"Frank, can you come back to the Safe House and check on Lenny? He keeps talking to himself about hidden gold."
Stacey Forsythe

The Secret of Charlie's Gold is an unmarked mission in Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record which starts in the cafeteria of the Safe House on the morning of the third day.


The mission is only available if Chuck rescued Lenny Mooney during the Snowflake mission. It will also not be available if Case 3-2 has not been activated, because the cashier's room containing the vault will be locked.

Lenny tells Chuck a story about some hidden money inside Yucatan Casino’s vault that his brother Charlie hid. Chuck must speak to Lenny multiple times to get the vault access code.

Use Linette’s shortcut from the Royal Plaza bathroom to the Palisades Mall, then head into the Yucatan Casino. The vault is the same vault that Tyrone King's mercenaries were trying to open with a giant drill. Examine the panel to the left of the vault door to open it using Lenny’s passcode.

Once inside there will be 2 deposit boxes Chuck can open, each containing $125,000, for a total of $250,000. If Chuck returns to Lenny after finding the money he will earn an additional 10,000 PP for talking to him again.

If the mission time ends, the deposit boxes will not be there even if Chuck has talked to Lenny.

Mission Dialogue[]

Dialogue of the mission in the Off the Record game files. All text may not be actually used in the final game.


  • The title of the mission is similar to the movie, City Slickers 2: The Legend of Curly's Gold.
  • With debug mode a player can see that the room with the hole in the wall is not there at all before Case 3-2, only the doors.
