Dead rising Acoustic Guitar on head
  • Alternate: Holding the Template:Xbutton and Chuck smashes the guitar over a zombie's head, making the zombie incapable of attacking Chuck, stumbling around in circles.

Like the large barrel the acoustic guitar is both a melee weapon to damage zombies, and a weapon to incapacitate zombies.


  • Chuck cannot place more than one guitar on a zombie at a time. When Chuck attempts to do so, the original guitar falls off, and the new guitar is placed on the zombie's head.
  • The Dead Rising 2 Prima Official Game Guide states that this weapon has "3 swing attacks, can also be slammed onto zombies, blinding them".
  • In the PC game file, items.txt there are two types of Acoustic Guitars.[1]
