Dead Rising 2 Combo Card Weapon Guide


Location of Card:
Recieved by leveling up somewhere between levels 40 - 50

Location of Components:
The Blitzkrieg is gotten by combining a Light Machine Gun with an Electric Chair or a Merc Assault Rifle with an Electric Chair.

A Light Machine Gun can be gotten by purchasing it from Just in Time Payday Loans in the Royal Flush Plaza Moe’s Moenatorium from Fortune Plaza. One can also be found on top of the center structure in the Yucatan Casino right near the 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.

The Electric Chair is tricky to get since you have to make one to get it. This requires a Wheelchair and a Battery to assemble. To find the parts please consult the part of this guide that covers the Electric Chair.

Descriptions of Weapons
This is probably one of the most enjoyable weapons in the entire game. Chuck plops his butt into the wheelchair and can then ride around, blasting away at enemies with its dual machineguns. You have a good hundred or so bullets with each gun, totaling up to 200 shots. Since you’re riding around at a fair clip zombies have a fairly hard time hitting you and your guns tear through them like a hot knife through butter. Ride around, gunning down zombies as you go to rake in a whole lot of PP. be mindful not to waste ammo on anything but a large crowd.

Notes: This is a heck of a good time!

Rating: 5/5


Burning Skull

Location of Card:
Head over to the Silver Strip and look just outside One Little Duck Bingo to find the Fortune Whisperer machine. Put a total of $1,210,000 into the machine to get this card.

Location of Components:
Getting this is as simple as combining a Bull Skull and Motor Oil.

Bull Skulls can be found by going to the food court. There you simply need to head to the BBQ House and you can find several of the skulls attached to the walls outside of it.

Motor Oil is pretty easy to get a hold of it just requires some backwards logic. Make your way over to the BBQ House in the food court. There you can find one outside on the decking and another inside. Otherwise your best bet is to check the maintenance rooms for some.

Descriptions of Weapons:
You run around and head butt things to death with a flaming animal skull, what’s not to like? Sadly this thing is pretty slow to attack, has very low range and leaves you quite open to enemy reprisals. If you’ve got the combo card you can use the secondary attack to make it much more useful but it’s still going to be fairly hard to use this without getting whacked by zombies repeatedly.

Notes: An interesting weapon but too slow.

Rating: 2/5



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

Location of Components:
This beast of a weapon is comprised of a Sledgehammer and a Fire Axe, both easy to get weapons.

Sledgehammers are easily gotten from a rather accessible place – When leaving the safe house and walking past the maintenance room the next short hallway will have a sledgehammer right near a box. This is one of the most reliable places to find them although, as you can guess, they can be found scattered around the malls.

The Fire axe is as simple as going back to the safe room since there’s always one near the big sealed doors you came in through and another near the stairs going down. Others can be gotten from around the mall but there are very few places where you can just pick up two of them.

Descriptions of Weapons:
One would imagine that strapped a fire axe to a sledgehammer would create a monstrously powerful weapon. You would be quite right. The way this weapon works is as a somewhat sturdier version of the sledgehammer, taking wide swings that will splatter every zombie that it comes in contact with. It does a hell of a lot of damage to psychopaths as well… if you can actually freaking hit them with it. Since most every hit will stagger the psychopath you can do a lot of damage but most of them will use a melee attack to knock you down you ASAP making this a dubious method.

Notes: Deadly but far too slow.

Rating: 2/5



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

Location of Components:
The Driller is made of a Drill combined with a Spear.

You can find Drill’s in a number of places, notably there is one in the boiler room you come out of the safe room into. There are others scattered all over the mall, notably near many of the maintenance rooms. You should never have any problems finding them.

Getting a Spear is tough in that there are a very few of them spread around the city. The most reliable place to get one seems to be The Chieftain’s Hut in Royal Flush Plaza. They can also be found in some of the maintenance rooms but they’re pretty rare outside of the Chieftain’s Hut.

Descriptions of Weapons:
The Driller is a surprisingly powerful and dangerous weapon that makes rather short work of zombies and psychopaths alike. While most other piercing weapons don’t exactly tear apart zombies the driller can kill them rather fast, usually one or two hits depending on where it strikes. But more importantly than that is the way that this beast tears right through psychopaths. Due to how fast this weapon attacks you can stagger them before they get a chance to really fight back. Quickly move after the third hit in a row though or they might strike back.

Notes: A staggeringly good weapon.

Rating: 5/5



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

Location of Components:
For this you’ll want to combine some Dynamite with a Hunk of Meat

Dynamite is gotten 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.

You can get Hunks of Meat by taking them from zombies. These are the various hands and arms that zombies walk around chowing down on.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Whenever you throw a hunk of meat at the zombies it will distract them and cause them to stop to eat it. By sticking a lit piece of dynamite in that hunk of meat you get to make a fantastic party favor that will blow a whole group of zombies’ sky high. That’s about the only real purpose that this weapon has – clearing out groups of zombies. But unlike other explosive weapons this one is hard to use with survivors around since they will sometimes decide to go over and push a zombie near the explosive, taking a huge amount of damage from the explosion.

Notes: Only helpful when escorting survivors.

    *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.
  • 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.
