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

It replaces S2 Ability Bomb Defense Up.png Bomb Defense Up and S2 Ability Cold-Blooded.png Cold-Blooded and has the same effect as the combination of both at the same level (i.e. a single primary slot of Bomb Defense Up DX is equivalent to one primary slot of each of the two old abilities). Inkline Inkline gear now has a 5× chance of rolling this ability, while Krak-On Krak-On now has a 1/2x chance of rolling this ability.

All gear that previously could be purchased from the shops with Bomb Defense Up can now only be purchased with Bomb Defense Up DX.

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")
