Dead Rising 2 Weapons

The Baseball Bat is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. It can be combined with a Box of Nails to create a Spiked Bat.


  • Primary: Tap Template:Xbutton to perform a quick horizontal swing.
  • Combo: Quickly tap Template:Xbutton again to perform a follow-up swing.
  • Secondary: Hold Template:Xbutton to wind up for a Home-Run swing. This attack kills zombies in one hit, and awards 25PP for doing so.


  • The Baseball Bat is one of only six weapons which can be effected by three magazines at the same time.[1]
  • It takes more than one standard hit to kill a zombie, but the force of the bat can knock several zombies out of your way, which can be the preferable option when Chuck is pressed for time.
  • The alternative attack can be used to dismember a zombie's head if they're on their knees.
  • It is held by Elrod Bumpkins and Ray Teller



  1. The six weapons are : Baseball Bat, Donkey Lamp, Wacky Hammer, Foam Hand, Massager, Electric Guitar. See Magazines#References for how this was determined.
