Increased Gambling Winnings

Gain additional money when gambling. It has not been confirmed whether or not this includes Poker Games[4]

Off the RecordEdit

  • In Off the Record, the Sports Fan outfit is automatically available within the game, though the four pieces of it must first be found. The Sports Fan Face Paint is found on the Americana Casino upper platforms above the security office, where Zombrex was previously found in Dead Rising 2.
  • In Off the Record, the power of unlimited alcohol consumption is NOT extended to escorted survivors. They can still become drunk and vomit. The Party Time Achievement can still be obtained while Frank wears this suit.[5]
  • In Off the Record, Frank's hair is a two-tone red and yellow color when wearing the Sport Fan Helmet, unlike Chuck's hair which turns green.
  • The description of this clothing: Turn Frank into the ultimate tailgate partygoer with this 4-piece clothing pack! Wearing just one piece will grant you an iron stomach, granting extra health from food and allowing you to eat anything with no risk of illness! You'll also get bonuses with sports weapons as well as a special charge attack with the Football! Includes Shoes, Clothes, Facepaint and Helmet. Access them right away at the clothing locker in the Safe House bathroom.[6]
  • The special charge attack with the football has been removed for unknown reasons. Attempting to perform it will result in a regular toss. Joining a co-op game as Chuck will yield the same result.

Skills PackEdit

v · d · e Skills packs are downloadable costumes which can be found in the Safe House bathroom Clothing Locker.

For Dead Rising 2, the Ninja, Psychopath, Solider of Fortune, and Sports costumes were first offered as pre-order bonuses. After October 12, 2010, a player could purchase these Dead Rising 2 costumes. These costumes can be used during co-op.[2][7][8] Off the Record separates these four costume's parts and scatters them throughout Fortune City for Frank to find or for Frank to earn.

For Off the Record, the Cosplay Warrior costume was announced as a pre-order bonus on July 21, 2011. The Cyborg, Fire Fighter, and Barbecue Chef were not offered as pre-order bonuses. They are downloadable content.


Dead rising Football Uniform
  • The Dead Rising 2 Beta revealed in the 2009 Toyoko Game Show has zombies with the number 88 on their football jersey. These zombies were later scrapped.
  • The Football Uniform has a football jersey also with the number 88 on it, which looks very similar to this jersey.
