"Created a combo weapon. Introduce it to the nearest zombie!"
—"Needs More Chainsaw" achievement/trophy description

Combo weapons are weapons that are made from a combination of two weapons created in maintenance rooms in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

Chuck Greene can discover how to make combo weapons through the use of special construction recipes called combo cards that tell the player how to make certain combo weapons. These cards can be obtained by examining various fixtures around Fortune City, rescuing survivors, defeating psychopaths, and by purchasing with money. Some combo weapons can be purchased from pawnshops and from other survivors.

Combo weapons can also be created by trial and error. When a combo weapon is created without first identifying a combo card, a scratch card is obtained instead. This will record how the weapon is made. However, a combo weapon created without a combo card cannot perform its heavy attack and earns fewer PP from killing zombies.

In Dead Rising 2: Case West and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, Frank West returns to the action and he also gains the ability to make combo weapons. Frank even gains a few of his own unique combo cards which only he can master to full effect.

Combo bikesEdit

Combo bikes are vehicles that are made by combining a dirtbike with another weapon. These bikes can't be created unless the player completes the mission Meet the Contestants and unlocks the combo bay. Combo bikes do not require combo cards to earn full PP. They can only be made in Dead Rising 2 and Off the Record.

NotesEdit

  • None of the survivors will take any combo weapons from Chuck (aside from Frank in Case West).
  • If you are holding one ingredient for a combo weapon in hands and have the second ingredient in inventory or in the immediate vicinity, blinking halos would appear around their wrench symbols. Although, this only happens when you already have the Combo Card for the resulting weapon, which quite limits the usefulness of this feature.

TriviaEdit

  • Only two items are required to make a Combo Weapon, but sometimes the end result looks as it was made of more. For example, to make a Paddlesaw, a Paddle and a Chainsaw are used, but the finished weapon shows two Chainsaws attached to the Paddle.
  • Interestingly, while Chuck's animation when making a combo weapon shows him confident and quick with his hands in Dead Rising 2, Frank's animation in Off The Record shows him doubtful, slow, and clumsy (hurting his hand in the process). This may refer to the fact that Chuck is the one with actual handyman skills, or how Off The Record is non-canon.
  • The Rocket Launcher Motorcycle is the only combo bike in Dead Rising 2 that is made by combining a combo weapon with a bike.
  • The Blitzkrieg uses a combo weapon and regular weapon.
  • The Blitzkrieg and the Laser Gun were the first two super combo weapons in the Dead Rising series.
  • Magazines do not affect the durability of combo weapons.
