The large wrench is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

It is a large plumber's tool for pipe-fitting, used by Chuck Greene and Frank West for massive bludgeoning.

  • Main: Tap X button/Square button and Chuck does an overhead swing with both hands, above his head, and swings it down.

  • Alternate: Hold X button/Square button and Chuck does an overhead swing with one hand, stunning the zombie, then in a brief cutscene, side swings the wrench again, decapitating the zombie. This alternate attack delivers significantly more damage, killing the military zombie, the strongest zombie in Case Zero, in one strike.

  • There is no "small wrench" or simply "wrench".
  • In the PC game file items.txt, this weapon is called "WrenchLarge" (Wrench Large).
  • The large wrench is one of the only weapons in which the main attack is Chuck raising the weapon over his head and slamming down, and the alternate attack is a swing. Usually, weapons have the swing as the main attack and the overhead attack as the alternate, e.g. the large barrel.
