There are two cards available for each combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record: an inferior scratch card and a superior combo card. Both cards indicate the two weapons required to build the combo weapon. Possessing the combo card grants the player a PP bonus when using that weapon and also allows the player to employ that weapon's secondary attack. Unlike scratch cards, which are only obtained by combining weapons into a combo weapon (or buying items from a pawnshop), combo cards can be earned through a variety of ways, for example:

  • Learning about a possible combination by examining items and posters throughout the environment
  • Leveling up
  • Defeating certain psychopaths
  • Rescuing certain survivors

Case West: By leveling up - Frank's combo card

Off the Record: Zap N' Shine card is recieved by making the combo weapon. There is no scratch card.[1][2]

Three combo cards are exclusive to Chuck and three are exclusive to Frank. Whenever a character uses a certain weapon, that is not exclusive to him, no matter if he has the combo card or not, that character will not receive the full prestige point amount and that character will not be able to perform all weapon moves.

For example, a player must play as Frank to perform the Reaper's alternate attack and gain full prestige point value per zombie kill with that weapon. Frank will gain 1,000 PP per zombie with the Sterilizer while Chuck only gets 500 prestige point per kill also.[3]

TriviaEdit

Rough initial idea

  • In the Tape it or Die blog, Wallace invented the idea of a combo card.[4]
  • The combo card posters are classified as "cMicroGameItem" and named ComboCardPosterA through ComboCardPosterH in the items.txt file.
