Carl Schliff is a psychopath in Dead Rising 2. He is a mailman that is determined to never fail at his job and can be found in the mission Mail Order Zombrex. He reappears in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record with the same role, though he accuses Frank West of mail fraud after he signs for a package, declaring that he has damaged the postal service and America and attacks Frank as a result.

Tape It Or DieEdit

Tape It Or Die blogger Wallace Hertzog met Carl Schliff during the Fortune City Outbreak he blogged:

"[My father] once said to me that there are two jobs that he has the utmost respect for: soldiers, and postmen. I understood why he respected soldiers. But postmen? That through me for a loop at the time. Now I think I understand...[Carl] seemed more worried about someone signing for his delivery...than he did about being bitten. I can respect that, although I think he may be a little out of touch with reality."[1]

Mail Order ZombrexEdit

In Mail Order Zombrex, Carl is a mailman that has never failed at his job and plans to keep it that way, regardless of whether or not there's an outbreak going on. Chuck Greene spots Carl trying to deliver a package in the Royal Flush Plaza. Noticing Chuck, Carl asks him to sign for the package. Chuck tries to tell Carl about the zombies, but fails in getting through to him. Chuck sees that the package Carl has is Zombrex, and realizes that he is willing to hand it over in return for anyone's signature. Chuck takes the oppurtunity and signs for it, but his signature allows Carl to identify him, and believing he is the cause of the outbreak, refuses to give him the Zombrex, instead giving him a mailbomb. Chuck tosses the bomb back into Carl's mailcart, which explodes.

Carl and Chuck fight, and Carl is defeated. Chuck then takes the Zombrex out of Carl's bag saying he needs it for his daughter. With his dying breath, Carl signs his own clipboard and pulls out another bomb package, letting it detonate in his hands, blowing him into pieces.

Sandbox ModeEdit

Carl is one of the crazed survivors Frank can fight in Sandbox Mode. He will spawn in front of The Man's Sport in Royal Flush Plaza. Once defeated he drops his shotgun and $25,000.


  • Carl is one of the few psychopaths to attack Chuck on semi-legitimate grounds. He genuinely believes Chuck to be responsible for the zombie outbreak, and otherwise simply wishes to continue delivering the mail. Although the fact that he has plentiful mail bombs on hand might imply otherwise, unless it is for self-defense against zombies.
  • Carl's character is a nod toward the term "going postal," or going violently insane, that originated from the stereotype that postal workers are more likely to snap than the average civil-servant. He will also yell the phrase when throwing mail bombs.

  • Carl has a pen with the Dead Rising 2 logo on it, as seen when he asks Chuck to sign for the Zombrex.
  • Even if Katey has turned, Chuck will still say he needs the Zombrex for his daughter in the ending cutscene.
  • Carl has a tattoo of his postal service's logo on his arm.
  • Carl's boss music is Postman, an original song included in the Dead Rising 2 Soundtrack.
  • Carl is similar to Steven Chapman from the first game, both being very attached to their jobs, and attacking the protagonist for reasons related to their jobs. Steven attacked Frank because he believed him to be there to vandalize and Carl attacking because he believed Chuck responsible for the outbreak.
  • Carl appears on the icon symbol for the achievement Camera Crazy in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.
  • In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, his body is blown up and all that remains are his work boots that score Brutality when photographed. The same thing happens with Sgt. Dwight Boykin.
  • In Dead Rising 2 Carl is yelling at The Chieftain's Hut. But in Dead Rising 2: Off the Record Carl is yelling at The Man's Sport.
  • Carl is voiced by Samuel Vincent, the real life brother of Gabe Kouth, who voiced Evan MacIntyre and Johnny James.[Verification needed]
