Save your game, then have a friend start their own game and locate the same magazine. Either invite your friend or join them in their game, but from the in-game friends list and not from the main menu. When you arrive in their game or they arrive in yours, they will bring their inventory over with them. The person who joined will then quit, dropping their inventory for the second player to pick up. The person who quit should then reload their own game, and still have their inventory items. They can rejoin and either pick up any items the host has not picked up, or repeat as much times as necessary to acquire the desired number of items. If done with the Rescue magazine, then times it will result in a total of 250% bonus PP to survivor activities (Join and Escort bonuses), which can get you somewhere in the range of 10 million PP in a single playthrough.

Six Shooter hint

You will eventually obtain the Six Shooter revolver by defeating the Cowboy Security Guard Psychopath in the South Plaza. Be sure to hold on to this weapon, which can be found on the sawing board he dies on. You can only have one at any time like all Psychopath weapons, so if you try to exit and re-enter the area to get an extra Six Shooter, you won't find anything on there until you lose the one you're carrying (or that your Co-Op partner is carrying). This weapon is extremely powerful, more so than any rifle other than the Sniper Rifle, and also boasts a great rate of fire. With this weapon, you can easily take out most Psychopaths by simply corner shooting, or in some cases just repeatedly shooting them as most Psychos will be stunned for a brief moment by each shot.
