Otis's call Dead rising transiever  You said you're a journalist, right? I've been watching the monitors here and I got some info you might want. There's some young guy wanderin' around in Paradise Plaza. He's carrin' a camera like you. I guess he must be a photographer, too. Takin pictures at a time like this...You're both crazy![1]

Dead Rising Psychopaths

Kent Swanson is a Dead Rising psychopath in three scoops.


  • If Frank hits Kent he will say:
    • "Knock that off, I am a pacifist.",
    • "Don't touch me! I'm a pacifist. You tryin' to kill me or something?",
    • "Dammit! What's wrong with you!? Dick!",
    • "Wrong, Wrong, Wrong! Take a picture, dammit!"
    • Kent will then follow Frank or shoot at Frank until he hits him once.
    • There are two results of Frank giving pictures to Kent: If they're good, Kent will applaud you, if they're bad, he'll just laugh in your face and run off (Which will leave a "Lost" prompt on his notebook entry).When Kent is first encountered he will make a very loud and disturbing laugh before triggering his first cutscene. Before Otis Washington tells you about Kent There is a %25 chance that he will be dead/sleeping and you can shoot him for whatever reason.
