The Dead Rising 2 Prima Official Game Guide is the official guide of Dead Rising 2, released in North America the same day in which Dead Rising 2 was released, September 28, 2010. It is written by Stephen Stratton.

DamageEdit

Precise damage

Template:Centurion Bust which lists:
The official guide damage/strength (3)
The actual weapons strength found in items.txt (75) and
The thrown damage. (100)

The official guide has a scale of 0 to 5 for weapon's damage/strength. This scale is less precise than the actual damage of a Dead Rising 2 weapon, which is found in the data/datafile.big/items.txt file.

This guide lists both the official guide and the actual damage/strength of weapons in its templates/tables, for example, Template:Centurion Bust.

Items.txt also lists "MaxProjectileDamage" which is the damage inflicted when an item is thrown, this is indicated as "thrown damage" in the weapon's template/table.
