The paint can is a weapon in Willamette Parkview Mall. It can be found in the warehouse, the North Plaza, and most of the other hardware stores in the mall. When thrown at a zombies face, paint will splatter all over it. If you take a picture of this, it counts as an outtake. When thrown it will spill blue-green paint, leaving a trail of paint behind that zombies may slip and fall on. To throw the paint can, hold down the Righttrigger and press 360 X button.


The paint can appears in Dead Rising, although a different form of paint appears in Dead Rising 2 in the form of spray paint.[1]


  • When thrown, all the paint will spill out and the can can no longer be used.
  • The paint is always blue.



  • The Special Forces are not affected by the paint can's effect, but are merely stunned temporarily.
