Poison bomb

A poison bomb is a bomb potion that can be thrown to create a 3x3 area for 6 seconds which applies poison to monsters standing in it. The bomb has no effect on other players. It can be made at level 99 Herblore in a bomb vial using primal extract, clean irit, poison slime, and a weapon poison++. Using a bomb consumes it.

At level 101 Herblore the recipe is improved, which reduces the time taken to make the bomb. At level 103 it is further improved, reducing the number of poison slime required from 2 to 1 and the dosage of the required potion from 4 to 3.

These bombs do cause aggression from monsters, affected by poison. However, once poison is applied, further poison damage does not cause any further aggression. Cast range of all bombs is 9 tiles.

The poisons damage is based on current weapon damage. To maximise poison damage, equip the best weapon possible. With nothing equipped it will do around 10 damage each time, whereas if a spell is selected it can deal in excess of 300 damage per poison.

The update history project is a work-in-progress – not all updates to this topic may be covered below. See here for how to help out!
  • patch 3 August 2020 (Update):
    • It's no longer possible to use a 'bomb' on a banker NPC - instead the player is now asked how many bombs they would like to deposit.
