"Some people are holed up in the North Plaza gun shop. They've taken over Cletus' store!"
Otis Washington, Chop Till You Drop

Gun Shop Standoff is an unannounced scoop in Dead Rising. In Dead Rising: Chop Till You Drop it was given the name Gun Shop Standoff.[1]

The scoop place in Huntin' Shack in North Plaza in the early morning of the third day.

It involves three heavily armed survivors, Jonathan Picardsen, Brett Styles, and Alyssa Laurent, who have taken over the gun store.

Dead Rising[edit | edit source]

Three survivors, Brett Styles, Alyssa Laurent, and Jonathan Picardsen, have taken over Huntin' Shack. As Frank West first enters the store, all three survivors found inside fire at Frank West. Turn around and go back out, and they will realize you're human. Jonathan will come to the door to see if Frank is alright - talk to him.

This prompts them to notice that he is not a zombie. Jonathan goes up to Frank and asks him what he wants with them. Frank reveals that a helicopter is arriving to rescue them, and they should follow him back to the Security Room. However, the survivors do not believe Frank and demands a photo of the vent.

If Frank has taken a photograph of the rooftop air duct into the Security Room, the three gun-toting survivors agree to follow Frank and take refuge in the Security Room. If Jonathan Picardsen is still talking to Frank, and has not agreed to join yet, and Frank starts to walk towards Alyssa and Brett behind the counter, the three of them will resume firing. Brett will also hit Jonathan in the crossfire.

Also, watch out for friendly fire from these three. If Frank is standing between them and a nearby zombie, he will be shot.

Chop Till You Drop[edit | edit source]

There are a few differences when the scoop is completed in Chop Till You Drop.

  • Completion of this scoop and getting an S rank rewards Frank with the Ammo Belt.
  • Taking pictures is disabled. In order to allow this scoop to be completed, two buttons can be pressed upon reaching the vent to simulate taking a picture.
  • Cletus will disappear from the Huntin' Shack during this scoop, but will return once the scoop has been completed.
  • If you unlock this scoop, Greg Simpson will not let you use the shortcut to the gun shop until this mission is complete.

Conversation with the trio

Brett: Kill it!

Alyssa: Brett! Here comes another one!

Brett: Kill it!

Alyssa: Eat this!

Run out the door

Brett: Wait!

Jonathon runs to Frank

Jonathan: You still breathin' there, buddy?

Alyssa: Are you alive?

Jonathan: You've got some real balls man. You got some business with us?

Frank: There's a helicopter coming. It'll be here on Friday. I thought you might want a ride. Come with me, and you'll be out of this hell in no time.

Jonathan: Where's it supposed to land? There's zombies everywhere!

Alyssa: Zombies everywhere!

Frank: There's a heliport on the roof, over in the Entrance Plaza.

Jonathan: But the Security Room door's sealed! Sealed tight! A dead end! I saw it! I know what I saw!

Frank: There's a duct on the roof of Paradise Plaza. It's a straight shot to the Security Room from there.

Alyssa: Sounds fishy to me!

Jonathan: Will you shut up for once, Alyssa!

Jonathan: Not that I trust you completely either, man. Brett! What do you think?

Brett: How bout some proof?

Jonathan: You heard the man. Go find your DUCT and take a picture of it with the camera you got there. Then we can talk.

Give a picture of the Rooftop duct to Jonathan.

Frank: Feast your eyes on this.

Jonathan: Looks kosher to me! Brett!

Brett: Let's do it! Lead the way man.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Brett Styles is carrying a Machinegun, the only time a Machinegun is available in 72 Hour Mode before the special forces enter the mall. If you want this gun, give Brett a food or weapon item and he will drop it.
  • There is extra food on the gun shop counter which is only here during this scoop, including 2 Melons and a Cheese and a some Wine bottles.
  • The picture of the vent required has to be taken in the current playthrough.
  • If Frank is not currently interacting with the trio, or in the correct area, then they will always die at 5pm. This is interesting, considering they are among the most well equipped survivors in the game.
