Bomb Fish are explosives obtained through fishing. They act as Sticky Bombs, sticking to any blocks that they are thrown at.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Bomb Fish does not cause the Demolitionist to spawn, despite being an explosive.
  • Unlike regular Bombs, Bomb Fish do not slow down in water.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Similar to Sticky Bombs, Bomb Fish are useful when a safe and precise detonation is required, such as when destroying Shadow Orbs or Crimson Hearts.
  • While Bomb Fish sell for 200*2, Sticky Bombs only sell for 100*1 (50% less). Therefore, it may be preferable to sell Bomb Fish and craft and use Sticky Bombs instead.
  • Console VersionMobile Version Due to the nearly doubled maximum stack size (Sticky Bombs only stack up to 30), Bomb Fish can be useful for saving inventory space when using large amounts of explosives.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Although the rest of its characteristics are identical to the Sticky Bomb, the Bomb Fish does not generate a faint glow when thrown, due to not having a fuse.
  • The Bomb Fish is one of three fished consumables, the other two being the Honeyfin and the Frost Daggerfish.
