The Ballistic Poison Bomb in use.

The Ballistic Poison Bomb is a craftable Hardmode bomb. It throws bombs that are affected by gravity. Upon contact with an enemy, it explodes and launches several fragments that fly in random directions, while also creating a poison cloud similar to the one produced by the Toxic Flask. Collision with a tile will cause the bomb to stick onto the tile for a short period of time, after which, it launches the fragments. The shrapnel will stick to all tiles and enemies, and will explode after a short delay. The poison clouds and shrapnel deal 30% of the bomb's damage.

Performing a stealth strike with the Ballistic Poison Bomb will cause three bombs to be thrown instead of one.

Its best modifier is Flawless.

  • The poison clouds deal typeless damage rather than rogue damage. However, boosting the weapon's damage will still increase the damage of the poison clouds.
  • Unlike its predecessor, it only explodes on impact when hitting an enemy. When impacting a tile, it behaves similarly to a Sticky Bomb.
