The Mega Bomb is a one-time use explosive item. It damages certain items within its radius. Other items are impervious to its effects.

Mega Bombs can be crafted or purchased from the Dwarf (in The Mines and in the Volcano) for Gold.png1,000g. Kent may randomly send you a Mega Bomb in the mail. Squid Kids, Iridium Bats, and Haunted Skulls may also drop a Mega Bomb when slain. The Desert Trader will trade 5 Iridium Ore for 1 Mega Bomb. It can be won from the Crane Game inside the Movie Theater, during any season. Five Mega Bombs may occasionally be found in Treasure Rooms in the Skull Cavern.

Tip: Due to the wide blast area it is often a challenge to use the Mega Bomb without taking damage. Ensure you have ample healing supplies.


Note that the following is not an exhaustive list:

  • Rocks and ore/gem nodes will drop their respective ores, gems, etc.
  • Mushrooms and foraged minerals will be destroyed.
  • Any untilled dirt tiles or Artifact Spots within a significantly smaller radius will become tilled, dropping any items (e.g., clay, artifacts) at the same rate as a player using a hoe.
  • Crafted artisan and refining equipment will be destroyed.
  • Heaters will be destroyed.
  • Auto-Grabbers will not be destroyed, whether empty or containing items.
  • Trees will be destroyed when their health reaches zero (this may require more than one bomb). Trees will drop wood, sap, and any seeds they contained.


The Mega Bomb has a radius of 6-8 tiles.
