The brick is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. One attack with this weapon can easily kill a zombie. However, the brick can also be used to swiftly take out human enemies, as one well-placed throw with the brick will instantly kill a looter, provided it hits them in the head.
