Postal Wiki

"On Tuesday you will start the day with a Clipboard in your hands. Walk up to people and press fire to ask them to sign your petition. Be persistent! Some people may not sign it at first but may change their minds if you ask again. And again. Other people (even cops!) may attack you if you bother them too much! The Clipboard is always in your hands until you get enough names to complete the errand, at which point it is automatically put away. You cannot drop the clipboard and you will not lose it if you get sent to jail. When you press E to put away your weapons, you will end up holding the clipboard." — POSTAL 2 manual description

The Clipboard (more commonly known as the Petition) is a weapon in POSTAL 2.



The petition as seen in the Police Station

Primary fire asks people if they want to sign the petition. The goal of the petition is to "Make Whiney Congressmen Play Violent Video Games." At the start of Tuesday, the Postal Dude is given the item and is tasked with getting 8 more signatures from bystanders. If a civilian refuses, the Postal Dude can try 2 more times. The 3rd time will be a threatening retort/death threat, and can result in the citizen running away in terror to call the Police, retaliate themselves, or sign the petition. RWS Staff and most bystanders will usually agree on the first or second try. Terrorists will only sign on the third try. Some NPC groups, such as the police, will never sign the petition. After getting 8 signatures, the Postal Dude will put the Petition away, rendering it unavailable for the rest of the game. The petition cannot be dropped, but will be removed if the Dude is arrested.

In POSTAL 2 Complete, if the player is on the highest two difficulties, the petition mission is automatically skipped since every armed NPC will attack the Postal Dude instantly, and the Police Uniform does not exist in the Police Station. If the player is on Hestonworld or Insane-o difficulty, asking someone the third time will have them sign the petition, instead of making them panic.


  • According to the WeaponSkins.utx, there were supposed to be signatures visible on the clipboard for each time the petition was signed, but this was scrapped for unknown reasons. It is, however, featured in the POSTAL 4 iteration of the Clipboard.
  • Although apparently exclusive to the petition, the Officer McLovin' achievement can also be unlocked by asking a Lawman for change on Wednesday in Paradise Lost.
