The fire ax is a weapon in Dead Rising.

It is very powerful, but only lasts 25 hits and cannot knock out multiple zombies like the Baseball Bat. Its durability can be increased with the Criminal Biography book.

A headshot will instantly kill any zombie or survivor.

  • Thrown: Hold down the Righttrigger trigger to go into aim mode then press the 360 X button button to throw the fire ax.


  • Frank can use a fire ax in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
