The Sticky Bombs are new explosives that are exclusive to The Ballad of Gay Tony. They are thrown, and stick to any vehicle or surface they hit. They can then be detonated by pressing Down on the d-pad or shooting them. Note that unlike the Satchel Charges of San Andreas, these bombs do not stick to people. The Sticky Bombs are seen in the Weazel News Trailer, which is used by the Terrorism Expert. When thrown the bombs emit a steady beep and a yellow light flashes. When activated the beep rises in pitch and speed, and the light turns red, then after less than a second, they detonate. The blast radius is similar to a grenade.
You can place up to ten Sticky Bombs, throwing out the eleventh will cause the first one to disappear.
Many players prefer this weapons in drive-by's, due to the fact that they deal a large amount of damage, can stick to any vehicle, and can be detonated at any time (which allows them to be used somewhat like landmines). However, the player must be careful to ensure that their own car doesn't get caught in the blast radius, if used these against a vehicle in close proximity. Another factor to take in mind is how fragile they are. As mentioned above, shooting them will cause them to explode. However, they can be detonated via physical contact. If it is placed onto a vertical surface and rammed by a car, it will detonate. One must take care when using them in a drive-by that that car that the bomb is stuck on doesn't attempt to ram the player, as the impact may cause the bomb to explode.
Players must also be careful when in close proximity of a placed bomb, as they have a 90 second (approximately) fuse. Thus, if an armed bomb is left undetonated for 90 seconds, it will automatically detonate.
