The baseball bat is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Case Zero, and Off the Record. A baseball bat is a smooth wooden club used in the sport of baseball to hit the ball after it is thrown by the pitcher.

It can be combined with a box of nails to make the Spiked Bat. Its durability can be increased by carrying the Amusement, Games or Sports magazines.

Dead rising 2 off the record chuck's default baseball bat animation
  • Frank's original baseball bat animation returns in Off the Record, in which he swings the bat in small circles before taking a large swing.
  • The baseball bat is one of only six weapons which can be affected by three magazines at the same time.[1]
  • It takes more than one standard hit to kill a zombie, but the force of the bat can knock several zombies out of your way, which can be the preferable option when the player is pressed for time.
  • The alternative attack can be used to dismember a zombie's head if they're on their knees.
  • The bat is carried by Elrod Bumpkins and Ray Teller.
  • One of the first six beta pictures, released in February of 2009, shows Chuck wielding a baseball bat.



  1. The six weapons are: Baseball Bat, Donkey Lamp, Wacky Hammer, Foam Hand, Massager, and Electric Guitar. See Magazines#References for how this was determined.
