Singularity Bombs are powerful explosive weapons added in ✔️DLCDownpour. They are dark blue orbs with a lighter blue center and small, thin protrusions that can move and rotate around the center. A Singularity Bomb is capable of instantly killing any creatures in its distortion radius, including Guardians. They are sometimes carried by Elite Scavengers and can be crafted by Gourmand by combining a Fire Egg with a Grenade or Karma Flower.

Function

Combat

Detonation of a Singularity Bomb

When thrown, Singularity Bombs rise into the air and begin emitting lightning, distorting the area around them and pulling any nearby creatures in. 4 seconds after being thrown, they release a shockwave that stuns and causes knockback to all creatures in the room. Anything inside the distorted zone immediately dies. The visual distortion effect lasts for 6 seconds after the explosion.

This makes them a very powerful weapon, capable of dispatching any threat. However, they can stun and disarm Slugcat from over a screen away and may even pull them in and kill them if thrown from a short distance.

Singularity Bombs cannot be used underwater, instead sinking downwards similarly to a Grenade when thrown.

Other detonations

Singularity Bombs can also be detonated from a distance by any direct impact, including but not limited to:

However, unlike Grenades, Singularity Bombs cannot be activated by explosions.

Crafting

Gourmand can use Singularity Bombs to easily craft Fire Eggs. However, this has limited functionality, as a Fire Egg is required to craft the Singularity Bomb in the first place. Other outputs are as follows:

Trivia

  • According to Looks to the Moon, Singularity Bombs are actually small damaged Rarefaction Cells with lower energy density.[1]
    • They are unstable and dangerous, so she refuses to use them to power herself, as her systems would be unable to handle them safely.
    • She also believes using them as weapons is foolhardy and extremely risky, and immediately orders Slugcat to remove the item from her premises.
      • Throwing a Singularity Bomb in her room causes her to exclaim, "WHY?!".
  • Miros Bird eyes flash colors when caught in the radius of the explosion.
    • This is likely due to the Flashbang-like effect that accompanies the detonation.
  • If Slugcat throws a Singularity Bomb at Five Pebbles, he panics and ejects both Slugcat and the Singularity Bomb from his chamber.
    • This results in a guaranteed death, as Slugcat has no time to escape the explosion once they are out of his chamber.
      • This can sometimes glitch if Slugcat throws two Singularity Bombs in quick succession. This results in only one detonating, and Slugcat is not ejected. The Singularity Bomb pulls in Five Pebbles' puppet and Pearls but does not kill him.
  • The Singularity Bomb's shockwave recharges uncharged Electric Spears, but explodes them instead if they already contain charge.
  • A Singularity Bomb reskinned to look like the AndrewFM egg spawns at the beginning of every cycle for Inv.
  • Throwing a Singularity Bomb is considered a non-lethal attack for social interactions.
  • Singularity Bombs are the only method with which a player can be blamed for their own death.

  1. Take this and leave, now.

    If you must know... this is a low density mass rarefaction cell.

    The energy trapped inside this is incredible, and while my facility is capable of extracting it, the shielding on this cell has been damaged. Either through old age, or abuse.

    I do not doubt you found this with the scavengers, somehow. While they may not understand the things they find, they have a natural inclination for combat. Using these as a weapon however, would be horribly foolish.
