Liquid bombs are explosive items which either place or remove liquids instead of solid blocks when exploding. There are four different types of liquid bombs: Dry Bomb, Wet Bomb, Lava Bomb, and Honey Bomb.

When a liquid bomb is used, it will be tossed onto the ground and explode after a 3-second fuse, applying its special effect (see below). If, however, the bomb touches any liquid, it will immediately explode and apply its effects. All liquid bombs deal damage to nearby players, enemies, and critters.

Wet Bombs are obtainable by opening Obsidian or Hellstone Crates found by fishing in lava. If the player is carrying a Wet Bomb, the Demolitionist will sell Wet Bombs for 25 each. Purchasing more Wet Bombs will allow the player to craft the other variants (see below). The Demolitionist will also sell the three other types of bombs for the same price while the player is carrying them.

  • The Dry Bomb deletes all liquids in a small area when it explodes.
  • The Wet Bomb places water in a small area when it explodes.
  • The Lava Bomb places lava in a small area when it explodes.
  • The Honey Bomb places honey in a small area when it explodes.

Notes[]

  • Tossing any liquid bomb while already submerged in a liquid will cause it to explode instantly, damaging the player.
    • If the bomb spreads the same liquid that the player is submerged in, none will be placed or removed. If it spreads a different liquid, however, most of it will instantly solidify into Obsidian, Honey Block, or Crispy Honey Block depending on the combination.
  • In Hardmode, the Cyborg will sell Dry Rockets, used to craft (the rest of) a similar set of liquid rockets.

Tips[]

  • Players should always keep at least one of any liquid bomb in storage. If every existing liquid bomb in a world is used up, the player will need to fish up Obsidian/Hellstone Crates until they find another Wet Bomb.
  • To obtain all the bombs, there is no need to fish up Obsidian/Hellstone Crates until you have all variations. Once you obtain at least one liquid bomb of any variation (Dry/Honey/Lava/Wet), simply buy more from the Demolitionist and craft them into the desired variation, This is especially useful in crafting boss arenas as having at least one type of liquid bomb essentially allows infinite water/honey/lava (given that you have enough coins).

Trivia[]

  • The Wet Bomb, inconsistently, is not named "Water Bomb", even though its counterparts share the name of the liquids they spread.
