[w1] 1 Introduction:
This is the one and ONLY time I will say this: ((THIS GUIDE WILL
CONTAIN SOME MINOR SPOILERS, THOUGH I WILL TRY TO AVOID GIVING STORY BITS
AWAY)). This guide is designed to help players get the Frank the Pimp
Achievement with as little frustration as possible. It is assumed that players
who read this guide have at least a basic understanding of the game, such as
weapons and items, locations, and escorting survivors. The Achievement can be
accomplished at any level, but the higher the level of the player, the easier
it will be. This guide will not be a walkthrough to help a player achieve the
True Ending, nor will it help players attempt to save all survivors. This
guide will not list methods to kill survivors or psychopaths; lord knows there
are plenty of those on this site.
For the easiest attempt at Frank the Pimp and some of the other
achievements listed, it would be advised you do not attempt to go for the Saint
or True Ending using this walkthrough. Other Achievements possible during this
walkthrough include (but not limited to):
Some of the achievements listed above are not directly tied to the
Frank the Pimp Achievement, but due to the amount of time you will have on your
hands for about an hour or so, they are easy to do while you wait. Make sure
though that you have the items you need to do the walkthrough before you go
about trying to do other achievements, which leads me to
[w2] 2 Preparation:
There are a few things you will want to carry on you at all times to
make your life much easier:
Food There is Orange Juice in an infinite supply at the restaurant on the
second floor of Paradise Plaza. The location is in the cooler near the cash
register. Orange Juice is a good healing item giving 4 blocks of health back.
There is a better item mentioned during the walkthrough, but OJ should always
be stocked up on if you are in the area.
Weapon If you have already done Zombie Genocider or 5 Day Survivor
Achievements, then the Real Megabuster (will be stated as RMB from now on) and
Real Laser Sword (will be stated as RLS from now on)are the best weapons to
take with you, but if you have not gotten them, use what ever you can. There
is a Shotgun in the Entrance Plaza the first time you fight zombies if you are
brave enough to pull it off a victim. A Sledgehammer can be found in the top
area of the Warehouse, but you will want to avoid using this item once you
start getting survivors. A sub-machinegun is found on the blue awning above
the warehouse entrance in Paradise Plaza. You get it by jumping up to the Blue
Awning from the stairs a couple shops down. There is also a katana near the OJ
listed above by jumping out the window by the cooler and landing on the awning
outside the restaurant. For the most part though, Martial Arts is your primary
weapon, use the Double Lariat to save ammo or durability on weapons. Make sure
you don't have a weapon equipped or you will have to go fetch it though.
Finally, try to keep a couple queens on you if at all possible. They save you
a lot of heartache and are needed for at least one of your female survivors.
Survivors You will be killing all survivors other than the following: Leah,
Pamela, Heather, Kay, Lilly, Kelly, Janet, and Jennifer. Seven of the
survivors listed will be achieved within 10 minutes time; Leah is the only
survivor you will have to escort for about an hour. If you had to Escort any
female survivor, Leah is the best one to do though. Leah can be carried, and
while you carry her, most Zombies will not be able to grab a hold of you. This
makes traveling very easy with minimal fighting. Using a waypoint you can park
Leah in safe areas around the mall and go about Frank's business as long as you
remember to pick her up again before you leave. This enables you to pass the
time with minimal escorting. Some other FAQs list other girls to be saved,
however I find that this way gives you a minimal amount of tedious (and
sometimes frustrating) escorting. So let's get to the meat of this FAQ
[w3] 3 Walkthrough
Event Resolution Checklist:
 Natalie and Jeff on the Roof (escort, kill, or leave them)
 Backup for Brad (kill Brad or do not complete 1-4)
 Cut from the Same Cloth (Kill Ken)
 Barricade Pair A & B (Kill Burt and Aaron)
 A Mother's Lament (Save Leah)
 Convicts and Sophie in Leisure Park (leave the park after cut scene)
Start a new 72 hour mode and skip through photography and cut scenes by
pressing start if you want. When you finish with Carlito, enter the Security
room, grab the RMB and RLS if you have them and make your way to the Entrance
Plaza. Get through the next cut scene and initiate the next cut scene by
heading to the pile of benches and garbage in the back area of the bottom
floor. After the cut scene, fight your way to the stairs. Heading towards the
stairways, there is a shotgun on the corpse surrounded by Zombies to the right
if you want it. Once you get to the top of the stairs, get another cut scene
and start the actual game.
Talk to Otis to get your map and walkie talkie, and then exit the air
duct. You will meet your first two survivors here, Natalie and Jeff. You can
escort them, kill them, or leave them (make sure you have visually seen both of
them). After you finish with them, head through the warehouse and get yet
another cut scene and a handgun. Depending how long it has taken you to get
through the cut scenes at this point, you may or may not have "Cut from the
Same Cloth" Scoop, but you can ignore it for now. Grab some weapons and head
out towards the Leisure Park area and move to the food court for "Backup for
After the cut scene, you can either try to kill Carlito, or just kill
Brad and never have to worry about Cases for the rest of the walkthrough. If
you kill Brad, the path between Entrance Plaza and Paradise Plaza will not open
up, but you will not need to use it for the purposes of this walkthrough
either, so it is up to you. If you haven't dealt with "Cut from the Same
Cloth," you can do so now by heading back to Paradise Plaza. When you get to
Kent, go ahead and kill him. He is a weakling, use the Katana or something.
Now start heading back to the Food Court and to your eventual destination, Al
Fresca Plaza. You should definitely have gotten "Barricade Pair A & B" by now
and more than likely "A Mother's Lament" as well. If you haven't gotten "A
Mother's Lament" yet, go ahead and screw around in Leisure Park or Food Court
Once you have both scoops head to Al Fresca Plaza and head to the
barricade duo of Burt and Aaron. There is a convenient hardware store near
them which will make killing them easy (Sledgehammer for the win). Next head
over to the Jewelry store and take care of Leah, you should have about 4
conversations with her before she joins you. Get her to crawl herself over the
counter then use the B to Carry her. You will be piggy-backing this girl
around a lot for the next hour or so real time, but that isn't a bad thing.
When you carry a survivor, zombies have difficulty grabbing a hold of you.
This makes travel through the mall quite convenient. Leah will with you most
of the time so you should not have to do much fighting for a little while,
unless you want to. You can take Leah with you to finish up the Entrance Plaza
part of Case 1 if you helped Brad or go about other business if you killed him
(See the section labeled "Other things to do" for ways to pass time). Make
sure you grab some wine in the Food Court and use it or OJ to heal Leah or
yourself whenever you need to. Wine is better than OJ, but you have to leave
and come back to get more than 5. After 6pm make sure you take a step into the
Leisure Park area and get another cut scene. Afterwards, just go back into the
mall; Sophie will die a couple minutes later. Some guides say you should get
Sophie as one of your girls for the Pimp Achievement, but I found that the
scoops were much more difficult to get rid of while trying to escort Sophie and
Leah around the mall.
Event Resolution Checklist:
 Outta Control (Kill the clown, open the shortcut)
 Kill Greg (In Paradise Plaza)
 Take a moment to see cut scene in Warehouse (get a queen)
 Japanese Tourists (Kill them)
 Shadow in North Plaza (kill David)
 Lover's A & B (Kill them)
Waste a little time in Entrance Plaza, Food Court, or North Plaza while
waiting on Outta Control to come up. It should be about 8pm when you get the
call, so you should not have to wait too long. When you get the call head to
Wonderland Plaza and drop Leah off in the Bathroom. Set a waypoint there so
she doesn't leave. Go up to the Space Rider and start the fight with Adam by
examining the Console. After the fight, examine the console again to free
Greg. Escort him to the bathroom, which Leah is slowly limping away from. You
should get back there in time to make sure Leah is ok (give her some OJ or wine
if needed). Once Greg shows you the way to Paradise Plaza, use it and then
kill him once on the other side. Grab Leah and go to the Warehouse for another
cut scene. Kill the zombie by the elevator for a queen and keep it tucked away
in your inventory for now. You should have gotten "Japanese Tourists" scoop by
now so carry Leah back to the bathroom and warp back to Wonderland.
Keep Leah way-pointed in the bathroom and head up to the bookstore.
Kill the tourists and then waste a little more time until you get "Shadow in
the North Plaza" scoop. Go back to the Bathroom, grab Leah and head to the
North Plaza. Head to the under construction store close to the Crislip's side
of the mall. David will be inside, so head in with Leah and kill him. Grab
Leah and run around the Mall some more until around 7am for the "Lover's A & B"
scoop. I recommend going to the grocery store to work on Gourmet achievement
or something, but stay out of Wonderland Plaza. Once you get the call for
"Lovers" head to the Wonderland Plaza and then go kill Ross and Tanya. After
you kill them you will have some more time on your hands (about 15 minutes or
so). Use the time to get a couple more queens, weapons, or items.
Event Resolution Checklist:
 Hatchet Man (kill Cliff and the Prisoners)
 The Coward (kill Gordon)
 Save Pamela and Heather (non-scooped)
 Restaurant Man (kill Ronald)
 Above the Law (kill Jo, save the girls)
 Save Jennifer
At around 9am, you should get a couple scoops. The first will likely
be "Hatchet Man," so make sure you aren't in North Plaza. From this point
until I tell you otherwise, stay out of Paradise Plaza. Get wine in the food
court for healing if you need it. Carry Leah to Crislip's in North Plaza and
kill Cliff inside. Do your best to keep Leah behind the counter if possible.
After the fight take Leah back into the North Plaza and kill the three
survivors in the locked room next to Crislip's. You will have gotten "The
Coward" by now so head to Al Fresca Plaza. He is in the Hardware store, so use
a Sledgehammer to make quick work of him.
If you have been quick you should have no scoops or possibly just
"Restaurant Man." Head to Wonderland Plaza and use the Bathroom to go to
Paradise Plaza now, which you should have been avoiding. Carry Leah and head
to the Toy Store where Pamela and Heather are. Use the Queen you should have
and save Pamela. Then jump through the window and get Heather to join you.
Escort the three girls to the bathroom and waypoint them there. If you have
"Restaurant man," go kill Ronald, otherwise warp to Wonderland Plaza until you
get it. Keep the 3 girls way-pointed to the bathroom at all times.
After you kill Ronald stay in Paradise Plaza until you get the call for
"Above the Law." Warp to Wonderland, save if you feel the need, and way-point
the girls to stay in the bathroom. You will notice that Sally and Nick are not
present. This is because you have 3 survivors already and the 4 from Jo will
give you 7. You cannot have more than 8 in total, but don't worry the last
girl is easier to get than Sally would be. Head to the store with Jo and the
girls and kill Jo. Save the girls and then immediately jump off the top floor
and run to the bathroom to re-way-point the group. Make sure you have all 7.
If you have Queens use them on any girl that may have gotten surrounded by
zombies. Give wine to any girl who got low on life during the return to the
bathroom. This may be the most difficult part of the walkthrough, but keep
your cool. Stay in Wonderland Plaza until 1pm, save again if you feel the
need, and then warp back to Paradise Plaza.
You will get a cut scene as soon as you warp. Quickly kill the
Cultists and save Jennifer. As soon as you get her to join you will get your
Frank the Pimp Achievement (and Tour Guide if you had not gotten that). For
the purposes of this guide, you no longer have to keep playing.
Congratulations on one of the more difficult Achievements to acquire.
[w4] 4 Other Things to Do:
This part of the guide is just for time filler. You do not need to do
any of these things to get Frank the Pimp, they are just for other achievements
if you feel the need. I will not give a walkthrough for these achievements
since you can find them on GameFAQs by other authors. Doing Frank the Pimp
requires a specific type of run through the game, one most players aren't
generally proud of. These extra things help you get things done in games you
would not normally have time to do.
Gourmet Eat all the different foods in the mall. Seon's Food has almost
everything you need, but bear in mind you need Pie from Al Fresca or Paradise
Plaza. You also need Thawed veggies (hold frozen veggies for a while), Rotten
Pizza and Rotten Meat (hold Uncooked and raw versions for a while), and Golden
Brown Pizza and Well Done Steak (cook the uncooked pizza and raw meat in a
microwave). The seven mixed drinks are also a part of this achievement. Use a
Juice Mixing guide for more information on these items.
PP Sticker Photograph the little stickers around the mall (there are 100 in
total). You will not be able to complete this until after you get your Frank
the Pimp achievement from this guide. This is because you need to be captured
by cultists get two stickers, and you will have gotten the achievement as soon
as the cultists appear. Use a PP Sticker guide for assistance on this
Clothes Horse (and Sharp Dresser) Since you will have a lot of time on your
hands, you may as well try a few things on. This achievement is the easiest to
complete while doing Frank the Pimp. Use a Clothing guide for more info.
