The Bouncy Bomb is an explosive obtainable by crafting from a Bomb and a Pink Gel or, after a world's first solar eclipse, can be purchased from the demolitionist for 5 each, although the latter option seems to be unavailable on multiplayer servers. It bounces off surfaces before exploding. They can be used as a mining tool or a weapon, although generally the former. When used, it is thrown a few blocks away from the player. After 3 seconds, it will explode, inflicting 100 points of damage to nearby mobs (if it doesn't collide with them) and destroying multiple blocks around it. The player can also inflict harm to themselves if not careful.
Bombs can destroy almost any block, with some exceptions. It can also be thrown through one block thick walls, like some other tossables.
- Its sticky counterpart, the Sticky Bomb, can be easier to handle with and it's better for mining ores like Demonite, Crimtane, and Meteorite, as they require an expensive pickaxe to be mined.
- The Bouncy bomb can be very useful in PvP as it is unpredictable and can easily confuse an opponent.
