Dead rising Motor Oil  Dead Rising 2 Dead rising Motor Oil (Dead Rising 3)  Dead Rising 3 


The Motor Oil is a weapon in Dead Rising 2, Dead Rising 2: Case Zero and Dead Rising 2: Off the Record.

Motoroil can create:

  1. with Boxing Gloves to make Flaming Gloves
  2. Bull Skull to make the Burning Skull.
  3. Training Sword to make Infernal Arms.
  4. In Dead Rising 2: Off the Record, the Tennis Ball Launcher to create the Molten Cannon.

Hitting a zombie with Motor Oil or throwing the Motor Oil at the zombie will cause very minor damage, but if Chuck throws it on the ground it will create an oily space for a time. Zombies that step on it will slip and fall. This creates an effective barrier that zombies will struggle to cross but will not impede Chuck or survivors. It is very useful in alleyways and for short term restriction tactics.
