Dead rising Crowd Pleaser
"Gather as many zombies as you can in front of the stage in 1 minute!"

Crowd Pleaser is a challenge in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.[1][2]

The goal is to attract as many zombies to the Slot Ranch Casino stage as possible within the given time limit. This challenge mirrors the One Hit Wonder mission in the story mode.

To unlock this challenge, Frank must kill 300 zombies in sandbox mode.


  • Gold (25 kills)
  • Silver (15 kills)
  • Bronze (10 kills)



  • Items that will lure zombies include the Fountain Lizard, Firecrackers, Casino Chips, Toy Helicopter and the Giant Spaceship Toy.
    • Items like firecrackers and casino chips attract a zombie's attention through movement and color, whereas items like the toy helicopter and space ship attract zombies using sound. Using a combination of both makes this challenge easier.
  • The gold medal can generally be achieved without using props, if Frank knows the Celebrate skill move. Simply stand at the front of the stage and use it repeatedly. Hold down the left direction on the D pad to perform the move. The effect will be greater if Frank is wearing the Sports Fan outfit, as zombies are automatically more drawn to this outfit, even without the Celebrate cheer. 
  • Using Zombait is a good way to lure zombies to the stage. Make sure to take off the Ninja Outfit, as this clothing makes zombies ignore Frank.
  • Breaking the chairs near the slot machines can help prevent zombies from getting stuck on the environment.
