"My machines are hungry. Gather me some spare parts!"
Twisted Alice commanding Henry to collect the special gears, Bendy and the Ink Machine: Chapter 3

The special gear is a type of gear and an item from Chapter 3 of Bendy and the Ink Machine.


The special gear's design is very similar to the original gear but seems to be a lot smaller. From the middle is an O-shaped hole connected to two thin metal bars.


Bendy and the Ink Machine

Chapter 3: Rise and Fall

Henry can search for all five special gears to complete this task for Twisted Alice. All of the special gears are inside the gearboxes, located randomly around Level K. Their lids must be unlocked with the pipe wrench before obtaining the special gear. However, some gearboxes are missing a special gear after unlocking.

During this task, Piper is encountered using the special gear for his left arm and will drop it upon death.


  • Collecting all special gears unlocks the "Spare Parts" achievement.
  • There are few differences for the special gear's mechanics before update patch 1.3.1:
    • The special gear's location can be found randomly around the whole locations besides just Level K.
    • Henry needs to collect four special gears instead of five.
    • Piper does not carry the special gear during this task.
