For the DROD RPG element, see Bomb (RPG).

Bombs are immobile explosive devices. When struck with a weapon or lit by a fuse, a bomb will explode in a seven-tile-wide square around the bomb, killing and destroying almost everything in range. Bombs and fuses were introduced in Journey to Rooted Hold.

Behavior Edit


A room full of bombs (click to zoom)

When a lit fuse reaches a bomb or the bomb is hit with a weapon, it explodes in a three-tile radius around the bomb, producing an explosion. Bombs hit by explosions from any source will explode immediately.

Interactions Edit

See the interactions page for a list of all interactions for this element.
  • Bomb explosions can light fuses.
  • Briar can destroy bombs without blowing them up.
  • Bombs hold down pressure plates if they're placed on top of them.
  • Orbs (all 3 types) and seeding beacons block bomb explosions, but are activated if hit by them.
  • The caber blocks bomb explosions.

Trivia Edit

  • In DROD 5.0 clicking on a bomb will show all the tiles that will be actually hit by the explosion taking into account obstacles and explosions from chain reactions. Prior to DROD 5.0 clicking on a bomb would only show its explosion radius.
