"Mixed chemical bomb that has to be primed before release and detonates shortly after throwing."
— In-game description

The Canister Bomb is a lethal equipment introduced in Call of Duty: Ghosts. It will detonate shortly after being released. 


The Canister Bomb appears in multiplayer. It is extremely powerful but takes a long time to prime and cannot be thrown far. Therefore, the Strong-Arm and Reflex perks are highly recommended with this lethal to alleviate the main risks involved, as the player is left vulnerable by getting in close to deploy the bomb with its long priming time. If the player cooks it for too long, it will explode, and kill the player.


Canister Bombs appear in Extinction, and can be received from Team Explosives or Random Supplies. It can be a little more useful than in multiplayer at times because the Cryptids for the most part can only use close-range attacks, meaning player(s) can wait until there is a lot close to them and use it.


  • The Canister Bomb will not hurt Cryptids that are on the Laser Drill.
