The pipe bomb is an excellent weapon for making an entrance, as a single well-placed bomb can insta-gib most enemies. It’s a simple concept; you toss a pipe bomb a few feet in front of you and then hit the detonator. This results in a satisfying boom, laying waste to anything unlucky enough to be nearby.
The pipe bomb differs from a standard grenade due to the many ways you can utilize it. You can absolutely litter the floor with them, laying a trap for unlucky deathmatch opponents or beefy bosses. Pipe bombs can also be detonated with a well-placed bullet, and their small size makes them too hard to see until your enemy is standing on top of one.
