    Dead Rising 2: Hidden Combo Cards Guide

    Dead Rising 2 Logo Chuck needs all the help he can get in his efforts to decimate the thralls of undead, and nothing gets the job done better than a duct-taped combination weapon. For some of the more inventive weapons, Chuck needs some inspiration. Throughout Fortune City you'll find advertisements, announcements, and posters galore; what we're interested in are movie posters. These posters depict a character in the film wielding an unorthodox but deadly weapon that Chuck can replicate with the right components.

    There are nine hidden combo cards and seven of them are found via movie posters. The remaining two are located using more unconventional means. Hunting down all nine earns the Curiously Inventive achievement as an added bonus to the cool weapons you'll be able to craft.
