"What a dreamboat! Are you really just a journalist?"
—Alyssa Laurent

Alyssa Laurent is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop.

She is found in Huntin' Shack in North Plaza during the unmarked scoop Gun Shop Standoff. She has occupied the gun store with two other survivors, and is initially distrustful of Frank.

Gun Shop Standoff[edit | edit source]

Main article: Gun Shop Standoff

Alyssa has occupied the gun store in North Plaza with two other survivors, Jonathan Picardsen and Brett Styles. When Frank approaches, they mistake him for a zombie and open fire until he exits the store. Once they realize their mistake, Jonathan goes over to ask Frank what he wants with them.

Frank offers to take them to the Security Room and promises that a helicopter is coming to rescue them. Alyssa is doubtful as she has seen that the door to the Security Room has been welded shut. Brett then requests Frank to provide some proof by bringing them a picture of the duct.

Once Frank shows them the required photo, the three survivors agree to follow him.

It's possible that she escaped Willamette with Otis and the others when the special forces arrived.

Infinity Mode[edit | edit source]

Main article: Infinity Mode

In Infinity Mode, Alyssa appears in Theater 4 at Colby's Movieland with Verlene Willis from 3:07:00 to 3:19:00 and is armed with Submachine Gun. In her equipment she carries Cheese, an Acoustic Guitar, 2x4, a Mailbox Post, and a Ceremonial Sword.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In Chop Till You Drop, completing Gun Shop Standoff and rescuing Alyssa rewards Frank with the Ammo Belt.
  • Judging by how she runs towards Brett Styles when Jonathan tells her to be quiet, he might be either a close friend or a romantic partner of hers.
  • Alyssa is among the few survivors who can be effective with a handgun, as she is very accurate and not easily intimidated - therefore she won't kill herself with it if she gets surrounded.
