This is a guide to using Bomb Rocks in Pikmin 3 Deluxe for the Nintendo Switch. Read on to learn more bomb rocks tips and tricks, and various uses for Bomb Rocks.
Bomb rocks are a useful aid for the player, and can be a clutch tool when you are in a tight spot! Be wary though, as Bomb Rocks can easily kill your Pikmin as well. If you have a bomb rock holding Pikmin in your party, always exert caution when throwing Pikmin, as its very easy to throw one too many Pikmin and accidentally toss the bomb when you don't have time to pull your Pikmin back.
Adding and using Bomb Rocks in your arsenal is easy.
First, command any type of Pikmin to pick up the rock. You can do so by throwing a Pikmin at a Bomb Rock. They will automatically pick it up and add it to your arsenal.
Second, make sure to have the bomb rock selected. There is an image of a Bomb Rock on your bottom right which shows if it is equipped. Then aim for an obstacle or enemy that you want to blow up!
Finally, sit back and watch the explosion!
Bomb Rocks are most commonly used to get rid of obstacles in your way, like iron walls, which take three bomb rocks. In addition, you can blow up dirt walls too, which take only one. Bomb Rocks can also be used to easily dig up fruit that is buried, saving you the time it takes to dig. However, using bombs for these purposes is a bit wasteful, so only do so if you have already blown up any iron walls, or if the day is about to end.
In addition, bombs can be used on some enemies that are a threat to your Pikmin. Enemies are often damaged by nearby bomb rock explosions and some enemies can even be baited to eat them! Here is a list of enemies that have a taste for explosions:
|Whiptongue Bulborb||Burrowing Snagret||Orange Bulborb||Bug-Eyed Crawmad|
|Toady Bloyster||Bulborb||Spotty Bulbear||Peckish Aristocrab|
|Pyroclasmic Slooch||Sandbelching Meerslug|
Using bomb rocks against the Sandbelching Meerslug is a must!
