For the Dead Rising 2 weapon, see Music Discs

DRW CDs is a weapon in Dead Rising. It is a optical compact disc used to store music.

They can be found at any media store in the mall. Every stack has 30 CDs stored in them. Frank throws them at zombies like gems. The difference is that Frank cannot attack multiple enemies with one shot.

When Frank is at high levels, CDs are capable of taking a zombie's head off.[Verification needed]


Primary: When the Template:Xbutton button is tapped, Frank will automatically throw a CD at the nearest zombie.
Thrown: The player can manually aim the throw by holding down the Template:Rtrigger and pressing Template:Xbutton.


  • The five pack of CDs in every store throughout the mall are the same.
  • Like books, CDs almost always drop on the back side unless bumped while they are dropping.
  • In the game the weapon action icon shows CDs plural, not CD, singular.
