Effects[edit | edit source]
- Grants 5 bombs.
- Causes bombs to explode in a large cross-shaped blast by adding two additional explosions in each cardinal direction.
- The damage for a single explosion is unchanged, but each successive explosion that hits the same enemy has its damage halved; for example, if 5 of the explosions hit the same enemy, the total damage is 60 + 30 + 15 + 7.5 + 3.75 = 116.25 instead of 60 * 5 = 300.
- Mr. MegaGives Isaac 5 bombs, and makes all dropped bombs larger, which have an increased blast radius and increased damage. changes the base damage to 110, with the same halving reductions as above.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- With Bomber Boy, bedrooms can be opened with a single bomb.
- Bombing the donation machine will cause a greater than normal amount of coins to drop from the machine.
- The total amount of dropped coins is still deduced from the machine, however.
- Bombing a blue or purple fireplace may cause it to drop multiple soul hearts.
Synergies[edit | edit source]
- Dr. FetusTears are replaced by bombs that benefit from bomb-enhancing effects and slide for a fixed time after being fired.: Bomber Boy also affects the bombs fired by Dr. Fetus.
- Mr. MegaGives Isaac 5 bombs, and makes all dropped bombs larger, which have an increased blast radius and increased damage.: All explosions deal more damage, have a larger radius and will overlap each other more, potentially vastly increasing damage. Caution should be exercised, as the explosions' increased radius make self-damage likely.
Interactions[edit | edit source]
- BBFSpawns a familiar that flies around the room like the Boom Fly and explodes on contact with an enemy. Respawns after ten seconds. / Bob's BrainSpawns a familiar that charges forward when shooting tears and explodes upon contact with an enemy, damaging and poisoning them. The familiar respawns after a few seconds. / Locust of WarUpon entering a room with enemies, spawns a Red Locust which detonates upon impact with enemies.: Explosion damage is halved with no additional explosions.
- Epic FetusIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Epic Fetus explosions are unaffected.
- IpecacReplaces tears with explosive and poisoning projectiles fired in an arc from the mouth.: Ipecac explosions are unaffected.
