The Banana Bomb itself is basically a very bouncy, Dynamite-powered Cluster Bomb. As the case is with the Grenade and Cluster Bomb, the Banana Bomb has an adjustable fuse from 1 to 5 seconds, but it does not have adjustable bounce in 2nd-generation games. Once the fuse ends, the fruit explodes with the same properties of Dynamite, and it produces five more bananas that explode upon impact with the terrain, a worm, or an object.
This weapon is usually only found in crates due to its ability to cause massive damage, but certain schemes, such as Pro, have it be a part of the default arsenal, and it is also a team weapon in Worms 3D.

Tips & Tricks
- This weapon is very powerful as each single shard has the same force as Dynamite, so you should practice aiming it as otherwise you might accidentally kill your own Worm(s) or throw it too far from the enemy.
- The Banana Bomb bounces on contact with the land, so throwing it too hard will cause it to bounce far away from your target.
- Placing a Banana Bomb near an explosive (such as an Oil Drum) will cause the shards to soar and cause mass focus damage.
- The Banana Bomb is a reference to a weapon from Gorillas.
- In Worms Armageddon, there is an unlockable cheat that "upgrades Banana Bombs into Super Banana Bombs", except it doesn't do that at all, and instead changes the power so that 8 banana shards are released with each inflicting maximum damage of 100 points.
- The Banana Bomb is not a superweapon, although it's incredibly powerful.
- Unlike the Cluster Bomb, the Banana Bomb shards are affected by explosions. As a result the weapon is unstable since the shards make powerful explosions.
- In first-generation games, a notification saying "Soft fruit... wasted!!" appears if the weapon falls into the water.
