Overview (cases/scoops) • BooksClothingFoodPsychopathsStoresSurvivorsWeapons

CDs is a weapon in Dead Rising. It is a optical compact disc used to store music.

They can be found at any media store in the mall. Every stack has 30 CDs stored in them. Frank throws them at zombies like gems. The difference is that Frank cannot attack multiple enemies with one shot.


  • Primary: Tap the 360 X button button to automatically throw a CD at the nearest zombie.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Righttrigger trigger to go into aim mode then press the 360 X button button to throw a CD.

When the Throw stat is maxed out, the CDs will also deal additional damage from headshots, instantly killing any zombie.

Paula Hopkins Mother CD

  • The five pack of CDs in every store throughout the mall are the same.
  • Like books, CDs almost always drop on the back side unless bumped while they are dropping.
  • In the game the weapon action icon shows CDs plural, not CD, singular.
  • When carrying the CD, the photo is of a Paula Hopkins CD entitled "Mother", which is the top of the five pack of CDs.
  • When Frank drops the CD, the CD showing is the CD on the bottom, which is Jimmy Ryan's CD entitled "Slide", unless the CD is bumped while dropping.
