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.
    • 15►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 and super special rocks can be accessed with a single bomb.
  • Bombing the Donation Machine will cause a greater than normal amount of coins to drop from the Donation Machine.
    • The total amount of dropped coins is still deducted from the Donation Machine, however.
  • Removed in Afterbirth † Bombing a Blue or Purple Fire Place may cause it to drop multiple Soul Hearts.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Bomber Boy also affects the bombs fired by Dr. Fetus.
  • 15►Mr. Mega Mr. Mega: 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.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

Seeds[edit | edit source]

Bugs[edit | edit source]
