For Dead Rising prestige points, see Dead Rising Prestige Points.

Prestige Points often abbreviated "PP", are experience points used in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Dead Rising 2. Prestige points can be gained by:

  1. completing missions and cases,
  2. rescuing survivors,
  3. killing zombies and enemies,
  4. using Combo Weapons to kill zombies,
  5. performing certain bonus actions,
  6. using skills to kill zombies.

Prestige Point Gauge and leveling up[edit | edit source]

The PP Gauge is just underneath Chuck's Life Bar. It displays the amount of prestige points Chuck currently has. As Chuck gains more prestige points, the gauge fills. When it fills completely, his level increases by one.

Level increase benefits[edit | edit source]

A level increase gives Chuck:

  1. more life,
  2. better attack strength,
  3. more inventory space,
  4. new skills,
  5. throwing distance increase,
  6. faster running speed,
  7. combo cards

Leveling up list[edit | edit source]

In Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Chuck can reach up to level 5, which is carried over into Dead Rising 2. Below is a list of Prestige Points required to attain the next level and the cumulative amount of Prestige Points needed to reach each level.

Level PP
required
to level up
Cumulative
PP
1 0 0
2 20,000[1]
3 40,000
4 60,000
5 80,000
6 110,000[2]

Chuck's current status[edit | edit source]

To check on Chuck's current level, skills available, and prestige points, pause the game by pressing Start.png and select status from the pause menu.

Case Zero[edit | edit source]

Boomstick combo card

In Case Zero, once the Mechanic Jed Wright has been defeated Chuck receives the boomstick combo card and the corresponding heavy attack.

The quickest way to increase Chuck's level is with the boomstick's heavy attack, which is stabbing and lifting zombies into the air. It yields 2,500 Prestige points per kill, so perform the heavy attack often to get a lot of Prestige Points in a short time. Chuck can keep remaking the weapon at a maintenance table.[3]

In comparison, having a Case Zero survivor join Chuck is only worth up to 2,000 prestige points and successfully escorting a survivor is worth up to a maximum of 3,500 prestige points.

Prestige points for rescuing survivors[edit | edit source]

As Chuck progresses, the prestige point amount for each survivor increases.

  • Prestige Points are rewarded to chuck for giving Katey gifts. The only exception to this is Snowflake, who will reward you 5,000 PP for "giving" her to Katie (along with a special message), but also gives you "rescue" PP for just bringing Snowflake to the safe house.
  • It is possible to go from level 1 to level 6 JUST from gifting items to Katey (no Zombie killing required)[11].

Notes[edit | edit source]

  1. Alucadrian, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero: Levelling Guide, GameFAQs, (September 6, 2010).
  2. even after reaching level 5, the prestige points bar will continue to fill again as normal until Chuck reaches 110,000 PP, though nothing in particular happens at that point as Chuck can only reach level 6 and beyond in the full version of Dead Rising 2.
