The DRW Broom Handle is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. When the push broom is broken, the much more lethal broom handle is left behind.

The handle can be used like a spear, stabbing zombies in a melee attack, or lobbing the spear to impale one, leaving it to bleed to death from the wound.


Dead rising broom handle main
  • Main: Tap X to stab outwards, using the broom handle like a spear.

Dead rising broom handle combo
  • Combo: During the main attack tap X again.

Dead rising broom handle alternate
  • Alternate: Hold X and Chuck holds the broom handle in both hands along the shaft and push over zombies.


  • The broom handle is unique in that it is the only weapon that actually improves in effectiveness after breaking. The primary attack kills a zombie woman in one hit, whereas the secondary attack kills a zombie woman in three hits.
  • Dead Rising calls the broken Push Broom "Push Broom Handle" but Dead Rising 2 refers to the broken push broom simply as "broom handle".
  • Combining it with a machete will make it grow the head of the broom back.
