Bomb Sniffer allows players to easily spot opponents' bombs. All bombs within a certain distance appear as skull icons on their screen. These skull icons can be seen through walls. Bomb Sniffer is restricted to shoes as a main ability.
The ability's effects are always active.
Since this ability is found as the main ability only on shoes, other abilities found only on shoes are mutually exclusive with it; in other words you cannot have them together. These abilities are Ink Resistance Up and Stealth Jump.
Bomb Sniffer allows safer passage through the map by making it easier to avoid bombs. In the event that a player just barely escapes a bomb, the damage taken from that bomb will be reduced significantly, increasing chances of survival during a Bomb Rush.
The following Gear items have Bomb Sniffer as their main ability. Bomb Sniffer is exclusive to Shoes items and cannot be rolled as a sub-ability.
- ▲ Bomb Sniffer will now also reduce the first 100 points of damage(*) dealt by Splat Bombs, Suction Bombs, Seekers, and Ink Mines by 40%, and damage dealt by Burst Bombs by 20%. Damage values do not include the effects of Attack Up or Defense Up.
