"The ultimate 'Long Bomb'."
—Combo card description

The Hail Mary 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 football with a grenade.

It explodes upon making contact with the ground or a zombie. A good place to make one is east of the Fortune City Hotel in Fortune Park, where grenades, a football, and a maintenance room are all nearby. Infinite footballs and infinite grenades can also be found in the Palisades Mall, in KokoNutz Sports Town and High-Noon Shooting Range, respectively.
