Case 0-1: Find Katey ZombrexEdit
Travel to the road block next to the Quarantine Zone
Brockett Gas Station safe houseEdit
After the Introduction, and two screens explaining Zombrex, Chuck will begin the game in the Brockett Gas Station. The Brockett Gas Station is a safe house where the game can be saved, where Chuck can escort survivors too, and create combo weapons with the maintenance bench. Katey will wait here the entire game. There are several weapons in this room.
Chuck's first Combo WeaponEdit
Chuck has the opportunity to make a Combo Weapon immediately. As the game starts, in front of Chuck is a door. To the left of the door is a Box of Nails and a Baseball Bat.
Pick up both the Box of Nails and the Baseball Bat.
Walk to the brown maintenance bench. A yellow action icon with a hand will appear prompting Chuck to "Place Item". Press the button to place the first item on the bench. An explanation screen will appear, explaining how maintenance benches work. A blue wrench action icon will then appear, prompting Chuck to combine. Press again.
Another cutscene will begin, showing that Chuck has made his very first combo weapon, a Spiked Bat, and explaining what a combo weapon is.
Adjacent rooms in the Safe HouseEdit
In the adjacent room is the main entry where Chuck pushed the vending machine across to stop the zombies. This room has Orange Juice (to the left on the garage door) and Snacks. Pick up at least one orange juice.
Roof of the Safe HouseEdit
On the roof is a sniper rifle near the front of the store. The roof is reached by a ladder behind the main entrance room counter.
Car Scrap YardEdit
After creating the Spiked Bat and picking up at least one orange juice, exit the garage. The exit Chuck will use is in the garage Katey is in, next to the maintenance bench. The door exits into a car scrap yard, turn left and walk around the derelict cars.
Save Game shackEdit
There is a small blue shack at the edge of the Auto Scrap Yard. Enter this shack. A Explanation screen appears explaining saving.
In this shack are two doors, one to the left and one directly in front of Chuck. Open the door directly in front of Chuck with the bathroom sign above the door. Here is a bathroom which is a save point. This is one of three save points in Still Creek. Save the game.
The other door is to Still Creek. Open the door.
Approaching Quarantine ZoneEdit
As Chuck approaches the edge of town, there is a red quarantine sign and stop sign. A cutscene begins, starting Case 0-2: Find Zombrex.
Case 0-2: Find ZombrexEdit
As this case begins an information screen appears which states:
At this point the case file appears and an opportunity to save the game. Save the game.
Traveling through the quarantine zoneEdit
To avoid zombies, Chuck can jump from car to car in the traffic jam.
Open the ambulance door and a cutscene begins.
Case 0-3: Broken BikeEdit
After the information screen, the case begins with Chuck behind a utility cart. Push to begin pushing the cart. Follow the guide arrow, backtracking back to the gas station.
As Chuck pushes the cart near the door to the safe house shed, the brief full black load screen starts, and a cutscene begins.
Case 0-4: Find Bike PartsEdit
As soon as the cutscene with Katey ends, the Case File screen appears, showing that Case 0-4 is Engaged. It further explains that:
A Second information screen appears, called Bike Parts. It explains that:
Preparing to return to Still CreekEdit
After the Bike Parts screen, Chuck starts in the garage. You can now look at the Bike Screen on the pause menu to see the parts needed to finish the bike.
Location of five bike part itemsEdit
The gas canister and handle bars can be put in inventory. The wheel, bike forks, and engine must be held with two hands, and will be dropped if Chuck changes to another item in his inventory.
Bike parts as weaponsEdit
Wheel: Save Dick JonesEdit
After the cutscene, a survivor, Dick Jones, is trapped on top of a van, surrounded by zombies.
Kill most of the zombies around the van. One well placed queen can kill all of the zombies around the van.
After most of the zombies are killed, jump on top the van and speak to Dick.
Follow Dick Jones to the pawnshop and speak to himEdit
Follow Dick up the street to his pawnshop.
In Still Creek PawnshopEdit
There are 8 items for sale in the Still Creek Pawnshop. Chuck should buy the wheel now.
If you want to complete the game and rescue all survivors, Save money and only buy the wheel then the Zombrex.
Purchase the wheel and return to the safe houseEdit
After purchasing the wheel return to the safe house. On the way Chuck can pickup the gas canister which is just outside of Brockett Gas Station.
The Gasoline Canister is the easiest bike part to acquire. Chuck can acquire it as he is carrying the wheel back to the Brockett Gas Station safe house. It is in front of the Brockett Gas Station safe house, near a gas pump.
The engine is found in an alleyway adjacent to the Still Creek Movie Theater. Although the engine is found in an alley open to the street, the easiest way to explain how to reach this engine is through the theater.
Travel through the concession stand.
Travel through the movie theater itself.
On the right side is a door. When Chuck opens the door he unlocks it, satisfying one portion of the Lockmith achievement.
Turn to the right.
Half way down the alley way is the engine. Pick it up and return to the Brockett Gas Station safe house. Remember that all items except for the gas canister must be carried with two hands, and Chuck drops the item if he attempts to switch to another item in his inventory.
But first, the key must be taken from the second floor of Still Creek Hotel.
Travel to the Still Creek HotelEdit
The shed key is found in the Still Creek Hotel.
After returning the engine travel past the gas station safe house.
At the building with Bob Blackrock sniping, turn left, there is a alley way behind this building.
Travel past the green dumpster on the right.
Travel to a fire escape, and jump up on it.
Climb the stairs into Still Creek Hotel.
Inside the Still Creek HotelEdit
Inside the hotel, turn left.
Walk past the two rooms
Walk past the boarded up stairway going downstairs.
At the end of the hallway is a room on the right.
Walk into this room. In the corner is the shed key.
Travel to the shedEdit
Travel back through the hotel and exit the hotel.
Open the door to the shed.
Pick up the bike forks.
Return the bike forks to Brockett Gas StationEdit
Return the bike forks to the Brockett Gas Station safe house. Now for Chuck's final bike part.
The handle bars are the most difficult item to acquire, as the broadsword must be acquired before the handle bars can be secured and the broadsword is in a very remote location. The broadsword is above the entrance to Momma's Diner and in Bob's Fish 'n Hunt which can only be accessed the first time through the roof.
Acquiring the broadswordEdit
After returning the bike forks exit the Brockett Gas Station safe house.
Travel to the second floor of the hotel and jump out of one of the windows in the hall leading to room with the shack key.
Run across Momma's Diner Roof.
On the overhang is the broadsword. Jump down to the overhang.
Chuck only needs one broadsword for the handle bar. The other two broadswords are located in Bob's Fish 'n Hunt, which is first only accessible from the roof, as the door is locked. An explanation of how to reach this store is found on the Bob's Fish 'n Hunt page.
Although not recommended, Chuck can also kill Jason for the handle bars. This is a fast way to get the handlebars but Chuck will not get the prestige points for escorting Jason back to the Brockett Gas Station.
Trading the broadsword for the handle barsEdit
Chuck's destination is the parking lot behind Uncle Bill's Department Store.
Jason Wong is using the handle bars as a weapon. Speak with Jason Wong, he will ask for a broadsword before he gives Chuck the handle bars.
Chuck now has the handlebars.
Escorting Jason and ArchieEdit
Jason will join Chuck.
Followed immediately by Archie.
Giving Chuck a bonus of 1,500 prestige points each.
Complete the escort and deliver the handle barsEdit
The load screen will start, followed by a cutscene.
Jason will exclaim: "I can't believe it! Chuck Greene is here in Still Creek. Thanks, dude!"
Bike completed cutsceneEdit
Chuck must bring Zombrex to Katey. If Chuck gave the Zombrex found in the ambulance in Case 0-2: Find Zombrex to Sharon he must purchase more Zombrex from Dick Jones at the Still Creek Pawnshop for $25,000.
Purchase Zombrex from Still Creek PawnshopEdit
Travel to the Still Creek Pawnshop.
Buy the Zombrex.
After buying the Zombrex, it will drop in front of Dick.
Pick up the Zombrex
After collecting the zombrex Chuck needs to stock up on firepower for The Mechanic case. Visit Bob's Fish 'n Hunt and pick up an assault rifle, broadsword and shotgun. Return to the Brockett Gas Station safe house.
Heal yourself if necessary with orange juice from the next room and pick an extra carton. As Chuck approaches Katey the yellow action icon will appear with the text "Give Zombrex". Press . A cutscene begins.
For the cutscene in which Chuck gives Katey Zombrex, see Zombrex 1.
To beat the mechanic:
Chuck should keep his distance and use the sniper rifle first then the assault rifle. Restock on orange juice if needed.
