The Air Horn is a combo weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero, made by combining these two items:

Dead rising Air Horn
[[Air HornTemplate:!Air Horn]]
Dead rising Pylon (Dead Rising 2)
[[Pylon (Dead Rising 2)Template:!Pylon]]
Dead rising Spray Paint
[[Spray PaintTemplate:!Pylon]]


The Air Horn is a combo weapon that acts as a really loud horn (so loud that Chuck has to cover one ear when he uses it) that, when used for an extended time against a crowd of zombies, will cause their heads to explode.[1] It can be made in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. It is a can of spray paint attached to a pylon. Using it on nearby zombies will disorient them, grabbing their ears in pain while prolonged exposure will cause their heads to explode. It can also can be used as a "lure" to attract zombies away from survivors. However, the actual effective killing range of the air horn is very limited.

The Air Horn is surprisingly effective against looters, killing them immediately.[Verification needed]
