"There’s a guy standing near the entrance to the Atlantica Casino. It looks like he’s carrying some sort of briefcase."
Stacey Forsythe

Big Game Stakes is an unannounced mission in Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record.

Janus Razo is looking for an armed bodyguard to take him and his winnings to safety.


Janus Razo is located outside the entrance to the Atlantica Casino in Fortune Park. Janus will call out to Chuck and offers some of his money if he accepts to protect him. Chuck tells Janus that he can follow him to the Safe House if he wants to. Before Janus joins, he will ask if Chuck has a firearm. If not he will refuse to go with Chuck until he gets one. Once he is escorted to the Safe Room he will reward Chuck with $70,000.

Janus reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role, but he is located in the Food Court instead, on top of the circular platform with the moose head. His reward is also reduced to just $20,000.

Mission DialogueEdit

Dialogue of the mission in the Off the Record game files. All text may not be actually used in the final game.


  • Janus will join if the firearm is a water gun.
  • Janus will refuse any food or weapons offered to him.
  • If Janus dies he will drop his Money Case, breaking the case will drop $50,000.
  • The name of the unannounced scoop was taken from the PC version's coding. GameSpot also names the mission the same name.[1]
  • Janus's protection of his money case is similar to Gemini Vargas's concern for her money case in the Case Zero mission Win Some Lose Some.
  • The author of the official guide uses the name Janus Survivor.[2]
