The saw blade is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

They are razor-sharp metal circular-blade discs. Chuck hurls the saw blade like a discus, potentially bisecting any zombies caught in its flight-path. When thrown into crowds of zombies, the blade can continuously kill enemies for a good time after the first blow, ricocheting off of each zombie into another. The saw blade can kill up to a maximum of around 8 zombies if thrown into a large crowd.

It can be combined with a cement saw to create the Ripper or with a vaccum cleaner to create the Exsanguinator.

In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, it can be combined with a tennis ball launcher to create the Saw Launcher.

  • Main: Tap X/Square to hurl the saw blade in a quick overhand throw.


Case ZeroEdit

Dead Rising 2Edit


  • Unlike in Dead Rising, Chuck cannot use the saw blade as a melee weapon; instead, he throws the blade to bisect zombies.
  • The saw blade can be problematic to aim with, as it will travel in a random direction instead of continuing forward after hitting a zombie.
  • Greene's Hardware's flier lists the saw blade for sale for $22.59.
  • They are manufactured by the company "Century".
