    Save the game often and use all your save slots.

    Keep saving over your oldest one if you are satisfied with the way things are going in your game. If your not go back to one of the others and try again.

    You can also load last checkpoint. theres usually one everytime you go into a new area.

    Use Y it calls your survivors to follow you. When you use Left Trigger then Y you can tell your survivors where to go and they will stay there as long as you don't press Y again.

    Grab the leadership book in Rags Mags it helps alot.

    Give her a good weapon

    I found it better to stay ahead of her and let her catch up because when she is moving the zombies don't mess with her as much. Just watch the little picture of her that shows up if she gets into trouble.

    Heal her often(after safe room visits, attacked by too many zombies, or psychos, or you by accident)

    Be carefull when she is surrounded if you do to much damage to her she will defect and you will have failed.

    Leave her behind every time you go to the safe room.

    Try to be quick in the safe room so you dont do to much damage to Denyce.

    During the case where T.K.s robbing casinos put her in the bathroom or maintenence room and save it if you can.

    When the snipers show up stay away from the Strips, use the short cut.

    There will be a case to stop T.K.s helicopter, make sure that you leave Denyce in the Royal Flush Plaza somewhere safe. Do not bring her with you because you fast travel to the safe room when the fight is done and she goes with you. You will need do this part quick so she does'nt die.

    Once the army shows up and fails you can go straight to fight Sgt Boykin if you want and think your prepared. Just get her to attack him once and the cheeve is yours.


    First thing you want to do is go to the bookstore (Rags Mags) on the second floor of the Royal Flush Plaza. Grab the leadership book, its in the entrance of the store to the left on the ground. This book will make the survivors more effective while in your party making them smarter and the crippled ones can run on there own. While your on the second floor near the book store there will be an advertisement sign you can climb on and there will be a broad sword.

    Next get Denyce from Roy's Mart during the case to get the Zombrex. I don't remember the name of it but it's the first thing you do once your in the plaza. Give her the broad sword or any strong basic weapon (sledgehammer worked pretty good for me too) so she can defend herself well.

    Now from here you can choose to do only the main story cases if you dont want to deal with other survivors making it more difficult, (but that way is kind of boring to me) or play through normally trying to do as much of the side missions as you can.You may want to do the Wilted Flower case to open the shortcut, it will make it easier when the sniper guys show up to not even go out to the Silver Strip, Platinum Strip, or Fortune Park. The snipers do alot of damage and can take survivors down in a few shots.

    If you need to go back to the safe house for any reason always make sure you leave Denyce either in the maintenence room or the room across from it in the hall to the vent leading to the safe house. If you have survivors with you then you will need to try and seperate Denyce from them so she is alone in one of those rooms. Use the left Trigger and Y to seperaet them into different rooms to get Denyce alone then leave her there in a room.

    After safe room visits she will have taken damage depending on how long you were there. There will always be 3 creamers in The Dark Bean right out side the hall leading to the vent. They should heal her quite a bit but if you need more there's an orange juice in Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow which is nearby.

    When your fighting bosses leave her in a maintenence room or other room where she will be safe. Most of the time she wont spawn right next to you after the cut scene. When i fought the clown on stilts she did spawn next to me so be carefull if she does put her in a room quickly.

    There will be a case to stop T.K.s helicopter, make sure that you leave Denyce in the Royal Flush Plaza somewhere safe. Do not bring her with you because you fast travel to the safe room when the fight is done and she goes with you. You will need do this part quick so she does'nt die. Roll a lot, time them so you roll under the crane arm then press B on the winch and throw the guard rails at the helicopter they do alot of damage.

    Once the army shows up and fails you can go straight to fight Sgt Boykin if you want and think your prepared. She only needs to damage him once then it will pop. You might want to try it with a gun but for me she hit him with a sledge hammer while he was shooting me on the ground.

    LBCeroyWhen i made this strategy it was on my first play through so i had to take extra precautions.

    AaronWi60Fuck! I just made it all the way to the TK helicopter fight and brought her with me, I completely forget that it takes you back to the safe house. I wish I read this sooner! :(

    My last save is 10pm Day 2, so it's not too bad but still really annoying after all my hard work.

    I didn't look at solutions, I just got the leadership magazine, gave her a Battleaxe and kept her health in check.

    For saving survivors, I had to tell them to run down the ramp outside the safe room (by the maintenance room) and keep exchanging weapons with her so she wouldn't run off, then close the door to keep her trapped in that corridor, it worked pretty effectively. :)

    Anyway, time to load up that Day 2 save.

    The solution added by LBCeroy is really good, I didn't need it but it's really close to what I did. I wanted to add a couple of tips:

    It's easier to do this after at least one playthrough. In other words, the more inventory slots available to you the better.

    It's best to do this after buying the keys for the sports car from the Pawn Shop on the second floor of Royal Flush Plaza. This will help you get to your destination fast when you need to get back to the safe house or when you want to go to Yucatan Casino.

    Atlantica Casino: On top of the Octopus that's hanging from the ceiling you will find the book ''Juice Boost''. Get this as soon as possible. To climb on the Octopus just go to the spot where you find the Mermaid survivor. Get the book and the juice effects will last longer.

    The Quickstep juice is your best friend in this game. I think this is by far the most useful juice, use this and the game becomes a lot easier. When you use Quickstep you walk faster and so does the survivors. They rarely get caught when you use it. Very useful against psychos, when Frank needs health take a Quickstep.

    This juice can't be given to Denyce, always have other foods on you.

    Fast way to make lots of Quickstep... Go to Yucatan Casino, use the sports car in Royal Flush Plaza the get there going through Slot Ranch Casino and Food Court. Once inside Yucatan Casino head for the restaurant on your left. Behind the counter you will find a blender and an unlimited supply of wine. Mix two bottles of wine to get the Quickstep.

    The snipers on the Silver Strip can easily be killed, you don't need to kill them but I find that taking out the guy on top of Royal Flush Plaza and the one on top of Atlantica Casino clears a safe path that can be useful. Some Quickstep and a Laser Sword should do the trick.

    For the helicopter fight you don't need to roll under the crane it's dangerous for nothing. Go for the pile of military cases a little bit behind you on your right side near Rebecca. Pick up a box and move it closer. Drop it to a safe distance, the chopper should not be able to hit you where you put it. By the time you do this the chopper will most likely already be on the left side ready to fire just walk to the winch to activate it, if you time this right the chopper won't have time to fire. Pick the military case and throw it on the chopper, repeat this until defeated.

    My inventory at all times:
    - 2 Coffee Creamer (for Denyce)
    - 4 Quickstep
    - Books (Juice Boost and Leadership)
    - Weapons (Spike Bat, Knife Glove, Laser Sword)

    DisguisedMikeHave fun and don't forget to take lots of pictures of Denyce all around Fortune City. All those beautiful memories... she rode with me in my sport car... she drank whiskey in front of a giant pig... she killed zombies with style with her broadsword and then she drank more.

    Denyce always said no when I started to kill the other survivors but when enough blood was spilled she just couldn't resist joining the slaughter. Denyce you Psycho! I'm glad to say that in the end you were the one and only survivor of Fortune's End.

    The strategies already posted are generally the right idea and will work for you. The thing I would change is the decision of stashing Denyce in the Royal Flush Plaza. I prefer shutting her in the Maintenance Room across from the rest room outside in the middle of the Strip. Although it just seems you are trading the bulk of her damage from up front for after the TK fight, I found she takes overall less damage as opposed to how long getting to, and taking out TK seems to give her.

    Putting her in there also gives you plenty of flexibility to get rid of the snipers who can be a nightmare. She takes BIG damage from them and they seem to love shooting at her. Going up to the rooftops does her very little harm as long as you handle business in a reasonable time. Good luck!
