For the Dead Rising 2 weapon, see 2 x 4 (Dead Rising 2).

The 2 x 4 is a Dead Rising weapon. The 2" x 4" (pronounced two-by-four) is a large wooden plank. It is very effective against zombies, with a one hit kill, but it can only hit one zombie at a time.[1]

It is commonly found around the mall, especially at McHandy's Hardware in Al Fresca Plaza.

It is even more powerful when used in conjunction with the Engineering Book.


  • The 2" x 4" is the same as the Lead Pipe, except for the sound it makes when hitting something.
