Zombie endurance[]

Using a Rat Stick at level 1, one of the weakest weapons in the game, a player can determine precisely how strong zombies are in comparison to each other. Frank at level 50 kills the zombies much faster. For example, it takes 6 hits to kill a fat man with a rat stick at level 50, and 15 times at level 1. Nighttime is at 7:00 pm every day, when the zombies eyes become red, making them "stronger, faster, and much more violent"[1]

Trivia[]

  • Frank can interact with zombies through the load screen doors, shooting them, throwing items at them, etc.
  • Zombies ignore cult members, possibly because their outfits mask their human smell.

Zombie aggression[]

  • Zombies evening aggression is from 7 pm to around 7 am daily.
    • If Frank stays on one load screen, the zombies never lose their red eyes and evening aggression.

Notes[]

  1. Off, Greg (August 7, 2006). Dead Rising Official Strategy Guide. BradyGames. 
  2. Although it takes 8 hits to kill the thin woman during the day, the actual number is probably 7.5 because zombies are exactly twice as difficult to kill at night. The thin zombie woman is killed after 15 hits at night. One half of 15 is 7.5.
  3. Including zombies with hard hats
  4. Some of these zombies require only half the number of hits (7) at night. It is not understood why.
  5. Based on the 2.5 times difference between level 50 Frank and Level 1 Frank in killing zombies
  6. Based on the 2.5 times difference between level 50 Frank and Level 1 Frank in killing zombies
