For the Terror is Reality event, see Slicecycles.

The Slicecycle is a vehicle in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It can be crafted in the Combo Bay after the mission Meet the Contestants is completed, by combining a dirtbike with a chainsaw. A non-improvised version is used in the Terror is Reality event Slicecycles. The Slicecycle is used by psychopath Leon Bell, as well as Chuck Greene in Off the Record.

The Slicecycle is arguably the most dangerous weapon in the game, due to its superior strength and attack speed, with its durability. The Slicecycle is a simple design of a motorcycle and two chainsaws attached to the handlebars of the motorcycle. The bike can kill about 1000 zombies before breaking, unless the player crashes, in which case the possible kill count is lowered.

It is a standard motorcycle, with the useful addition of two chainsaw blades acting like wings on either side, slicing anything that the player drives into.[1]

Chuck can find a chainsaw on top of the stage in the Silver Strip or in the maintenance room beside Hot Excitorama.

In Dead Rising 2, after defeating the psychopath Leon Bell during the mission Meet the Contestants, Chuck acquires a key to Leon's Combo Bay and a green dirtbike.

In Off the Record, after defeating the psychopath Chuck Greene during the mission People Like Us, Frank also acquires a key to the Combo Bay and a green dirtbike.[2]

The dirtbike, located in the Combo Bay on the Silver Strip's north end, will respawn every time the player enters another area with a load screen.

Chuck is an ex-motocross racer and can modify motorbikes in a variety of ways.

Experiment with different combinations and ride in style!

The dirtbike is the only vehicle the player can customize with new paint jobs or modifications. The player cannot paint the Chopper or the Mercenary Bike.

The following is a list of every item that the player can combine with the bike:[3]

  • The official guide calls the Terror is Reality bike variant the "Slicecycle", and the combo bike variant the "Chain Saw Bike".[3]
  • According to Tape it or Die member Wallace Hertzog, the Terror is Reality Slicecycle is a "fully-modified IJIEK 772c Racing Bike (Second-Half 2004 Model), reverse-engineered to incorporate a low center of gravity (LCG) muffler design, a sixteen-valve, 4-stroke, DOHC engine, and, of course, a twin pair of chainsaws and 4 radial blades, attached to a separate engine located within the front fairing."[5]
  • Even though one chainsaw and a dirtbike is needed, the finished model has two chainsaws.
  • Using the Slicecycle is one of the ways to get the Z-Genocider 2: Genocide Harder and Zombie Genocide Master achievements.
