The Binocucom, or Binoc-U-Com,[1] is a device used by the Cooper Gang to communicate and for reconnaissance purposes. Sly Cooper's Binocucom is fitted with a camera which is useful for Bentley when planning missions.[2] Bentley's Binocucom can be used to fire his crossbow and put guards to sleep. Murray's Binocucom does not have any special uses but can be used as a pair of binoculars.[2][3]

It can be assumed that every member of the Cooper Gang has their own Binocucom, as well as Carmelita Fox, though Penelope's and Dimitri Lousteau's are never seen. In Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, The Guru can communicate with other gang members using his Moon Stone, similar to a Binocucom.[3] In Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, Sly allows his ancestors to use his Binocucom while they are out on missions.[4]

Description

The Binocucom can be opened by tapping L1Button or R1Button in Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, but in Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3 by clicking R3Button. Moving around is done with LStick, and zooming in and out is done by moving RStick.

In Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the Binocucom is again opened by clicking R3Button, but zooming is now on LStick and moving around is on RStick. It also now comes with a radar very similar to the radar seen in standard gameplay on the bottom-right of the screen.

  • Sly Cooper: Sly's Binocucom is blue with his symbol at the top. His can be used to take reconnaissance photos and capture ghosts.[5]
  • Bentley: Bentley's Binocucom is green with an aiming cursor in the center used for firing sleep darts. In Thieves in Time, Bentley's Binocucom has a picture of Penelope in the bottom-left corner. After completing Of Mice and Mechs, Bentley defaces the picture due to Penelope's betrayal.[4]
  • Murray: Murray's Binocucom is dark pink and has no other special functions. In Thieves in Time, Murray has a Guru keychain hanging at left side of the screen.[4]
  • The Guru: The Guru uses his Moon Stone as a Binocucom. When in use, the inside is a sphere with a dark purple background.[3]
  • The Panda King: The Panda King's Binocucom is crimson with a sniper rifle-like aiming cursor.[3]
  • Carmelita Fox: Carmelita's Binocucom is orange and, like Murray's, has no special functions.[4]

Trivia

  • The word "binocucom" was created by combining "binocular" and "com" (shorthand for communication), which coincides with its primary functions.
  • In Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus, you can move the heads of Sly, Bentley and Murray while they talk in the Binocucom screens by using LStick for Bentley/Murray and RStick for Sly.
  • In Sly Cooper and the Thievius Raccoonus you can get a move in a vault that was created by Bruce O'Coop that allows you to see the names of every guard and facts about them through the Binocucom.
  • In PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale, a Sony-made crossover brawler that features Sly as one of the twenty playable characters, Sly's level three super attack is taking recon photos of the other fighters.
  • In Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, despite the graphical re-design of most characters, the keychain of The Guru in Murray's Binocucom sticks to the original PS2 design from Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves.
  • The Panda King (Sly 3) and Carmelita (Thieves in Time) both have Binocucoms, but Bentley never uses them to tell them about their objectives.
