Gems are a weapon in Dead Rising.

Gems are found in jewelry stores and are thrown. Zombies comically slip and fall on gems. Photographing a zombie after they fall on the gems will result in an Outtake bonus.


  • Primary: Tap the 360 X button button automatically lock onto the nearest enemy and throw the gems.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Righttrigger trigger to go into aim mode then press the 360 X button button to manually throw the gems.

When the Throw stat is maxed out, the gems will also deal additional damage from headshots, instantly killing any zombie.
