—Combo Card Description

The Auger is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, made by combining a drill motor and a pitchfork.

This combo weapon has been described as:

"Like a much larger version of the Driller. Imagine a pitchfork spinning at 100 RPM and imagine what sort of damage you could do if you stuck that in someone. Yikes."[1]

Dead rising Pitchfork
Found after finding a murder scene


  • Its heavy attack is similar to the attack of the Excavator from Dead Rising.
  • The weapon's name and base concept is a reference to the 1992 Sega CD game 'Night Trap'. The weapon in Night Trap is used by the vampiric Augers, those being the antagonists of the game. Night Trap was also (one of) the game(s) responsible for the ESRB. Fun fact for you.
