A timebomb at E4M5

The Delmintalintar's Bomb of the Ancients is an artifact in Heretic. It looks like a floating hourglass. When set, a Timebomb of the Ancients floats where the player was standing for 40 tics, then explodes and deals damage another 6 tics later. It causes splash damage 128 units in radius, with 128 units of damage at the center.

Strategy[]

When the player is being chased by hordes of monsters, it can be effective to leave behind some timebombs to clear them away. The timebomb also acts as a grenade, being very good at clearing rooms with weak monsters. It is overall an extremely effective way to deal significant amounts of damage.
