Dead Rising 2 Guide to Survivors

You can rescue survivors in Dead Rising 2 for some important Prestige Points. You can also have Combo Cards on rescuing these survivors. They can be found at certain places in Fortune City. You can give them food to restore their health or you can give them guns for the defense purposes.

One thing you should keep in mind is that there will be no more calls till the timer for previous survivors have been expired.

Make sure you only pick those you received radio call for, if you don’t recognize having called to save them, you may want to re-consider saving them as they may be infected. Here is a list of survivors that can be found in Dead Rising 2. You can refer the Dead Rising 2 Map Guide to find the exact location of these survivors.
