MOVES & BOOKS LISTS


Frank's Move List

Punch
(Default move)
TAP X to have Frank unleash normal punches on the enemy.

Punt Kick
(Default move)
PRESS AND HOLD X to have Frank kick the enemy. This works well when they are on the ground.

Jump Kick View Screenshot
TAP A to jump then PRESS X to have Frank jump in the air and kick.

Zombie Ride
Jump toward a horde of zombies then tap FORWARD + A to have Frank walk over the top of their heads. This can only be done on zombies that are very close together. He can also jump from the top of their heads while walking on them. In order to do this move properly, you must be close enough for the zombie to grab you, literally touching the zombie, and then press hold forward and jump
then Frank should step up to the zombie's shoulder. If you jump too soon, Frank will merely jump straight toward the zombie and will likely get hit.

Kick Back
When grabbed by a zombie, PRESS THE LEFT ANALOG STICK IN THE DIRECTION THAT FRANK IS FACING and TAP X to make Frank deliver a swift kick that will knock down the zombie.

Flying Dodge
DOUBLE TAP THE LEFT ANALOG in any direction to have Frank lunge then roll. This can knock stagger an enemy if it hits one.

Power Push
Press to the LEFT and RIGHT to have Frank push an attacking zombie away and knock him down.

Football Tackle View Screenshot
CLICK IN ON THE LEFT ANALOG then PRESS A to have Frank perform a sliding tackle toward an enemy.

Judo Throw
PRESS THE LEFT ANALOG AWAY FROM A ZOMBIE during a zombie grab to have Frank grab the zombie and flip him over Frank's shoulder.

Double Lariat
CLICK IN ON THE LEFT ANALOG then TAP X to have Frank perform a lariat that will knock all enemies in close distance away from him. This is extremely helpful when surrounded by zombies. Keep in mind that Frank will hit the enemies with his currently equipped weapon while spinning, but will throw the weapon at the end of the lariat. It is best to unequip the current weapon if you have a valuable weapon. The weapon will give him a greater range and more power though when equipped during a double lariat.

Roundhouse Kick
PRESS X after hitting the ground from a jump or a fall to have Frank perform a roundhouse kick. This can be done directly after a Flying Dodge also.

Lift Up View Screenshot
While facing an enemy's front side, TAP X + A to have Frank grab an enemy and hold him overhead. TAP X or A to throw the enemy.

Knee Drop
TAP A to jump then tap BACK + X to have Frank come down upon his foe with a quick and powerful knee drop.

Suplex
While facing an enemy's back side, TAP X + A to have Frank grab an enemy and perform a suplex.

Wall Kick
TAP A WHILE JUMPING TOWARD A WALL then TAP AWAY FROM THE WALL + X to have Frank kick off the wall and deliver a powerful flying kick to any enemy in his path.

Hammer Throw
While facing the side of an enemy, TAP X + A to have Frank grab the enemy's shoulder. While holding on to the enemy, you can direct where Frank will throw the enemy by moving the left analog. Frank will push the enemy away from him and make him run into a nearby wall or group of enemies.

Neck Twist
While over the head of a downed enemy, TAP X + A to have Frank grab the enemy's head and tear his head off.

Giant Swing View Screenshot
While over the legs of a downed enemy, TAP X + A to have Frank grab the enemy's legs and spin them around. Frank can knock down multiple enemies while spinning an enemy, but keep in mind that he will be dizzy for a short time afterwards if you wait too long. Tap the X or A button to throw them.

Face Crusher View Screenshot
While facing the back of an enemy, TAP TOWARD THE ENEMY and X + A to have Frank grab the back of the enemy's head and drive their head directly into the ground as he falls with them. This is a one hit kill on any normal enemy.

Disembowel
While facing the front of an enemy, TAP TOWARD THE ENEMY and X + A to have Frank plow his hand into the enemy's stomach and tear out their intestines. This is always a one hit kill on any normal enemy.

Somersault Kick
While standing still, PRESS A then QUICKLY PRESS X to have Frank perform a powerful Somersault Kick. This will instantly decapitate any zombie in front of him.

Karate Chop
While attacking an enemy with X Frank will automatically turn to the side and hit an enemy that is trying to attack him with a Karate Chop. Note that Frank will only turn to the side and not directly behind. This move can chop off arms and heads.

Zombie Walk
HOLD X for a while until Frank stands motionless to have Frank blend in with the zombie horde by walking and acting like zombie. The zombies will not attack Frank while he walks like this. While escorting survivors, zombies will still be able to hit you during the zombie walk if they lunge.

Sweep
Hold back on the left analog as you do a roundhouse kick after falling from a jump or after a flying dodge and Frank will do a sweeping kick.
