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.
- 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.
