The Exsanguinator is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is made by combining a vacuum cleaner with a saw blade. Its heavy form of attack is using the vacuum cleaner's suction to grip a zombie and tear it in half. The lower body falls to the floor while the upper body is pulled into the vacuum cleaner and ground to bits in the process. You are given the combo card by escorting the Tape it or Die team to the safe house.

It cannot be stored in the player's inventory, and it must be revved up like a chainsaw before use.


  • The word "exsanguinate" means "to bleed out", and the Exsanguinator makes zombies bleed heavily.
  • When creating the weapon, you use a single saw blade in one size. But when the weapon is completed, there will be saw blades of various sizes on it. This also occurs with the Ripper. Item multiplication of this nature is not uncommon when making combo weapons.
  • The Exsanguinator attacks in only one direction, and is dropped whenever the player is hit. For these reasons, it is a gruesome weapon, but its practical use is somewhat limited.
