Dead Rising 3 – All 101 Combo Weapon and Super Combo Weapon Blueprint Locations

There are 101 combo weapons in Dead Rising 3, which means collecting 101 combo weapon blueprints. This is a time consuming task, but it can be done in your first playthrough.

I was able to collect all 101 combo weapon blueprints on my first playthrough with time to spare, and without rushing a whole lot until the end. I also wasted a lot of time screwing around, leveling up, and hunting for other collectibles, so it’s doable without focusing on collecting entirely.

Note that you can only reach some blueprints in certain chapters, and some by saving specific survivors, since they’ll be locked behind doors that you can’t access otherwise.

Also note that a few of these may have a random spawn which is really hard to keep track of, so let me know if you find any blueprints in different areas than what is listed.

Super Combo Weapon Blueprint Locations

With a little bit of trial and error, I’ve figured out the spawn of the super combo weapons.

How it works is there are several different super combo types. When you find a blueprint of a specific type, you get the next iteration of that weapon no matter where you find the next blueprint. This way, you can’t just find the best version of Reapers for example right off the bat, you end up having to find the first three before you find the Ultimate Grim Reaper.

I’m listing the locations in the order that I found them, so the location number isn’t really important. You can find them in any order you like.

    Thanks for the guide. Helped me find a few that we’re hiding in plain view from me. Also some locations were different like the ultimate Reaper scythe but other than that great job.

      Well, remember that the Super Combo Weapons you receive will always come in order no matter which blueprint location you get them from, which means if you find a Reaper blueprint, the first one (no matter which location you find it at) will always be Grim Reaper, and so on. So you might find the Ultimate Reaper in the location that I found the Grim Reaper, etc. That’s why I didn’t list specific locations for the Super Combo weapons, just the different locations you can find them in.

      Or did you mean that one of my locations was off completely?
