== Walkthrough ==
You won't need extensive knowledge of maps, just use the back button to access the
in-game map to find the next maintenance room (MR) or area. Most items will be very close to the MR you are at, and the rest you'll be directed to grab and save for later use.

Many Thanks to SirSmurfus for his work on the list, I just put it in the order below.
Big Thank You to BlindHurdler for several suggestions to improve this guide.
Another Big Thanks to Elite1111111111 for many improvements.

NOTE: You will need a save after the tunnels have been unlocked. (Case 2-2 complete)
Several mention that Case 3-2 is required for the Cashier room.
NOTE: It will help to be upgraded enough to carry 8 things in your inventory
NOTE: This will take a little over an hour.
NOTE: Keep in mind that if you do not have the combo card you will only be able to use the light attack with the weapon created. So get the cards later for maximum zombie killing enjoyment.
