Funky's Store, also called Funky's Armory,[1] is a location run by Funky Kong in Donkey Kong 64. Here, Funky 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" (spelled "ARMOURY" in the kiosk demo, which also does not have a satellite and satellite dish, unlike the retail version). The Kongs can also visit Funky's Store to have their ammo supply replenished if it is below the maximum amount.

Funky's Store appears in every level except Hideout Helm. In Jungle Japes, it is in the middle cliff of Central Area; in Angry Aztec, Funky's Store is in the Llama's Temple Area; in Frantic Factory, it is in the Testing Department; in Gloomy Galleon, Funky's Store is in the Shipwreck Area (behind the fifth Bananaport Pad and two extra broken ship pieces, above the sunken submarine); in Fungi Forest, it is in the Garden Area; in Crystal Caves, Funky's Store is in the Ice Castle Area, on the cliffside below Lanky Kong's Kasplat; and in Creepy Castle, Funky's Store is in the castle crypt.

Inventory[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:

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. The Ammo Belts also increase the Kongs' orange capacity, though this is not outright stated by Funky.

Upgrade Price Description Starting world
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. The maximum amount of homing ammo the Kongs can carry is equal to the maximum capacity of their normal ammo. Fungi Forest
Ammo Belt 2 5 Banana Bunch Coins Increases the maximum capacity of the Kongs' weapons to 200 ammo, and their orange capacity to 30. Crystal Caves
