Bomb Defense Up DX is an ability in Splatoon 2. It was added to the game on 5 December 2018 as part of Version 4.3.0.

Bomb Defense Up DX reduces the damage taken from enemy sub weapons. Autobombs, Curling Bombs, Ink Mines, Splat Bombs, and Suction Bombs have their damage reduced by up to 50%. Burst Bombs have their damage reduced by up to 40%. Bomb Defense Up DX reduces the damage taken from special weapons by up to 35%. Bomb Defense Up DX is known to affect the Baller, Inkjet, Splashdown, and Tenta Missiles. The ability offers players a means of increasing survivability. For example, just one sub slot of the ability prevents the player from being splatted by two near-miss Inkjet shots. The damage reductions are never enough to prevent a one-hit splat.

Bomb Defense Up DX can stop the tracking effects of Point Sensors, Ink Mines, Thermal Ink, Haunt, and the Sting Ray. As a player stacks more Bomb Defense Up DX, a Thermal Ink user must be farther away from the Bomb Defense Up DX users in order to see their Thermal Ink silhouette.

History

At the time of its release, it replaced Bomb Defense Up and Cold-Blooded, and had the same effect as the combination of both of those abilities with the same number of AP (e.g. 10 AP of this ability is equivalent to 10 AP of each of the two old abilities). All gear with Bomb Defense Up that could be purchased from the shops before its replacement can now be purchased with this ability.

Bomb Defense Up DX was superseded in Splatoon 3 by Sub Resistance Up.

Translation notes

  1. The kanji 改 used here, when on its own, is usually read with the kun-yomi "Aratame", but in the announcement video is pronounced with the on-yomi "Kai", making it a modifier of the previous term rather than its own word (i.e. "-revised" and not "revision")
