The Mandalorian: Every Piece Of Din Djarin's Gear Explained

This article contains major spoilers for the first two seasons of The Mandalorian. Viewer discretion is advised.

It's no secret that Mandalorians are some of the fiercest warriors in the Star Wars universe. One such Mandalorian is Din Djarin (or "Mando" as he's often referred to), the main protagonist of the ongoing Disney+ series The Mandalorian. As a battle-hardened Mandalorian warrior, Djarin became a prominent member of the Bounty Hunters' Guild and quickly made a name for himself as one of the best hunters in the Outer Rim. That all changed, however, after he took a job from a member of an Imperial remnant faction (the show is set five years after the events of Return of the Jedi) who offered him a big reward for the acquisition of an asset on the planet Arvala-7. Djarin soon realized that this asset is a Force-sensitive child who belongs to the same species as Jedi Grand Master Yoda, and thus, the nickname "Baby Yoda" was born. Djarin took the Child to the Imperial remnant faction, but he soon regretted it and decided to rescue him. Together, they travel across the galaxy while also trying not to get killed along the way.

To protect both himself and the Child, Mando has a variety of weapons and tools at his disposal. Therefore, this article will take a closer look at the equipment that Din Djarin owns in The Mandalorian.


Mandalorian helmets have long been associated with the Star Wars creed, and Din Djarin's helmet is no exception. Just like with any other Mandalorian helmet, Djarin's features a T-shaped visor and entirely conceals his face. Furthermore, Djarin's tribe follows the Way of the Mandalore, a religion where members were not allowed to remove their helmets in public, or else they can't put them back on. The only time that Djarin took his helmet off in public was in the episode "Chapter 8: Redemption," when an explosion from an E-Web heavy repeating blaster cannon's power supply badly wounded him. IG-11, an IG-series assassin droid who was reprogrammed as a nurse droid, told Djarin that he was not a living thing, which allowed the reformed being to remove Djarin's helmet and treat his wounds with a bacta spray.

Mando's helmet also comes with a variety of perks, such as tracking heat signatures, long-range audio, and detecting recent footsteps left on the ground. These perks especially became useful when Djarin had to locate nearby individuals, whether they be bounties or simply those in need of Mando's assistance.


Din Djarin's Mandalorian armor not only looks cool, but it is also extremely durable. Just like with most other suits of Mandalorian armor, Djarin's is made out of a powerful metal alloy called beskar, which is known to withstand blaster fire and even the might of a lightsaber. Since Djarin's armor is badly damaged in the show's sophomore episode ("Chapter 2: The Child"), he brings the large payment of beskar from his mission on Arvala-7 to his tribe's Armorer, who ends up smelting it in order to craft a new cuirass. Instead of having a red-and-gray color scheme in the vein of the original armor, this new armor is metallic silver, similar to Djarin's helmet.

In "Chapter 8: Redemption," the Armorer announces the formation of Djarin's clan, Clan Mudhorn, which is made up of himself and the Child. To coincide with this formation, the Armorer inscribes the skull of the mudhorn on his right pauldron as his signet, which sets him apart from all the other Mandalorians in the galaxy.


Din Djarin's whipcord, located in his right vambrace, has helped him get out of many sticky situations.

In "Chapter 6: The Prisoner," for example, Djarin fights several New Republic security droids on a prison transport that he and several other mercenaries infiltrated in order to break out a prisoner on board. Throughout the fight, Mando uses the grappling hook to behead one droid and uses it again to bring another droid closer to the one that's being incinerated. Djarin later discovers that the prisoner they're rescuing is a Twi'lek man named Qin, who Djarin supposedly left behind on one of their missions together. After Qin is broken out of his jail cell, the other mercenaries betray Mando by locking him at that exact cell. Luckily, Djarin escapes after he tethers a security droid near his cell door and rips off one of its arms, which he uses to open his cell. 

Bottom line: The moral of this story is don't mess with Mando.


Din Djarin's dual flamethrowers have also come in handy during many difficult situations. In "Chapter 3: The Sin," Djarin takes down a number of stormtroopers to save the Child from an Imperial remnant compound, and during the rescue, he burns a stormtrooper alive, who audibly screams in pain and agony as his death is taking place. 

Like any weapon in Star Wars, however, the flamethrowers have their limits. When Djarin was surrounded by bounty hunters who all wanted the Child in "The Sin," he used one of his flamethrowers to drive them away, but it ran out of juice before long. 

It's also worth mentioning that not everything Djarin has tried to incinerate is flammable. For example, the Devaronian mercenary Burg is seemingly impervious to Djarin's flamethrower when the latter tries to use it during their close-quarters fight scene in "The Prisoner." As it turns out, Devaronian skin is quite flame-resistant.

Whistling birds

When Djarin returns to the hidden Mandalorian group in the sewers with his beskar payment in "The Sin," the Armorer offers to give him a mudhorn signet since that was the creature he killed during this mission. Djarin refuses, however, because he thinks that an "enemy" (the Child) helped him kill the mudhorn, so the Armorer uses the excess beskar to instead build him a weapon: whistling birds. 

These small guided munitions were placed in his left vambrace. When deployed, the projectiles flew through the air while making a whistling sound before striking their targets and killing them with a small explosion. The Armorer tells Djarin that these projectiles are rare, so he has mostly used them in tight spots. One example is later in "The Sin," when Djarin fires the whistling birds at the stormtroopers surrounding him.

Interestingly enough, Djarin is not the only Star Wars character to possess whistling birds. Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker: The Visual Dictionary states that a bounty hunter named Carib Diss wore a Mandalorian rocket gauntlet loaded with whistling birds on his right arm. How he obtained this gauntlet is still up in the air, however.


Grenades are not a unique weapon in the Star Wars universe, but they are still useful for Din Djarin. One time in The Mandalorian where grenades were especially helpful was in "Chapter 11: The Heiress" when Djarin, Bo-Katan Kryze, and two other Mandalorians infiltrated an Imperial Gozanti-class cruiser transporting weapons. 

In this episode, the four warriors try to take the ship's bridge but end up encountering a squad of stormtroopers armed with heavy repeating blasters, all while the ship's captain is attempting to crash the ship at Moff Gideon's behest. Therefore, Djarin quickly devises a plan to get him and the other Mandalorians to the bridge. He asks the other Mandalorians to cover him as he charges toward the remaining stormtroopers. After getting close enough, Djarin throws two grenades at the squad and blows them up. If Kryze didn't take Djarin on her mission, then it likely would not have gone as well as it did in this scenario.

Flash charge

Flash charges (or flash grenades, for that matter) aren't exactly commonplace in the Star Wars universe, but for Din Djarin, they were especially useful in "Chapter 5: The Gunslinger." This season 1 episode sees Mando help aspiring bounty hunter Toro Calican capture a wanted assassin named Fennec Shand in order to pay for ship repairs back at the Mos Eisley spaceport.

Early on in the episode, Djarin informs Calican in vivid detail of just what kind of bounty he's going up against: "Fennec Shand is an elite mercenary. She made her name killing for all the top crime syndicates, including the Hutts. If you go after her, you won't make it past sunrise." After they both discover, later in the episode, that Shand is using a faraway ridge as a makeshift sniper nest, Djarin and Calican use flash charges to blind Shand so that they can successfully apprehend her. Calican would later kill Shand and betray Mando. Fortunately, Djarin ends up killing Calican after blinding him with a flash charge when he least expected it.

Blaster pistol

A wise man once said, "Hokey religions and ancient weapons are no match for a blaster at your side." And even though Djarin knows next to nothing about the so-called "hokey religion" that he's looking for, he does almost always have a blaster at his side. While the show has never explained exactly how Mando got his hands on this average-looking blaster pistol a la Solo: A Star Wars Story, the Forgotten Weapons YouTube channel explains that this highly detailed prop gun was likely inspired by the 1894 Bergmann No. 1 semiautomatic pistol, with slight modifications.

Either way, Djarin demonstrates many times throughout The Mandalorian that he is very proficient with this handgun. In fact, the very first fight scene of the series shows Mando slice an unidentified Quarren trawler in half with a circular door after shooting the controls with his pistol. Although their backstories aren't exactly identical, Djarin is only a few more close-quarter fight scenes away from being the Star Wars equivalent of John Wick, and that's definitely far from a bad thing.

Amban phase-pulse blaster

While Boba Fett first used a variation of this weapon in the animated segment from the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special, the Amban phase-pulse blaster in The Mandalorian is arguably much more powerful than its animated counterpart. Throughout the course of the series, Din Djarin has used this sniper rifle to either incapacitate or, more often than not, disintegrate anyone who stood in his path. These enemies can be as small as a Jawa or as big as a Trandoshan, both of whom were killed in the same episode ("The Child"). Djarin has also used the blaster to tase a wide variety of intergalactic scum, such as stormtroopers and krayt dragons (more on that later).

Interestingly enough, Djarin isn't the only character in the show to use this weapon. In "Chapter 4: Sanctuary," former Rebel shock trooper Cara Dune uses the sniper rifle to prod an AT-ST into a man-made lake so that Mando can blow it up himself. Regardless of who possesses the rifle, there is no denying that it is one of more powerful tools in Din Djarin's arsenal.


Star Wars fans have often associated jetpacks with Mandalorian culture, yet Djarin did not receive his own until the final episode of The Mandalorian season 1. 

In "Redemption," the Armorer asked Mando if he has ever trained in the "Rising Phoenix," to which he promptly responds that he has. The Armorer then gives Mando a jetpack and sends him on his way to reunite the Child "with its own kind." That jetpack would fortunately come in handy later in the episode when Djarin uses it to disable an incoming TIE fighter that just so happened to be piloted by Moff Gideon. Djarin would also use the jetpack in the subsequent episode ("Chapter 9: The Marshal") when he flew out of the belly of a hungry krayt dragon, which just so happened to have just eaten a bantha that was laden with explosives. 

Even though we as viewers have yet to see Djarin training with a jetpack during his early days as a young Mandalorian foundling, the Djarin that we see in the present day uses it like a true Mandalorian warrior.
