The foam hand is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

The foam hands are red in color with the Terror is Reality logo stamped on the palm, and they can be found in locations such as the stand near the Arena entrance on the Platinum Strip. The foam hand is extremely weak, dealing almost no damage.

Its durability can be increased with the Amusement, Games and Sports magazines.

  • The foam hand is one of only six weapons which can be affected by three magazines at the same time.[1]
  • It takes about 200 hits for a zombie to be killed with the foam hand.[2]



  1. These six weapons are: Baseball Bat, Donkey Lamp, Wacky Hammer, Foam Hand, Massager, and Electric Guitar. See Magazines#References for how this was determined.
  2. In items.txt, this item has the line AttackDamage0 = "0.5".
    An average zombie has around 100 hitpoints, therefore it would take ~200 hits for a foam hand to deal enough damage to kill a zombie.
