The bow and arrow is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It can be combined with a stick of dynamite to create the Blambow.

This weapon will kill a zombie with one hit to the head, but will take two to four shots to kill the zombie if the body or limbs are hit. The shot arrow will begin to fall slightly if it is shot at a target that is a great distance away. The "fall" of the arrow is the same for the Blambow as it is for the regular bow.
