It will explode into fragments upon hitting a target, hitting an obstruction, or reaching its maximum range.

Exploding is an ammunition brand found solely on tomahawks. Throwing an exploding item at a target creates an unavoidable 3x3 explosion that deals 2d5 physical damage to the target and everything adjacent to it. Explosive ammo always mulches when thrown.


Exploding tomahawks are useful for taking out evasive, fragile opponents and enemy summoners hiding behind their summons. However, be aware that the explosions they produce are loud enough to attract a lot of attention. They are also quite rare outside of the Orcish Mines.


Prior to 0.18, exploding could generate on sling bullets. It could also generate on large rocks, but only on those sold in branded ammunition shops.

0.17 added exploding tomahawks.

Prior to 0.15, exploding darts were common.
