—Combo Card Description

The Air Horn is a Combo Weapon in Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, Dead Rising 2, and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is created by combining a pylon with any can of spray paint.

The Air Horn is a combo weapon that acts as a very loud horn (so loud that Chuck has to cover one ear when he uses it) that, when used for an extended amount of time against a crowd of zombies, will cause their heads to explode.[1] It has the appearance of a can of purple spray paint attached to a pylon. Using it on nearby zombies will disorient them, grabbing their ears in pain while prolonged exposure will cause their heads to explode. It can also can be used as a lure to attract zombies away from survivors. However, the actual effective killing range of the air horn is very limited.

The Air Horn is surprisingly effective against looters, killing them immediately.[Verification needed]
