"Lob this towards a nearby zombie then stand back. It won't be able to contain its hunger!"
—Combo card description

The Dynameat is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is created by combining a hunk of meat with a stick of dynamite.

Similar to the hunk of meat, the Dynameat acts as a lure to attract nearby zombies, and will explode a few seconds after being used, making it useful for clearing out a group of zombies.

In Dead Rising 2, the Dynameat awards 1,000 PP per kill with the combo card, making it a good option for players who want to level up quickly.

This combo weapon is described as:

"Zombies are attracted to human flesh. Use this to your advantage! Toss a human hand with an added bonus into a crowd."[1]

Case West locations of weapons needed to make the Dynameat:[2]

Component Location Specific location and instructions Image
Hunk of Meat Holding Pens The hunk of meat is located in the Holding Pens in the pen located directly to the right of the "Laboratory East Exit" door. The player must kill a zombie in this pen for his hand to fall off. Random hunks of meat fall off zombies throughout the game, but this hunk of meat consistently falls off and it is very close to the home base. The player can locate this door by following the blue road out of the Loading Bay into the Holding Pens.
Dynamite Holding Pens The dynamite is found right beside the Holding Pens hunk of meat.
