Sticky Bombs are a type of explosive crafted from Bombs and Gel. They can be used as a mining tool or a weapon, although generally the former. When used, a Sticky Bomb is thrown a few blocks away from the player and sticks to the first solid tile it touches (including a ceiling or a platform). If the tile it sticks to is removed by some means, it will fall until it hits another tile. After 3 seconds, it will explode, inflicting 100 points of damage to nearby enemies and destroying multiple blocks around it. The player can also inflict harm to themselves if not careful.

Sticky Bombs can destroy almost any block (with some exceptions), which can then be collected.

  • Sticky Bombs can be very useful for clearing an area, as they are more precise than their non-sticky counterpart and much safer. However, they have a shorter overall reach.
    • Thus, they are particularly useful when trying to destroy Crimson Hearts or Shadow Orbs as the player will not need to create barriers to keep them from rolling away.
  • While the Sticky Bomb sells for 1 SC, its ingredients only sell for 61 CC, hence it is more profitable to craft Bombs into Sticky Bombs and sell them than selling the ingredients.
