SCOOPS - SEPTEMBER 21


"A Strange Group"

Store: Colby's Movieland
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Sean, Ray, Nathan, Michelle, Beth, Cheryl
Start Time: 12:00 AM, September 21
End Time: 10:00 AM, September 21

Requirements:
1) Defeat Sean.
2) Untie Ray, Nathan, Michelle, and Beth, then use the Movieland Warehouse Key to unlock the door near the screen to resue Cheryl.
3) Escort all of them back to the Security Room.

Once inside Colby's Movieland, you will notice that the once zombie-filled area is now quiet except for the chanting in the background. Turn the first corner up ahead to run into several cult members. Fight through the cult members or dash through them and enter Screen 4.

Psychopath - Sean

Photo Op: In order to get Sean's Photo Op, you will have to leave the Screen 4 room and Colby's Movieland while fighting him (Enter Paradise Plaza). Go back into Movieland and head back to Screen 4. Open the door to see him praying below the statue near the screen with a PP icon over his head. Rush down the stairs, equip the camera, zoom in, and take the shot.



 

Now for the showdown with the Raincoat Cult leader! Like the Jo fight, you will fight the Cult leader while survivors look on helplessly. Sean is extremely quick and will stay right on top of you most of the battle. His moves include a standing sword slash (sometimes two), a sliding kick, a sliding sword thrust, and a jumping overhead slash. While fighting him, move to the sides as he performs a sliding kick, a sliding sword thrust, or a jumping overhead slash then quickly hit him with a melee weapon. He will usually stagger if you hit him right after each of these moves. Do not hit him out of a standing sword slash or he will not stagger and will most likely hit you. If he knocks you down during this battle there is a chance that he may run over to you and hit you as you get up. Most of his hits will knock you down, so he can get free hits throughout the battle if he so desires. Make sure to bring the best melee weapon possible for this battle. A boss weapon such as the Small Chainsaw or Machete will finish him quickly. [PHOTO OP] Kill any of the tied up survivors or have Sean kill them then take a pic of them as they die for some bonus PP. If you ever need to heal during this fight then leave Screen 4 and stand outside. He will not follow you through the doors. You can go to the other Screen Rooms and pick up some of the healing items within. You can find some Mannequins in one of the screen rooms and grab their Torsos for a great weapon against Sean! Sean will not bother the survivors while you are gone - he will simply stand to one side of the room and chant.

TIP: He will sometimes fall to his knees if you constantly attack him, so be sure to take advantage of this and get your free hit.

 

He will leave you with the COLBY'S MOVIELAND WAREHOUSE KEY. The Cult Leader has also left you with a Ceremonial Sword and a book on Brainwashing Tips. Raincoat Cult members will storm into the screen room after he is defeated. It is best to kill the cult members before doing anything else, since the back door is the only exit. Untie the ropes from the back of the chair for [Ray], [Beth], [Michelle], and [Nathan] to free them. Unlock the door near the screen using the Colby's Movieland Warehouse Key to find another survivor by the name of [Cheryl].

"Floyd the Sommelier"

Store: Security Room
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Floyd
Start Time: 2:00 AM, September 21, if you rescued Floyd in Ned's Knicknackery

Requirements:
1) Rush back to the Security Room and Bring Floyd some wine.

Floyd will want you to bring him back some wine, so make a stop by Chris' Fine Foods in the Food Court and grab some wine then get back to the Security Room and give it to Floyd.

"Long Haired Punk"

Store: Casual Gals
Section of Mall: Wonderland Plaza
Survivor: Paul, Mindy, Debbie
Start Time: 5:00 AM, September 21
End Time: 5:00 PM, September 21

Requirements:
1) Defeat Paul.
2) Use an extinguisher to stop Paul from burning after the cutscene.
3) Talk to Paul to get him to join you then unlock the door and get Debbie and Mindy to join as well.
4) Escort them back to the Security Room.

Psychopath Boss - Paul

[BOSS PHOTO OP] His Photo Op will happen right after an explosive hits you - take a pic as he laughs.

Paul will start the battle by running out the entrance of Casual Gals and will leave explosives behind. Hit him with a melee weapon as many times as you can when he tries to dart out of the store since this will be your best chance. If you have a powerful weapon such as the Small Chainsaw or Machete, then the battle may end before he even gets out the door. He will run around Wonderland Plaza and will throw white explosives behind him. If you get hit by one that he leaves while running, then you will run the risk of getting hit by another since they will be close together and will go off in a row. He will always stop eventually and may throw a single explosive toward you. If you try to use a melee weapon then this will be a hard fight while out in Wonderland Plaza, but if you have a long distance weapon then this battle is simple. Bring a gun or any type of long distance weapon and you will have no problems. Shoot him from a distance when he runs.

The only attack that you will have to really watch out for is the single explosive throw that he will do from a distance. He will throw either the usual white explosive or a Molotov Cocktail that will explode instantly. Be on the lookout while chasing him up any staircase since the white explosives will roll down the stairs. While keeping your distance, do not let him go off the screen or he will send remote control cars toward you with explosives attached. The only way to get rid of them is to shoot them, let them hit you, or let him blow them up with his explosives. Sometimes they will tump over by hitting a wall as well. He will send out up to four at a time and they will follow you until they explode. If any object stands in Paul's way then he might accidentally get caught in the blast of his own explosives. By shooting him, you may knock an explosive out of his hand and make him get caught in the blast. The zombies are slightly annoying during this battle, but Paul will take care of some of them for you.

TIP: Let me stress again, you can MURDER him with a melee weapon before he gets out the door of Casual Gals, so be sure to take advantage of this. Having the Small Chainsaw is almost a guaranteed victory right from the get go of this fight.

After the battle, Paul will be burning from one of cocktails. First of all, [PHOTO OP] take a pic of him while he burns for some PP bonus points, then grab the fire extinguisher next to the wall behind him. Run back around to his front side where his legs are burning then use the extinguisher to put them out. Stand a little ways away from his legs. It will take quite a bit of time, but he will eventually stop burning, so keep spraying him until he does. Talk to him a few times afterwards and [Paul] will join you. Open the door to the side of the store to find two survivors: [Mindy] and [Debbie]. Talk to them to get them to join you.

"A Sick Man"

Store: Estelle's Fine-lady Cosmetics
Section of Mall: Wonderland Plaza
Survivor: Leroy
Start Time: 8:00 AM, September 21
End Time: 4:00 PM, September 21

Requirements:
1) Meet up with Leroy then escort him back to the Security Room.

Run inside of the cosmetics store on the south end of Wonderland Plaza and talk to [Leroy] a few times until he joins you. Give him a weapon and get back to the Security Room. You might find [Susan] in the south playground area of Wonderland Plaza around this time as well.

"Photographer's Pride"

Store: Columbian Roastmasters
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Kent
Start Time: 12:00 PM, September 21, if you did "Photo Challenge"
End Time: 1:00 PM, September 21

Requirements:
1) Defeat Kent and save Tad (you must be in Paradise Plaza before 12:00 PM).
2) Escort Tad back to the Security Room.

A cutscene will start in Paradise Plaza at exactly 12:00 PM no matter where you are in that plaza. This boss fight differs depending on if you are there at 12:00 PM or if you make it after 12:00. Read on.

1) If you arrive before 12:00 PM then a cutscene will begin right at 12:00 PM in Paradise Plaza and you will fight Kent with all of your gear intact and have the ability to save [Tad].

Psychopath Boss - Kent

[PHOTO OP] When he does his flying kick. You've most likely already gotten this in "Cut From the Same Cloth", but if not then it will be available this time as well.



 

I had a feeling that something was not quite right with this guy. Kent is a very weak boss, but he still has some attacks that will catch you off guard at times. He will mainly use all of the moves that he used during the first scoop. He has a flying kick, a punch, a kick, a ram and he will always fire his handgun at you from a distance. He can combo his moves and hit you on the ground if he knocks you down or staggers you. His flying kick literally comes out of nowhere so stay moving. Stay close to him or he will constantly fire at you with his handgun - he's not too bad of a shot either. His flying kick and ram are the main moves that will likely catch you off guard because of how fast they are. The flying kick is also his major weakness. He will be stunned shortly after trying to hit you with the flying kick and that is when you should attack him with your best melee weapon. You'll take quite a bit damage no matter what weapon you have. Grab a Baseball Bat from Sportrance if you need a good weapon. Use the Orange Juice from Columbian oastmasters for a quick health replenish. If you have a small chainsaw, then you can clock this as one of your quickest boss battles.

He will leave you with the Camera 2 Book after you defeat him. Untie [Tad] and escort him back to the Security Room. If you beat Kent quick enough, you won't have to worry about any zombies while escorting Tad.

2) If you arrive after 12:00 PM then a cutscene will start immediately upon entering Paradise Plaza in which Kent will strip Frank of all of his gear and clothes then put a collar around his neck with a chain attached from high above. Frank will basically be turned into Kent's photo slave.

The battle is much harder if you arrive too late. Frank will be stripped of all his weapons and items and will be tied to a chain with a collar around his neck. You will only have access to the items around the fountain area outside of Jill's Sandwiches. Frank cannot move any further because of the chain. There are two snacks hidden among the flowers if you need some health. Kent has all the same moves described above, but this time you will have to deal with zombies. Kent will take pictures of Frank if a zombie attacks you. Use Frank's double lariat and the potted plants along the sides of the fountain to defeat Kent. Wait until after his jumping kick then hit him with a potted plant. There are some snacks hidden in the shrubbery if you need them.

"Kindell's Betrayal"

Store: Security Room
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Kindell
Start Time: 12:00 PM, September 21, if you rescued Kindell
End Time: 5:00 PM, September 21

Requirements:
1) Go back to the Security Room and convince Kindell not to leave.

Keep talking to Kindell until the mutiny has been averted. He is in the room behind the green door. If you fail this mission, then he will convince his entire room of survivors to join him and you will lose all of the survivors in that room.

"A Woman in Despair"

Store: Players
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Simone
Start Time: 12:00 PM, September 21
End Time: 5:00 PM, September 21

Requirements:
1) Finish Case 6-1.
2) Keep talking to Simone until she joins you then escort her back to the Security Room.

[Simone] is hidden behind the aisle against the window of Players. Approach her and talk to her. She has been bitten by the zombies, so she needs quite a bit of convincing. If you have finished Case 6-1 then Frank will tell her that he knows of someone that might be able to treat her. If you have not finished Case 6-1 then Frank will tell her that nothing will happen to her, but will admit that he is unsure. She will not join if Frank is unsure, so you will just have to leave her if Case 6-1 is unsolved. Even if you try to carry her to the door she will not go through it with you if you have not finished that
case.

"Paul's Present"

Store: Security Room
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Paul
Start Time: 5:00 PM, September 21, if you rescued Paul during the "Long Haired Punk" scoop
End Time: None

Requirements:
1) Return to the Security Room and talk to Paul.

Open the yellow door and talk to Paul. He will want you to keep his whole psychopathic frenzy a secret in exchange for a new weapon. Frank will agree and he will give you a Molotov Cocktail when you talk to him again. He will keep giving you another cocktail every time you speak to him.

"Simone the Gunslinger"

Store: Security Room
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Simone
Start Time: 7:00 PM, September 21, if you rescued Simone in the "A Woman in Despair" scoop

1) Grab a handgun, go back to the Security Room, and give it to Simone.

Simone requests that you bring her a handgun. You'll most likely receive this scoop on your way back from Case 8-2, so just pick up a handgun from a security guard zombie along the way back. This is the survivor that was bitten. When you give her the gun she will not blow her brains out like you'd think that she would. She will hold onto the gun just in case, however, and the scoop will be done.

"Cheryl's Request"

Store: Security Room
Section of Mall: Paradise Plaza
Survivor: Cheryl
Start Time: 8:00 PM, September 21, if you rescued Cheryl in the "A Strange Group" scoop

Requirements:
1) Return to the room and talk to Cheryl then take pictures of her as she poses.

She wants you to take pictures of her. Take about three snaps of her to satisfy her and your Erotica picture needs. You'll get some high scoring Erotica shots if you keep snapping pictures while she poses. After a while she will thank you and the scoop will be a success. You must perform this mission before the final case is finished!
