                            DEAD RISING 2 WORKSHOP GUIDE
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    by Nekketsu86@aol.com
    
    
    DESCRIPTION
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    This guide shows the weapon combos in the immediate area of each Workshop (the
    ones that you can easily rely on everytime you visit them) and where to find
    each ingredient. Every Workship has at least 2 of these weapon combos
    available.
    
    
    TERMINOLOGY
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Workshop - the area where you create the weapon combos
    Ingredients = the tools/items you combine when creating weapon combos
    Boxes - the area in the left side of the Workshop.
    Shelf - the area in the right side of the Workshop.
    Table - the spot where you combine the weapons.
    Outside - anywhere not inside the double-door area of the Workshop
    Door - the double-door entrance of a Workshop
    Just - a very short distance away
    Far - a large distance away
    WH - the large storage areas nearby some of the Underground workshops
    
    
    
    OTHER INSTRUCTIONS
    -------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    Workshops are named with a 3 character code. The first two refer to the area of
    Fortune City it is located in. The last is a number used to separate multiple
    Workshops in one area apart from each other. Usually they are numbered from
    west to east (Underground workshops are numbered clockwise from the one under
    Royal Flush Plaza). If there is only one Workshop in an area, it has an "X"
    instead of a number.
    
    "x2" after a weapon combo's name means that there are enough ingredients to
    make two of them. "2x" before an ingredient's location description means that
    there are two of them in the same location. "&" separates the discriptions of
    the different locations of two of the same ingredient.
    
    You may not always have enough "ingredients" to make every single weapon combo
    listed for a Workshop. For example, at SS6, you will have to choose between the
    Plate Launcher and the Ripper because of the limited amount of Cement Saws
    available.
    
    
    NOTE: All basic directions (left, right, etc.) are assuming you are facing the
    object refered to (for things outside the Workshop, directions assume you are
    facing toward the Workshop's double-doors from the outside). Cardinal
    directions (north, south, etc.) are relative to the Mall Map.
