Tape It Or Die blogger Johnny Pipes came up with the idea of the Blitzkrieg. This was during the Fortune City outbreak, while the four bloggers were hiding in the backroom of KokoNutz Sports Town. Kilpatrick writes:
"I've been busy myself. I've actually 1-up'd Wallace, and made two creations. I love friendly rivalries!"
"The first is pretty basic. I saw an abandoned wheelchair in one of the Casinos. Still in good condition. I looked around for an elderly person. (Fact: Most wheelchair users in [ Fortune City ] don't have disabilities, but rather old and lazy. And are usually guests trying to exploit the system. But hey, they're zombies now!) Didn't find any, so I took the chair. Then I found a couple of old assault rifles. Don't ask me where. You don't wanna know. Ha HA!"
"Did a bit of tinkering in the chair. Made it electric powered. Grabbed my guns, grabbed my tape, and voila! The Blitzkrieg!"[1]


  • The Blitzkrieg will periodically taunt zombies in an electronic voice, the "Fred" program.[Verification needed] This is most likely a reference to renowned physicist Stephen Hawking, who due to his paralysis has to get around in an electric wheelchair, and communicates with an electronic text-to-speech voice synthesizer that sounds much like "Fred".

  • In the demo of Dead Rising 2, killing three hundred zombies within ten minutes would reward the player with access to the Blitzkrieg (which was called a Wheelchair Tank at the time) as well as an extra two minutes on the timer. See Dead Rising 2 Beta for more details.
  • In the online advertisements for the game, it shows a regular wheelchair combining with the gun, whereas in the game, Chuck needs the Electric Chair to make the Blitzkrieg.[Verification needed]
  • The items.txt game file refers to this weapon as the WheelchairTank.
  • The Blitzkrieg cannot be picked up. It cannot be carried into a new area.
  • In Co-op, if Chuck uses all of the ammo and then allows his friend to operate the Blitzkrieg, it will have additional reserves of ammo. However, if Chuck tries to get back on it does not.
  • An easy way to make the Electric Chair portion of the Blitzkrieg is to enter the maintenance room located in the Americana Casino, which is near the entrance to the nearby Arena. Inside the maintenance room, there is a battery needed for making the weapon, and there is also a wheelchair just outside of the room (sometimes in the possession of a zombie). Once combined, the Electric Chair is made, which can further be combined to make the Blitzkrieg itself.
  • In Off the Record, a regular Assault Rifle can be used to create the Blitzkrieg in place of a Merc Assault Rifle.
  • The Blitzkrieg is the first combo weapon in the series that is made by combining a normal weapon with a combo weapon. This makes it technically the first 'Super Combo Weapon' in the series.
