The Bomb is a one-time use explosive item. It damages certain items within its radius. Other items are impervious to its effects.

Bombs can be crafted or purchased from the Dwarf for Gold.png600g. Bats, Lava Crabs, Squid Kids, and Serpents also drop bombs when slain.


Note that the following is not an exhaustive list:

  • Rocks and ore/gem nodes will drop their respective ores, gems, etc.
    • Ore nodes in the Quarry will be destroyed, and will not drop ore.
    • Gem nodes in the Quarry are impervious to a bomb's effects.
  • Mushrooms and foraged minerals will be destroyed.
  • Any untilled dirt tiles or Artifact Spots within a significantly smaller radius will become tilled, dropping any items (e.g., clay, artifacts) at the same rate as a player using a hoe.
  • Crafted artisan and refining equipment will be destroyed.
  • Heaters will be destroyed.
  • Auto-Grabbers will not be destroyed, whether empty or containing items.
  • Trees will be destroyed when their health reaches zero (this may require more than one bomb). Trees will drop wood, sap, and any seeds they contained.


The Bomb has a radius of 5 (diameter of 11).


Villager Reactions


When you place a bomb and leave the screen it was placed on, the charging/fuse sound effect will be played whilst you are in that area. There is no way to remove the sound effect apart from reloading the game. (This has only been confirmed to happen on the Nintendo Switch and PC)
