Remote Detonator is an activated item.

Effects[edit | edit source]

  • Activating the Remote Detonator will cause all bombs placed by Isaac to explode.
  • Bombs will no longer explode without the usage of the detonator.
  • Gives 5 bombs when picked up. If the item is 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 Megatroll Bombs.
  • Detonating a bomb while it is swallowed by chub or Carrion queen, will cause the game to crash.
  • If chub or Carrion queen try to swallow a remote bomb that is not detonated, they will immediately swallow it again and keep doing so until they are pushed away from the bomb. This effectively locks them in a stunned state for a varying length of time.

Synergies[edit | edit source]

  • 15►Bobby-Bomb Bobby-Bomb: Bombs placed will chase after the enemy, making it easier to do massive amounts of damage to enemies.
  • 15►Dr. Fetus Dr. Fetus: Remote Detonator can be used to detonate the fired bombs early, which can be useful against moving enemies.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►No. 2 No. 2: The bombs automatically dropped by No. 2 will not detonate on their own, greatly reducing the risk of accidental explosive self-damage.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►Curse of the Tower Curse of the Tower: 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 Afterbirth15►Car Battery Car Battery: No effect.
  • Added in Afterbirth15►Scatter Bombs Scatter Bombs: Remote Detonator can be used on the original bomb, but not on the small bombs that are spawned.
