Salt Bulbs are a water-reactive Fruit dropped by the Salt Vine Plant.


Salt Bulbs are a yellow fruit. They are a dangerous fruit to leave around or contain in non-watertight containers as left submerged in water for 3 seconds, it will detonate, inflicting Burn (20)* and Stun (5)* to anyone within a 0.5m radius (without hull damage). Water from the Watering Can WILL NOT trigger the explosive reaction.


Like all Fruits, Salt Bulbs can be thrown (Right Mouse to Aim, then Left Mouse), leaving a fruity, yellowy goo on the walls.
