The flare is a weapon that was removed from the final version of Dead Rising 2 for unknown reasons. It is a small device that produces a bright flame.

Although Sullivan uses a flare in the The Facts to call down bombs, this flare has a different name, "SullivanFlare", and acts differently. Of all of the scrapped weapons, the flare is the most functional. All of its attack animations are available.


Dead rising flare main
  • Main: Tap X/Square to swipe the flare. Chuck will put the flare into a zombie's mouth. The flare is a bright red. The flare makes the zombie momentarily immobile and attracts other zombies to the flare zombie.
    After a few seconds, the flare disappears, and the zombie is free.


  • In the PC game file items.txt, the flare has the display name number of 50722, which is for the flare in the game text files.
