Fires a bomb that sticks to most surfaces and explodes when remotely detonated.
- Base skill description
The Sticky Bomb is a piece of SHD Technology that lets an agent fire an adhesive-tipped bomb that attaches to any surface (including enemies) and is manually detonated for explosive damage in a radius.
The "Blast Mod" for the Sticky Bomb deals explosive damage. Once it has been fired, it takes a second to prime and can then be detonated. In order for an agent to use it, they must defeat James Dragov.
The "Burn Mod" for the Sticky Bomb deals fire damage to the surrounding area. Upon detonation, the surrounding area (and all enemies in it) are set ablaze. The only way to acquire this mod is by defeating Vivian Conley.
The Sticky Bomb is basically a frag grenade (baseline/BFB), flashbang (Flashbang) or EMP grenade (Disruptor) on a stick. Like the First Aid skill is to medkits, the Sticky Bomb is a good alternative source for ordnance so as to make your grenade supply last longer.
The Sticky Bomb is useful for softening up veterans as well as causing panic amongst the enemy. For best results, try sticking the bomb directly onto an enemy, as it will inflict full damage upon them once detonated.
The Sticky Bomb fulfulls multiple purposes and is a versatile skill. The baseline bomb and the BFB mod are for those who want raw damage, while the Flashbang and Disruptor mods can provide critical crowd control without tapping into your precious supply of grenades, be it by stunning enemies or destroying any active skills they're using. If you know what sorts of enemies you're going to run into, plan ahead and change the bomb's mod ahead of time to take advantage.
If the Sticky Bomb is attached to an enemy, the victim may pull it off them and throw it away if not detonated. The higher rank the enemy, the quicker they can remove the bomb. The bomb will still be active even when removed, so it can still be detonated.
The Sticky Bomb cannot be detonated mid-flight. This includes while it's sailing through the air or when an enemy pulls the bomb off their person and throws it away.
