Its durability can be increased with the Domestic magazine.


Dead rising swordfish main
  • Main: Tap X/Square to stab a zombie with the nose of the swordfish, knocking it over. Two attacks of this type are usually required to kill a zombie.

Dead rising swordfish combo
  • Combo: Quickly tap X/Square again to perform a follow-up stab with the swordfish, this time higher.

Dead rising swordfish alternate
  • Alternate: Hold X/Square to impale a zombie on the swordfish's nose and then slam it into the ground. This attack kills zombies with one hit and awards the player 10 prestige points.


  • Like other weapons, when the swordfish is thrown, it will stick into a zombie and stay there until the zombie bleeds out and dies.
  • Chuck throws the swordfish in an identical manner to how he throws a spear.
  • The swordfish's alternate attack is very similar to the attacks of the lances the contestants use in the Master Shafter event in Terror is Reality.
