The acetylene tank is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

Acetylene is a colorless pungent-smelling hydrocarbon gas (C2H2), which burns with a bright flame that is used in welding. When found with the dolly, it bears a resemblance to the portable large propane tanks in Dead Rising. It can be found in locations where normal propane tanks are found. Zombies sometimes push the tank with a dolly.

When shot, the tank spins around, propelled by a gas leak caused by the valve breaking off and igniting. After a few seconds, it will explode. Caution should be used when shooting an acetylene tank, because the unpredictable flight path can cause the tank to come back at the player and explode, with the resulting explosion inflicting large amounts of damage. (See the gallery below.)

Its durability can be increased with the Building magazine.
