Roger, Jack, and Thomas Hall are encountered when Frank West arrives at the Entrance Plaza to rescue Wayne Blackwell, who has been pinned behind the counter of Estelle's Fine-lady Cosmetics by the trio. Roger encourages Thomas to shoot Frank, claiming that they're doing it to survive. Thomas, though initially torn, decides to heed his father's and brother's orders.

After he is killed, he drops his sniper rifle. After defeating all three of the snipers, you can rescue Wayne Blackwell.

Battle Style[]

Roger attacks using a sniper rifle from afar, but lacks any close range attack. He will run away if Frank approaches him, until he is at a safe distance.

Sniper Rifle: Roger's only attack is to fire his sniper rifle from afar. Roger is the most accurate of the trio and his shots rarely miss. After firing each shot, Roger needs to take a second or so to bolt a new round into the chamber.

Roger (along with Jack and Thomas) appear at Leisure Park at 0:00:00 - 2:00:00. When killed, he drops a pack of cookies, an orange, a golden brown pizza, a fire ax, and a hunting knife.[Verification needed]

  • Roger is pictured in the "Perfect Gunner" achievement, referencing his proficiency with firearms and his expert aim.
  • Roger Hall's voice actor, Steve Blum also voices Cliff Hudson, another psychopath found in Dead Rising.
  • His name may be a reference to Fred Rogers, a famous man who was a sniper in the military.
  • Just like the Hunters from Dead Rising 2, the Hall family does not have a theme song or ending cutscene after they are killed. However, there is a music file in the Xbox 360 files that plays during the fight on Chop 'till You Drop. This differs from other psychopaths who fight in pairs, such as Roger Withers and Reed Wallbeck in Dead Rising 2 as you don't earn the PP bonus until both are defeated (and then an ending cutscene plays, regardless of which one is defeated first).
  • Jack and Roger are the names of two antagonists in the novel "Lord of the Flies". In the novel, both Jack and Roger are part of a group of primitive hunters who pressure others into joining them. 
  • They are the only psychopaths that don't have a theme. 
  • Roger has a photo op that is worth up to 10,000 PP. He and Jack will high five after successfully shooting Frank.
  • He looks similar to the sniper from Team Fortress 2, notably the glasses and the lower face section.
