As Frank levels up in Dead Rising, he'll learn new skills and moves. Below is a list of all of the 21 moves available to Frank.
Leveling is a system by which the player can increase Frank's talents and attributes. You can level up by obtaining numerous PP points throughout the game, either by killing a certain amount of zombies, taking pictures, especially Photo Ops, or by doing other things in the game. Leveling effects Health, Inventory, Throw, Skills, Speed, and Attack. If you get to level 50 in the game, you will get the Level Max achievement.
As Frank levels up he learns new skills. What Frank earns as he levels up is different for each game file. For example, Player One may have a health block and the Jump Kick by level 5, while Player Two has an inventory slot and the Zombie Ride by level 5. It is different for everyone and there is no set level for each skill.
