Dead Rising 2 Combo Card Weapon Guide

We help you find every Dead Rising 2 combo weapon and rate the best and worst of the bunch

Location of Card:
Gotten by leveling up somewhere between levels 10 - 20

Location of Components:
For this you’re going to need a Wheelchair and a Battery.

The Wheelchair is gotten pretty much only by searching around the various areas. It’s pretty easy to find them with a bit of looking as the zombies are generally pushing them. An easy one can be found near the exit to Fortune Plaza in Royal Flush Plaza. Otherwise it just takes a bit of looking around to find one.

Getting the Battery is a bit trickier since these are somewhat rare. They can be found in various locations throughout the city as well as in several maintenance rooms but your best bet is to go to the maintenance room in the rear of Tunemakers. This room always has two batteries in it.

Descriptions of Weapons:
By sticking a battery to the metal frame of a wheelchair you can give a zombie the ride of its life... err, rather unlife! The ability to just ram down zombies is fun and watching them get the unliving crap electrocuted out of them is a blast. Sadly this suffers the fate of all two handed weapons in that it’s impossible to store this (obviously) but it also has a serious lack of endurance, breaking rather fast if you charge through zombie hordes with it. Not exactly what you’d expect of a weapon designed to charge through zombies.

Notes: An interesting but useless weapon.

Rating: 1/5

Location of Card:
Gotten by leveling up somewhere between levels 20 – 40.

Location of Components:
The Electric Rake requires that you use a Rake and a Battery.

You can get Rakes most reliably by searching near patches of dirt and plants. A quick place to get them is against the Royal Flush Plaza map structure right outside of The Chieftains’ Hut. It’s partially hidden by the greenery but it’s there. There is almost always one in the safe house right near the large safety doors as well.

Getting the Battery is a bit trickier since these are somewhat rare. They can be found in various locations throughout the city as well as in several maintenance rooms but your best bet is to go to the maintenance room in the rear of Tunemakers. This room always has two batteries in it.

Descriptions of Weapons:
This is a rather excellent weapon – every time you poke a zombie with it they are shocked, killed and sent flying all over the place. While it can be a bit tricky to use this weapon properly if you dive into a group of zombies with the right mindset you can destroy zombies en masse. When you strike a zombie with it a spark is created; if this spark, or the rake itself, touches another zombie then that zombie is killed as well. By stabbing it into a large group of zombies you can kill three or four zombies per swing.

Notes: Good but hard to carry around.

Rating: 3/5

Location of Card:
During Day 3 you will have the ability to speak to some men from Tape It or Die to complete a mission for them. On Day 4 at 9am you will receive a case to rescue these schmucks. Get them back to the safe house for this combo card.

Location of Components:
For this you’ll need to combine a Vacuum Cleaner with some Saw Blades.

Chuck can find the Vacuum Cleaner by heading over to the maintenance room in the South Plaza closest to the hotel. This is probably the simplest place to find one of these blasted contraptions as the only other place to find them is inside the VIP room of the Yucatan Casino.

Saw Blades are easily found by leaving the safe room and searching the nearby hallways. In the first boiler room you can find many of these lying around and they don’t get much harder to find, especially in maintenance rooms.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Take the Defiler, make it a bit slower, only let it hit one enemy at a time and increase its damage dealing capability to get the Exsanguinator. While useful for killing the tougher zombies in one hit it’s not actually all that useful in combat since everything else works against it. Not only is it slow but it needs to be revved up, like a chainsaw, if you drop it and it’s all too easy to get hit which will, surprise surprise, make you drop the blasted thing. Honestly there’s no reason to use this with better combo weapons out there.

Notes: Powerful but slow and cumbersome.

Rating: 1/5

Location of Card:
Gotten by leveling up somewhere between levels 10 – 30.

Location of Components:
For this oddity you’re going to need the Toy Spitball Gun and a Tiki Torch.

The Toy Spitball Gun is found, like most of the toys, by going to any children’s toy store. A good example is Ultimate Playhouse in Palisades Mall where you can find this and many other objects for further zombie humiliation.

Tiki Torches can be gotten from a few very specific locations. The watery bar area in the center of the Palisades Mall has a pair of them. More can be found around the area where you encounter Ted and Snowflake in the Yucatan Casino.

Descriptions of Weapons:
There’s something to be said for a weapon that lets you wipe out enemies without doing pretty much any work. After you shoot off a few flaming nerf balls at the enemies they will be bouncing all over the place and setting all of your enemies on fire. This makes this weapon useful decimating any given horde of zombies but it doesn’t really help with killing off zombies’ right about to chow down on you. Honestly the only real use for these sorts of weapons is to thin out the huge zombie hordes underground so fire a few into a crowd and watch them all burn down.

Notes: An interesting, and fun, form of crowd control.

Rating: 2/5

Location of Card:
This is gotten during the “Everybody Loves Slappy” case by defeating Brent Ernst, the Slappy mascot, in the Palisade Mall.

Location of Components:
Somehow by attaching a Watergun to a Gasoline Canister you get this crowd pleaser.

Waterguns can be found, like most of the toys, by going to any children’s toy store. A good example is Ultimate Playhouse in Palisades Mall where you can find this and many other objects for further zombie humiliation. Others can be located in pretty much any body of water, whether it is pools or fountains.

Gasoline Canisters are a bit tougher to find as they aren’t exactly common. The only place that we’ve found them that is easily accessible, and that isn’t saying much, is in the South Plaza. Head towards the middle maintenance room along the southern wall and it will be in a corner just outside. One can apparently be found in Chris’ Fine Foods as well. Otherwise they’re mostly in the underground tunnels.

Descriptions of Weapons:
This is about as simple a concept as you can possibly get – a gun that sprays fire all over the place, burning down your undead foes with ease. Sadly this thing doesn’t have that much range which makes it not so useful for dealing with anything but large groups of the basic zombie. It’s doubly useless against mercs and psychopaths since they can use guns or rapid movements to throw off your ability to fight back.

Notes: Useful for crowd control but little else.
