The Utility Cart is a weapon in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2, Off the Record and Dead Rising 2: Case West. It is a two-wheeled hand vehicle designed for transporting materials, such as garbage.

Chuck moves faster when pushing the cart. In Case Zero, this cart is invincible.

In Dead Rising 2: Case Zero the utility cart can be used to complete the Zombie Genocider achievement to kill 1,000 zombies. In Case Zero, the utility cart is only available in Case 0-3: Broken Bike.

Running the cart into a curb or any other non-zombie obstacle will result in Chuck losing his grip on it, prompting the option to lift the cart above his head. The utility cart is easily tipped over, most commonly when Chuck travels from the road up to a sidewalk. When the utility cart is tipped over, it can be picked up. There is no melee attack available when it is picked up. Chuck can throw the utility cart, which makes the cart a powerful weapon which is able to kill with one hit the military zombie, the strongest zombie in Case Zero.

If the utility cart runs into an obstacle such as a wall of vehicle and is unable to progress further, move to the side of the cart and look for a "Dead rising attack icon PICKUP utility cart B" notice.
