The Bucket is a weapon in Dead Rising.

Frank places the bucket over the zombie's head. Like all weapons, Frank can also throw it (Hold Right trigger and press X button), but it does not do much damage. While not useful as a melee weapon, the bucket can help Frank score some PP, if he takes a photo of a zombie wearing it on its head.

The bucket is a very common weapon and is found in many places. Putting the bucket on a zombie's head will score Outtake points.


  • Primary: Tap the X button button to place the bucket on a zombies' head.
  • Secondary: Hold down the X button button to swing the bucket.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Right trigger trigger to go into aim mode then press the X button button to throw the bucket.
