In-Game Description

Powerful ranged weapon, especially in situations called for fire damage. A very precious item at low levels.
Black Firebombs are especially destructive.


General information[]

Locking onto an enemy and throwing them will deal large Fire damage.

Black Firebombs as one's starting gift are a particularly reliable method to defeat the Asylum Demon on a first playthrough and obtain the Demon's Great Hammer.


Black Firebombs are very powerful early in the game. The damage they deal is enough to make them competitive as useful utility items throughout the middle of the game. However, at higher levels their relative damage may be considered lackluster.
