Katey needs Zombrex every 24 hours to avoid succumbing to the infection from her bite, so Chuck needs to get busy and track down multiple doses of the drug. The medicine can be bought from the in-game pawn shops, but for a steep price. Our Dead Rising 2: Free Zombrex guide will outline where Chuck can get his hands on some free, hidden Zombrex. There are nine free zombrex doses in total; five are scattered throughout the city, and four are rewarded for completing side missions.
