quickstep" drinks to evade the Special Forces.

    1.) After brewing the quickstep drinks in the Columbian Roastmasters in Paradise Plaza, grab the BLENDER after making the drinks.

    2.) Retrieve the COLD SPRAY in the Sporting Goods store next to the Columbian Roastmasters.

    3.) Run to Cam's Cameras next to the Entry/Exit door to the Warehouse to get the SOLUTION.

    4.) Quickly dash up to the Security Room and grab the COFFE FILTERS.

    5.) Run back down from the security room and run to the Entrance Plaza and get up the escelators and retrieve the PERFUME BOTTLE.

    6.) Next run to the front doors of the Entrance Plaza and take a left into the Camping Shop and get the CAMPING STOVE.

    7.) Next Get into the Food Court and gain entrance to the Wonderland Plaza. There go to the Jewlery Store and there retrieve the MAGNIFYING GLASS.

    8.) Now this ones a little hard to do. Theres two ways you can get the FIRST AID KIT.

    1.) (If you do have the Maintainence Tunnel Key) Get into the Parking Garage and take a left to where you killed the Butcher. Theres a door to the Right of the Butcher Shop door, take it. Then youll appear in the Supermarket and you can proceed straight and into the Pharmacy and grab the FIRST AID KIT and go back down into the garage. Then get out of the Parking Garage and to Isabella in Carlito's Hideout.

    2.) (If you dont have the Maintainence Tunnel Key) This is the way I did it and its really hard! First get into the North Plaza past the Special Forces down to the Supermarket. Make shure you have a Katana or other Sword from the shop to the left of the Supermarket. Then enter and race down to the Pharmacy and close the door! Then regain some health from the Cardboard Box in the Pharmacy. Get the FIRST AID KIT and make it past the Special Forces. Then take the Motorcycle infront of the Entry/Exit Door from the Supermarket. Drive it down to Carlito's Hideout and you'll still have about 1-5 hours left depending on how high of level you are.

    Several quick tips on bosses

    Any time you fight a boss

    I know that there are already tons of tips on how to kill bosses, but after reading them I discovered that most of them involve taking a katana or small chainsaw and simply cutting them up. I have some tips for if you simply don't have the health to do that.

    Cletus, In the Huntin' Shack (North Plaza)

    Alright first of all simply run out of the store. Now you should kill all the zombies out there to give you some breathing room. Once that is done, open the door to your left (Cletuse's right) so that it is opened into the store. Then simply stand at the edge of the wall to the left of the door and aim with your gun. Due to Frank's natural right lean, you will be able to shoot Cletus while safely behind the door. If you run out of ammo, there is a corridor to the right on your way back to the North Plaza that usually has 3-4 zombie cops with guns.

    Carlito (Food Court)

    This fight is pretty easy, although I still wonder why I cant get his gun. Run up the stairs roughly in front of you so you are kinda under Carlito. You should see a stack of boxes to the right, jump on then, and then onto the same level that Carlito is on. Basically use the same tactic you used on Cletus, go to the edge of the wall, aim, and shoot. (Note: The handgun has a rather small range, so If you're shooting right at Carlito and hes not taking any damage, just wait until he gets closer.) After a bit of this, he will run away to another section of the roof. For this I reccomend jumping down next to Brad and Shooting Carlito when he comes out from behind the sign. Because of the horrible AI, Carlito will always run out to the same spot, so just aim right there and hit him when he stops. If you run out of ammo, just talk to brad and he'll give you another gun.

    The Convicts

    If you're like me, then you got pretty frusterated by these guys. All you have to do, however is raid the Huntin Shack and grab a couple shotguns and maybe a sniper rifle. (If you havent killed Cletus, then this fight is a lot harder, so I would reccomend doing that first.) If you like being up close and personal, then simply blast the convicts with the shotgun when they try to run your over. I recomend killing the gunner first, then the guy with the bat, and then the driver. If you find that you keep running out of health when you do this, then I would reccomend trying out the sniper rifle. Just run away from them until they become preoccupied with something else or get stuck behind a tree, and then kill the zombies in a rough 25 ft square area so you can aim. Then just zoom in on the convicts and take out the gunner, then passenger, driver. It is kinda touchy while aiming, so you dont need to nessecarily go for headshots, as long as you hit them. Note: If you dont destroy the car after you kill the convicts, they will simply come back next time you enter the park. I reccomend taking the gun off of the back and shooting the jeep until black smoke comes from under the hood. If you're not sure that its completely destroyed, then check if you can still get in.

    Carlito when he has a sniper rifle. (Entrance Plaza)
    First of all, when you use this trick Brad may become low on health, so be sure you keep an eye on him. Run up the stairs, and follow Brad to the sports store. Then you need to make a quick dash to the pillar closest to the store. If you jump in the middle, you shouldnt get hit. Use the same trick as with Cletus and Carlito the first time and hide behind it. Sadly, the sniper rifle does not work with it, so its pretty much useless, unless you want to take pot shots at Carlito from the stairs. He will be out of range most of the time from that first pillar, so I reccomend running left to the other side of the second floor, and running up until you are directly opposite of Carlito. Then use the same trick, but you should be able to hit him this time. If he starts to run towards you, then you need to retreat because he can then get a shot at you.

    Steve (I dont know if thats right, but hes the leader of the raincoat cult) Movie Theater

    This is pretty simple, and, despite what I said earlier I reccomend a katana. The shotgun is hard to use because he is always in your face and its pretty hard to shoot him before he stabs you. So I would just wait until he attacks you, sidestep it, and get in a quick slash or two while hes recovering. Keep this up for a bit and he will drop pretty fast. As for the cultists that come running in afterwards, that is what the shotgun was made for. Just put a couple pumps into the group, wait for one to charge you, and let him run up to you. You will then enter a grapple, and its pretty easy to win. Once you push him over step back, and, if it went right, most of the group should be over the body when it explodes. SPOILER: The book that Steve drops is called "Brainwashing for dummies" XD

    Adam (Wonderland Plaza)

    This is a pretty easy fight, despite how much everybody else whines about it. First of all, you need to run down the stairs to the second floor. Once he follows you, stay at a distance of about 10-15 feet away and wait until he starts to blow a balloon. (If he decides to throw a knife just dodge it and he will problably blow a balloon, and if he does the flame breath, then your too close) Shoot the balloon, and keep shooting him while he's stunned. This is pretty much the entire fight, and I got it the first time without losing a single bar of health. If he jumps down to the first floor, then DO NOT FOLLOW HIM. There are tons of zombies down there, and it is much harder to kill him. Just wait until he comes back up to the first floor.

    Final Boss (Dont remember the name, but hes the guy on the tank.)

    First of all, this is a very hard fight. First he will do a little "come here" gesture but ignore it. If he doesnt charge you, then bait him by running up to him and back really fast. First he will kick at you, then he will yell and charge you, usually knocking you off the tank. Sidestep that, and beat the crap out of him as soon as he passes you. Any technuiqe will do, I used normal punches most of the time. Note: When he blocks your punches he will take a tiny amount of damage, so once his health is about at one quarter left, just keep punhcing him and letting him block it, and after about 2 minutes he will die. I also found that if you are constantly falling off the tank and getting bitten several times, then scan the edge of the zombie crowd for some that have queens. I found a couple next to the wall, so look around. Kill that zombie and throw the wasp-in-a-jar at the crowd. You will kill about 200 every time, so if you do that 2 or 3 times the zombie crowd will pretty much dissapear, so you dont have to worry about falling off the tank.

    Thats all I have, I know there are more bossess, but I dont want to ruin all the fun for you >=)

    Kill Cultists Easier

    To kill the cultists in the yellow coats with green masks

    First make a spitfire drink (or more) then drink it and go to spit mode by taking off weapon and then aiming and then go spit on them and it only takes 3 - 5 spitfire shots for a low level ( 1 - 30 ) and at level 50 it should be about 1 - 3 shots

    Also across from Columbian roast masters is the sports shop so you can go grab a few golf clubs because they only take 3 - 5 shots to kill a cultist and there is as many orange juice as you want in Columbian roast masters as well.

    How to Kill Brock and the Tank


    To kill the tank, just shoot at the glowing things that switch places on the body of the tank. Usually they appear at the front of the tank on the left or the right. Occasionally they will appear at the top of the tank. When it appears at the top, shoot it immediately! If you don't shoot it then the tanks attack will do considerable damage to your vehicle. The tanks health will appear at the bottom of the screen so you know how your doing so far.


    After you destroy the tank, A cut scene will occur. After the cut scene you will spawn on the tank will Brock standing on it with you. All around you is a swarm of zombies. You do not have any weapons when you spawn but don't worry! All you need is the double lariat where you spin around. If you have this skill then you will do fine on him. If you don't then the other move i recommend is the knee drop. To kill him with the knee drop just get him off the very top of the tank onto the front of it. Get him to attack you and quickly dodge him. jump onto the top of the tank and when he jumps up after you, knee drop him and it should do some damage. You should avoid being knocked off the tank because the zombies will devour you and your basically screwed if you fall off. Also avoid being knocked to the ground because Brock will do his neck snap move which will kill a lower level.

    Defeating Adam the Clown

    When facing Adam, you should have a couple handguns. While you are facing him you should stay far away and you should keep on looking at him. After a while he will start to blow up a balloon, shoot him and he will drop the balloon. Then really quickly shoot the balloon. If you do this right, he should start laughing. While he is laughing you should shoot him a couple times. Keep repeating these steps and you should beat him very quickly.

    Easily Killing Madman

    When your on your way to the supermarket to get medicine for Brad, go into the construction site area - in the very first store under construction, there will be a nail gun on the ground, pick it up and save all its ammo. Once you're in the store and about to go through the double doors you get stopped by the freaky madman dude. Even when he starts chasing you and you have to kill him, run back to the double doors (make sure you picked up some milk). Open only one of the double doors and run inside, then, turn around and the madman will try to run through the doors but he can't fit - while he's just standing there, start unloading with the nail gun right in his annoying little face. He will run away, but he comes right back so don't move. And the milk is because about every 15 or 20 shots you take he shoots you with his shotgun. No biggie though. (The nail gun holds 60 shots).

    Boss Fights

    In the game you will run into several boss fights which is kind of obvious. Not all of these bosses were explained so I will do so. There is several ways of doing this. Its easier at 50 but I will explain in the lower lvl areas.

    Carlito-(Food Court) this fight is started from the case file Backup for Brad. Now as you start run to the back and start shooting him from the back this will cause him to do various things such as shoot at you/brad and cause him to run around. He will do this through the whole fight and eventually work his way into the restaurant signs. Now if you run low on health run into a restaurant and eat some food. another way of doing this is jumping onto the balchony with the boxes in the dining section towards the middle and slice at him with a knife. note: Brad has extra ammo for you.

    Adam the crazed clown-(Out of control Scoop) at night of the first day otis will call you about this guy. go to the 2nd floor of the wonderland plaza to find him. If your a good shot you should only need 2 handguns for this guy. When you start run out of the blue area you start it since the rollercoaster can be dangerous when comming through and can kill u. so get out of there. Distance is important against this boss he has 2 chainsaws and will charge at u when close so get away. When your about 25 feet away he will eather throw knives or blow up a gas filled balloon when he throws knives try to shoot you should be able to get a shot or 2 when he does this but he doesnt throw them often. When he blows up balloons shoot the balloon it will cause him to caugh then unload on him repeat until you kill. also if he gets close when ur doing this shoot him and it will cause him to tottally stop. note- he drops the small chainsaw weapon which is one of the best weapons in the game. use it for boss fights not on zombies unless you have the 3x book combo.

    Cliff the Hatchet man(Hatchetman Scoop) Found in the Home depot like store in North Plaza. You should have a katana or small chainsaw for this boss. Katanas can be found by the grocery store. Cliff uses hit and run tactics. So when he gets close you can get a few hits on him. When your low lvl its hard since hes much faster than you. After he hits you or misses he will run into little chutes scattered across the area when he jumps in one he will have a photo op so try to get it. after he does this he will be on one of the shelves. dont tottally go next to him since he will jump down if u get to close. Just repeat hitting him when he gets close and you should have it. beware he does throw bombs when on shelves and smoke bombs to make you cough. note his machette he drops is also a very nice weapon.

    Carlito-Entrance Plaza(Rescue the Proffesor) this fight is fairly simple at low level when your not very fast get a quickstep drink(milk+milk) and run at him with a katana he will go down very fast.

    Steve the Grocery Store man-(Medecine Run) this fight isnt very tough due to food being all around you. A katana/small chainsaw works fine just out manuever his weapon rack and you will be fine. Beware he does have a shotgun which he pulls out ever once in awhile. His photo ops is when your behind him he will try a drop kick at you from the back. its a tough shot.

    Jo the Fat Police Officer(Above the Law) this fight is somewhat challenging when your lower level just try to outrun her and stop for a quick second so she tries to attack you if she misses you can hit her with a small chainsaw or katana about 2-3 times repeat until she dies. when she shocks one of the girls is when a photo op appears.

    Sniper Family(Mark of the Sniper)-These guys are fairly simple if you can catch up to them take a quickstep just in case. Bring a katana or small chainsaw and ran at them crazily when u get to close they will try to run away in which u can repeatly swing until succession. note: take out there dad named roger and then jack since there the better aimers. jack and roger when they shoot you will sometimes clap hands which is a photo ops.

    Paul the Emo kid(The Punked Out Kid Scoop? something like that) This fight is a bit of a challenge you may need a bit of food on this guy. Using guns is tough on this guy since he runs alot and its pretty hard to aim in this game a sniper or shotgun would work pretty well but if your a melee lover like me you can chase him down. He drops bombs when you chase him but if you to the outside you can avoid them. He does get tired after awhile and sometimes hits himself with his own bombs. Hes just like the snipers just chase him down and swing. You can dodge most projectiles thrown. after u defeat him hes on fire which is a photo ops you can put out the fire. just stand back and spray... it takes a few tries to get the spray down and you cant aim with the extinguisher or else you will just throw it.

    Sean the Cultist Leader-(A Strange Group) Sean is very easy of coarse i was at level 50 when I did this just grap a small chainsaw and fight him up close he died in 4 hits or so for me. I did something really cool where I summersault kicked him then roundhouse kicked him making him kneel to the ground then I slashed him up he didnt even touch me. but yah just take a katana or small chainsaw and fight him up close hes really easy. and after the fight cover your eyes for the cut scene its really nasty.

    Cletus the Gunshop owner- Found in the north plaza this guy is really tough one of the hardest bosses. what you should do is on the right side of the shop lift up one of the signs and place it really close to the one in the upper right that way its harder for him to hit you. then when you start aiming at him he will go under the counter for a bit and move around then pop up thats ur que to shoot him but dont shoot to much because after awhile he will duck again and you will miss your shots. if he does hit you with a shot he has a photo shot of him drinking wine. Also when he reloads thats another time to hit him. If you do run out of food or guns if you time it right when hes reloading or so you can run up grab a shotgun or wine after that he will likely throw you so be quick. note: he has tons of guns after you kill him so load up.

    Kent Camera man(Photographers Pride) Another easy one have a katana or small chainsaw ready and just cut him up took me 3 hits hit him hard and quick. his jump kick is the only things to worry about.

    Larry the Butcher(Jessies spotting something like that, one of the cases in the storyline) This guy is tough when your a lower level your best bet is to have 2 shotguns and right in the begging shoot him once and run to the counter in the back w/ the 2 milks. if your low on HP use the milks. just stay behind it and unload. He will throw knives and occasionally one of the cut up cows. when he throws the cows try to do one of the dodging moves because they do alot of damage. he rarely does a photo op but he will sometimes go in the back and drink out of the sink. note his meat cleaver is a very nice weapon. also note that the torn up cows do wear down ur weapons so dont him them lol.

    Brock the final boss- the guy nobody posted about. now im sure alot of you are looking for somone to post about this I sure did but I had to do it the hard way. I do reccommend you doing this at lvl 50 his neck break kills lower levels in one hit. and your punches do minor damage against him when lower. to kill brock you should try hitting him with jump kicks all the time if you do manage to hit him with one do a double larriette to further damage him. look for ques to hit him with the jump kicks when he tries to ram at you. he is farely easy when you master to fight him... it may take a few tries believe me I know I started at lvl 26 and learned the hard way. in the begging of the fight he will wind up his fist which is a photo op snap it quick. Good luck guys and have fun.

    Kill Sean Easily

    First make sure you have good weapons. Once you enter theater number four he will be in their praying to a maniquin. Right when the cutscene is over turn around and run out the door you came in. He won't follow you so you walk into the theater hit him a couple of times and walk back out . If you need more life go into the other theaters and check for food or drinks. Note: Once you kill him more of his cult followers will come after you blocking the way out of theater four, so take Sean's sword.

    Big Helpers

    The Spining Head - while in Pardise Plaza, go to the toy shop with the novelty lego masks, in the middle of them, there is a large lego man, whos head is in two sections, hit it, until the top spins 180 degrees to change his eyes, then you will be awarded 10,000 PP

    The Gasoline - once outside, if u go down the long alley into the parking lot, there will be a car and bike waiting for you. That's a great way to earn plenty o'kills. However, if you enter the underground section watch out, a few zombies down there are pushing gasoline tanks, the tanks will severely damage your car/bike, and will eventuall destroy it, and unless you are at a very high level with very good weapons, without a vehicle, surviving down there is hopeless.

    The Convicts

    Just grab two handguns a samurai sword and all the orange juice you can hold. To beat them, get them to run into a tree then slice the driver. if you run out of your samurai sword shoot them. When they're all dead grab the big machine gun in the back of the jeep.

    Clown with Chainsaws

    you need the big machine gun you got from the convicts and a couple handguns. Run away from the clown until you have a safe distance. Its alot easier in a hallway or a big open area. shoot him with your big machine gun when he blows up the balloon. Then shoot rapidly with the big gun still. When he dies grab his chainsaws for killing the zombies.

    How to Kill Bosses

    Cletus, the Guy in the Hunting place
    *You will need a couple pistols and some balls*

    The easiest way to kill this guy is to hide behind the racks with stuff on them. There are two that you can pickup, but don't. Stay behind them and wait until Cletus reloads. He shoots about 8 times, and then reloads. You can pop out and shoot him or run up and grab a shotgun real fast. If you get too close he picks you up and throws you. So hide behind the signs and he will drop to the floor and roll around behind the counter. After a couple times of rolling around he will pop up again. Keep firing from behind the signs and you will be safe. If he moves to the other side of the store, move to the opposite side. There are tons of signs so pick any of them.

    *Need a pistol or two, and some juices*

    The convicts are the guys driving the Hummer with the m60 on the back firing at the survivors. They are located in the park. Get behind something - cover is the key. I hid behind a tree. Take out the gunner - it takes about 5 shots. The convicts are easy, like zombies. A couple shots and they drop. After the gunner is dead, run up and take the heavy machine gun off the Hummer. Sometimes the guys get stuck on a tree, so then is a good time to go for it. After you kill the gunner, aim for the driver. Once again 5 shots or so, and the guy is dead. Then the baseball guy is all yours. The machine gun comes off but won't fit in your inventory. So its either machine gun or hummer fun. Enjoy your new offroad vehicle, it runs zombies over easily.

    Steven, the Oversized Grocery Manager
    *Need pistols and a shotgun or sniper rifle*

    Steven is a fat guy, pushing an ultra heavy shopping cart. You have as much life as you want in the supermarket. The thing you don't want though, is to be seen on top of the shelves, that's when he pulls out a shotgun. He's really accurate too. Try to stay near the dairy, and he will charge at you with the cart. That's when you unload on him with with anything long range you have. Keep repeating, and if he gets close run to the other side of a isle or a container or something. Hes fairly easy and only pulls out his shotgun if you are truly unreachable by his cart.

    Carlito (Food Court)
    *Dont really need anything except a pistol*

    This is the first boss. You're in a food court, and a food court has.. food in it. So of course he is easy once you get ahold of the controls. Brad and you are behind some coveras normal getting shot at by the crazy carlito. He has a machine gun and grenades. Brad will give you more ammo and pistols if you run out. Try to stay behind stuff like a chair or a wall and peek out to fire at the maniac when he's on the top of a food place. He runs between the 3 windows in the middle. You can shoot him from behind, but he does see you, and once again you'll get full of lead by his machine gun. Keep firing at him through the windows. After about 20-30 shots he's defeated, then the cut scene of him escapeing commences!

    Carltio (Entrance Plaza)
    *Need a sniper rifle and some food*

    This is the second time you run into Carltio. Your story may be different. He's in the Entrance Plaza and Brad runs up and hits you in the back. Oh no whats that? Oh its the crazy old fart who tried hitting you with a cane hanging. So what do we do? We go to save him! Carltio has a Barret, aka huge sniper rifle. He sits around 50-60 feet away on the second floor. Go up the stairs with Brad and stay behind the pillars. Sometimes the trees get in the way but just sit back and snipe. Carlito stays in that one area. Shoot him once or twice and he runs in a circle. Run back and then to another pillar. Shoot him 3 times, and then run to the next pillar. Repeat, and repeat. He falls pretty easy. Then another cutscene happens. No spoiler here... Even though this guy was an asshole.

    Ghost of Frank West

    Leisure Park

    When playing Dead Rising, I experienced the weirdest thing. I decided to stay in the leisure park and see how long I could last with no food. I was outside for like five game hours, and suddenly I started to glow! It was so weird. I looked like a spirit. And every time I walked close to other zombies, they started glowing too! I went inside and I stopped glowing. I went back outside and I stopped. It was really weird.
