Dead Rising 4 is now out, and while the fourth game in the series makes a lot of controversial changes from what veterans may expect, it’s still worth a run if you’re a fan of Capcom’s other brand of zombie action. There’s a whole lot going on in Dead Rising 4, especially since the game throws in reams of content for the player to figure out.

If you are one of those players, who just wants help trying to see everything that the game has for you to see, you have come to the right place. From blueprint locations to combo vehicles, from collectibles to upgrades, from leveling up faster to Achievements, this guide covers everything. You ready? Then let’s just right into it.

BLUEPRINT LOCATIONS

In Dead Rising 4, Blueprints are a special kind of collectible that Frank West can hunt down and use to be able to craft new weapons and vehicles. Crafting a weapon or a vehicle from a Blueprint leads to a stronger one, which is more powerful and has a wider range of effects that activate on the battlefield, too.

The videos below will help you track down all the blueprints in the game, across all areas, in the game.

COMBO WEAPONS

Combo weapons are exactly what the name suggests- custom made weapons created by fusing two or more items, often to devastating effect. These can also be created using the Blueprints we discussed above. But what are these weapons, and what do they do? The video below will walk you through just that:

COMBO VEHICLES

Much like combo weapons, combo vehicles are created when two vehicles come together. These, too, can either be found in the field, or created using blueprints. As for what they do? That’s what the video below will show you:
