Overview (cases/scoops) • BooksClothingFoodPsychopathsStoresSurvivorsWeapons


Prestige points, often abbreviated "PP", are experience points that can be earned in Dead Rising and Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop. By earning prestige points, the player can level up, providing them with upgrades to the player's attributes. Prestige points can earned in various ways, including:

Prestige point gauge and leveling up[]

The PP gauge is located just underneath Frank's life bar. It displays the amount of prestige points Frank currently has. As Frank gains more prestige points, the gauge fills. When it fills completely, his level increases by one.[2]

Level increase benefits[]

A level increase provides Frank with:

  • More life
  • Better attack strength
  • Increased inventory space
  • New skills
  • Increased throwing distance
  • Faster running speed[1]

PP required to level up[]

The following is a list of prestige points required to attain the next level and the cumulative amount needed to reach each level.[3]

Prestige point stickers[]

For a list of PP stickers and their locations, see PP Stickers (Dead Rising).
For PP stickers in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, see PP Stickers (Off the Record).

100 photo bonuses, in the form of small black and white prestige point stickers, are hidden throughout the Willamette Parkview Mall.

These stickers can be found on various objects, items, pictures and signs found all around the mall. If Frank takes a picture of one, he will receive a PP bonus. These stickers are worth 1,000 prestige points each when perfectly photographed, providing a total of 100,000 available prestige points.

In order to find these prestige point stickers, Frank can use the PP sensor displayed at the bottom of the camera's lens. There will be a small percentage number that appears below the photo box. The closer the number is to 100%, the more points will be awarded.

Prestige point stickers can only be photographed once.[5][6]

Photo opportunities[]

Dead rising snuff shot b brad (3)

Photo opportunities, also known as photo ops, give Frank extra prestige points when he snaps shots of certain characters with a yellow PP icon over their heads when they perform specific actions.

Each shot can only be taken once per playthrough. The amount given for each shot will be determined by how well the shot is captured. Always zoom in for the closest possible angle. These are all worth up to a maximum of 10,000 prestige points.[7]
