Trivia[]

  • The Reaper is one of the best and most lethal weapons in the game capable of killing anything short of Hazard Units faster than any other weapon, excluding the shotgun. This makes it the weapon of choice against some of the hardest enemies in the game such as the one and only psychopath, Harjit Singh.
  • It is possible that the Reaper is Frank's signature combo weapon, since like Chuck with the Paddlesaw, it was the first combo weapon that Frank appeared with.
  • Both the Reaper's name and appearance are a reference to the Grim Reaper, as the Grim Reaper is often portrayed wielding a scythe. The Reaper reappears as a super combo weapon in Dead Rising 3, named the Grim Reaper.
