Multiplayer mode menu

The Multiplayer Mode is a game mode in Banjo-Tooie that can be accessed from the game's title screen. This mode allows two to four players connected to the same Nintendo 64 or Xbox console to play several mini-games from the main game together, competing for points. There are fourteen individual mini-games that can be played, each with their own set of rules and features. Players can choose to play a single mini-game, some of the games or all at once, with the player earning the most points throughout the games winning in the end. Choosing to play the games individually allows for more customization of rules.

Games[]

Shootout Games[]

Targitzan's Temple Shootout

3 players playing Targitzan's Temple Shootout

Several of the games in multiplayer mode repurpose the Breegull Blaster mini-games from the main game into multiplayer 'shootout battles'. These mini-games all work the same way, with the map changing depending on which game is selected. These games also contain their own customizable rules and multiple playable characters if selected to play individually. This game sees the players forced to find and shoot each other while collecting eggs to use as ammunition. All eggs in the base game are available to be collected, and are spread across the map. Each player starts with a specific amount of energy, being defeated if their health is depleted to zero by another player. Points can be earned by defeating other players, and lost by being defeated.
