    The Juice Boost Magazine is located on the octopus platform in the Atlantica Casino (It replaces the Drinking Magazine)

    And the Drinking Magazine is in the Amaericana Casion which can be reached after jumping across the lights.

    I am also sure one of the Gambling Magazines is located upstairs in Bennie’s Bar & Grill

    Hope I could help

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Me again

      Excuse my poor punctuation

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com JoyStiicks

    Gamblers 2 is located on top of the BBQ shack in the americana casino.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com mike allegretto

    oops cory! the mod made a mistake and took your comment to mean gambling 1 is also in the restaurant!

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Cory

      I made a fix to it. Thanks mate.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Cory

    There is a visible mistake above. Gambling Magazine 1 & 2 are reported to be in the same location but I have discovered where they are. The second magazine one is upstairs in Bennie’s Barbecue Shack (same location as posted) and the first Gambling Magazine is upstairs in the central Grotto in the Palisades Mall where the water slide is. It is resting on top of a table.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com mike allegretto

    i was told that the last gambling mag was in a safe deposit box. since there are no keys in sandbox mode does its location shift to somewhere else or are we borked?

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com mike allegretto

    the building mag is on top of a scaffold past the hotel area in one of the hallways. don’t remember the exact spot but its right in that general area. Also the ninja hood can be found in a secret room accessible by climbing a tall series of scaffolds north of the starting area. it also bears mentioning that all of the dlc suits from the first dr2 are in this game as secret collectibles obtainable by doing various things. the chest piece is gained by killing 1,000+ zombies. you need to establish a new section for this. i am also told that the psycho outfit is gaiend by killing the mailman psycho and the mask is found on a bench somewhere.

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com mike allegretto

      i believe the general area for the hood is the food court area.

      • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sterling

        It’s actually in the royal plaza. You have to climb a vending machine to get to the secret room.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com JoyStiicks

    *Psychopath mask is located on a bench inside the chapel : Swept Away

      Thanks for the information Cory, I’ve decided to create a new thread as the costumes are a bit different to the magazines.

      http://www.gamersheroes.com/dead-rising-2-off-the-record-hidden-costume-guide

      Have you thought about writing for us regularly? You’ve submitted a ton of information here, if you play newly released games often, writing guides via our Earn Money Gaming link could actually earn you a few $$ for your hard work. Either way, your comments are very much appreciated.

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com mike allegretto

      correction. you get the ninja chest piece for 1k+ kills

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com snofox

      I just got the S ending today, but still don’t have the complete outfit. I have the helm, boots, and body and was wearing them already when I beat the story… so did my ps3 glitch or what?

    For any of you going for the zombie kill achievements with the suv, I just found the car durability mag on top of the movie theater. To get up there you need to jump on the vending machine to the left of the theater near the stairs that lead to the entrance of the safe room that Frank and the other survivors ran to in the beginning. Then just follow the edge of the buildings and there you go.

  • Lexo

    Something i found is that it has an effect on the laser eyes weapon,its really handy in clearing out groups of zombies and when using the magazine last for a long time

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Sandbox Mode

    What about sandbox mode, if you go and try to get the key, its not there, and the security boxes do not display, so getting a 3rd gambling magazine in sandbox mode is impossible… :(

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com Rich

      Yup. Sad but true. If anyone finds the 3rd Gambling magazine in Sandbox mode PLEASE post that! But I believe it is unavailable.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Miles

    BLADE MAGAZINE – You can find it at the same spot as Bargaining #1 at the news stand.

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com Dr Bob Barker

    • http://www.gamersheroes.com sam

  • http://www.gamersheroes.com sandbox

    is there a 3th gabmbling magazine in sandbox mode? there are no keyes, so there is no bank boxes. do the third magazine eksist?

  • Mark

    Actually the gambling magazines increase your winnings from slots and other casino games. Holding one doubles your winnings, holding two triples it and all three should quadruple it.

    • William

      Not to mention if u get all gambling magazines i think u have a 99 or 100% chance of winning at poker, especially useful if u r trying to beat Jack who is unbelievably skilled (or intimidating) to play against. Last poker game i played was easy i kept going all in n they were too but i ended up constantly getting the best cards. Well good luck guys, hey, if anybody still plays DR2: OTR n wants to play online, add me on PSN at: waplayer . 2x thumbs up if u got a mic. :)
