—Combo card description

The Blazing Aces is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is created by combining a tennis racquet with a tiki torch.

It is a tennis racquet with a longer handle that launches flaming tennis balls. The player receives the combo card after escorting Lance Williams to the Safe House during the unmarked mission Tape It or Die 2.

This combo weapon is described as:

"Dip a tennis ball in oil, set it on fire and serve like Pete Sampras. The flaming ball with bounce from zombie to zombie, setting crowds ablaze."[1]
