The Dark Retribution is a 5-star bomb.
The perfected version of the shadowy bomb that Warmaster Seerus engineered with the sole purpose of eliminating other gremlins that stood in his way. It is thought to have been reserved for use against other members of the Crimson Order. — Tooltip

Bombs do not have basic attacks, only charge attacks.
- Detonation Time: ~2.5 seconds
- Radius: ~3 tiles
Movement speed is decreased by medium while using the charged attack. The initial detonation delivers a single small damage blast up to the edge of the radius indicated. After the bomb's initial detonation, four orbs rotate around the inside circumference of the blast radius, damaging everything they touch for ~5 seconds. Note that although the orbs rotate clockwise and anticlockwise, the source of the damage is always from the center of the explosions. This means that directional shield enemies such as Mecha Knights and Mortafire Gremlins will have to have their backs to the center of the bomb in order to take damage from it. Also note that the reach of the rotating orbs is slightly less than the blast radius indicator.
The following damage values represent the weapon at its completed level, without any UV or bonus from other equipment, and listed as a range found from the first to last floor of each stratum.
