A TV (television) is a weapon in Dead Rising. This is a standard definition TV. It's a heavy and deadly weapon. There are also HDTV flat screen televisions.[1]

Due to its large size it cannot put into Frank's inventory, and it is difficult to attack with.


  • Primary: Press Template:Xbutton to swing the TV. Tap the Template:Xbutton button in succession to perform a four hit combo, with the third and fourth hit dealing additional damage.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Righttrigger and press Template:Xbutton to throw the TV. The bulkiness of the TV comes in handy, as it is capable of knocking over large crowds of zombies.
