Prime gaming knowledge bomb detail.png

Prime gaming knowledge bombs are items received when redeeming Prime Gaming rewards. Activating one of the bombs provides the player with a 50% XP boost for 1 hour. Several bombs can be activated at once, each increasing the boost duration by an additional hour.

The bombs are stackable in the inventory and can be banked. The XP boost provided by the knowledge bombs undergoes the same restrictions as the XP boost during a Double XP Live event. The XP boost countdown does not decrease while the player is in the lobby or logged out. They do work in combination with dwarven tools.

The bombs share the XP boost from the Small knowledge bomb, meaning that both bombs use the same timer instead of being two separate boosts.

They were first available from 5 January until 2 February 2021. They were made available again from 22 June to 20 July of the same year.

Ironman accounts are not eligible to receive these bombs.
