Techniques: Triple Bomb Jump

Discovered by


Triple Bomb Jumping is a technique used to achieve greater height than Double Bomb Jumping allows. In a Banks Triple Bomb Jump, the first bomb is "burned" or wasted in order to shorten the Bomb Stock refresh time. This shortened refresh time gives you two extra bombs to work with.

Here's how it's done:

Pressing against a wall will allow you to delay the placement of the final two Bombs, resulting in even greater height.

Morphing out at the height of the Bomb Jump will give you a final height boost.

Examples of Triple Bomb Jumping include getting across Magma Pool without the Grapple Beam and Gravity Suit and Bomb Jumping over the Arboretum Runic Gate.
