The Chainsaw is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. A chainsaw (or chain saw) is a portable mechanical saw, powered by a two-stroke engine. It is used in tree felling and to harvest firewood.

This saw can be combined with:

  1. a paddle to make a paddlesaw, or
  2. with a motorbike to make a slicecycle.

The chainsaw is a heavy weapon and cannot be stored in the inventory, and injury will cause Chuck to drop it. Like the Cement Saw, Chuck can potentially injure zombies by bumping into them with the chainsaw's engine running.

  • Like the Cement Saw, the Off the Record chainsaw is blue instead of Dead Rising 2's orange.
  • It could possibly be based off a Stihl brand chainsaw.
  • For an unknown reason, in the new version of Dead Rising 2 for the PS4 and Xbox One, they seem to include the Off the Record chainsaw. Even the cover art has the chainsaws looking like they do in Off the Record.
