This is the Ultimate Guide to Showdown Bandit, showing you walkthroughs, secrets, and EVERY costume unlockable ingame.
As the game has just come out, this guide is a work in progress. Not everything currently in the game will be here yet, so keep coming back later.
Outfits are, obviously, different outfits your bandit can wear. Here’s a list of the current outfits that we have found ingame. Not all details here may be accurate.
The default look for the Showdown Bandit. Unlocked by default.
Unlocking by completing the quest at the Crossroads, getting the key to Happy Mine, and then reading the note in the crossroads again.
Unlocked by beating Episode One
Unlocked by completing the “Kill 10 Araknits” Quest for the Undertaker
After beating the game, go all the way back to the beginning, in the room with the three posters. The last poster will be replaced with this.
Walking up to the poster unlocks the TheMeatly outfit.
In the room before where you first meet Penny, there is a puppet missing his head. Go back to the crossroads, and in this room near the crossroads, his head is in the left side of the room.
Once you’ve taken the head, return to the puppet and give him his head. He will open a door.
Pick up the golden “object” to the left and you will have unlocked the Bendy outfit.
——-Characters & Enemies——-
The Banker is this games checkpoint system. Talking to him will allow you to save your game progress. Incase you die, or leave the game, you will be taken back to the last Banker checkpoint you had saved at.
Doc Carver is this games healing station. Talking to him will let you repair your strings (health). Doing this is completely free, and does not cost any Bucks.
The Stringless are the basic enemy type of Showdown Bandit. They roam the halls, and chase after you when they see you, dealing one string of damage per hit.
The Faceless Bandit is an enemy in Showdown Bandit. Occasionally, a sound will appear while you’re in a room, and a few seconds later, the Faceless Bandit will appear, changing the screen to a greyscale filter. He will slowly chase the Showdown Bandit once seen, and is immune to the Cork Shot, and will kill you in a single hit. The only way to avoid the Faceless Bandit is to either leave the room, or wait for him to leave the room himself.
Here are the basic controls around the game. Left click your mouse on the floor to shoot an X there. Then, your character will walk towards that X. Click around the environment to move your character around. Interactable objects can be clicked on, as long as theres an icon above it. Right click to place a trap at your characters current location. This is unlocked later in the game, so don’t worry about it if you’re just starting.
Info for how to control the Cork Shot is right below.
The Cork Shot is a weapon that the Showdown Bandit gets early in the game. The player can use the cork shot at a Cork Shot pad (you’ll know it when you see it.) While on the Cork Shot Pad, you can shoot your cork shot. This is usually used to fire at bells and unlock new areas, but can also be used if you’re in a situation where an enemy is chasing you, and you just so happened to be close to a Cork Shot pad, letting you shoot the enemy, killing it (unless you shoot it at the Faceless Bandit, who is immune).
While on the Cork Shot pad, you can left click to shoot with the cork shot, or right click to exit the pad if you’re done.
Traps (or beartraps) are items the Showdown Bandit can use against enemies. Placing down a trap, and letting an enemy walk over it will instantly kill them.
Mine Madness is a mode unlocked after completing Episode 1 of Showdown Bandit. Clicking it on the main menu replays the Sparkblaster Mine segment of Episode 1. Riveting.
