The meat cleaver is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is a knife commonly used by butchers, chefs or cooks to slice meat.

The psychopath outfit gives the player the ability to hack a zombie's head off using the meat cleaver, by holding down the attack button. The same can be done with the machete, but has a different animation.
