Easy Items

During gameplay leave the area that has the items you want more of so that the loading screen appears. When you now enter the area again ALL the objects will have respawned.

Hidden Zombrex Locations

Search the indicated locations to find ALL 4 hidden Zombrex stashes in Fortune City. There is no Trophy for collecting Zombrex but it is needed to keep katey alive and reach the Overtime mode.

Defeating Leon

At the front of the arena find the motorbike and ride it to the fireworks store at Silver Strip. Get rockets from there and ride the bike to the alley with the maintenance room. Get a metal pipe and then 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 and save the game. When Leon appears from the left side he will run into the wall. Keep shooting at him with the rocket launcher you created until Leon has been killed.

Juice Combinations

When you mix the following ingredients a juice is created with the corresponding effect. There are 9 different types of drinks you can create and ALL will give you full health. All the ingredients except for the Nectar juice can be found in the food court. If you want any food to respawn just leave the area you're in and travel to another (go from the food court to yucatan casino). Make ALL 9 drinks to get the 'Look At All That Juice!' Trophy.
Energizer (Chuck cannot be injured. This effect lasts for ten seconds.):
Chili + Chili
Taco + Hamburger
Nectar (nearby Queens are attracted to Chuck and one Queen is spawned nearby. This effect lasts for 6 minutes.):
Orange Juice + Orange Juice
Jelly Beans + Beer

Gift Locations

Search the indicated locations in the video below to find ALL 11 gifts for Katey and then take them to her (Katey is always sitting in the office of the safe house). Doing this will earn you Prestige Points which will level you up faster.

Unlock Ghosts 'n Goblins Knight Armour

When you have collected ALL 4 pieces of the knight armor you will get half damage. If you lose more than 50% health the armour will break and you will take normal damage in your underwear. Search the following locations to find the corresponding piece of armour.
At Royal Flush Plaza in the rear of the 'Wave of Style' hairdresser's shop.

Defeating Sgt. Dwight

During Case 6-2 use the following trick to easily kill Sgt. Dwight. To perform it enter Fortune Park and go to the red SUV which costs $2 million to unlock by purchasing the keys. Drive the SUV to the underground area and squeeze it in. At the entrance to the loading bay there are a line of large boxes blocking it off. Drive over these boxes and squeeze the SUV under the security gate. This will trigger the cinematic for the Boss fight against Sgt. Dwight. When the cinematic has completed you will be on foot again and if you look at where you entered you will see the SUV is stuck halfway in the room. Get inside the SUV and squeeze it in the rest of the way through and then use it to kill Sgt. Dwight.


Instead of using your arms or your back to transport survivors to the safehouse use wheelchairs. Just push a wheelchair up to the survivor and wait for them to sit down (they don't have to be injured). When you run the wheelchair to the safehouse you can use it as a weapon knocking down zombies but don't hit too many or crash into too many walls or the wheelchair will break and you will dump the survivor. The wheelchair can also be armed with weapons and used like a tank as shown in the video below.

To get this Trophy you have to tame Snowflake, kill her psychopath owner 'Ted' and give her something to eat. Steaks can be found in the restaurant or in the area Snowflake is waiting. Collect the steaks before entering the Yucatan casino and make sure you have a good weapon as the fight will automatically start as soon as you enter for the first time.

Easy 'Tape It Or Die' Trophy

When you combine Queen and Nectar the Wingman secret combo card is created and you get the 'Tape It Or DIE!' Trophy. To do this find a zombie (usually in a crowd) with his hands in the air and kill him to release the queen in a bottle. To create nectar get a beer and jelly beans from the candy store and combine them. It is possible to create Nectar with other food and drinks but this combination seems to be the easiest and quickest.

Unlock Dealer Outfit

Change into ALL the available pieces of clothing in the safe-house (except the locker items) to unlock the Dealer outfit. You can also find the Dealer costume in the room Lenny is hiding in the Yucatan.

Easy Money

Look for a slot machine in the casinos that has a pile of money (100$) in front of it. On this slot machine you will be able to win up to five times. To win on this machine again after your fifth win go into the map (any casino, or the machines by the Sports Car in the Royal Flush Plaza). You can also get easy money by destroying ATM machines which will drop between $2,000 and $2,500. To do the following trick you need to have at least $25,000 to $50,000. Go to the Slot Ranch casino and find the Heart slot machine on the wall that has two buy in amounts ($100 and $1,000). Select $1,000. Keep playing this machine until you have $6 million (this will not take long to do), then buy as much as desired. The best combinations (hearts fill in for the third slot), 3 hearts are $100,000; 2 hearts..

Easy 'Look At All That Juice!' Trophy

Check out the following video to see how the juices can be made easily.

Easy Money Grinding

Anytime during gameplay after you first make it to the safe house save your game and go to 'Quit Game' and restart the story. If you do not press 'Start' to skip the cut-scene you will be able to do do the opening 'Slicecycles' sequence again and gain $10,000 for coming in 1st place. This process can be repeated as many times as you desire.

Blender Locations

Juggz Bar (Platinum Strip)
Palisades Mall (grotto bar on first floor)
Pub O' Gold (Silver Strip)

Quicker Start in New Game+ Mode

Skip the opening cinematic when you start a New Game+ session and you will advance past the 'Terror Is Reality' section until your arrival at the emergency bunker.

Zombie guts

First you must need an auger W/ combo card and be in an area with upper platforms (south plaza) then hold down the Square button to do the heavy attack and cut off all off the zombies limbs then go under an overhead walkway. Through the zombie off by pressing square again and once it hits the rafter the zombie will explode(ish) and the guts will come out for a short time.

Best combo weapons for physcopaths

Super slicer = amber and crystal = charge
Roaring thunder = crowedes of zombies
Dynameat = crowdes of zombies
