—Game description

The Protoman Helmet can be collected after saving Jack Ellis during Welcome to the Family. If the player beat him in strip poker during Ante Up, he gives the Protoman Helmet, identical to how the Knight Helmet is won in Dead Rising 2. The helmet can also be obtained by killing Jack in Sandbox Mode. He is found in the Arena at 12pm on the first day.

Protoman Blaster and Shield[]

After finishing a game with an S ending, the Protoman Blaster and Shield are located in the Safe House restrooms. The blaster shoots energy balls similar to the one in Dead Rising, although not as strong. Wearing the Protoman Boots and/or helmet with the blaster adds an explosion to every shot. It will reappear in the safe house regardless of how many are in the player's inventory, however, it will not spawn at all in Sandbox Mode.

Protoman Armor[]
