Only on Xbox One: Document all your friends and enemies in Dead Rising 4 with all 16 ‘Persons of Interest’ story locations.

Frank West returns to Willamette in Dead Rising 4 to expose another zombie conspiracy, but he can’t do it alone. As you progress through each case, you’ll meet and greet a murder’s row of plot-important characters. Even the not-so-important characters are worth documenting — that’s why the ‘Persons of Interest’ collectible category exists.

There are a grand total of 16 ‘Persons of Interest’ in Dead Rising 4 that Frank West can find. Taking their picture adds them to the archive, along with a biography to help you understand exactly what their deal is. Don’t miss out on any of these special characters with our rundown of locations in order of their first appearance. They’re very easy to miss, and many are only available for short periods during the main story. Make sure to take a picture when you can, because these characters might only appear once.

  • Dr. Russel Barnaby
    • Photo Op: Case 3 – While Dr. Barnaby doesn’t make a personal appearance in Dead Rising 4, you can still add him to the list. During the Blackburn interview, don’t just scan the picture of Dr. Barnaby for evidence — take another picture to add his face to the ‘Persons of Interest’ archive.
  • Maria Eleanor Raquel Fontana
    • Photo Op: Case 4 – At the end of the case, you’ll invade the Willamette Army Reserve base and break into the secret Obscuris facility. Before completing the case, you’ll fight with Commander Fontana. Make sure that you take a picture during this fight, it’s your only chance to add her.
