                        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.
