The Reduction Bomb is a buyable Power-up in Sly 2: Band of Thieves, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time for Bentley.


Bentley places the bomb in Sly 2, but in Sly 3, he holds the bomb in a mechanical arm in front of him like he does normally with a bomb. By holding the assigned button down, you can see a green aura surrounding the bomb. When dropped, the bomb will flash faster and faster like any bomb, until it detonates. The radius of this bomb is very wide, and any guard in its range will be reduced to 25% of the original size. Afterwards, the guard's attack will be very weak, (though it still knocks back Bentley) and a single hit from Bentley will kill the guard. If not disposed of quickly, the guard will eventually return to its normal size. In Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time, the bomb is bought via ThiefNet under the powerup name 'Shrinking Ammo', and unlike the previous two games, this can be selected as the default bomb and doesn't reduce the Thief Meter.


  • Using this bomb on Carmelita in Sly 3 allows her to be killed, though she does not disappear. She will lay on the ground, and eventually return to normal size.
