Blazing Bazukas is the nineteenth level in Donkey Kong Country 3: Dixie Kong's Double Trouble! and the fourth level of Mekanos. The level takes place in a factory. Bazukas first appear in Blazing Bazukas, as the main and titular enemy. They shoot either barrels, Steel Kegs, or TNT Barrels at Dixie and Kiddy. To get across gaps, the Kongs are often required to bounce from barrels or Steel Barrels; in one part of the level, doing so is required to reach the DK Coin. The Kongs must avoid contact with the TNT Barrels, which injure them. Sometimes the Kongs must jump at a Switch Barrel to change the type of barrel that Bazuka fires.
Some Krimps appear in the level. Only one Buzz appears in the main level, guarding a Switch Barrel, but a few more appear in a Bonus Level. During the first half, the Kongs can go behind a Bazuka (or defeat it with a TNT Barrel) to enter an Animal Barrel to transform into Squitter the Spider. Squitter is required for reaching the first Bonus Level and the letter O by utilizing his web platforms. Squitter can shoot web projectiles at barrels fired by Bazukas to break them.
The level begins one simple barrel-shooting Bazuka that leads up to a barrel that will shoot the monkeys onto a rope, which has a DK Barrel to the far left. The Kongs should continue east, then they fall down, continue east, and defeat a Krimp. Continuing east, the apes must use the help of a Bazuka's barrels to cross a pit of lava. From here is the letter K and two shooting barrels. While in the second, the player must use good timing to decide when to grab onto the rope being hindered by a Bazuka and it's TNT Barrels. If the Kongs fall down, they will fall into lava. Going east, the Kongs will find a barrel that will shoot them up to a No Squitter Sign, which is odd, since Squitter is not found beforehand. Continuing west, there will be a TNT Barrel, which can be used to protect against a Bazuka attacking with the same weapon. Right behind the Bazuka the Kongs can turn into Squitter. Using Squitter, they can get the nearby letter O. Going west, there will be a barrel, that, if jumped into, will allow access to two platforms. On the one to the Left there is the Star Barrel.
If the apes go left after the Star Barrel, they will find a Buzz, which can be easily defeated with Squitter. The Buzz here is guarding a Switch Barrel. When the barrel is touched it will turn the TNT Barrels of a Bazuka found across a gap to the right into normal barrels. The monkeys should then go to this aforementioned Bazuka, and use it's barrels to jump across to the other side. With Squitter, this is not necessary. He can just fall down and walk to the right, make a web platform, and hop over the Bazuka. Past here is the No Squitter Sign, which will give the Kongs a bear coin. Continuing east, the monkeys will pass a Krimp, and then climb onto a rope on which they must jump over the TNT Barrels from a nearby Bazuka. Just above the Bazuka is a barrel which will shoot Dixie and Kiddy onto yet another Bazuka. This one also shoots TNT Barrels, and the Kongs must shoot past them to fall and find some Bananas. Continuing west, they will find the letter N and a barrel that will shot them up to a rope. They must go west on this rope to avoid a Bazuka, and, after falling down, find a DK Barrel and two Krimps. When they go east, they must shoot up to avoid two more Bazukas. After going east from the last Bazuka the fall down past a Bazuka and find two Krimps. Past these Kremlings is a bazuka that will lead to a barrel with the letter G and the final Bazuka in the level. Past here is the flagpole.
