Added in Afterbirth

Bomber Boy is a passive item added in The Binding of Isaac: 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. MegaCollectible 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]

  • 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.
  • Removed in Afterbirth † Bombing a blue or purple fireplace may cause it to drop multiple soul hearts.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Dr. Fetus Dr. FetusCollectible Dr. Fetus icon.pngTears 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. Mega Mr. MegaCollectible Mr. Mega icon.pngGives 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]

Respawns after ten seconds. / Bob's Brain Bob's BrainCollectible Bob's Brain icon.pngSpawns 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. / Added in Afterbirth †Locust of War Locust of WarTrinket Locust of War icon.pngUpon entering a room with enemies, spawns a Red Locust which detonates upon impact with enemies.: Explosion damage is halved with no additional explosions.
  • Epic Fetus Epic FetusCollectible Epic Fetus icon.pngIsaac's tears are replaced with guided missiles, like those used by the Doctor's Remote.: Epic Fetus explosions are unaffected.
