The new FAQ clarifies that a Stink Bomb will deal bomb damage to the target it hits. My questions are:

  • Does a Stink Bomb also deal splash damage to the surrounding targets?
  • Can I use Precise Bombs to limit where the Stink Cloud appears?
  • What is the Fortitude save for the created Stink Cloud?

1 Answer 1


Yes, Stink Bombs inflict "normal bomb damage", which means they still do their splash damage as well. Precise Bombs will limit who takes the splash damage, but the fog cloud / stinking cloud spell still cover their normal area. The Fort save DC is determined as normal,

10 + 1/2 the alchemist's level + the alchemist's Intelligence modifier

per the PFSRD.

    \$\begingroup\$ OK, so throwing a Stink Bomb produces three effects: direct damage to target, splash damage (controlled by precise bombs), and finally the stink cloud that I can't control. Does that sound right? Thank you! \$\endgroup\$
