The Chainsaw is a weapon in Dead Rising.

It is a portable mechanical saw used for construction or woodcutting purposes. It is a heavy weapon that cannot be stored in Frank's inventory. It is gasoline driven, so it has to be switched on first and runs out of gasoline quickly.


  • Start Up: Tap the 360 X button button to start up the chainsaw.
  • Stationary: The chainsaw is capable of damaging targets by simply coming into contact with them after it has started up.
  • Primary: Tap the 360 X button button while running to swing the chainsaw.
  • Secondary: Tap the 360 X button button while not moving to swing the chainsaw in a circle. This attack will give Frank PP with each attack.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Righttrigger trigger to go into aim mode and press the 360 X button button to throw the chainsaw.
