The Chainsaw is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero. A chainsaw (or chain saw) is a portable mechanical saw, powered by a two-stroke engine. It is used in tree felling and to harvest firewood.

This saw can be combined with:

  1. a paddle to make a paddlesaw, or
  2. with a Motorbike to make a Slicecycle.

The chainsaw is a heavy weapon and cannot be stored in the inventory, and injury will cause Chuck to drop it. Like the Cement Saw, Chuck can potentially injure zombies by bumping into them with the chainsaw's engine running.
