|Dead Rising 2 Cases|
Katey has been infected since the outbreak in Las Vegas and she needs a dose of Zombrex every 24 hours to stay alive. Without any in hand, Chuck must venture out into the zombie-infested Fortune City. There is a pharmacy in Roy's Mart, at the east side of Royal Flush Plaza, which may have Zombrex.
The player must travel to Roy's Mart, find Zombrex, and return it to Katey between 7:00 and 8:00am. Identical to all days, this task is split into two parts, Find Katey Zombrex and once the Zombrex is found, Katey will need Zombrex. At Roy's Mart, a cutscene shows three Looters ransacking the place for valuables and terrorizing the pharmacist for a safe. Chuck interrupts them asking for Zombrex. The looters close in on him asking him for money.
The player must kill all three looters in order to find the Pharmacy Key, which unlocks the room behind the counter, where a dose of Zombrex is on the table. From here, the player has the option of whether or not to save Denyce, the pharmacist. Chuck will receive a 5,000 PP Join Bonus and if she makes it back to the Safe Room alive, an additional 10,000 PP Escort Bonus.
A cutscene follows of Sullivan asking Chuck where he found the survivor(s)[note 1] and Chuck tells him that there are more. Sullivan tells Chuck he doesn't want any infected getting into the Safe Room.
After this, depending on how much time the player spent out of the Safe Room, Katey may be due for her next dose of Zombrex. After she is given the injection, Case 1-1: Big News begins.
