The Paint Can is a weapon in Dead Rising.

It can be found in the warehouse, the North Plaza, and most of the other hardware stores in the mall.

It leaves a trail of paint behind that zombies may slip and fall on.

Attacks Edit

  • Primary: Tap the 360 X button button to swing the paint can.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Righttrigger trigger to go into aim mode then press the 360 X button button to throw the paint can. Doing this will cause the paint can to explode in a vibrant teal, making it blind for a few seconds, if it doesn't outright kill it.


  • The only color of paint is teal.
  • Taking a picture of a zombie blinded because of paint gives Frank an outtake bonus.
  • The Special Forces are merely stunned temporarily when hit by the paint can.
