—Combo Card Description

The Hacker is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, made by combining a computer case with a flashlight. In Off the Record, it is renamed the Money Hacker.

This weapon can be used to hack ATMs and slot machines to make them eject more cash than usual, as well as shock zombies. The player can hack ATMs to retrieve $10,000 from each one, four times the normal amount of $2,500. The Hacker can hack about 6-8 ATMs before breaking if used sparingly.

This combo weapon has been described as:

"This is basically a makeshift Taser which can zap zombies at very close range. Limited battery life means you're only able to zap for so long."[1]

  • "Hacking" is a popular term for manipulating computer data. It's likely that the device was named for this, noting its ability to "hack" ATMs.
  • In the Off the Record PC game files, this weapon is called "ATMHacker" (ATM Hacker).
  • This weapon is a successor to the Stun Gun from Dead Rising.
  • Unlike in Dead Rising 2, Looters can use the hacker as a weapon in Off the Record.
  • In both versions of Dead Rising 2, Looters and Mercenaries are weak to the Hacker. A single zap will instantly kill either of them, although it takes a bit longer in the original Dead Rising 2.
