Version 0.16: This article may not be up to date for the latest stable release of Crawl.

Exploding is an ammunition brand found mainly on sling bullets, but which may also be found on large rocks sold in branded ammunition shops. Slinging or throwing an exploding item at a target creates an unavoidable explosion that deals 2d5 physical damage to the target and everything adjacent to it. Explosive ammo always mulches when thrown.

Strategy

Although their damage output is fairly low, exploding sling bullets can often be found early on, providing useful guaranteed firepower for low-level characters. Although they deal more damage when launched from a sling, throwing them works fine as well. They are useful for taking out evasive, fragile opponents such as giant spores, but be aware that the explosions they produce are loud enough to attract a lot of attention.

History

In 0.17 there will be also exploding tomahawks.

Prior to 0.15, exploding darts were common.
