—Combo Card Description

The Defiler is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is made by combining a fire axe with a sledgehammer.

It can be made immediately after receiving access to the first maintenance room (via a scratch card combo) by taking a fire axe from the safe house, and by picking up a sledge hammer from around the corner from the Maintenance Room. It is before the doors to the mall.

This combo weapon has been described as:

"Imagine a bat with the head of an axe and the head of a sledgehammer both positioned on the business end. Smacking something with that is not going to leave much in the way of solids."[1]

AttacksEdit

  • Main: Tap X/Square to preform an upwards swing, killing zombies in one hit.
    • Combo: Quickly tap X/Square again to swing again horizontally to Chuck's right.
      • Combo 2: Quickly tap X/Square to swing a third time diagonally to Chuck's upper left.
  • Alternate: Hold X/Square to preform a quick horizontal swing, much like the sledgehammer.
    • Spin Attack: Keep holding X/Square to spin around rapidly with the Defiler, while slightly moving forward.
  • Alternate Combo: Quickly tap X/Square again to preform a second swing to the right.
  • Jump: Jump and tap X/Square to preform a downwards air attack, replacing the Jump Kick maneuver.
  • Thrown: Hold Ltrigger/L2 to go into aim mode, then tap X/Square or pull Righttrigger/R2 to throw the Defiler.

TriviaEdit

  • This weapon's secondary (combo card) attack is a reference to another Capcom game. In the Monster Hunter franchise, when the player's character uses a hammer-type weapon's fully charged attack whilst running, the character performs a spinning attack almost identical to the defiler's; spinning around with the weapon extended and moving forward slowly.
  • If timed correctly, the Defiler's unique overhead jump attack can be used to negate fall damage.
  • Despite being fashioned to look like a battle axe, the Defiler is still used as a hammer; albeit with a wider surface area which is used to impact more force.
  • Tape it or Die blogger Wallace Hertzog came up with the idea of the Defiler, according to fellow blogger Johnny Pipes. This was while the four bloggers were hiding in KokoNutz Sports Town after the Fortune City Outbreak:
"Wallace, bless his heart, is still all up-in-up. Trying to build the best weapon. It's so cute. He actually came up with something pretty good today. Simple, too. An axe and a sledgehammer. Put together. Makes sense if you think about it. Both axes and sledges only really face in two directions. Front and back. But what about the sides. Well, Wallace basically squigged the two together (that's a technical term). Now you have a four-directional zombie-whacker! Looks pretty good in action, too!"
"Only thing I don't like is the name. "The Defiler". Ech. Sounds like the pipe system on Waters Avenue back in Costa Mesa. That was defiled."
"But good work, Wally! Nicely done! Johnny Pipes is proud."[2]
