Dead Rising Weapons

The Excavator is a weapon in Dead Rising.

The Excavator is similar to the chainsaw in that it is a two-handed weapon. When used, Frank stabs it into the nearest thing around. The zombie starts spinning and with that Frank is able to hit other enemies with the zombie that is spinning around on the Excavator's shaft.
