The Boom Machine is a machine that dispenses grenades. The grenades can be picked up by Abe and used to destroy environmental hazards or enemies.

In Oddworld: Abe's Oddysee and Oddworld: Abe's Exoddus the Boom Machine dispenses a single grenade at a time, requiring Abe to return to the machine every time a new grenade is needed. In Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty the Boom Machine dispenses multiple grenades at once, depending on the set difficulty level.[1] Abe gets 5 grenades on easy difficulty, 3 on normal and 1 on hard.

Grenades Edit

Grenades can be thrown by Abe in an arc from the position he is standing, as well as dropping them at his feet while running or standing still. While aiming the grenade will start to count down with a series of beeps, which can be used to time the explosion of the grenade. If Abe aims a grenade for too long without throwing it will explode and kill Abe in the process.

The explosion of a grenade will destroy most other explosives, including land mines and UXBs. They are also able to kill any creatures caught in the blast radius, including Mudokons. Chant suppressors may also be destroyed by a well timed grenade, allowing Abe to possess enemies previously out of his reach.

Notes Edit

  • Holding on to a live grenade before throwing it is referred to as 'cooking' a grenade. Both in video games and in real life this technique is often used to reduce the enemy's time to react.
  • In Oddworld: New 'n' Tasty, blowing up a chant suppressor with a cooked grenade unlocks the 'Cooked to Perfection' achievement.
