—Combo Card Description

The Spear Launcher is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2, made by combining these two items:

a spear with a leaf blower. It is a leaf blower that shoots spears. It can also be used to impale a zombie and fire it away.

Melee impaling does not seem to damage the weapon, as it can kill at least 100 zombies and still be in good condition.[1]

This combo weapon has been described as:

"Your arm strength is pretty limited in "Dead Rising 2," at least early on. Why not let a leaf blower do the tossing for you? With the Spear Launcher, you can fire spears at long range with ease!"[2]
