Bangers are fast moving melee attackers who appear in Lockdown Palace in The Secret Armory of General Knoxx. They dress in black and white-striped prison garb, with the extra additions of a mask, goggles and a prison guard's hat.



Bangers charge into melee range wielding a crude club of metal pipe studded with numerous protruding bolts. They typically attack with a double swing pattern, pausing after the second attack. When hurt, bangers can flinch, letting their target get a short distance away or counterattack in melee. The melee attack employed by bangers also forces them to stop running, and can be avoided by retreating when the animation starts. As a result, it is not necessary to run away from a banger. A quick step back when they commence their attack keeps them out of striking range.

Like all other Prisoners, Bangers are unshielded, and are thus vulnerable to incendiary attacks.
