- For Dead Rising 3 see Attribute Points.
Prestige Points often abbreviated "PP", are experience points used in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case West and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. Prestige points can be gained by:
- completing missions and cases,
- rescuing survivors,
- killing zombies and psychopaths,
- using Combo Weapons to kill zombies,
- performing certain bonus actions,
- using hand to hand skills to kill zombies.
- playing minigames such as Money to Burn.
- Off the Record and Case West: Taking photographs such as Photo Ops.
Prestige Point Gauge and leveling upEdit
The PP Gauge is just underneath Chuck's Life Bar. It displays the amount of prestige points Chuck currently has. As Chuck gains more prestige points, the gauge fills. When it fills completely, his level increases by one.
Level increase benefitsEdit
A level increase gives Chuck:
- more life,
- better attack strength,
- more inventory space,
- new skills,
- throwing distance increase,
- faster running speed,
- Combo Cards
Leveling up listEdit
In Dead Rising 2: Case Zero Chuck can reach up to level 5, which is carried over into Dead Rising 2. Below is a list of Prestige Points required to attain the next level and the cumulative amount of Prestige Points needed to reach each level.
Chuck's current status Edit
To check on Chuck's current level, skills available, and prestige points, pause the game by pressing and select status from the pause menu.
Quickly gain prestige pointsEdit
The quickest way to increase Chuck's level is with the boomstick's heavy attack, which is stabbing and lifting zombies into the air. It yields 2,500 Prestige points per kill, so perform the heavy attack often to get a lot of Prestige Points in a short time. Chuck can keep remaking the weapon at a maintenance table.
In comparison, having a Case Zero survivor join Chuck is only worth up to 2,000 prestige points and successfully escorting a survivor is worth up to a maximum of 3,500 prestige points.
Prestige points for rescuing survivorsEdit
As Chuck progresses, the prestige point amount for each survivor increases.
