Dead Rising 2: Case West Weapon Combo Guide

This guide is geared towards helping players build all weapon combos.  However, the “Handy Man” achievement for building all the new combos is a little tricky.  In order to get the achievement, build ONLY the following seven weapons:  Shocker, Zap N’ Shine, Lightning Gun, Reaper, Impact Blaster, Sterilizer, Laser Gun.

I realize you have to build the Laser Sword and the Lightning Gun to then build the Laser Gun, and that is fine for you to do.  If you build any other weapon before these 7 (8 if you count Laser Gun components), the achievement won’t unlock.  You will then have to move your save file to another memory unit or delete it from your hard drive and start a new game from a memory device that contains no previous Case West data.  Then you will need to build the previously listed 7 weapons in order to unlock this achievement.

Drill Bucket (Drill + Bucket)

The Drill can be found in the Loading Bay on the ground, in front of the 3 little shelves against the wall opposite of the Maintenance Room.   The Bucket can be found in the Storage Bay.  From the Loading Bay, walk up the big ramp and turn left as soon as you enter the Storage Bay.  The Bucket is on the ground a few feet away from the drivable cart.  Combine the two weapons and you can use the drill bucket by getting close to a zombie and placing the bucket on their heads for instant kills.
