The funny painting is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

The Funny Painting is only available during the mission Art Appreciation. The artist, Randolph Allen, is upset about his painting and wants Chuck to buy it for $3,000. It is one of the gifts Chuck can give to Katey.

  • Main: Tap X button/Square button to slam the painting over a zombie, encasing and incapacitating it. The zombie will aimlessly walk around in circles.


  • If a second painting is smashed over the zombie while it is trapped with the first painting, the second painting will be damaged and drop. The first painting will remain on the trapped zombie.
  • Hitting the zombie while the zombie is pinned will release the zombie from the painting - the zombie can then again attack the player.
  • Even though the art is carried like a heavy weapon, with two hands, it still fits in the player's inventory.
  • The funny painting is part of the following achievements:
  • In Off the Record, it is renamed "Depressing Painting". Taking a picture of the Depressing Painting will give a Horror bonus. Also, the item cannot be pocketed in the player's inventory in Off the Record while in Dead Rising 2 it could.
