TNT Stick

“A real nasty bunch o' TNT Sticks have escaped from their box and are threatenin' to blow up my mine.”
Bullion Bill, Banjo-Tooie

TNT Sticks, also known as Bangsticks,[1] are an enemy in Banjo-Tooie.


TNT Sticks are large bundles of hopping dynamite sticks encountered only in the Ordnance Storage of Glitter Gulch Mine. Each bundle of TNT Sticks has a black strap wrapped around it, with a gold countdown timer in the middle. TNT Sticks have their own icon, which is shown throughout the Ordnance Storage challenge, but they have no lines in the game.

When Banjo and Kazooie approach the Ordnance Storage, Bullion Bill asks for their help in getting rid of some TNT Sticks, which escaped from a box and are threatening to blow up the Ordnance Storage. When the duo enter the Ordnance Storage, their goal is to defeat 15 TNT Sticks within a time limit. They cannot be defeated by eggs, as this causes the TNT Stick to explode and blow up the Ordnance Storage. Kazooie can safely defeat a TNT Stick by defusing them with her Beak Bayonet attack. When she defeats the first TNT Stick from this attack, the 200-second countdown timer starts. When all 15 TNT Sticks are defused, Banjo and Kazooie are rewarded with a Jiggy.

If the Ordnance Storage blows up, Banjo and Kazooie safely walk out. By doing so, Bullion Bill informs them that another pack of TNT Sticks escaped, giving Banjo and Kazooie another chance at the challenge.
