Bomb Jumping is an unofficial method that lets you traverse quickly and far if done right, in cost of health.
Bomb Jumping can be executed with any explosive entity that deals knockback, is it a spawned bomb, your bomb or an enemy. It requires a lot of practice to master the practice of Bomb Jumping. In steps, this is how you perform the Bomb Jump:
1. Find a suitable bomb and where you want to get to. It’s best to choose bombs that don’t deal too much damage but can still push you away.
2. Choose the right position. Most of the times you want to face the direction you want to fly.
3. Time it out right. Keep looking at the fuse of your bomb. Jump just as it’s about to explode to send you as far as possible. Nitro bombs explode right as you touch them, making them a great bomb to jump with.
4. Maneuver mid-air. Try to find a safe spot to land on with no bombs or other threats such as magma.
5. Try to heal yourself after the jump. If you didn’t use your own bomb, you’ll take damage. Try to find a pizza, use a Heal skill or request healing from others to patch your wounds up.
Remember that Bomb Jumping should be performed only if no other travel options are available or you have to move quickly from point A to point B.
