Dead Rising 2 Combo Card Weapon Guide

Electric Chair

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


Electric Rake

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


Fire Spitter

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.

    *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.

  • 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.
