The Autobomb is a sub weapon in Splatoon 2.

Splatoon 2

Autobombs are comparable to S Weapon Sub Seeker.png Seekers from Splatoon. Unlike the Seeker however, they are thrown and do not roll on the ground, they do not leave a trail of ink and can freely change direction. Once thrown, the Autobomb will seek out any enemy players in the vicinity, indicated by the circle which appears once the Autobomb has landed, and will automatically move towards them for quite a long time. Once the Autobomb reaches a player or travels far enough without reaching the player, it will explode. If thrown and no enemies are in range, the Autobomb will automatically explode where it was thrown, similar to a S2 Weapon Sub Splat Bomb.png Splat Bomb.

Due to the fact that the Autobomb walks towards nearby opponents, it can be used to locate hiding enemies. The Autobomb is small, does not spread ink, and is able to walk in enemy ink unaffected, so it can sneak up on opponents more effectively than an Inkling can. However, it continuously makes noise while it is traveling towards the player that it has tracked, similar to a Seeker.

S2 Ability Sub Power Up.png Sub Power Up increases throwing range and air travel velocity for the Autobomb.

  • The Autobomb is the only weapon that is made by Auto
