Bomb King is one of the Champions in Paladins.

Lore[edit | edit source]

During a fortress siege long ago, a clever warlord decided that the best way to breach her enemy's defenses was by creating walking bombs. Her warlock accidentally brought one of the larger bombs to life, creating the Bomb King. After destroying her entire army himself, Bomb King struck out on his own delusional quest to visit all the lands under his rule.

The common folk know better than to offend or even stand very close to him, as his regal demeanor can instantly change to furious, explosive rage at any moment.

Summary[edit | edit source]

Bomb King is a damage champion with a heavy focus on area damage. His Sticky Bombs can be deployed on walls and even enemies, which can then be detonated at will. His Grumpy Bomb deals damage and stuns all enemies in a wide area, which is useful for area denial and forcing the enemy to get out of position. Poppy Bomb can be used both as a escape tool and to send enemies near it flying away. His ultimate skill, King Bomb, turns Bomb King himself into a mobile bomb that deals high damage in a very large area around him and stuns enemies. Bomb King has the potential to deal one of the highest possible burst Damage in the game. But is Weak to enemies constantly flanking him.
