    • The movement speed and damage increase applies when getting the item in singleplayer.

Notes[ | ]

  • Number 2 was not obtainable in single player until A Farewell to Arms.
  • If obtained on any other gungeoneers, it will travel with them into the past.
  • Cannot be dropped.
  • This item isn't required to unlock Finished Gun.
  • Number 2 can drop from Rainbow Chests in Rainbow Run.

Trivia[ | ]

  • UnusedSynergy Unused: Recessive Hero - If the player has Ancient Hero's Bandana, it causes an unknown effect. Removed because it contains a starting item.
  • The icon for this item seems to refer to the Anime "Afro Samurai" in which the titular hero wears a similar bandana (standing for "Number 2" as in the second highest ranked warrior) while in pursuit to reclaim his father's bandana which is that of the "Number 1".
  • Number 2 shares its sprite shape with Bloodied Scarf and Ancient Hero's Bandana.
  • The damage increase when a co-op partner is dead is 1% higher than the health scaling attributed to co-op mode, thus cancelling out its effects.
  • Ignoring temporary/conditional damage buffs such as those provided by Metronome, Cog of Battle or The Robot with Junk, this item boasts the highest damage buff in the game, surpassing Eyepatch by 6%.
