Dead Rising Wiki

Survivors are human characters who have survived the zombie outbreak and are still alive when encountered. They require assistance to get to a safe hideout in order to await rescue. Most survivors are found in scoops in Dead Rising or missions in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case West, Dead Rising 2: Off the Record and Dead Rising 3, and are not associated with the cases. Survivors can be recruited and escorted to a safe location for Prestige Point bonuses, as well as other rewards.

Many of the survivors require rescue from the zombies and may require assistance traveling, either because they are too badly injured, too elderly, or too drunk, (or in one case, because they're wearing an outfit that constrains their legs). Some can only be recruited after certain conditions are met, for instance, fulfilling a task or bringing along another survivor. After survivors are recruited, they can mostly be given weapons and food and can be directed to particular locations. Under some conditions, survivors may defect and refuse to be escorted any more. Once escorted to a safe location, the survivors will remain there. However, in Dead Rising 2: Case West, the survivors are employees of the Phenotrans Facility and know their way around, so they do not need escorting to a safe location after helping them out.

At the end of each playthrough, when the respective rescue arrives, the number of survivors rescued will be tallied and will account for an additional Prestige Point bonus.

In Dead Rising 3, survivors are more independent and don't need to be escorted to a safe house. Their improved AI allows them to defend better against the zombies and even scavenge for supplies. They often appear as side missions, that when completed, they may join in as posse members or have a different fate. However, many survivors are found surrounded by zombies, and need to be rescued, although they don't need to be escorted.

Dead Rising 2: Off the Record[]

In Frank West's storytelling of how he would have handled Fortune's End, most survivors from Dead Rising 2 return while a few do not. For those who do appear, they are replaced by five new survivors, in addition to three new Arena victims. Due to the game being non canon, it is unknown whether these survivors actually exist in the Dead Rising universe.
