The Gumball Machine is a weapon in Dead Rising 2 and Dead Rising 2: Case Zero.

When thrown (Hold Tright and press X) or broken, the gumball machine will spill gumballs, which disappear after 10 seconds. Zombies can trip and fall on the gumballs. Unlike cooking oil, milk, and vomit, zombies only fall once on gumballs.

  • In Dead Rising 2:Off the Record, Frank West may comment, "Ooh! A piece of candy!" when near a Gumball Machine. This is a reference to a running joke on the TV show, "Family Guy", in which actor James Woods is lured out of the woods by a trail of candy in a parody of the "Reese's Pieces" scene from "E.T.". The phrase, "Ooh! A piece of candy!" subsequesntly became a viral internet meme.[2]
  • In the PC game file, items.txt there are three colored gumballs (GumballMachine_debris) when the gumball machine breaks:
AlternateTextureName0= "data/models/weapons/gumball_red"
AlternateTextureName1= "data/models/weapons/gumball_blue"
AlternateTextureName2= "data/models/weapons/gumball_orange"
