The sledgehammer is a weapon in Dead Rising, found in several hardware stores such as Crislip's Home Saloon and McHandy's Hardware, in addition to the Warehouse and Maintenance Tunnels.

AttacksEdit

  • Primary: Tap the 360 X button button to perform a powerful skull cracking vertical smash. This attack is capable of instantly killing a zombie or a survivor by crushing their head.
  • Secondary: Make a wide arc horizontal swing by holding the attack key X. This attack is also capable of instantly killing a zombie or a survivor by crushing their head, although the target must be kneeling or at a lower elevation than the player.

If used correctly, the sledgehammer is extremely deadly, but can take a while to master.

TriviaEdit

  • The official guide has this weapon as one word.[1]
  • This weapon appears in Tatsunoko vs Capcom from time to time during one of Frank's attacks, during which he strikes his opponent with a random item.
  • The attacks for the sledgehammer are switched from Dead Rising to Dead Rising 2. In Dead Rising, tapping 360 X button will make frank swing downward, whereas in Dead Rising 2 you must HOLD 360 X button.
