Remote Detonator is an activated item.

Effect[edit | edit source]

  • Activating the Remote Detonator will cause all bombs you've placed to explode.
  • Bombs will no longer explode without usage of the detonator.
  • Gives 5 bombs when picked up. If picked up a second time in the same run, this effect will not be applied.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Remote Detonator gives you five bombs for the price of three (using the bombs on the Donation Machine to trade for coins) when bought at a shop, making its purchase a good value if the player is low on bombs.
  • Remote Detonator does not control the explosions of Troll Bombs and Mega Troll Bombs.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • Bobby-Bomb Bobby-BombCollectible Bobby-Bomb icon.pngGives Isaac 5 Bombs, and causes all dropped bombs to home towards the closest enemy.: Bombs placed will chase after the enemy, making it easier to deal massive amounts of damage to enemies.
  • 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.: Remote Detonator can be used to explode the fired bombs early, which can be useful against moving enemies.
  • Added in AfterbirthNo. 2 No. 2Collectible No. 2 icon.pngContinuously firing tears for several seconds causes Isaac to drop a Butt Bomb. Butt Bombs explode for 60 damage like normal bombs, but also deal 10 damage to all enemies in the room and daze them for a short period of time.: The bombs automatically dropped by No. 2 will not detonate on their own, greatly reducing the risk of accidental explosive self-damage.
  • Added in AfterbirthCurse of the Tower Curse of the TowerCollectible Curse of the Tower icon.pngCauses Isaac to spawn 6 troll bombs on the floor every time he gets hit, similar to the Anarchist Cookbook mechanic.: The Troll Bombs generated upon taking damage will not explode until the Remote Detonator is used, unlike normal Troll Bombs.

Interactions[edit | edit source]

  • Added in AfterbirthScatter Bombs Scatter BombsCollectible Scatter Bombs icon.pngAdds 5 bombs. Isaac's bombs explode into 2-4 tiny bombs.: Remote Detonator can be used on the original bomb, but not on the small bombs that are spawned.
