Bombs teleport themselves directly into rooms, bypassing shields and defense drones. They cost missile ammunition to fire. They are the only weapons that can be fired at your own ship.

Bombs deal no hull damage, but can damage or disrupt enemy systems and crew. They can miss, but not when targeting your own ship.

Bombs cannot bypass Zoltan Shields (without the Zoltan Shield Bypass augment), but any system or ion damage will be applied to the shield (Ion and Stun Bombs do double damage). Fire Bombs and Lockdown Bombs have no effect on a Zoltan Shield. Repair Burst heals enemy Zoltan Shields (but cannot heal your own)!

Bombs can be destroyed before they detonate, if the room they are in takes damage.

Comparing bombs to missilesEdit

Both bombs and missile weapons use 1 missile ammunition every time they fire, both ignore shields, and both can be dodged. Missiles can be shot down by defence drones, bombs cannot. Missiles deal hull damage, bombs do not.

Both these weapons are best used as support or utility weapons, rather than damage-dealers. Using missiles as your main damage source will rapidly exhaust your ammunition.

In general, bombs work better in this supporting role. Most bombs need only 1 weapons power. All purchasable missile weapons require 2 or 3 power, and most have a long charge time.

For example, a Small Bomb is typically more useful than a Hull Missile. It uses 1 power instead of 2, takes 13 seconds to charge instead of 17, and cannot be shot down by defense drones.
