The pitchfork is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is an agricultural tool with a long handle and long, thin, widely separated pointed prongs used to lift and throw loose material, such as hay or leaves.

The pitchfork can be combined with a shotgun to create the Boomstick or with a drill motor to create the Auger. Its durability can be increased with the Building magazine.
