—Combo Card Description

The Lightning Gun is a combo weapon found in Dead Rising 2: Case West and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

It is made by combining a Blast Frequency Gun and an Electric Prod and can be further combined with a Laser Sword to make the Laser Gun.

Unlike most ranged weapons, the Lightning Gun has a unique heavy attack that only Chuck can use. It is activated when the player holds the fire button while aiming at a target. Said attack will electrocute multiple enemies at once, provided that they form a relatively straight line and are in close proximity to each other. It also uses up only one shot of the weapon; the same amount used up when simply tapping the fire button. These makes the heavy attack extremely useful when clearing a horde of zombies in tight hallways and paths, as it can kill multiple zombies with one shot.

In Dead Rising 2: Case West, the combo card is obtained by Chuck after leveling up, but it can be created and utilized by Frank. In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, the combo card is obtained by leveling up.
