Release a rat with a safety bomb attached. While it's running, press again to reverse its direction.

The Rat Bombardier is an Heirloom used by King Knight in King of Cards. It can be purchased for 2 Merit Medals from Hedge Pupil in its related Heirloom Course in the Plains. Using it costs 8 vigor.

When deployed, the Rat Bombardier moves forward and jumps across platforms. Activating it again while it's running causes it to change directions. It detonates on contact with an obstacle.


  • The prior development name for the Rat Bombardier was Rat Bomb.
  • The Rat Bombardier behaves similarly to the Bait Bomb, the differences being that it's slower, has higher and farther jumps, and can change direction.
