Added in Afterbirth

Bomber Boy is a passive item added in Afterbirth.

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. Mega Mr. Mega
      Mr. Mega Icon.pngGives 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]

  • Bombing the Donation Machine will cause a greater than normal amount of coins to drop from the machine.
  • Bombing a blue or purple fireplace may cause it to drop multiple soul hearts.
    • Added in Afterbirth † This bug has been fixed.
