Barricade Pair (A & B) is a scoop in Dead Rising.

It takes place in Weber's Garments in Al Fresca Plaza and involves rescuing a pair of survivors, Burt Thompson and Aaron Swoop, from a barricaded store.

Overview[edit | edit source]

Upon arriving at Al Fresca Plaza, Frank West finds several items piled at the entrance of Weber's Garments. After breaking down the flimsy barricade, he finds Burt Thompson wielding a baseball bat and Aaron Swoop cowering in a corner. Burt immediately starts to attack Frank. Frank will need to hit Burt five times to get him and Aaron to join Frank, with a weapon that is not too powerful.

When Burt says "Shit! Just leave me alone, you son of a bitch!" Frank can then talk to Burt, convincing him that Frank is bringing them to safety, and lead him back to the Security Room. Aaron will automatically join Frank when Burt does.

Give Burt some of the health in the back and make sure both Burt and Aaron have a weapon. Note that when Frank gives a survivor food, they drop the weapon and Frank needs to pick it up and give it to them again.

In Chop Till You Drop, completing this scoop will reward Frank with Protein and $50,000.

Dialogue[edit | edit source]

Subduing Burt

Burt rushes to attack Frank

Burt: Dammit! Just what I need! Another crazy person harassing me!

Frank hits Burt

Burt: Shit! Just leave me alone, you son of a bitch!

Frank: Knock it off, ya little punk! I'm not here for a fight! Just listen to me!

Burt: You win. Do whatever you want. Talk to me... Kill me... Whatever.

Frank: Listen to me. I came here to help you guys. I can take you someplace safe.

Burt: Shit! Why the hell didn't you just say that first? Get me the hell out of here already!

Aaron: C'mon, Burt! I wanna go, too![1]

If Frank kills Aaron, Burt will refuse to join and will continue to attack Frank. Even if Frank leaves the Al Fresca Plaza then returns shortly after, Burt will be waiting in the plaza to attack Frank.

Aaron: Aaaagh! No! Get away from me! Don't kill me!

Frank: Unless you're in a hurry to die, you'll shut the hell up an follow me. We don't need any extra noise.

Aaron: A... A... Alright. Just let me go with you. I really don't wanna die.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Weapon items blocking the entrance

During this scoop there are some additional food and weapons in the store which do not appear again. The following weapons are barricading the door:

The following are in the back corner of the store near Aaron Swoop:

  • Cookies (2)
  • Milk
  • Cardboard Box
  • So long as Burt is still alive and has not yet been recruited, if Frank leaves and reenters Al Fresca Plaza, any of these items that have picked up, moved, or destroyed will reset in their original positions.
  • Barricade Pair - A is Burt's scoop and Barricade Pair - B is Aaron's. As they are separate scoops it is possible for Frank to locate one but not the other, leave the area, have the one that was located die, return, and still be able to rescue the one who was not located.
  • Should Aaron die before Burt is located, only his scoop will be removed from the Scoop Queue. When Frank enters Al Fresca Plaza, the barricade and other items will appear and getting Burt to join proceeds as normal.
  • Should Burt die before Aaron is located, both his scoop and Aaron's will be removed from the Scoop Cue. Despite the fact that his scoop is gone, Aaron will still continue to appear for the normal duration of the scoop. However none of the scoop related items will appear and etting Aaron to join can be difficult as Aaron will sometimes ignore Frank. Frank cannot talk to him until he says "Aaaagh! No! Get away from me! Don't kill me!" If this happens Frank can wait until Aaron decided to acknowledge his presence, leave the area and return, or simply leave him to die.
