The spear is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record. It is a pole weapon with a wooden shaft and a pointed metal head.

Although its primary use is as a melee weapon, it can also be thrown at targets. When it is thrown, it will stick into zombies and they will then bleed to death—that is, if it doesn't kill them directly upon impact.

The most reliable place to obtain a spear is at The Chieftain's Hut in the Royal Flush Plaza.[1] One can be found near the back of the store, held by an Indian statue.

It can be combined with a power drill to create the Driller or with a leaf blower to create the Spear Launcher. Its durability can be increased with the Blades magazine.
