The 2 x 4 (two-by-four) is a weapon found in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2: Case West, Dead Rising 2, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

It is a large piece of construction lumber used for construction purposes.

When using the 2" x 4", Chuck/Frank lifts the 2 x 4 over his head, and slams it down. There is no second attack for the weapon.

2" x 4"'s can be combined with a lawnmower to make a Porta Mower. 2" x 4"'s can also be found by breaking benches and pallets.
