Dead Rising 2

The chainsaw is a weapon found in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. 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.Certain magazines will cause it to last longer.


  • Main: Tap 360 X button to swing the chainsaw from right to left in a parallel arc.
  • Combo: During the main attack, tap 360 X button to swing the chainsaw from left to right in a parallel arc.
  • Alternate Hold 360 X button and Chuck twirls around in a circle with the chainsaw.
