- "Also, I took the liberty of watching the tapes of you killing her, and I'm not going to make the same mistakes. Four part plan is this: One: No portal surfaces. Two: Start the neurotoxin immediately. Three: Bomb-proof shields for me. Leading directly into number Four: Bombs. For throwing at you. You know what, this plan is so good, I'm going to give you a sporting chance and turn off the neurotoxin. I'm joking. Of course. Goodbye."
- ― Wheatley[src]
Along with the Military Androids and Sentry Turrets, it is one of the few known weapons designed by Aperture. The bombs are delivered via the Pneumatic Diversity Vents and explode on contact with surfaces. They are only in the game for two levels and are never used in any of the Test Chambers. At the end of the game, Wheatley uses them against Chell, which in turn returns them to him through the use of her portals and the Conversion Gel.
Behind the scenes
The bomb's model is reminiscent of the Anger Core. Its name is
personality_sphere_anger.mdl, and its animation is called "anger." The model itself has a red "eye", reminiscent of the Anger Core. Its entity name,
prop_exploding_futbol, evokes the cut Futbol.
The Portal 2 soundtrack track "Bombs for Throwing at You" is a direct reference to the bomb as introduced by Wheatley in his sentence "Bombs. For throwing at you.".
