Dead rising Rooftop Massacre

Rooftop Massacre is a single-player sandbox challenge in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

Location: Atlantica Casino roof.

Prerequisites: Available immediately after starting Sandbox Mode.

Mission: Kill as many zombies as you can in 30 seconds!


  • Gold (40 kills)
  • Silver (20 kills)
  • Bronze (10 kills)



  • To achieve the gold medal, it is highly recommended to use AOE weapons such as the Blambow, the Plate Launcher, or the Super B.F.G. The Electric Crusher is also highly effective. 
  • The Boomstick combo card is extremely useful for leveling up, which is why it makes sense to complete this challenge as fast as you can. This can also make the main storyline much easier with a high-level Frank.
  • One of the best weapons to use is the Electric Crusher, as a single heavy attack in a crowd of zombies can kill up to 12 at once. Do the ground slam four times and the gold medal is in the bag. The best part - the combo card is not needed for the heavy attack!
  • The player can also just opt to use four queens for this mission, as they can be thrown from the starting position into the small hordes.
  • The Paddlesaw can be used to achieve gold, but this isn't the easiest to do since neither of the two hordes are particularly big.


  • The co-op challenge counterpart to this is Tea For Two.
