The Scarab Bomb is an item teased to be released in the Desktop 1.4 update. It appears to be a tool-like consumable item used for instantly mining large shafts. It is "Unique to the Desert Biome and descended from the ancient beetles of legend, these handy helpers make digging long tunnels or shafts a breeze!" Once attached to a surface, the direction of the bomb adapts to the player's location relative to the bomb's location.
