The Burning Bongos are a miscellaneous item for the Pyro. They replace the Pyro's napalm grenades with three small bongo drums as seen in Meet the Pyro. The Burning Bongos may only be seen in-game by users who are in Pyroland.
When equipped, players are able to see in Pyrovision: map textures are replaced with those of Pyroland, gibs and pickups are replaced with their counterparts from birthday mode and low-violence mode, other players' voices become high-pitched, and all players laugh when injured or killed.
