Stand near any ledge you can jump on. When you hear Leon coming, try to get him to hit the ledge and get stuck. Then, jump on the ledge, and simply keep hitting him with a melee weapon until he has been defeated.

Try to lure Leon into a maintenance room. Then, close the doors, and keep hitting him with a melee weapon until he has been defeated.

Get the motorbike from the front of the arena. Drive it to the fireworks store at Silver Strip. Get rockets and ride the bike to the alley with the maintenance room. Get a metal pipe and ride the bike to the rock canyon. Enter the maintenance room in the rocks and create a rocket launcher. Exit the door of the maintenance room and stand in the left side corner. Save the game. When Leon appears from the left side, he will run into the wall. Shoot him with the rocket launcher and repeat until he has been defeated.

You can defeat most psychopaths by attacking them with the Knife Gloves (Bowie Knife + Boxing Gloves) while under the effect of the Pain Killer drink (Beer + Beer or Vodka + Vodka).

Use the following trick to easily kill Sgt. Dwight during Case 6-2. When you enter Fortune Park, go to the red SUV. It costs $2 million to unlock by purchasing the keys. Get in the SUV and drive to the entrance of the underground area. Squeeze the SUV into the underground area. When you get to the entrance for the loading bay, notice that it is blocked off by a line of large boxes. It is possible to drive over these boxes and squeeze the SUV under the security gate, which will trigger the cinematic for the Boss fight against Sgt. Dwight. After the cinematic, you will be on foot again. However, if you look at where you entered, you will see the SUV is stuck halfway in the room. Get in the SUV and squeeze it in the rest of the way. You can now use it to kill Sgt. Dwight.

When you go down the the tunnels, go directly to the second maintenance room on the left side, following the arrow towards the mission. There should be a Servbot mask and lawnmower outside. Combine those to make the Superslicer. Take this to the fight. Whenever he stops to reload, charge him with the Superslicer on. If done correctly, you can defeat him in about five hits.

Collect the following items to unlock the achievement:

Bag of marbles
Beach ball
Funny painting (obtained on the case 4 mission "Art Appreciation")
Giant stuffed bull
Giant stuffed donkey
Giant stuffed elephant
Giant stuffed rabbit
Robot bear
Stick pony
Tiger (give it steak or ribs to tame it)
Water gun

Go to Ye Olde Toybox (R107) on the first floor in Royal Flush Plaza. There is an unlimited pile of Lizard Masks. Keep picking up and putting the masks on nearby zombies until you get the "Masquerade" achievement.

Go to Baron Von Brathaus (Y101) in Yucatan Casino. Grab the Mona Lisa painting by the front register and the other painting next to it. Grab the Servbot Mask on the table. Find a nearby zombie, and slam the Mona Lisa painting on it. Slam the other painting on it. Slam the Servbot Mask on it. Then, grab a Large Barrel outside Baron Von Brathaus, and slam it on the zombie with a hard attack to get the "Stick 'Em Up" achievement.

Find a zombie (usually in a crowd) with his hands in the air. Kill him to release the queen in a bottle, as in the original Dead Rising. Get a beer and go to the candy store. Take some jelly beans. Combine the jelly beans and beer to create nectar. Combine the nectar and the queen to unlock the achievement, as well as a combo card.

Before the psychopath battle with Ted at the Yucatan Casino, collect four steaks. Then, defeat Ted without hitting Snowflake in the process. Once Ted has been killed, continue running from Snowflake, but periodically drop the steaks as you go. Lead Snowflake in circles until she has eaten all the steaks, making sure not to attack her. Shortly after Snowflake is full, a cutscene will play, and you will get "The Skill To Survive" achievement.

To make your level skyrocket to level 50 go out to Fortune Park and head towards the Atlantica Casino. Don't go in. Instead, follow the wall right until you see a maintenance door. There should be a stick of dynamite and a hunk of meat right outside the door. Pick both of these up head inside and combine them, to get the dynameat. Leave and head right to the fireworks stand. Grab some firecrackers and jump up on top of the stand. Lure a large amount of zombies near you using the firecrackers, then when you feel your group is large enough, jump into the middle of the crowd and use the dynameat, and get out quickly. The resulting explosion will cause your PP bar to go through the roof with points. All of the items respawn when you leave Fortune Park and come back so you can do this as many times as you like. This trick is still very effective at levels 45+.

Destroy an ATM machine. Each one will drop between $2,000 and $2,500.

Find a slot machine that has see a pile of $100 in front of it. You can win on that slot machine up to five times. Go to the map by entering any casino or the machines by the Sports Car in the Royal Flush Plaza. The machine will then give out winnings again.

Make sure you have at least $25,000 to $50,000 before doing this trick. Go to the Slot Ranch casino. On one of the walls is a Heart slot machine that has two buy in amounts ($100 and $1,000). Select $1,000. Keep playing this machine until you have $6 million. It will not take very long. Then, buy as much as desired. The best combinations (hearts fill in for the third slot), three hearts are $100,000; two hearts and a dollar sign are $100,000; two hearts and a diamond are $50,000; and two hearts and a seven are $25,000.

At any time in the game after you first make it to the safe house and save your game, go to "quit game" and restart the story. After this DO NOT PRESS START TO SKIP THE CUT-SCENE. This will allow you do do the opening "Slicecycles" sequence again and gain $10,000 for coming in 1st place. This process can be done as many times as you'd like.

Player B joins Player A and drops the magazine and leaves the game. Player A saves the game. Now Player A has two copies of the magazine!
