The Paddlesaw is a combo weapon that can be built by Chuck Greene and Frank West. It is a double-ended kayak paddle with a chainsaw duct-taped to each end. It is made by combining a paddle and a chainsaw. It is a heavy weapon and cannot be stored in the player's inventory.
In an advertisement in the Official Xbox Magazine (October 2010 issue), the paddlesaw is shown with a different appearance; the chainsaws are dark blue and the paddle is wooden.
The Paddlesaw is a great weapon against the hunters, as you move and attack at the same time. At high speed and delivering high damage, you can even kill all the hunters without getting damaged.
According to the Making Of documentary, the Paddlesaw was one of the first combo weapons to be designed by the development team. It was also one of the first combo weapons ever shown, along with the Slicecycle.
When early gameplay footage was released it showed the Paddlesaw laying on the ground pre made, also the Blitzkrieg when you beat the demo.
It is shown on the North American and European covers of the case of Dead Rising 2.
It is one of the weapons Frank West can use in Ultimate Marvel vs Capcom 3.
Although the Paddlesaw shows two Chainsaws, only one Chainsaw is needed to create the Paddlesaw.
a good place to make it is the maintenance room right of the adult entertainment store, because not only does it have a paddle and chainsaw but is a short walking distance from the poster that gives the combo card.
