The Head Bomb is a craftable weapon and explosive that was added in update v0.08 to The Forest.

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The head bomb is not thrown as far as the normal explosive and takes longer to detonate. Currently you can only make one Head bomb at a time. The head bomb is the most powerful bomb in the game, though it is quite difficult to use. The fuse on it is long, taking about five seconds to detonate. Cannibals are very difficult to hit with it as they run away from bombs. Another issue is that the head bomb will roll away very easily, which makes it difficult to hit your intended target. A good idea is to throw it into a circle of cannibals around you and hold them there, though make sure you move out of the area when it is about to explode. Another good idea is to combine the head bomb with tree sap to make it sticky. Head bombs can not be attached to trees like dynamite, bombs and sticky bombs.

Try to carry a head around with you. That way if you max out your timed bomb amount, you can make a head bomb as an extra.

Head Bombs and other explosives will explode animals and cannibals into gibs. This means you cannot get bones, arms, legs or heads from cannibals or meats and head trophies from animals.
