Funky's Store is a location run by Funky Kong in Donkey Kong 64, where he sells weapons and upgrades to the Kongs. The location is a wooden shack with a set of three large bananas on top. The music and atmosphere of Funky's Store is based on an army surplus store; the location even has a front sign reading "ARMORY". The Kongs can also visit Funky's Store to have their ammo supply replenished if it is below the maximum amount.

In the game's kiosk demo, the building exterior's sign reads "ARMOURY". Both the satellite and the satellite dish are absent from the roof.

Weapons[edit]

Each of the five Kongs can obtain a personal weapon from Funky's Store by taking their respective first visit. Funky sells a weapon to the active Kong if they pay three Banana Bunch Coins.

Upgrades[edit]

By default, every Kong's weapon only carries up to 50 ammo. They can purchase a few extra upgrades for their weapons later in their adventure. Although Funky Kong doesn't outright say so, the Ammo Belts also increase the Kongs' orange capacity.

Ammo Belt 1 3 Banana Bunch Coins Increases the maximum capacity of the Kongs' weapons to 100 ammo, and increases their orange capacity from 20 to 25. Frantic Factory
Homing Ammo 5 Banana Bunch Coins Allows the Kongs to use homing ammo, which causes their shots to home in on enemies. They can only carry ten at once[citation needed]. Fungi Forest
