Dead Rising Scoops

Photographer's Pride is a Dead Rising scoop. This scoop will have been added to your scoop cue automatically if Frank completed the scoop Photo Challenge earlier.


Kent Swanson is determined to prove once and for all that his photojournalist skills and commitment are greater than Frank's, by infecting Tad Hawthorne with a zombie queen to record the transformation process.

Travel to the Colombian Roastmasters in Paradise Plaza before 12:05, or else Tad will be killed.

If Frank gets there late not only will Tad be dead, but Kent will tie Frank up, put a collar around his neck with a chain attached from high above. Kent will remove Franks weapons and clothing, which Frank loses permanently. Frank will then be Kent's photo slave and have to fight Kent barehanded.

Because Frank cannot move any further away because of the chain around his neck, he will only have access to the items around the fountain area outside of Jill's Sandwiches. Use Frank's double lariat and the potted plants along the sides of the fountain to defeat Kent. Wait until after Kent's jumping kick then hit him with a potted plant.

Frank must also contend with zombies when fighting Kent. If Frank is attacked, Kent will take pictures of the zombies attacking Frank.

Kent aims a gun at a tied up man, holding zombie larvae.

Kent: Ah, Frankie! Good timing! I was just about to shoot my piece de resistance! I'm gonna capture - on film - the exact moment that a human being crosses into zombiehood.

Kent throws the parasite larvae, and Frank stomps on it.

Kent: What are you doin'? My shot... Y-You ruined my perfect shot!

Kent raises his gun with a look of disappointment on his face.[2]

Kent: Listen, Mr. West... I-I owe you an apology. It looks like you're a pro after all, ya know... If I had known that, I would have taken a picture like this from the start.

Kent gives Frank his camera. Frank sees a picture of man getting infected by a zombie parasite.

Kent: Ha! How ya like them apples huh? You see... I think outside the box. And the best part is... (pulls out gun) I'm just getting started. Hahaha!

Kent puts the gun up to Frank's head.

Kent: I'm going to tie you up nice and tight. Get the zombies all riled up...

Frank stands nearly naked with a metal collar around his neck in front of Jill's Sandwiches. Frank's collar is tied to a chain up on the ceiling. Kent stands beside Frank and takes pictures.

Kent: Heh! Famous photographer Frank West... Killed in the line of duty like a true hero! This'll be the greatest picture of my career. Maybe in the history

of photography! This is going to take me straight to the top! Yeah![2]

Tad: What's up with that freak!? What a nutjob!

Frank: There'll be plenty of time to get pissed off later. We don't have time to stick around here [and] chatter. There's a safe place not far from here. Think you can follow me?

Tad: Yeah, I hate this place now anyway. I'll go with you.[2]
