The 2 x 4 (pronounced two-by-four) is a Dead Rising weapon. It is a large wooden plank, used for construction purposes. It is very effective against zombies, with a one hit kill, but it can only hit one zombie at a time. It is even more powerful when used in conjunction with the  Engineering Book.
It is commonly found around the
mall, especially at McHandy's Hardware in Al Fresca Plaza.
Primary: Tap the button to swing the 2" x 4". This attack can only hit one target per swing.
Thrown: Hold down the trigger to go into aim mode and press the button to throw the 2"x 4".
The 2" x 4" is the same as the lead pipe, except for the sound it makes when hitting something.
The board appears to be incorrectly labelled. The dimension of the height and width of the board are the same, most likely making it a 4" x 4"
Dead Rising:Items Guide, GameFAQs, March 23, 2008. Incorrectly states: "one hit during the day time, and a two hit kill at night" Only one hit is needed, day or night.
