A sticky bomb.

Collecting Paste permanently turns the Spelunker's bombs into sticky bombs, which adhere to whatever they touch, including enemies and items.

Unlike normal bombs, thrown sticky bombs do not deal damage to entities they hit, but will stick to them.


  • With a Powerpack, the Spelunker's power bombs are given adhesive properties as well.
  • Bombs that Monkeys and Leprechauns remove from the Spelunker's inventory are also sticky.
  • Sticky bombs are unaffected by Conveyor Belts, unmoving.
  • Bombs affected by paste cannot stick to Quicksand, instead sinking through like a normal bomb.
  • Throwing a sticky bomb at a Floating Orb has it stick to the orb.


  • If a sticky bomb somehow sticks itself onto the Spelunker, they may unstick it from their body by "picking it up" as if it was a normal item on the ground, regardless of its position on the body.
  • Bombs do not bounce and roll due to their sticky properties, which may make it more difficult to place a bomb down into tight spaces.
    • Placing a sticky bomb against a corner sticks it to the wall rather than the ground, rendering it unable to be picked up.
