The Demolitionist

For the placeable item seen as a trap in Cavern areas, see Explosives.

Explosives are a type of consumable weapon. Explosive devices are thrown from stacks in the player's inventory, after which there is a short delay before they explode. This detonation causes area-effect damage, as well as destroying Blocks, Walls, and other placeable objects within the radius of an explosion. Only a small number of objects are resistant to these explosions.

Explosives deal a set amount of damage which cannot be altered by any bonuses, unlike the great majority of weapons.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • There are several weapons which cause an explosion upon impact, e.g. Grenades. However, these deal rangedDesktop VersionOld-gen console version3DS Version / throwingConsole VersionMobile Version damage and are thus not considered part of the Explosives class.
    • Despite not being part of the Explosives class, any type of Grenades, including Beenades, fulfills one of the requirements needed for the Demolitionist to arrive.
  • When fired from certain launchers, Rockets of types II and IV destroy blocks within their radius. However, Rockets are considered ammunition.
  • A maximum of 400 loose items can be spawned at any given time, regardless of whether they are stacked. If more than 400 loose items are created as a result of destruction with explosives, some of them will be lost.
