The Paint Can is a weapon in Dead Rising.

It can be found in the warehouse, the North Plaza, and most of the other hardware stores in the mall.

When Frank throws the paint can at a zombie (Hold Tright and press X), it explodes in vibrate teal, killing the zombie, but occasionally making it blind for a few seconds, as if it had a bucket or mask on its head.

It leaves a trail of paint behind that zombies may slip and fall on.


  • The only color of paint is teal.
  • Taking a picture of a zombie blinded because of paint gives Frank an outtake bonus.
  • The Special Forces are merely stunned temporarily when hit by the paint can.
