Boombats are small, fuzzy creatures that the Stranger uses as live ammo for his crossbow. When launched they will stick to enemies and eventually explode, causing heavy damage. They are first encountered in Oddworld: Stranger's Wrath on the way back through the mines after Stranger's battle with The Looten Duke at the Water Facility.

Boombat Seekers Edit

Boombats can be upgraded to Boombat Seekers later in the game.

Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty Edit

During the development of Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty a contest was launched by Oddworld Inhabitants to name various trophies in the game. One of the trophy descriptions read "Kill a Boombat with a rock.", indicating that Boombats were supposed to appear in the game in one form or another, possibly as a Native version of grenades.[1] Later during the game's development the idea for Boombats was dropped entirely and regular bats now appear in the final game. The corresponding achievement, Rockin' Mudokon, now reads "Kill a bat with a rock.".[2]
