A great way to blow stuff up. Be careful where you throw them!


Bombs are throwable weapons that cause an explosive blast. They detonate 5 seconds after being thrown, or upon making contact with a monster. Bomb explosions cause indiscriminate damage, dealing 40 base damage (adjusted according to the offensive power of the thrower, and reduced by the defense rating of each victim) to all players, NPCs, monsters, and vehicles caught within approximately 4 blocks of the detonation point.

Foreground blocks caught within a 4 block radius of the detonation point are dealt 28 block damage (140 block DPS multiplied by 0.2 second "fire time"), which is sufficient to destroy any material except Brains or Dead Core. However, blocks that contain a strong material as well as a strong matmod (e.g., Ore) may survive a single bomb explosion. Unlike blocks broken by mining tools, if a block is destroyed by an explosion, it does not drop its materials, but simply disappears. (Note, block damage is not affected by the offensive power of the thrower.)

Bombs can be found in containers on all kinds of planets in bundles of 3. They can also be bought from Frogg Merchants.

Bombs have a base power of 40 and a 0.4-second delay between consecutive throws with the same hand, producing a base one-handed DPS of 100.
