The giant pink chainsaw is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

It is a much larger version of the regular chainsaw, carried by Randy Tugman. It can withstand more hits, has a longer reach, and is faster than its smaller counterpart. However, it is a heavy weapon, and cannot be stored in the player's inventory. It respawns inside the Swept Away wedding chapel after Randy Tugman is defeated.

  • The giant pink chainsaw is similar to the small chainsaw from Dead Rising, as both are unique chainsaws dropped by psychopaths.
  • This weapon is one of 7 weapons in which a player cannot have more than one. If a player is carrying this weapon, the weapon will not respawn anywhere, prohibiting the player from carrying another one. These weapons are: Magician Sword, Shopping Valuables, Giant Pink Chainsaw, Rocket Launcher (from World's Most Dangerous Trick), Six Shooter, and the LMG. All magazines also have this restriction.[2]
  • There seems to be a rare glitch that occurs when saving Danni and returning to the Safe House. If Chuck is carrying the chainsaw and it is still revving by the time you enter the Safe House, the chainsaw will re-rev automatically and will be activated in the Safe House, although Chuck cannot hurt or kill any survivors.[Verification needed]
  • In the PC file items.txt, the chainsaw that Randy carries is called "DeviantChainsaw" (Deviant Chainsaw). The chainsaw used by the player is called "GiantPinkChainsaw".
