Dead Rising Survivors

James Ramsey is a unsavable survivor in Dead Rising. James was found in the Huntin' Shack gun shop, trying to negotiate with store owner Cletus Samson. James is attempting to convince Cletus to share his gun supply so the survivors can fight the zombies. Cletus refused and warned James several times to not proceed any closer to him. Unfortunately, James did not heed Cletus' warnings and received buckshot to the chest, flying out of the store, dead. After Cletus is defeated by Frank West, James appears as a zombie and kills Cletus.

See The Gun Shop for more information.


  • James does not appear in Infinity Mode.
  • James must have been bitten by a zombie since he appears as one after he is killed during the aftermath cutscene of The Gun Shop.
  • The voice actor for James Ramsey, Dave Wittenberg, also does the voice acting for Sam Franklin, Ed DeLuca.[3] Mr. Wittenberg also does the voice acting for the mall announcement.
