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

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Anarchist Cookbook Anarchist Cookbook: Spawned bombs explode in a cross pattern, therefore covering a wider area.
  • Bob's Curse Bob's Curse: The range for poisoning nearby enemies is much bigger.
  • Butt Bombs Butt Bombs/No. 2 No. 2: Each explosion counts as an individual Butt Bomb, so this deals 90 damage per explosion to all enemies in the room.
  • Curse of the Tower Curse of the Tower: The troll bombs spawned by the effect of this item will explode in a large cross pattern, making them more likely to damage both enemies and Isaac.
  • Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Bomber Boy also affects the bombs fired by Dr. Fetus.
  • Glitter Bombs Glitter Bombs: Each explosion has a independent chance of generating a pickup to use.
  • Hot Bombs Hot Bombs: Creates fire in a shape of a cross.
  • Mr. Mega Mr. Mega: All explosions deal more damage, have a larger radius and will overlap each other more, potentially vastly increasing damage.
  • Pyromaniac Pyromaniac: Each bomb can restore multiple red hearts.
  • Sad Bombs Sad Bombs: Each of the nine explosions will have its own tear burst.
  • Scatter Bombs Scatter Bombs: Each of the smaller bombs explode in large cross-shaped blasts.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Epic Fetus Epic Fetus: Epic Fetus explosions are unaffected.
  • Added in Afterbirth † Locust of War Locust of War: Locust explosion damage is halved with no additional explosions.
  • Ipecac Ipecac: Ipecac explosions are unaffected.

Bugs[edit | edit source]

Bug Bug! Due to the extreme force of multiple simultaneous explosions, it is possible for Bomber Boy bombs (especially when combined with Mr. Mega) to propel Isaac into obstacles or over pits.

Ingame Footage[edit | edit source]
