“Equip trap and perform basic attack to throw.”
— In-game tooltip
An aerosol bomb is a thrown bomb that can only be crafted by players with the Engineer profession.


When thrown, the aerosol bomb sets off a small explosion and several small fires near where the bomb was thrown. This weapon is extremely effective for small hoards of 10 - 20 zombies, and can be a life saver in dire circumstances. The only downside to this weapon is the fact that there are few fires so taking out zombies with the fire is an unlikely prospect. The Flame trap is a better option if you are looking to take out much larger hoards using fire.



The aerosol bomb requires several common items found in houses.

Aerosol bombs are one of the rarest items in the game to find. Other than obtaining through crafting, they can only be found in the trunk of a survivalist vehicle.
