Burst Bombs are a type of Sub Weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. Its appearance resembles a grenade or a water balloon rather a bomb, due to a grenade's or water balloon's handling.


Burst bombs appear to be spherical balloons filled with ink that explode on contact. They use less ink than Splat Bombs, and therefore cause less damage. They explode on contact with anything, including opponents. It takes 2 to 3 bombs to splat an enemy.
