The lead pipe is a weapon in Dead Rising.

It is a length of metal piping used for construction purposes. It is fairly slow but deadly. Like the 2" x 4", it kills in one blow.

Its durability can be increased with the Engineering book.


  • Main: Tap the 360 X button button to swing the lead pipe.
  • Thrown: Hold down the Righttrigger trigger to go into aim mode, then press the 360 X button button to throw the lead pipe. If the lead pipe gets stuck in a zombie, blood will spill out the other end of the pipe, killing the zombie in a few seconds.

  • When thrown (Hold Tright and press X), the pipe occasionally acts like a spear, skewering the zombie and causing its blood to flow out from the pipe like a faucet. When the zombie dies, Frank gets an additional 30 PP.
