    Pretty much follow the same guides for the single player achievements as the MP ones.

    Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (Xbox 360)Challenge DominationThe Challenge Domination achievement in Dead Rising 2: Off The Record (Xbox 360) worth 62 pointsGet a gold medal on all single player challenges.

    The only difference is the amount for gold on any mission that isnt a race. Race times do not change, you only need both players to cross the finish line. Having said that, there is something important to note on races, both players MUST be on the finishing flag, not past it. Particularly on the cycle races and the car race in the tunnels, if the flag is not turning orange you're too far away and have to come back. If your teammate is not near the orange flag, the race will not end.

    Having said that, there are a few changes worth noting between the single player and co op strategies.

    Mission: (The co op version of Thirst Quencher)
    Requirements: Drink 60 booze in 3 minutes
    Don't try to dump all the booze on one player who's holding the drinking magazine, it wont work, you'll literally run out of time due to the player drinking animation and picking up new items.

    You also cannot duplicate the drinking magazine, have one or both of your players wear the sports fan outfit, this will speed your running rate up and make you immune to alcohol induced vomiting.

    Mission: Picture Perfect Partners
    Requirement for Gold: 11000PP from Photos
    There is very few ways of getting PP effectively in this. Because of the double-exposure issue with photos, two players cannot run the same single player tactic of using the brutality shot from the alien UFO crash ride.

    The best way to get the PP easily is to ensure you have the Erotica Magazine from the Slot Ranch Casino's mens room (Doubles PP from Erotic photos) and the two photography magazines. Give these to one of the two players and have him photograph the anal probes on the path to the alien crash ride. The first photo should net around 6000PP for a close up shot of all of them, second one will net 3000, then 1500, etc. etc...

    In 60 seconds, this will be hard to ensure that you get all the XP since hte photo cooldown takes time, but two photos plus ones like the BFF shot, or the space probe brutality should push you over the 11,000 mark.

    Mission: (Whatever it's called), the Co op version of Extreme Off Road
    Requirements: 800 Kills
    Even with the slice cycle and the SUV, you will find yourself running out of zombies very very fast. The best method to get your 800 kills is to have both players use a pair of Super BFGs each, these will easily street sweep the area and ensure that you dont miss any zombies.

    Using the vehicles, even the slice cycles and SUV will end up thinning out the zombie numbers too much to be effective and you'll be lucky to hit 800 before the end of the time limit.

    Mission: Lightning Strikes Twice
    Requirements: 300 Kills
    Don't even bother with the electric crushers, you'll never be able to get enough kills in time. Have you and your partner buy a pair of tesla balls from the pawn shop, stack them in the maintainance room behind the challenge star, then buy two more. The 4 tesla balls will easily net you close to 400 electric kills before the time limit runs out.

    Mission: (The co op version of Mad Hats)
    Requirements: 30 hats on Zombies at once
    Be quick with this one, and dont stop planting hats on zombies even after you hit your 30, the hats WILL FALL OFF and you need to keep up the hat stacking right up until the last minute. The rate that hats fall off is random, so you'd need to keep going to ward off the slipping under gold that can occur if you dont focus.

    Mission: Twin Terrors
    Requirement: Kill one twin in 50 seconds
    Rather then using the laser sword, have both players use the drillers instead, quickstep and driller, pick a twin and focus on her, your and your buddy will be able to keep them from escaping because of hte rapid attacks and when you both gang up on the one twin, you do as much damage as the laser sword but at a much faster rate. On average you should kill one twin in under 30 seconds.

    This is my method for getting Gold on the PP photo Challenge: "Shutter Bug" (single player) and "Picture Perfect" (co-op). Before heading to Uranus Zone to do the challenge collect all three photo PP magazines. These add to your PP% for every picture you take.

    1) Erotica mag, (as mentioned by count023) Slot Ranch Casino in Mens Bathroom. adds 100% to erotic photos.

    2) Photography 2 mag, located in Palisades mall on second floor in Robsaka Mobile store. adds 10% to all photos.

    3) Photography 1 mag, located in Uranus Zone in First Aid room by farthest right maintenance room. adds 10% to all photos.

    Note: All three magazines should be held by one player. Might also be able to do this challenge with only Erotica mag.

    Other useful items for this challenge: Quick Step, Repulse, and/or Untouchable juice, and the Ninja outfit. These will help in avoiding zombies which can knocking you out of camera mode, however they are not necessary.

    Before starting the challenge locate the Souvenirs booth next to the Molemen from Uranus mini game. This is found straight across the walkway from the bar Jump Space 7. Once inside the Souvenir booth grab and place many (roughly 30) Alien Probes on the floor. This spot will spawn these infinitely.

    After the floor is covered, start the challenge run back to this booth and stand on the counter to photograph the floor.
    This method literally only required one photo from my co-op partner and one from myself having all three books in my inventory. Gold medal in one picture on single player too. My highest score using this was 57366 PP in single player.
