In Devil May Cry 5, you’ll be able to make your favorite demon spawn have their own yippee ki yay moments with a new cowboy hat weapon.

The weapon was first announced over the weekend at a Devil May Cry 5 panel at the New York Comic-Con. It is officially known as the Faust Hat. There is no footage of Dante or anyone else actually using the hat, but it resembles a cowboy hat with eyes. Hey, that sounds kind of familiar, doesn’t it?

Donning the hat also automatically dons a scarf made up of red orbs, and its size seems to be determined by how many you currently have. The ensemble allows you to fire orbs from your hands. You can even throw the hat to take out enemies! However, this seems to give the enemy their own version of the hat, and if their attacks hit you, you’ll lose more red orbs than usual.

Some returning weapons were also shown off at the panel, such as the Cerberus weapon from Devil May Cry 3. A new feature that should allow players to take screenshots at any time during the game and control the camera relatively freely was also highlighted.

Devil May Cry 5 will be out on March 8, 2019, for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC.
