Where to Get Bombs in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom (& How to Use Them)

Time to make a big boom.

One of the most important tools in any Zelda game is a bomb. Nothing beats a handheld explosive when it comes to revealing a secret or killing a tough enemy. And they still definitely play a role in the newest game but in a slightly different way. Here’s where to get bombs and how to use them in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom.

Where to Find Bombs in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

As you might expect, bombs in Tears of the Kingdom have been adjusted to work perfectly with the new Fuse mechanics.

Bomb Flower

When starting out, your first source for Bombs will be the Bomb Flower found in the Bottomless Cave. Said cave is found in the southeastern area of Great Sky Island. You will have to enter this cave on your way to Gutanbac Shrine.

There are four in the opening area of the cave before you have to go under the root at the top of the stairs. In addition, they can also be found growing in large quantities in the darkness of The Depths.

Time Bomb

The Time Bomb is a Zonai Device that, once set, explodes after a certain amount of time. This bomb will also activate nearby Zonai Devices. This can be useful for setting up chain reactions.

You can get these in capsule form from the Device Dispenser in the West Hebra Sky Archipelago near the Ijo-o Shrine. The Dispenser is at coordinates -3808, 2757, 0702.

How to Use Bombs in Zelda Tears of the Kingdom

As with just about all materials throughout Hyrule, Bomb Flowers can fuse with weapons. The first thing that might come to mind is fusing them with a melee weapon.

This is obviously an option, but it’s not without risk. While the bomb won’t go off if you hit it against a random wall, it will detonate on enemy contact with injury to you as well. Due to this, if you’re going to fuse it to a stick, you’re better off throwing it.

For safety, the preferable option is combining the Bomb Fruit with an arrow (up D-pad and scroll to Bomb Fruit with the left stick) before firing it. This will do plenty of area damage to whatever you were aiming at while keeping you safe from harm. Pro tip: they’re perfect when dealing with those dastardly Gloom Hands.
