Greatly increased ammo capacity.

This simple bandana, which once covered the brow of an ancient hero, still remembers the old ways. Its powers have weakened over the years, but should still suffice to provide you with near-infinite ammunition.

Ancient Hero's Bandana is a passive item.

Effects[ | ]

  • Quadruples maximum ammo.

Notes[ | ]

  • Synergy I need scissors! 61! - If the player also has Trank Gun, Trank Gun changes appearance, its rate of fire is decreased, damage and reload time are increased, and its bullets will inflict slow and stun.
  • Synergy What A Thrill - If the player also has Patriot, it has a chance to transmogrify enemies into snakes.
  • Has no effect on the Prize Pistol.
  • Will still quadruple maximum ammo during any character's Past as long as they do not switch weapons.
  • Guns obtained before bandana will only increase the maximum capacity, not the currently stored ammo.
  • If the player finds multiple bandanas, they will stack multiplicatively - two bandanas will grant 16x ammo.

Trivia[ | ]

  • "I need scissors! 61!" is a reference to Metal Gear Solid 2, near the end of the game the player receives a series of nonsense messages with this quote.
