First things first, Credit to Lord Maim and PowerPyx on making the checklist and an awesome trophy guide. You guys did great!
Credit to me for locations (I'm sure there are people who did this, but these locations are mine.)

Head Trauma (Bronze)
Use every type of melee weapon on a zombie.

This trophy can look scary, so I intend to give you the complete list and locations of every melee weapon.

Note that there ARE missable weapons, these are the Giant Pink Chainsaw, Katana, and Comedy Trophy.
Also note that you DO NOT HAVE TO KILL A ZOMBIE, just hit them with it.
Last note, using a weapon carries over playthroughs, so you can start a new game+ and that weapon will still be "used."

Okay, now the fun part. The weapons are alphabetized (thanks again to Lord Maim and PowerPyx for that) and I will write a short description of appearance and location. Use Ctrl+F to find weapons you need.
2x4 - A standard plank of wood, there are a bunch in the safe house and a whole bunch in the Hotel. Really common.

Acoustic Guitar - Another really common one, there is a Tunemakers in the Royal Flush where there are infinite spawning guitars.

Ad Board - A small sign that's dark in color, there are a few in the Royal Flush. Pretty common.

Amplifier - Also found in Tunemakers. See: Acoustic Guitar

Barstool - Self-explanatory, go hit a bar in any of the casinos. Really common.

Baseball Bat - This one is too easy to even describe. They are right outside the safe house, sittin' on the floor.

Basketball - Hit any of the sports stores to find these. They are usually against a wall and spawn infinitely.

Battery - Also really common, there's one in the maintenance room in the large rocks in Fortune Park. (Where you fight Leon)

Battle Axe - You can buy these from some pawn shops for $15,000, or you can go to Ted's Knicknackery in the Palisades. There are two in a glass case.

Bench - Everywhere, but they are different from Fancy Benches. Not a problem to find.

Bingo Ball Cage - There is ONE in the game. At One Little Duck Bingo in the silver strip (look for the Fortune Genie out front)

Bowie Knife - These are everywhere. Zombies can drop them as well. Not a problem item.

Bowling Ball - Kokonutz Sports Store in the Palisades has a bunch of these in one of the corners (upstairs I believe)

Boxing Gloves - There are sets in glass cases in the Royal Flush, just outside the Safe House hallway. Also abundant.

Brick - There are a bunch downstairs in the safe house. Just go past the room with Katey and down the stairs.

Broadsword - There are a bunch in the Americana Casino in glass cases on the walls, as well as one in Shanks and another in Ted's Knicknackery.

Broom Handle - A sneaky one this is. You have to use a push broom until it breaks, at which point it becomes a broom handle. You cannot just find this.

Bull Skull - Several in the food court on the outside walls of the western ranch-style restaurant.

Cactus Plant - Food court at the Mexican Food place.

Cardboard Box - Hundreds of these things. Easiest ones are in the safe house, just outside of Katey's room.

Cash Register - Too common to miss, these are found in almost every store.

Cement Saw - There are several of these in the Hotel. Not a real tough one to find.

Centurion Bust - These guys are kind of rare actually. They are only found in some clothing stores. Just look, they aren't hard to overlook.

Chainsaw - If you haven't used a chainsaw in Dead Rising 2, then you are fired. Found in the Silver Strip, Hotel, and there's one in a children's clothing store in the Royal Flush (Maybe the Palisades)

Chef's Knife - Any restaurant has these. (Easter Egg, the power attack performs a multi-stab similar to the one in the movie Psycho, along with suspenseful music.)

Coffee Pot - There's one in the mess hall in the safe house. Easy.

Comedy Trophy - MISSABLE! This can only be found in the Case Two's Company. This case opens up on Day 3. The trophy appears on the counter of the Excitorama in the Silver Strip. DO NOT MISS IT.

Computer Box - These things are everywhere as well. Not a big problem to find.

Construction Hat - The Hotel has a whole bunch of these. Just pick one up and beat a zombie with it.

Cooking Oil - Kind of hard to find, but the food court should have quite a few. You'll find one eventually.

Cooking Pot - The Cucini in the food court has these (The place where you fight Antoine).

Croupier Stick - The casinos have a lot of these. They are either at the craps tables or a zombie is holding em nearby. Either way, it's an easy find.

Crowbar - So many of these, there's no reason to even list location.

Cushioned Tall Chair - Ah the tall chairs... these are found in casinos at the slot machines. Each casino has different tall chairs, so make sure to get them all.

Donkey Lamp - There's one in the Mexican Food place in the Food Court.

Drill Motor - These aren't very common, but you will most likely come across one anyway. There's one in a maintenance room in the Hotel, I believe (feel free to correct me, I'm goin on memory here)

Fancy Tall Chair - Again, at the slots in the casinos.

Fire Axe - There's an easy one just outside of Katey's room, next to a fire extinguisher.

Flashlight - Find and kill looters. One looter is always carrying a flashlight.

Flower Pot - Very small by comparison to the other weapons, these are found on counters in some stores.

Foam Hand - Sports stores, and on the floor somewhere in the Royal Flush. Not hard to find.

Folding Chair - You can find one on your way to the Royal Flush from the Safe House. It's next to some garbage bags.

Football - The Palisades mall has a bunch, the Royal Flush has a bunch. Check Sports Stores.

Garbage Bag - See: Folding Chair. They're in the same place.

Giant Pink Chainsaw - MISSABLE! The Case Here Comes the Groom is the only time you can get this. Beat Randy Tugman, and the chainsaw is sitting next to his captive.

Gift Shop Lamp - It's a lava lamp and not hard to find. It's purple.

Gumball Machine - Most children's Toy Stores have these. Again, easy finds.

Handbag - Women's Clothing shops. Easy.

Hangar - Any Clothes Store. Really easy.

Highback Oak Chair - The most abundant of chairs, this is not even a trick to find.

Hockey Stick - This one is Satan's little buddy. This can ONLY be found in the sports store in the Palisades. Its upstairs right next to the skateboards. They are the same color so check extra-carefully.

Indoor Garbage Can - The cylindrical cans, these are everywhere.

Utility Cart - Royal Flush Plaza has one. There's a zombie pushing it around.

Vacuum Cleaner - Down some stairs in the Safe House. Go past Katey's Room's door and down the stairs, then turn around.

Velvet Bar - Casinos. May be attached to a stand. Easy find, they are bright red.

Water Cooler - To be honest, I didn't look for this one. I found it in the intro part of the game. It should be next to the green room in the Arena.

Wheelchair - Oh God. These are just about everywhere. Don't forget to make a Blitzkrieg if you haven't. That thing is epic. Wheelchair + Battery + Assault Rifle or LMG

Yellow Tall Chair - Casinos, in front of slots.

Well that's it! That's all 160 weapons that you need for the Head Trauma Trophy.

As an added bonus, you get a Hockey Mask item that looks similar to the one worn by Jason Voorhees.

REMEMBER this can be done in multiple playthroughs! Don't stress over it too much.

For the last time, thanks again to Lord Maim and PowerPyx for their awesome trophy roadmap and checklist. You guys are awesome!

Good Luck!
