Dead Rising 2 Combo Card Weapon Guide


Location of Card:
Gotten by leveling up somewhere between levels 10 - 20

Location of Components:
For the Hacker you’re going to need a Flashlight and Computer Case.

The Flashlight is relatively easy to find especially as one of them can be found in the safe room just by looking around a bit. More of them can be found all over the city but if in doubt simply head back to Royal Flush Plaza and kill some Looters to get more of them.

Computer Cases are a bit trickier as they’re often just kind of scattered about. A reliable place to find them is inside of Wily Travels on the second floor of the Royal Flush Plaza. There are about five of them here so if you need any then this is the place to look. Others can be found scattered about the malls in any reception or office area.

Descriptions of Weapons:
The only purpose to the Hacker is to help make you money. You can’t use this to fight zombies or anything else; all it can do is hack machines to drop chunks of money. Use this on an ATM instead of smashing it to get $10,000 instead of $2,500. As the Palisades Mall southern maintenance room has the components to build this make the Hacker there and use it on the ATM machines in the area to make a decent chunk of change. This is very helpful early on in the game but its usefulness decreases later on in the game.

Notes: It’s not a weapon but a money maker.

Rating: Special


Hail Mary

Location of Card:
Gotten by leveling up somewhere between levels 15 – 30.

Location of Components:
This amusing little weapon is comprised of a Football combined with a Grenade.

Footballs are easily gotten by going to any sporting goods store such as KokoNutz in Palisades Mall as well as SporTrance in Royal Flush Plaza. Numerous others can be found in the grassy areas of Fortune Park.

Grenades are a bit harder to nab so check your best bet is to head to the High-Noon Shooting Range in Palisades Mall to find a few of them. Otherwise they can be found in some of the grassy areas of Fortune Park but that’s a pretty rare occasion.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Grenades are very powerful weapons except for the fact that they take too long to explode. The solution to this is to strap the already primed grenades to a football so that they detonate upon impact with your target. Genius! These are very strong weapons with a seriously drastic downside; namely the fact that each one of these takes its own inventory slot which makes carrying these around impractical. For perspective, in the space you would carry two of these in you can carry twenty Blambow shots.

Notes: Very helpful but too limited in use.

Rating: 3/5


Handy Chipper

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

Location of Components:
By combining a Wheelchair with a Lawnmower you get this fun diversion.

The Wheelchair is gotten pretty much only by searching around the various areas. It’s pretty easy to find them with a bit of searching 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.

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:
As amusing as these wheelchair weapons are they’re more or less useless in the grand scheme of things. This is better than the Electric Chair since it chews through zombies at an incredibly fast rate, killing a whole lot of them in rather short order. But if you’re going to make a weapon that you drive around to gather up PP then you might as well make a Blitzkrieg and just gun your way through the hordes.

Notes: Fun but kind of useless.

Rating: 1/5



Location of Card:
Gotten by leveling up somewhere between levels 10 – 20.

Location of Components:
One of the more interesting weapons in DR2, this requires that you have a Toy Helicopter and a Machete on hand.

Getting the Toy Helicopter is as simple as 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.

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:
Now this is a badass weapon if there ever was one. When Chuck lets this bad boy loose it makes a whole lot of noise, drawing in every zombie in the area. That’s where the machete on the helicopter comes in as any zombie that approaches too close will get its chest area sliced up if not losing its head immediately. As the icing on the cake it lasts a heck of a long time. This is a great tool if you’re fighting off a horde of zombies while trying to escort survivors or take out psychopaths.

Notes: Surprisingly useful weapon.

Rating: 5/5


Holy Arms

Location of Card:
Inside of the Atlantica Casino head to the south western corner to find a “Pit Viking” movie poster on the wall – examine this to get the card.

Location of Components:
Somehow or other someone thought it’d be a good idea to combine a Box of Nails with a Training Sword to make this.

Nails can be obtained from almost every maintenance room as well as scattered about the mall. They’re surprisingly easy to find with just a bit of looking although they are sometimes in the oddest places, such as in the dirt under the palm trees in Royal Flush Plaza.

The Training Sword is found in a few very specific locations, namely the backstage area of the Slot Ranch Casino and the Hamburger Fiefdom in the Food Court. There is also one in the maintenance room in the Atlantica Casino.

Descriptions of Weapons:
Holy? As in the holes the nails leave? Oh ye gods the puns, they burn! Regardless of the pain that the puns can potentially inflict this isn’t actually that damaging of a weapon. The multi-hit combo is actually wildly inaccurate and the shots aren’t even all that deadly when they do land. Often two or more hits are required to hit any enemies that weren’t impacted by a direct shot. The shield shots are the most dangerous parts of the Holy Arms combo attacks and are also some of the most inaccurate.

Notes: Useful but cumbersome.

    *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.
