Barbara Patterson is a survivor appearing in Dead Rising. She is found in the empty store next to Crislip's Home Saloon. She is held hostage by Cliff Hudson during the scoop The Hatchet Man.

The Hatchet ManEdit

In the The Hatchet Man, Barbara was mistaken as a member of the Viet Cong and held captive by the psychopath Cliff. She and two other captives, Rich Atkins and Josh Manning, were trapped inside an empty store next to Crislip's Home Saloon. After Cliff is defeated, Frank unlocks the doors and convinces the three frightened survivors to follow him to the Security Room. If Frank kills one of the survivors before recruitment, none of them will be willing to talk to Frank, and they become impossible to recruit.

Kindell's BetrayalEdit

In Kindell's Betrayal, after being rescued, she will wait in the room with the green door. When Kindell Johnson believes that there is no helicopter coming in three days, he rallies up the other survivors in the same room, including Barbara, to make a break for it. If Frank does not stop Kindell's mutiny, Barbara will leave the Security Room along with the other survivors in the same room. They will no longer count towards the number of rescued survivors.


Depending on the ending, Barbara was either rescued by Ed DeLuca, taken into custody by the Special Forces and eventually released, or killed by Carlito Keyes' bombs.

Infinity ModeEdit

In Infinity Mode, Barbara appears at the Security Room from 5:19:00 to 6:00:00, armed with Sledgehammer, and carrying a Red Cabbage. She also has a Baseball Bat, a Cleaver, a Dumbbell, and a Mailbox.
