Combo Weapons

Dead Rising 2 Weapons
For each weapon see Dead Rising 2 Weapons.

Combo weapons are Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero weapons that are created by combining two items with copious amounts of duct tape. They can only be created in Maintenance Rooms. Combo weapons can also be purchased from pawnshops such as Still Creek Pawnshop, Just in Time Payday Loans, or Moe's Maginations.

Combo Cards are most commonly acquired by leveling up, they identify how to make the weapon, unlock special more damaging attacks, and give Chuck more prestige points when killing zombies.

When a combo weapon is created without the combo card being unlocked, a scratch card is obtained instead. The scratch card will record how the weapon is made, but the special attacks and extra prestige points are not available.

  • If a weapon or item used in a combo weapon is blinking red and about to break, when Chuck creates the combo weapon the Combo weapon is fully functional and repaired.
Blue wrench items blink when Chuck has both items for a combo weapon
Tip icon.png
An easy way to see if Chuck has the items to make a combo weapon, is to scroll through his inventory and look for blinking items.

When Chuck has an item in his inventory which can create a combo weapon and he either:

  1. holds in his hand the second item which creates a combo weapon, or
  2. stands next to an item which creates a combo weapon,
  3. the first item is on the maintenance bench, and the second item is in its original location in the maintenance room

Both item's blue wrench icon will blink.

For example:

  1. Chuck stands next to the Bowie Knife and has two Boxing Gloves in his inventory, one in his hand, and one in his inventory. The wrench on all three will blink.
  2. Chuck holds a box of nails and a Baseball Bat and MMA gloves in his inventory, all three will blink.
But note, these item's icon wrenches do not blink if they are in his inventory only, and not in Chuck's hand.
