The 2" x 4" (pronounced two-by-four) is a weapon in Dead Rising. It is a large wooden plank used for construction purposes. It is very effective against zombies, but 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.

Its durability can be increased with the Engineering book.

Attacks[]

  • Primary: Tap the X button/Square button button to swing the 2" x 4". This attack can only hit one target per swing.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Right trigger/R2 trigger to go into aim mode, then tap the X button/Square button button to throw the 2" x 4".

Trivia[]

  • The 2" x 4" is the same as the Lead Pipe, except for the sound it makes when hitting something.
  • The board appears to be incorrectly labeled. The dimensions of the height and width of the board are the same, most likely making it a 4" x 4".
  • In the Italian version of Dead Rising, the weapon's name is translated to "Bastone di Legno," which actually means "wooden stick." The correct translation would be "Asse/Asse di Legno," which means "2" x 4"."
