The handgun is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising: Case Zero, and Dead Rising 2: Case West. The gun is not very powerful, but with well-placed shots, can take down zombies with ease.

It can take anywhere from 2-4 shots in the chest to eliminate one zombie, depending on stature of the target and precision of shots. As expected, a headshot kills a zombie immediately and it can take 5-7 shots in the limbs for a zombie to go down, again depending on the stature.

Zombie policemen can be found holding it throughout Fortune City and Still Creek.

TriviaEdit

  • In Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, there is a design error with Chuck's handgun-holding animation. His left hand thumb goes through the grip of the handgun.[Verification needed]
  • The handgun depicted in game is the pre-B CZ 75.
  • A review of guns from Dead Rising 2 rates the handgun:
Holding up to 30 rounds, this is a great weapon to pass on to survivors, while its effectiveness in the hands of the player themself is minimal.
Blind-firing the handgun makes it highly inaccurate, and apart from headshots, it takes up to four rounds to down a zombie.
The handgun can be found in many places, from zombified Security Guards to various shop counters, making it one of the most abundantly available firearms.
Unless a player intends to pass on this weapon to a survivor or for some quick shooting fun, the Handgun is one weapon that a player should not waste his inventory slot for.
It gets a weak 5/10.[3]
