The Large Barrel is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero.


Dead rising large barrel main
  • Main: Tap X/Square to swing the Large Barrel. It deals moderate damage and is almost useless besides throwing it into a group of zombies.

Dead rising large barrel alternate
  • Alternate: Hold X/Square to trap the zombie in the barrel, the zombie will be incapable of attacking Chuck. It can be used as a pacifier weapon when using a power attack, smashing the barrel over a zombie's head and blocking it's use of its arms.
    Like the acoustic guitar this weapon is used as a melee weapon to damage zombies, and also a weapon to incapacitate zombies. Unlike other weapons which incapacitate zombies, making them stumble around in circles, the zombies in barrels will follow Chuck.
    Zombies which are knocked over fall out of the barrel, they will then stand up and attack Chuck again.


  • Hitting the barrel with a weapon like the spiked bat breaks open the two ends of the barrel.
