Notes

  • This is one of three musical instrument-based weapons, with the others being war drums and the guitar sword.
  • Similar to the instrument weapons above, a playable death tambo was planned but is unused. The animation of playing it can still be found in the files.

Behind the scenes

The death tambo was designed by lead artist Nathan Purkeypile. He created it during an internal game jam as part of a series of the "instruments of death." When he shared the project with an audio director, the director recorded sound effects for the weapon on his own tambourine, and thus the death tambo made its way into the final game.[1]
