"A powerful bomb that freezes all zombies caught in the blast!"
—Combo card description

The Freezer Bomb 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 fire extinguisher with a stick of dynamite.

When thrown, it will explode after five seconds, killing zombies close by and freezing all zombies within the blast radius for a short time.

This combo weapon is described as:

"You can spray an extinguisher at a single zombie for a while and he will freeze in place. Or you could toss a Freezer Bomb into a crowd of zombies and you'll have a lovely still-life to look at. Until you smash them to pieces."[1]

Case West weapon component locations[]

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

Component Location Specific location and instructions Image
Dynamite Holding Pens The dynamite can be found right outside one of the maintenance rooms in the Holding Pens area. From inside the Storage Bay, go through the little door in the corner with the "Holding Pens" sign on top. Walk from that door entrance straight ahead until you see where "Catwalk Entrance" is painted on the wall. There is a maintenance room right beside that "Catwalk Entrance" text. In front of that maintenance room is three large green crates. Beside one of those crates is the dynamite.

Dead rising freezer bomb explosions (2).jpg
  • The Freezer Bomb explosion is different than the Dynameat explosion. The Freezer Bomb explosion is white instead of orange, the blast has a larger radius, with the white explosive particles traveling further along the ground, as the Freezer Bomb does not explode upwards as much as a Dynameat explosion.
  • This weapon is very useful if used with the Power Guitar, as the guitar will kill all frozen zombies around the player in a single blast.
  • The Freezer Bomb destroys any masks incapacitating a zombie and may freeze the formerly incapacitated zombie.
  • The items necessary to make this weapon can be found in the maintenance room behind the Angel Lust stage, and in the maintenance room in the underground next to the access ladder from the alleyway directly across from the Slot Ranch Casino on the Silver Strip.
