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:
Examine the “Paddle Party Massacre” movie poster located on the Silver Strip. Check just outside of the entrance to the Slot Ranch Casino.

Location of Components:
For this beast you’ll need a Kayak Paddle and just one chainsaw even though it clearly uses two of them.

The kayak Paddle is somewhat elusive but it can be found by going to the Silver Strip. There is one hidden along the side of Hot Excitorama, in the alley that leads to the Maintenance Room. Another can be found in the central grotto of the Palisades Mall, hidden in the greenery near the bar.

Chainsaws are a bit easier as you can get them by going to the maintenance room near Hot Excitorama, right near the Paddle. This safe room is your best bet as both components are right there for your convenience. Another can be found in the center water bar in Palisades Mall behind one of the bar counters. If that doesn’t work hardware type stores will have some more of them.

Descriptions of Weapons:
As a big ol’ kayak paddle with two chainsaws there isn’t a whole lot of subtlety behind this weapon. Chuck just kind of walks forward bopping it left and right as you swing it, cutting zombies in half. It can be used a whole lot before breaking meaning you can cut through a huge horde of foes easily. As an added bonus any zombies who come too close to it will be pushed back by the spinning chainsaw. Sadly as you cannot stow this nor pick anything else up with it in hand you’re kind of stuck with this one once you put it together. Just be careful with it and only put it together when necessary… or going on a huge killing spree.

Notes: Great for clearing crowds but unwieldy.

Rating: 3/5 (4/5 in co-op)

Parablower

Location of Card:
Gotten by simply leveling up between levels 15 – 25.

Location of Components:
You can get this by combining a Parasol with a Leaf Blower.

Parasols are most easily gotten by heading over to the food court. There a number of the restaurants, notably the Italian restaurant, have a number of umbrellas out in front of them that you can pick up. There are also plenty along the outdoor strip areas that only take a little bit of looking to find.

Leaf blowers on the other hand are a bit harder to get your hands on. They are found in a very few maintenance rooms that are fairly out of the way but there is one that is close at hand. In Fortune Park check in the grassy patches south of the maintenance room in the middle to find it lying on the grass.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Who would have figured that an automatic umbrella opener would be an effective weapon against the hordes of zombies? Every time you open the Parablower it will send every zombie in the area flying away from you, often killing them in that one hit. This is interesting and all but as a two handed weapon that is dropped whenever you’re hit, something that can happen easily in a large crowd of zombies, its usefulness is seriously hampered. This is fun to mess with once or twice but overall it’s quite the weak weapon.

Notes: Amusing but useless

Rating: 1/5

Location of Card:
After 9am on day 3 head to KokoNutz Sports Town in the Palisades Mall. In the back you will find a door labeled Tape It or Die – speak to the survivors here to get a quest. Upon completion of this quest, bringing him a Cement Saw and Plates, you get this card.

Location of Components:
By combining some Plates with a Cement Saw you get this thing.

Plates can be found in almost every restaurant, diner, shop and certain stores. They’re really not that hard to find although by checking out Antoine’s on the second floor of the Royal Flush Plaza you will find these pretty quickly and none too far from a safe room.

The Cement Saw is needed for a few combo weapons and they can be found pretty much exclusively in South Plaza. Check under the awnings in the central hallways of the area to find it lying on the ground with some other items.

Descriptions of Weapons:
By Thor’s holy armpits this is a weapon that can take you by surprise! Using the spinning cement saw you launch plates at an incredibly high speed towards the zombies. You haven’t lived until you’ve seen a plate cut through a zombie like tissue paper. It’s rather efficient and pretty dangerous especially since if a plate should miss its target then it will ricochet off of the walls at an angle until it impacts a zombie.

Notes: Dangerous and amusing.

Rating: 3/5

Location of Card:
This is obtained simply by leveling up at any point between 1 and 10.

Location of Components:
The pole weapon requires a push boom and a machete.

Push brooms are found all over the place in both the safe room and in Royal Flush Plaza, just outside the safe room entrance. Generally speaking just searching around in the back areas of the plazas will let you find at least one of these.

Machetes are pretty easy to get your hands on regardless of where you are. Albert’s Apparel in Royal Flush Plaza has them as do the display cases in Shanks in the Palisade Mall. You can occasionally find them in kitchen areas of restaurants as well.

Descriptions of Weapons:
This is actually a surprisingly good weapon, more so than you might think. Just jamming on the basic attack button you can kill lots of zombies with those individual swipes and slice your way through hordes with ease. Heck it even does a pretty good job against psychopaths if you don’t have anything better. If you find yourself surrounded then use the heavy attack to chop all the surrounding zombies to pieces. Honestly this weapon is better than you might expect just be mindful of its somewhat low endurance.

Notes: Quite the useful weapon.

Rating: 4/5

Location of Card:
Gotten simply by leveling up between levels 25 – 40.

Location of Components:
This weapon is a combination of a 2x4 chunk of wood as well as a Lawnmower.

You can find 2x4’s all over the place, namely there is one inside of the safe room and a few scattered around the mall areas. Others can be found by going to the maintenance room along the Platinum Strip, near the sex shops, and searching around the dumpsters.

Chuck can find Lawnmowers by heading on over to the water area in the middle of Fortune Park, near the maintenance room. Just outside of the room is a lawnmower just sitting there, waiting to be used.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Who wouldn’t think that a lawnmower you hold in your hands to slice enemy faces off, would be a bad idea? Holding this in his hands Chuck thrusts it at the zombies to shred their torso. Sadly because he has removed all semblances of handles from the thing he uses this in as slow and ponderous a manner as possible which makes it of singular uselessness against the hordes that zombies always come in. Make it, use it once or twice and then move on to better stuff.

Notes: Ponderous and slow on the attack.
