Intro

Your destination is ahead: Willamette, Colorado. The population figure is also the number of Zombies you need to kill for the Zombie Genocider achievement.

I'm suited up as Megaman -- my outfit from the previous save game.

This optional photo shoot is an early opportunity to grab some PP - Prestige Points. Extra points are awarded for capturing exceptional events as they happen, like this car and its driver being brutalized.

As the chopper Continues down Main Street you'll want to snap a shot of this zombie mob attacking a school bus.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 4
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 4

The real money is on this gas station farther down the street. Be sure to keep your camera trained on it to capture this explosion.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 5

Be sure to get some close ups of the flaming zombies.

Lastly, you'll want to catch the drama unfolding as a woman is pursued by zombies on this rooftop.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 7
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 7

Sadly, it doesn't end well. Try to get a shot of them falling mid-air.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 8

Soon after, military choppers confront your pilot and you ask for a quick dust off on the rooftop of the Willamette mall.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 9
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 9

Also on the rooftop is Carlito - a man who seems to know more about zombies and plunging necklines than perhaps he should.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 10
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 10

Briefly chat with Carlito then use this door to enter the security room.

This couch is one of the few save points located around the game world. Note that I have six health squares and am level 50 -- one of the benefits of Dead Rising is its replayability. You can either save at a save point like this to continue your game, or if you die you can choose to save your character's stats, thus beginning a new game with a stronger character.

Continue through the red door.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 13
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 13

Examine the surveillance monitor for a short cutscene. Continue through the yellow door to the right.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 14
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 14

Proceed through this "Staff Only" door.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 15
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 15

Follow the long corridor to the Entrance Plaza.

Another cutscene ensues. You witness an old woman searching for a dog, then you see this pretty young thing.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 17
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 17

No time to ogle pretty girls though -- there's zombies about.

Amazingly, Frank hasn't realized that the folks clawing at the vestibule aren't dermatology patients waiting for their appointments.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 19
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 19

You've got some free time to explore now, but if you want to get right to the action, run straight down the corridor ahead.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 20
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 20

You've been asked to find debris for the barricade, and those benches look like just the thing.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 21
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 21

Approach the benches and a new cutscene plays. This crazed woman insists on dismantling the barricade so that she can get to her dog.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 22
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 22

By removing the barricade and opening the doors, she unleashes the horrors that comprise the rest of the game.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 23
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 23

The angry voice of reason is soon heard from above - it's our Alpha Male In Charge, Brad.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 24
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 24

Several melee weapons are available in the immediate area. The benches and HDTV are too slow and heavy for my play style. My preference goes to the 2x4. Also nearby is a bag of chips that can be eaten to restore your health.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 25
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 25

You want to reach one of the two staircases ahead. Don't stress over this seemingly-impossible task. At lower levels you run so slowly that you're almost certain to get nabbed by a zombie.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 26
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 26

Whether you make it to the stairs or not, you'll end up back at the security room. The only difference is a slightly different cutscene.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 27
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 27

Talk to Jessie then grab the apple and two coffee creamers for health.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 28
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 28

The staff door is welded shut, so your only way out is through the air shaft on the left. Talk to Otis first to receive the transceiver (cell phone) and map.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 29
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 29

Keep right to find Jeff Meyer. He's looking for his wife. Talk to him and he'll join you.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 30

Point your camera through the nearby fence to take some zombie shots for extra PP.

Natalie can be found around the left corner of the roof.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 32
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 32

Once Natalie has joined, climb up here to return to the air shaft.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 33

Wait for Jeff and Natalie to catch up before entering the Security Room.

Congratulations on completing your first escort!

Find more Coffee Creamer and another Apple near Jessie then return to the roof. There are two ways into the warehouse from the roof. One is this elevator on the right.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 36
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 36

The second way into the mall is through this warehouse door. To find it, head left from the air shaft. You'll find the door near where you picked up Natalie.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 37
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 37

The door will place you high above the floor, where you can access items like this 2x4 atop the shelves. Hop across to the shelves ahead to find a sledgehammer.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 38
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 38

Head right off the elevator to find this Lead Pipe. These items always spawn every time you enter the warehouse, and you'll be coming this way many times.

Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 39
Dead Rising Walkthrough - Dead Rising 39

Otis often rings as you enter the warehouse. This time, he calls with scoop, an optional side quest. This one is called, "Cut From the Same Cloth."

Proceed down this corridor to begin the first Case.
