Throwable bomb with remote detonation.
— In-game description[src]

The Trigger Bomb is a purchasable power-up for Bentley in Sly 2: Band of Thieves, Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time.


The Trigger Bomb is a remote detonated version of Bentley's regular bombs, which comes in handy when you want to leave a bomb for any unsuspecting guard walking by. Trigger bombs will automatically explode if they are thrown into water, attacked or if Bentley becomes too distant from them. Any enemy within the blast of the trigger bomb will be affected the same way they would be from the normal bomb; they either become dazed or are taken out, depending on their health and whether or not they have been knocked out via Bentley's sleep darts.

In Sly 2 and Sly 3, the Trigger Bomb power-up allows Bentley to throw the bomb in an arc anywhere within a certain distance from where he is standing. When a trigger bomb is thrown, the assigned button used to throw it is the same one used to detonate it.

In Thieves in Time, the Trigger Bomb power-up automatically makes all bombs trigger bombs once it is purchased, and is detonated by pressing R2Button. Meanwhile, the ability to throw bombs in an arc from a distance has been made a default move accessible by holding L1Button and pressing TriangleButton to throw the bomb. If the Multi Bomb power-up has been purchased and multiple bombs are in play, holding R2Button detonates them simultaneously.
