Case 0-1: Find Katey ZombrexEdit
Travel to the road block next to the Quarantine Zone
Brockett Gas Station safe houseEdit
After the Introduction, and two screens explaining Zombrex, Chuck will begin the game in the Brockett Gas Station. The Brockett Gas Station is a safe house where the game can be saved, where Chuck can escort survivors too, and create combo weapons with the maintenance bench. Katey will wait here the entire game. There are several weapons in this room.
Chuck's first Combo WeaponEdit
Walk to the brown maintenance bench. A yellow action icon with a hand will appear prompting Chuck to "Place Item". Press the button to place the first item on the bench. An explanation screen will appear, explaining how maintenance benches work. A blue wrench action icon will then appear, prompting Chuck to combine. Press again.
Another cutscene will begin, showing that Chuck has made his very first combo weapon, a Spiked Bat, and explaining what a combo weapon is.
Adjacent rooms in the Safe HouseEdit
In the adjacent room is the main entry where Chuck pushed the vending machine across to stop the zombies. This room has Orange Juice (to the left on the garage door) and Snacks. Pick up at least one orange juice.
Roof of the Safe HouseEdit
On the roof is a sniper rifle near the front of the store. The roof is reached by a ladder behind the main entrance room counter.
Car Scrap YardEdit
After creating the Spiked Bat and picking up at least one orange juice, exit the garage. The exit Chuck will use is in the garage Katey is in, next to the maintenance bench. The door exits into a car scrap yard, turn left and walk around the derelict cars.
Save Game shackEdit
There is a small blue shack at the edge of the Auto Scrap Yard. Enter this shack. A Explanation screen appears explaining saving.
In this shack are two doors, one to the left and one directly in front of Chuck. Open the door directly in front of Chuck with the bathroom sign above the door. Here is a bathroom which is a save point. This is one of three save points in Still Creek. Save the game.
The other door is to Still Creek. Open the door.
Approaching Quarantine ZoneEdit
As Chuck approaches the edge of town, there is a red quarantine sign and stop sign. A cutscene begins, starting Case 0-2: Find Zombrex.
Case 0-2: Find ZombrexEdit
Search the ambulance for Zombrex
|Chuck Greene begins this case climbing a tanker. The tanker overlooks the overrun Quarantine Zone. Chuck spots an ambulance next to some tents.
As this case begins an information screen appears which states:
- The bridge out of town is blocked with wreckage and zombies.
- Search the quarantine zone for clues about what happened here.
- Search for Zombrex and find a way to escape from Still Creek.
At this point the case file appears and an opportunity to save the game. Save the game.
Traveling through the quarantine zoneEdit
To avoid zombies, Chuck can jump from car to car in the traffic jam.
Jump down and head towards the brown tents and ambulance. The ambulance is on the left.
Open the ambulance door and a cutscene begins.
Case 0-3: Broken BikeEdit
Return the broken bike to the Brockett Gas Station Safe House
The information screen states:
After the information screen, the case begins with Chuck behind a utility cart. Push to begin pushing the cart. Follow the guide arrow, backtracking back to the gas station.
As Chuck pushes the cart near the door to the safe house shed, the brief full black load screen starts, and a cutscene begins. For text and screenshots of the cutscene see Case 0-3.
Case 0-4: Find Bike PartsEdit
Find five bike parts around town needed to fix the bike
As soon as the cutscene with Katey ends, the Case File screen appears, showing that Case 0-4 is Engaged. It further explains that:
- GOAL: Find Bike Parts
- DESTINATION: Unknown
- I need to search around town for the five bike parts I need.
The game again asks if you want to save your game. Select yes.
A Second information screen appears, called Bike Parts. It explains that:
- You need to find replacement parts and bring them back to the shop to repair the damaged bike.
- The parts are located around Still Creek. Some parts may not be easy to find...
- Check the Bike Parts screen in the Pause Menu to see your progress!
Preparing to return to Still CreekEdit
After the Bike Parts screen, Chuck starts in the garage. You can now look at the Bike Screen on the pause menu to see the parts needed to finish the bike.
Location of five bike part itemsEdit
|Gasoline Canister||Brockett Gas Station in front near gas pump.|
|Wheel||Still Creek Pawnshop sold for $5,000 after rescuing Dick Jones.|
|Handle Bar||Used as a weapon by Jason Wong behind Uncle Bill's Department Store he wants a Broadsword before he gives the handle bar to Chuck. This is found above Momma's Diner or in Bob's Fish 'n Hunt (reached from roof). Alternativly it is possible to kill him and take the handlebars by force, however he will defect and attack you.|
|Bike Forks||In a small shed between Big Buck Hardware and the Quarantine Zone. The key is found in Still Creek Hotel, reached by the fire escape in the alley.|
|Engine||In the alley way next to Still Creek Movie Theater.|
Bike parts as weaponsEdit
Bike parts as weapons
All of the bike parts can be used as a weapon, and they eventually break like normal weapons.
Wheel: Save Dick JonesEdit
After the cutscene, a survivor, Dick Jones, is trapped on top of a van, surrounded by zombies.
Kill zombies and talk to Dick JonesEdit
Kill most of the zombies around the van. One well placed queen can kill all of the zombies around the van.
|Rescuing Dick Jones photos: Shooting all the zombies around the van|
After most of the zombies are killed, jump on top the van and speak to Dick.
Rescuing pawnshop owner Dick
Dick: Hey Buddy! Can you help me out?
Dick: Thanks, friend. I'm the owner of the local pawnshop. Do you think you could help me get back there? I'll open the shop for you if you help me out. Talk to me when you're ready to go.
Dick: Let's get a move on.
Follow Dick Jones to the pawnshop and speak to himEdit
Follow Dick up the street to his pawnshop.
Dick at the entrance of his pawnshop
Dick: Thanks for keeping me safe. I own this pawnshop. I know you helped me out but I can't just give things away for free. Maybe I'll give you a good deal.
Dick: Okay, lets go.
Thanks for getting me out of that mess. Is there anything you need from my store?
In Still Creek PawnshopEdit
There are 8 items for sale in the Still Creek Pawnshop. Chuck should buy the wheel now. If Chuck does not yet have enough money to buy the wheel, see the next section below.
- The wheel is essential for successfully completing the game
- Zombrex is essential if Chuck wants to rescue Sharon Riesinger, Nikki Valentino, and Tia Hernandaz and be able to also give Katey her dose from 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm.
If you want to complete the game and rescue all survivors, Save money and only buy the wheel then the Zombrex.

Not enough money to buy the wheelEdit
Chuck begins the game with $2000. If Chuck does not have enough money to purchase the $5,000 wheel yet, walk across the street to the Still Creek Casino.
Outside the casino doors is $300 on the ground.
Chuck can acquire around $10,200 every trip into Still Creek Casino, which is the fastest way to make money.
Play the Barnyard Bonanza clusters 5 times each (each play costs $100) for 5 guaranteed wins (pays out $300; total net gain of $1000 per cluster). This does not work on the Trouble With Turkeys slot machines, and Chuck will lose your money if he plays them.
Keep in mind that all of the money inside and outside respawns (reappears again) when there is a load screen with a picture. So for example, if Chuck were to return to the safe house, which has a load screen with a picture, then return to the Casino, all of the money and items would have returned.
Purchase the wheel and return to the safe houseEdit
After purchasing the wheel return to the safe house. On the way Chuck can pickup the gas canister which is just outside of Brockett Gas Station.
|If necessary, returning to the pawnshop||Returning to the pawnshop||Returning to the pawnshop|
|Chuck may want to close the door||Stand close to the wheel and press||A cutscene will start|
|When the cutscene ends, walk over to the wheel||Pick up the wheel with||Carry the wheel out of the pawnshop|
|If Chuck is hit by a zombie he will drop the wheel||Dropping the wheel||Run back to the gas station|
|Run back to the gas station||At the bike press||The Achievement Part Way There is awarded.|
The Gasoline Canister is the easiest bike part to acquire. Chuck can acquire it as he is carrying the wheel back to the Brockett Gas Station safe house. It is in front of the Brockett Gas Station safe house, near a gas pump.
Checking the Bike part screenEdit
You can check the bike part screen to see Chuck's progress thus far.
Sub-case name: Treasure in the Alley
The engine is found in an alleyway adjacent to the Still Creek Movie Theater. Although the engine is found in an alley open to the street, the easiest way to explain how to reach this engine is through the theater.
Travel through the concession stand.
Travel through the movie theater itself.
On the right side is a door. When Chuck opens the door he unlocks it, satisfying one portion of the Lockmith achievement.
Turn to the right.
Half way down the alley way is the engine. Pick it up and return to the Brockett Gas Station safe house. Remember that all items except for the gas canister must be carried with two hands, and Chuck drops the item if he attempts to switch to another item in his inventory.

Pick up the bike forks.
Return the bike forks to Brockett Gas StationEdit
Return the bike forks to the Brockett Gas Station safe house. Now for Chuck's final bike part.
The handle bars are the most difficult item to acquire, as the broadsword must be acquired before the handle bars can be secured and the broadsword is in a very remote location. The broadsword is above the entrance to Momma's Diner and in Bob's Fish 'n Hunt which can only be accessed the first time through the roof.
Acquiring the broadswordEdit
- See Case 0-4: Find Bike Parts/Longer route for a more difficult route to the broadsword.
After returning the bike forks exit the Brockett Gas Station safe house.
Travel to the second floor of the hotel and jump out of one of the windows in the hall leading to room with the shack key.
Run across Momma's Diner Roof.
On the overhang is the broadsword. Jump down to the overhang.
The broadsword is on the overhand above the entrance of Momma's. Drop down and pick it up.
Chuck only needs one broadsword for the handle bar. The other two broadswords are located in Bob's Fish 'n Hunt, which is first only accessible from the roof, as the door is locked. An explanation of how to reach this store is found on the Bob's Fish 'n Hunt page.
Kill Jason for the handle barsEdit
Easy way to acquire the handlebars
Trading the broadsword for the handle barsEdit
Chuck's destination is the parking lot behind Uncle Bill's Department Store.
Travel to this parking lot.
Speaking to Archie gets Chuck nowhere. Archie continues to say:
"I'm a big fan, Chuck. Motorcross and ass kicker."
Speak to Jason instead.
Jason Wong is using the handle bars as a weapon. Speak with Jason Wong, he will ask for a broadsword before he gives Chuck the handle bars.
The handle bars are a killer weapon
Jason: Whoa, Archie! Check it out! Isn't that the motorcross star Chuck Greene? Awesome!
Archie: It totally is! Dude, can you help us out with these nasty zombies?
Chuck: Hey, I'm trying to fix up my bike and I need a handle bar. Think I could have the one you got there?
Jason: This thing makes a killer weapon, bro. I'm gonna need a better weapon if I'm going to give this up.
Jason: Get me a Broadsword. I bet that hunting store would have one. A sword would be wicked!
Jason: Dude! Sweet! Now I'm like a viking warrior.
Chuck now has the handlebars.
Escorting Jason and ArchieEdit
Jason will join Chuck.
Followed immediately by Archie.
Giving Chuck a bonus of 1,500 prestige points each.
Taking the broadsword from JasonEdit
Trade the broadsword for a weaker weapon
The broadsword is a powerful weapon. Before entering at the Brockett Gas Station safe house, trade Jason something for the broadsword, either food or a weapon.
Complete the escort and deliver the handle barsEdit
The load screen will start, followed by a cutscene.
Jason will exclaim: "I can't believe it! Chuck Greene is here in Still Creek. Thanks, dude!"

I don't want to risk traveling with Katey until she gets her next dose of Zombrex. She'll need it between 7:00 PM and 8:00 PM.
Chuck must bring Zombrex to Katey. If Chuck gave the Zombrex found in the ambulance in Case 0-2: Find Zombrex to Sharon he must purchase more Zombrex from Dick Jones at the Still Creek Pawnshop for $25,000.
Purchase Zombrex from Still Creek PawnshopEdit
Travel to the Still Creek Pawnshop.
Buy the Zombrex.
After buying the Zombrex, it will drop in front of Dick.
Pick up the Zombrex
After collecting the zombrex Chuck needs to stock up on firepower for The Mechanic case. Visit Bob's Fish 'n Hunt and pick up an assault rifle, broadsword and shotgun. Return to the Brockett Gas Station safe house.
Heal yourself if necessary with orange juice from the next room and pick an extra carton. As Chuck approaches Katey the yellow action icon will appear with the text "Give Zombrex". Press . A cutscene begins.
For the cutscene in which Chuck gives Katey Zombrex, see Zombrex 1.
To beat the mechanic:
- Acquire the assault rifle from Bob's Fish 'n Hunt. See Bob's Fish 'n Hunt on how to access this store from the roof.
