—Combo Card Description

The Driller is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, made by combining a power drill with a spear.

This weapon is relatively fragile, but extremely effective against psychopaths thanks to its quickness.

Both pieces required to make a Driller can be found in the Royal Flush Plaza, in the maintenance room near the entrance. Power drills are next to the worktable, and the spear is just outside the red door.

This combo weapon has been described as:

"Take an ordinary power drill, but instead of a normal drill bit, stick a 3-foot-long spear into it. Pokey death!"[1]
