Dead Rising 2 Combo Card Weapon Guide

Tesla Ball

Location of Card:
Gotten simply by leveling up to level 40 – 50.

Location of Components:
By duct taping a Bingo Ball Cage to a Battery you get this toy.

Bingo Ball Cage’s are found pretty much only making your way over to One Little Duck Bingo along the Silver Strip. Since it’s a good ways off from a maintenance area you’ll probably want to clear a path with some explosive weapons before grabbing it.

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 one of the more surprising weapons in the game due to how effective it is. When you throw it at a crowd of zombies it is charged with electricity; every enemy that it hits will be shocked to hell and back. On top of that it gives off bursts of electricity that will kill any zombies that happen to be in the vicinity of the ball. To sweeten the cake this is an incredibly enduring weapon, bowling down dozens of zombies before it finally busts. Only the fact that it’s carried in two hands reduces its effectiveness.

Above: Surprisingly effective!

Rating: 3/5



Location of Card:
There is no actual way to find this or receive it via leveling up. Simply combine the two ingredients to get the card for this item.

Location of Components:
For this you will need to combine Nectar and a Queen.

The Queen is the easy part – just find a few large groups of zombies and look for the one that is reaching for the sky or clawing at its head. These are the ones with a Queen in there so kill them to get it.

Nectar on the other hand is gotten by mixing two things of orange juice inside a blender. Another one that works is to mix a pineapple with some liquor. This is usually used to attract Queens to you but when combined with a Queen it has another purpose.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Mixing up a Queen with the same stuff that seems to attract them sounds like rather bad news. Well it is but only for the zombies out there. When you shatter the jar that holds this concoction it will release a crazed Queen that will begin to follow Chuck around. Any zombies that come too close to you will prompt the Wingman to attack them and kill them off left and right. It doesn’t follow you too well but it will kill a whole crapload of zombies along the way. Using up a Queen and some of that sweet, sweet Nectar to make this weapon is a pretty damn steep price so you’ll have to weight the costs.

Notes: A helpful little creature but hard to get.

Rating: 3/5


Items of Note

Blast Frequency Gun



The Blast Frequency Gun can be picked up from only one location in the entire game. You must make your way to the Secret Lab under Palisades Mall, only accessible by completing the cases. Otherwise the only other way to find it is to advance to Case 2-2 and head underground, between the Americana Casino and the Royal Flush Plaza signs on your map (it’s up a ramp, lying on the ground).

When fired this gun has two possible effects: If used against normal zombies it will knock them to the ground, stunning them a bit. The trick is using it save this for the Gas Zombies as its blast will cause this heads to explode. It is heavily suggested that you pick one of these up as soon as you gain access to the Underground Tunnels and hold onto it until you start dealing with the Gas Zombies. While you generally just want to avoid them instead of fighting this makes those situations where you must fight a lot easier.

Light Machine Gun


A Light Machine Gun can be gotten by purchasing it from Just in Time Payday Loans in the Royal Flush Plaza. One can also be found on top of the center structure in the Yucatan Casino right near some Zombrex. Also it can be found on top of Cash Gordon’s, the shop in the Platinum Strip, none too far from the elephant figure. Lastly one can be found near the middle of slide of the water bar in the center of Palisades Mall.

While not necessarily the most powerful weapon in the game the LMG will almost always be enough to handle any situation you might find yourself in. Need to clear an area of zombies? Aim at chest / head level and sweep the gun across the horde. Want to handle a psychopath? Backpedal while aiming at center mass, filling the target with enough holes to ventilate a Buick. Since these are easily accessible you should have at least one of these on hand at all times so that you can handle any problems that arise.

Six Shooter

After defeating Seymour Redding during the “WWJWD?” mission, this can be found on the saw table where he finally ended up. It respawns there for the rest of the game so long as you don’t have one in your inventory when you arrive in South Plaza / Fortune Hotel.


This is a rather fantastic weapon. It’s powerful, has decent range and a surprisingly large clip. Seriously who would think that a Six-Shooter would have sixty freaking shots. The only thing that keeps this from being a permanent fixture in your inventory is often that it is located in a fairly out of the way spot. Should you find yourself needing to fight a psychopath in a medium range gunfight then this is weapon will often do the job by itself.

    *places his bronzed Knife Gloves up on his mantle* Thank you my friends, you have treated me well through my zombie killing career. Yes, the Tesla Ball is a rip snorting load of fun to use, even if it's not the easiest to create.

    Many of the safe rooms in Dead Rising 2 contain the tools required to make combo weapons. It felt kind of redundant to point most of these out as the combo weapons really aren't all that effective. They're fun but you're often better with a shotgun, LMG and a few Spiked Bats. @kyle94: Without the combo card the weapon takes roughly two to three shots to kill an individual zombie. With the combo card it's basically just a glorified shotgun. So overall it seemed kind of like a worthless weapon to me. @Michael: I'd have loved to have been part of the conversation that brought on that whoopsie, heh! I was wondering what the heck that was or if it was a prank from a colleague (a friend made it so that Word replaced every instance of the word "this" with "that". Made for some uh... interesting re-edits.

    For the electric chair. Both items can be found in the BBQ shack next to the Americana casino. There are always two or three wheelchairs outside the maintenance room and the room itself has a battery.

    Nice guide. An easy way to get wingmen and queens is to go to pot of gold in silver strip and combine the 3 orange juices with beer. Grab the chaisaw from the top of the stage and combine it with the motorcyle. Drink one of the nectars then get on the bike and run over zombies. When you get off there should be around 6 queens. Then just fuse some with the nectar.

    I didn't think the gem blower was useless. I don't know what you were doing with it, but when I used it after I got the combo card, it worked rather well. Wasn't practical, but did kill zombies. Hell, it was basically a giant shotgun for me. I remember shooting one zombie next to me and his body went flying while his head floated in mid-air for a second and then fell down.
  • Slayer11496 - October 9, 2010 3:35 a.m.

    I actually thought up combining a blast frequency gun with an amp shortly after finding it. Yay for me!!! :)
  • GamesRadarMichaelGrimm - October 8, 2010 10:28 p.m.

    Sometimes I'm typing in AIM and it's not the active window, and sometimes PickeHitlered happens. @_@ Fixed, and the Guide is complete!
  • misfit119 - October 7, 2010 12:53 a.m.

    Yeah, wow. No idea what the hell happened there. I know my computer was having a seizure thanks to all the video capture while I was typing. What's even more interesting is that typo isn't in my original file. Weird. @leyviur - I found it much easier to grab two bow and arrows from the Chieftains Hut, the two dynamite sticks in RFP and use the two Blambows to slaughter zombies left and right. I see your point though but it's still fairly limited in use.
  • taco12324 - October 5, 2010 10:35 p.m.

    I can't believe that the GR guys haven't noticed that the paragraph on where tennis raquets are was taken over by Hitler. Is this like some kind of new reverse Grammar Nazi that purposely misspells words?
  • RobertW - October 5, 2010 10:08 p.m.

    PickeHitlerd? People, I think we just got Hitler Roll'd...
  • Voltanis - October 5, 2010 11:52 a.m.

    You don't get a combo card for it from Case Zero, but the Beer Hat is a carryover from Case Zero as well. In Still Creek, when making the jump across the alleyway to get to the hunting store, turn right instead of left and follow the planks on top of those buildings to find a lone construction hat. The bowling alley or bar has plenty of beer.
  • Leyviur - October 5, 2010 11:22 a.m.

    An incredible use for the Dynameat is for early leveling. Near the Atlantica casino is a maintenence room where you can make the knife gloves. Right outside this room is a stick of dynamite and hunk of meat. Using this you can throw it at a nearby enemy horde for a giant PP spike that remains significant until level 30, or so. Respawning these items is merely a matter of going into the casino and back out again. I got to around level 35 using this method, and had no trouble running through the story afterwards.
  • chriszewski - October 5, 2010 11:11 a.m.

    Sorry for the double post but there is a much more convenient location for dynamite in the Royal Flush Plaza. Three sticks to be exact. Go toward the exit that leads to Fortune Park but stay in the plaza. Upstairs you will see a red phone booth that you can climb. Climb up onto the overhang for the store underneath and walk over to the broken railing and jump up again. Turn around and jump to the flower box and climb up one last time. There will be a large hot air balloon with a blue stuffed bunny and three glorious sticks of TNT. Its a long jump but easily makeable. Alternatively, instead of jumping to the balloon you can climb into the windows and snag a sniper rifle, steak and a spear. Makes the Blambow more enticing with less travel!
  • chriszewski - October 5, 2010 10:51 a.m.

    A note on the Beer Hat: its usefulness increases signifigantly if you pick up the Drinks magazine and either Health magazine. Drinks - Drinking alcohol no longer makes chuck puke. Found in Atlantica Casino on top of the ceiling fixture near the clam shell.
  • philipshaw - October 5, 2010 10:30 a.m.

    Great guide and you are right in the baseball bat with nails is the best weapon in the game. I used that for most of the game
  • NathanXplosion - October 5, 2010 5:29 a.m.

    My favorite combo weapon has to be the Blitzkrieg, which is a wheelchair, a car battery, and a merc assault rifle. Its not the one I used the most, just the one I had the most fun while using when I did.
