Button Barrel Blast is the second construction site level. Its main feature Button Barrels, which otherwise only appear in Bonus Areas in some earlier levels. Donkey Kong and Diddy Kong must jump on the buttons to correctly aim a Barrel Cannon. This way, the Kongs can shoot up to a higher ledge. Sometimes, the Kongs can aim the Barrel Cannon into another direction to blast up into a Blast Barrel and access a Bonus Area; a floating banana hints to the location of a Bonus Level. Although it is one of the last levels, Button Barrel Blast only has a few types of enemies, including several Gnawties and some Armys. One Zingers appears in the first Bonus Area, and two Mincers appear in the second Bonus Area.
From the start of the level, the Kongs must cross a small gap and defeat a few Gnawties. After beating the enemies, they need to jump on the button nearby to slightly turn the barrel to the left of it. After the barrel points to the above Banana Bunches, they must shoot through it and get up to the higher ledge. Then, the Kongs should watch out for a few more Gnawties and then hit another button to change the position of the nearby barrel, which can blast them to the above DK Barrel. After that, they should travel east and defeat two Armies. When they are beat, the Kongs need to continue forward and cross a few abysses. Soon, they reach another Button Barrel. They must aim the barrel with the button next to it, and shoot to the letter K. After that, they land on a long platform, where they find the next Button Barrel. Once it is aimed to the right side, the Kongs must jump in it, and shoot to another Button Barrel. The barrel should already be pointing at the right angle, so they can simply hop into that and shoot to the next platform and hit the Continue Point.
Now halfway through the level, the Kongs needs to aim the next Button Barrel to the right and shoot to a small platform with it. Here, they must leap into a barrel that should already be aimed correctly, and blast another small platform. Here, they hit another Button Barrel and shoot towards the banana path. Here, they land on the next platform and defeat two Gnawties. Once they are beat, the Kongs need to hop into nearby barrels to the right and shoot over to another small platform. In this area, the Kongs must aim the next Button Barrel and shoot a long distance to the final platform. A portal leading out of the level is right above where they land.
