"Sorry, Kid. But I guess my option out of this B.S is to get rid of all the witnesses"
—Phil, before attacking Nick/Dick and Warren

Phil is a hostile survivor in Dead Rising 3. He is encountered during the side mission Will or Away in Chapter 5.

Will or Away[edit | edit source]

After a call from Jamie about an "anxious-looking dude", Nick finds Phil in front of his house. When approached, Phil asks him to go inside his house (which is filled with zombies) and collect a will for him, which is supposed to allow him to retire. However, while exploring the house, Nick encounters Warren Anderssen Jr., who explains that Phil, who was his step-father, locked him inside the house and let the zombies inside in order to kill him and assure that the will is his.

Nick goes to Phil to confront him about this, and Phil starts to blame Warren's mother for marrying him in the first place, saying that he should get what's his. He then says that he needs to "get rid of the witnesses" and attacks them. After he's killed, Warren will join Nick's posse.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Phil could be seen as a subversion of the "family reunion" mission in the Dead rising series. In most missions that involve getting loved ones back together (Love Lasts a Life Time, Above the Law, Lost, etc), the player simply bringing them back together is all they need to do with failure resulting in defection or suicide. In Phil's case, he excepted/wanted Warren to be dead and his survival is what leads to his betrayal.
  • If modded to appear on the Bulletin Board, Phil is revealed to have a portrait and a full set of survivor voice lines.
