Last Adjustment Patch 13.00

Stink Bomb is a Rare explosive weapon in Battle Royale. Upon detonation, it creates a yellow-ish stinky gas cloud that lasts 9 seconds, deals 5 damage every half-second and bypasses shields. The thrower of the Stink Bomb can be damaged within the area of effect while teammates do not take any damage from it. The Stink Bomb drops in stacks of 3 with a maximum stack size of 6 and can be found in Floor Loot, Chests, Supply Llamas, and Vending Machines.

The Stink Bomb used to be Epic, but was demoted to Rare following Patch 7.20.

The Stink Bomb has been vaulted in Patch 11.0, making it currently only available in creative mode. It was vaulted to free up space.

The Stink Bomb has been unvaulted for 24 hours on December 21, 2019 for the Winterfest event. Following the Flint-Knock Pistol, this is the fourth item to be unvaulted for the event.

On Patch 13.00, the Stink Bombs have been unvaulted. It was only obtainable from Maruaders and Loot Sharks. It has now been re-vaulted on Patch 14.00. Stink Bombs have received new sounds (explosive and gas cloud sound) with Patch 16.00.
