Dead Rising 2 Combo Card Weapon Guide

Air Horn

Location of Card:
This is obtained by giving Katey a toy.

Location of Components:
The air horn requires you to have a pylon (traffic cone) and some spray paint. These can be found:

Pylons can be found either in the safe room, near the exit to the city at large, or outside on almost every map. A bit of careful looking will almost always reveal one pylon that can be used.

Spray paint can be found all over the place really, especially the green variety, but a bunch of it can be found right out of the safe house by going to In the Closet, the record store. There’s an infinite pile of the stuff right there waiting to be grabbed.

Descriptions of Weapons:
By holding the button down you will blow the horn, building up a surge in any zombies that stuns them and finally causes their heads to explode. You can easily turn in a circle, pushing back nearby zombies while focusing on one direction will cause the spectacular head explosions. This is one of the lamer weapons in that the deaths aren’t particularly interesting nor is the item particularly deadly. Overall it’s interesting to use once before never touching it again.

Notes: Interesting but useless.

Rating: 1/5



Location of Card:
Gotten by leveling up somewhere between levels 20 - 30

Location of Components:
By combining a Drill Motor with a Pitchfork you get this beast.

Drill Motors can be gotten by going to a number of out of the way locations but the most reliable one is in the Palisades Mall. From the maintenance room in the south west head towards the slot machines and jump on top of the first island to find it. The rest involve getting into the upper areas of the BBQ House in the Food Court by jumping on vending machines and the like so are very hard to get without risking life and limb.

You can get a Pitchfork or two by going to the Food Court and looking for a store called the BBQ Shack. Other ones will spawn into some of the mall locations but these are usually a bit tougher to find although one notable one is in the Palisades Mall. This is found by going to the southwest part of the mall, near the escalators. It’s sticking in the dirt of a large plant.

Descriptions of Weapons:
The Augur is an absolute beast when it comes to tearing through the zombie hordes. Every swing of this thing will tear down every zombie in its path, cutting through them in almost laughably short order. Unfortunately when it comes to the faster gas zombies, Looters or psychopaths the weapon is either too slow or it doesn’t deal enough damage to actually be of much use. If you could stash it in your inventory then it’d be a great thing to keep on hand but it can’t so its use is limited.

Notes: Good for clearing crowds but little else.

Rating: 3/5


Beer Hat

Location of Card:
Acquired by leveling up somewhere between levels 20 - 30

Location of Components:
For this one you’re going to need a construction hat and a bottle of beer.

The Construction Hat can be found by going to the South Plaza, pretty much the only place in the entire of Fortune City where apparently you can find these things. Look around on the floor or on top of boxes and the shelves here to find one of these.

Beer can be found all over Fortune City but most notably in any of the bar areas. A good supply of liquor and beer can be found in the Food Court although searching around the adult areas labeled Drink is still your best bet. Amusingly enough you can find a whole lot of beer by going to the construction area in the South Plaza. Guess those construction guys weren’t working a whole lot.

Descriptions of Item:
The Beer Hat is probably one of the best combo items in the game. It is one of the few healing items you can carry around that has multiple uses, taking up only one spot in the inventory at that. When used it restores two blocks of health making those ten uses all the more valuable. Unfortunately its main drawback is that if used too many times in a short time Chuck will end up vomiting, much like drinking too many individual alcohol items would. This is a serious drawback since it means that it cannot be your only healing item on hand but it doesn’t entirely devalue its usefulness. Also since books don’t increase its effectiveness this too hinders its effectiveness a bit.

Notes: A very helpful and reliable item.

Rating: 3/5



Location of Card:
In the Food Court you will find the Cucina Donnacci Italian Restaurant. Look nearby for a poster for the movie “Revenginator 7” to acquire this.

Location of Components:
As the name implies this is comprised of a Bow and Arrow combined with Dynamite.

To get a Bow and Arrow make your way to the Food Court between the Yucatan Casino and Slot Ranch Casino. Climb on top of the Hamburger Fiefdom to find this there. You can also find two bows by going into The Chieftains Hut, located in Royal Flush Plaza.

Dynamite is acquired by going to Royal Flush Plaza and make your way to the Fortune Plaza exit. Just before the exit doors are some trees near the stairs that go up to the second level. Go up, jump onto the palm tree and pick up the two pieces. They can also be found inside some of the maintenance rooms although this is uncommon, notably being present in the maintenance room on the second floor of Palisades Mall.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Now this is one hell of a weapon. The Blambow is kind of like a rocket launcher in bow form. You fire an arrow, it sticks in a target and then blows everything in the area the hell up. Any zombies that are in the zone of this explosion are basically blown to pieces so you can guarantee that it’s going to clear a crowd. Plus, unlike the Rocket Launcher, it can be stashed in your inventory which means that a high level Chuck can carry around a bunch of them with him. Even better than that is the fact that each arrow fired from this will stun any psychopath in its radius meaning repeated arrows will stun enemies constantly and stop them from fighting back.

Notes: Great in most every situation except tight quarters.

Rating: 4/5


Blazing Aces

Location of Card:
During day 3 you will have the ability to speak to some men from Tape It or Die. 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 one you’re going to need a Tiki Torch and a Tennis Raquet.

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.

Tennis Racquet can be picked up from sporting good stores, like KokoNutz, but are also occasionally found lying around. Check around the lounge areas of the mall, often where there are couches, to find one of these lying around.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Taping a Tiki Torch to a Tennis Raquet to create a flaming raquet and then batting gasoline soaked balls at enemies? Genius! Actually using this beast in combat? Yeah, not so much. While it is rather impressive to watch the balls bouncing around and set zombies on fire left and right it’s not really all that effective. If you’d like to rack up a bunch of kills with it find some large groups and bat a bunch of balls into their midst to set the whole lot of them on fire.

Notes: Dangerous but more of a novelty

Rating: 2/5

    *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.
  • scarcie0018 - December 16, 2010 4:11 p.m.

    well i only need like 3 cards but thanks geeza... they should be where u said they are right???? hahah jus messin safe.
  • misfit119 - October 20, 2010 7:32 a.m.

    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.

  • Ninja-Monkey-91 - October 10, 2010 4:48 p.m.

    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.
  • 1zombielion - October 10, 2010 5:01 a.m.

    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.
  • kyle94 - October 10, 2010 4:48 a.m.

    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.
