Dynamite   Dynamite (Dead Rising 3) 


DRW Dynamite is a weapon in Dead Rising 2. When thrown, it explodes. It can also be punched into the mouths of zombies like a hunk of meat causing them to explode along with anything close by.

Dynamite is found in a number of locations including some Maintenance Rooms. There are two on top of the trees inside Royal Flush Plaza next to the exit to Fortune Park. The letters TNT are written on dynamite, despite dynamite and TNT being two very different explosives.

There are also a number of Combo Weapons which incorporate dynamite as part of its design:

In front of the Children's Castle is a tall palm tree that extends up from Royal Flush Plaza’s first floor. Two sticks of dynamite rest atop the tree.
