"Chuck! I saw a postal cart driving around Royal Flush Plaza... Maybe you should check it out. There might be Zombrex in one of those packages!"
Stacey Forsythe

Mail Order Zombrex is a Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record mission involving an obsessed, psychotic postman who blames Chuck for the outbreak.


The message screen for this mission states:

GOAL: Investigate the postal cart
DESTINATION: Royal Flush Plaza
Someone is driving a postal cart around the Royal Flush Plaza. There might be Zombrex in one of those packages.

The mail cart is located between The Man's Sport and the Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow kiosk in Royal Flush Plaza. This mission begins by Chuck clicking "Examine" on the mail cart.

Chuck finds Carl trying to complete a delivery at a Royal Flush Plaza shop, but the postman is having trouble finding someone to hand the package to. Chuck approaches Carl, who then tries to have him sign off on the package, but once he realizes who Chuck is, he blames him for the outbreak, having seen the newscaster's reports. Carl then hands Chuck an explosive package and tries to flee in his mail cart, but Chuck chucks the package into the back of the cart, in which Carl is able to escape just in time as the vehicle explodes, sending letters raining down on the men.

Carl then whips out his shotgun and begins his attack on Chuck, firing his gun and hurling more explosive packages at Chuck. However, Carl is eventually defeated in which he dies from his injuries, leaving behind a Zombrex package for Chuck.

v · d · e

  • In the blog entitled "A Post About a Postman (But Not That Movie)" Wallace Hertzog is referring to the Kevin Costner box office bomb The Postman.
  • Wallace closes the "A Post About a Postman (But Not That Movie)" blog saying, "This bud's for you!". This is a reference to a famous iconic statement in American beer commercials, created by the beer company Budweiser.
  • In "A Post About a Postman (But Not That Movie)" Wallace writes "I worked in my father's repair shop, fixing up the town's cars and motorcycles. (If I remember correctly, there were an unusually high number of Dodge Darts there.)" The Dodge Dart is a low priced car built from 1960-1976 in North America.
  • Carl's homemade bombs are similar to Dead Rising psychopath Paul Carson's Molotov Cocktail's in Long Haired Punk and Carlito Keyes bombs in Case 2-2: Rescue the Professor. All three psychopaths dropped bombs as Frank and Chuck were attempting to pursue them.
  • The destroyed mail cart is permanent after the fight with Carl, even in Overtime mode it will still be there and in flames.
  • There is a tattoo on Carl's right arm of a post office logo.
  • His pen says Dead Rising 2.
