Template:! Collect all five bombs and transport them outside Template:!}

For the Dead Rising 2 case see Case 7-2: The Only Lead.

Starts: Immediately after Case 7-1: The Last Resort.

Case 7-2: Bomb Collector is the fifteenth case Frank West receives. It is activated immediately after the previous case, and is completed after collecting all five bombs and bringing them to the Leisure Park exit.


Frank and Brad set off to retrieve the five bombs hidden in delivery trucks in the maintenance tunnels. Meanwhile, Carlito drives around in a truck in an attempt to run over anybody trying to stop his plan. After Frank collects all the bombs, he transports them in a shopping cart to the parking lot exit. The bombs explode and send Frank flying, but the low gas concentration limits the destruction power to a minimum.

Brad and Carlito confront each other in the maintenance tunnel warehouse. Brad manages to shoot Carlito in the gut, but as he approaches, Carlito whips out a knife and stabs him in the back, before kicking him out into the tunnel. Injured, Brad holds up his flashlight and sees an endless sea of zombies surrounding him.

If Frank heads back to the maintenance tunnel warehouse, he finds a dying Brad whom post-cutscene turns into a zombie.

Isabela's CallEdit

Isabela's call
Dead rising isabela
Dead rising case 7-2 bomb collector
Dead rising case 7-2 bomb collector (2)
Isabela: Can you hear me Frank? The TIME BOMBS should be located inside several trucks parked in the MAINTENANCE TUNNEL. As far as I can tell from the security monitors, it looks like they're split up in five locations. He's slashed the trucks' tires, so you'll have to transport the bombs by hand. Hurry to the MAINTENANCE TUNNEL Frank.[1]

Travel to the TunnelsEdit

Starting from the Security Room, travel to the maintenance tunnels. It might be tempting to try using the maintenance doorways from the mall above to get down to the bombs while staying mostly above-ground, but there is a definite time advantage of being down in the tunnels.

From Paradise Plaza, run across Leisure Park, and travel to the alleyway on the far side, between North Plaza and Wonderland Plaza, to the car park.

Barricade blocking the entrance to the tunnels

Frank needs the motorcycle rather than the red Convertible; while normally the convertible would be better, Carlito has a cement barricade set up just inside the tunnels that only the bike will be able to fit through.

Collection OrderEdit

The map to the left has a recommended order to pick up the bombs. Whether you follow it or not use one or more of the vehicles already in the tunnels - both for the speed advantage they provide, and protection from Carlito.

Last Bomb CollectedEdit

After the last bomb is collected Isabela Keyes calls.

Isabela: Did you get all the TIME BOMBS? Get them outside where the gas will not be a risk. Hurry! There's no time![1]

Carlito AttacksEdit

Dead rising case 7-2 bomb collector (6)

Once Frank picks up the first bomb, Carlito will first appear. He is driving a Delivery Truck and throwing grenades at Frank when Frank stops. If Frank is trying to get away on foot, Carlito will run Frank over. The maintenance tunnels offer precious little cover from zombies, so getting time to eat is very difficult; it's best to just keep moving and try to get enough of a lead on Carlito that Frank can get the next bomb before he shows up.

Carlito will flee if Frank significantly damages him

If Frank significantly damages Carlito, he will flee in the truck, but will return later.

If Frank defeats Carlito, Carlito's Delivery Truck truck tips over. Brad says he will take care of Carlito while Frank collects the rest of the bombs.

Once Frank picks up the final explosive, Carlito will stop chasing after Frank if he has not already been defeated. Frank then needs to take all five bombs to the entrance ramp to complete the Case.

Brad's DeathEdit

{{#ev:youtube|9aM81EGB2sY|300|right|Dead Rising - Cutscene 37 - Brad the zombie}}

Brad has Carlito pinned down in the Maintenance Tunnel Warehouse, but Carlito manages to force Brad out into the zombie-infested tunnels without a weapon.

DRW Case 7-2: Bomb Collector/2

Carlito runs into a wall and looses control of the Delivery Truck as it turns over and slides along the tunnel floor. Carlito gets out and fires at Frank as he approaches, but Frank hides behind the truck.

Brad: Freeze!

Carlito fires at Brad, but Brad dodges to the side

Brad: Shit! I'm gonna go after him. You get those bombs outside, Frank!

Brad chases after Carlito as he runs deeper into the Maintenance Tunnel

DRW Case 7-2: Bomb Collector/4
DRW Case 7-2: Bomb Collector/5

Meanwhile, Brad and Carlito battle it out in the Warehouse of the Maintenance Tunnel. Brad and Carlito both hide behind a shelf and take shots at each other.

Brad: We got rid of your bombs. This is as far as you go today. Just give up and surrender!

A zombie approaches Brad from behind, but he turns around in time to shoot the zombie in the head. Brad leans against the shelf and checks his clip to find that he only has a few bullets left. Brad dashes around the corner and fires off one of his last shots at Carlito as he jumps. The bullet hits Carlito in the chest as Brad falls. Carlito leans over and drops his gun. The gun slides toward Brad. Brad walks toward Carlito with his gun raised.

Brad: Your terrorist days are over Carlito. You're finished.

Carlito pulls out a knife and charges Brad. Brad holds his arm back and the two struggle. Carlito stabs Brad in the back and kicks him through the Warehouse door out into the Maintenance Tunnel. Carlito walks toward the open door of the Warehouse and closes it.

DRW Case 7-2: Bomb Collector/6

Brad moves around a bit in the darkness of the Maintenance Tunnel then turns on his flashlight. He sees nothing but an endless horde of zombies in front of him as he backs up.

Brad: Well, shit...

"Frank... Sounds like you took care of the bombs."

Back in the Parking Area, Frank rushes away from a shopping cart full of bombs as they explode and send him flying. The transceiver goes off and Frank reaches for it.

Jessie: Frank... Sounds like you took care of the bombs. How's Brad?

Frank: The bombs are over and done with. Brad went after Carlito.

Jessie: Copy... Report back here, Frank.

Frank: Yeah...

"We'll go back together. If you're hurt, we'll patch you up."

Brad pats his gun.

Frank moves through the darkness toward the Warehouse entrance of the Maintenance Tunnel with his flashlight. He suddenly hears Brad coughing up ahead.

Frank: Brad? Brad?

Brad: Frank! Don't get any closer!

Frank finds Brad leaning up against the wall

Brad: Stay away, Frank! Don't get near me!

Frank: What's the matter Brad? Are you hurt? I'm comin' over there Brad... We'll go back together. If you're hurt, we'll patch you up.

As Frank's flashlight moves down Brad, he notices that Brad's stomach has been torn open. Frank kneels beside Brad.

Brad: I'm screwed... It doesn't hurt... Not even a little... I'm already dead. Frank... Don't tell Jessie about this.

Brad reaches for his gun. Frank stands back and nods at Brad.[1]

Photo OpportunityEdit

Once the cutscene has ended, head back down to the maintenance tunnels, then find Brad (marked on the map, or take a right once you enter, then the first left and the first right after that) for an optional cutscene and the chance to get the photo you need for the Snuff Shot B Achievement - just be careful not to kill Brad before you take the photo.

Maintenance Tunnel KeyEdit

Frank should also head into the storage room here and pick up the Maintenance Tunnel Key from the rear corner of the room - it will be indispensable later in the game, especially in Overtime Mode.
Case 8-1: Jamming Device begins on September 21, 5:00pm.

Dead Rising: Chop Till You DropEdit

In the Wii edition of Dead Rising, a thirty minute timer is activated once this case begins. Frank must take the white sedan into the tunnels, while the convertible and the motorcycle are absent. After Frank picks up the second bomb, Otis will call about Kindell's Betrayal, and if it is not completed before Frank finds all the bombs, Kendell will leave with Leah Stein, Wayne Blackwell, Jeff Meyer, Natalie Meyer, Jennifer Gorman, and Gil Jimenez.

After the fourth bomb is picked up, Isabela will call saying that the last bomb has been taken, and Frank must get it back from Carlito before it goes off. This can be done by ramming into Carlito's delivery truck as Frank is chasing him. After which, the case is automatically completed and Frank is taken back to the security room.


Dead rising case 7-2 bomb collector (37)
  • The Parking lot is devoid of zombies after the explosion.
  • The Dead Rising: Game Script states that "Otis (Option: Talk) [After Bomb Collector] "Looks like you saved our asses Frank. Thanks." It is unclear when this dialogue happens.[1]
  • If Frank is not in his vehicle when he defeats Carlito, the vehicle will be gone after the cutscene that occurs.
  • If Frank loses his vehicle before completing the mission, use a shopping cart.
  • Mixing a few Quicksteps before starting the mission may also be helpful.
  • If this case is not completed in time, ending F is unlocked.
  • During the cutscene where Brad and Carlito battle in the Warehouse of the Maintenance Tunnel, the on-screen caption of Brad's statement to Carlito reads "Your [sic] finished".
