Case 8-2: Hideout is the seventeenth case Frank West receives in Dead Rising.

It is activated immediately after completing Case 8-1: Jamming Device, and is completed when Frank escorts Isabela to Carlito's Hideout in North Plaza and watches the cut scene.


After the 8-1 cutscene, head out onto the rooftop and speak to Isabela, where she is waiting for Frank - if Frank doesn't, she will just stand by the air vents. It is suggested to leave her next to the vents until Frank gets the elevator cleared of zombies, that way Frank doesn't have to worry about hurting her. Take the elevator down to the Warehouse and out into Paradise Plaza. Cross Leisure Park and enter North Plaza.

Isabela Keyes is Frank's "escort" for this mission, and she is not quite as useless as other survivors, given that she starts out armed with a handgun and will actually use it. However, she will charge headlong into crowds of zombies in a manner experienced players have come to expect of the game's artificial intelligence, the solution is to arm Frank with a powerful melee weapon beforehand, activate Frank's guide arrow and clear her path for her.

The entrance to Carlito's Hideout is down the side corridor towards the Huntin' Shack gun store, in the last empty store on the left. The hunting store should be empty at this point, so it's advisable to head in and pick up at least a couple of shotguns from behind the counter, before Frank goes to the empty store and climbs up into the Hideout.

Isabela: It's no good... It's password protected. I'll try words we both might know... Family stuff... Things like that...

Frank stares behind the laptop at a cord connected to the laptop

Frank: What's this cable?

Isabela: It looks like part of jamming device. I will not be able to disable it unless I log in.

Jessie: (through transceiver) Frank... Can you hear me? I found something interesting on a security feed from inside a store. Could you come back here. I need you to check it out.

Frank: Alright. I'm headed back now.[1]

Trivia Edit

  • The player can't bring any survivors with him to the hideout as Isabela will say that it's too dangerous. The player has to either kill or bring them to the security room to proceed with the case.
