Dead Rising 2 Pre-Order Bonuses Become Dead Rising 2 DLC

By Spencer . October 6, 2010 . 5:59pm

As a pre-order bonus, Capcom offered download codes to unlock stat boosting costumes for Chuck as a Dead Rising 2. Retailers had different outfits so you had to either buy multiple copies of Dead Rising 2 or hunt for codes on eBay. Not for long, though. Over the next few weeks, Capcom will release those outfits as downloadable content over PlayStation Network and Xbox Live.


Capcom is kicking off Dead Rising 2 DLC with this psychopath outfit. Wearing it makes Chuck more difficult to kill and gives him a bonus with gruesome weapons like chainsaws and axes. The psychopath outfit comes out next week on October 12.



The soldier of fortune costume makes Chuck a better shot. He gets an accuracy and headshot boosts plus double ammo when he picks up a gun. Wearing the soldier of fortune costume also gives Chuck a bullet spraying attack when he’s armed with an automatic weapon. The soldier of fortune will be available on October 19.




Equipping the sports fan costume makes basketballs bounce more when thrown, which in turn should hit more zombies. Chuck also becomes a better gambler and recovers more life after eating food while wearing the jersey. The most important ability might be not getting sick from drinking. Pair this with the beer hat and you shouldn’t have a problem with any psychopath. The sports fan costume will be available on October 26.




Wearing the ninja costume cloaks Chuck from zombies. The living dead have to get much closer to him before they munch on his brains. Chuck also gets a new special attack when using sword-type weapons such as the katana and broadsword. The ninja costume also increases his throwing speed for weapons like gems. The ninja costume will be available on November 2.



If your dream is to create a ninja Chuck with a sports jersey, yes It’s possible to mix and match outfits.

    rar, I already found my ultimate costume in the game any ways, soldier helmet, flu mask, skater clothes, and soldier boots. With possible chance of Server Bot head when I’m feeling XD

  • I didnt think the game had enough value to still last people playing it through Nov 2 to be honest.

      Although I don’t think the game was bad (I’ve enjoyed a fill of it) it’s not as good as the original, it’s just hard to beat Frank, what with his hulk like strength and complete disregard for safety. “Zombie filled tunnel of death?” “FAN-TASTIC”

      I think I’ll have 100% probably by next week or so easily, the original at least lasted more then 2 weeks, it’s kind of hard to really put my finger on what is off about this one, I feel like Blue Castle did do a great job but there is a certain flat quality to the game. Although co-op has been a blast with my friend.

        You’re probably just better at it than you were when you played the first game, it didn’t really last any longer.
