Dead Rising Wiki

Each of the DLC Skill Packs cost $1.99 on PSN and Steam and 160 Microsoft Points on XBL.

Like the DLC Skill Packs of the original Dead Rising 2, only one piece of the costume is needed to gain the skills, as such, wearing 1 piece of gear from each of the 4 sets will give you the skills of all four sets! (Although it will appear horribly mismatched if Frank/Chuck is dressed this way.)

The Original Dead Rising 2 Skills Packs (Ninja, Psycho, Soldier of Fortune and Sports Fan) are not compatible with Off the Record. They are however available as unlockable costume items. But unlike the DLC skill packs, all 4 pieces of the set must be worn to get the associated skills. Similar to the Knight Armor and Protoman outfits, all items for a suit are obtained in different ways(i.e. buying the Soldier googles from a pawnshop, or defeating Carl Schliff to get the Psychopath clothes). All the original skill packs may be found in Sandbox mode. This is recommended if one should go for these skill packs, as there are no time constraints nor any particularly difficult psychopaths roaming around.
