F2P: I would say yes if you don’t have him, but it depends on your situation. Read more below to find out.


Ratings are of my own opinion


Role: Defensive Core / Resilience / Agility Support / Unyielding / Decrease enemy healing
Type: Grappler / Martial Artist (Martial Artist)
Meta Duration:
We now know that SSR+ Geryu will be the next core, and judging from SEA’s liking to accelerate the timeline by putting LSSRs in the backup stick, we can safely say that Geryu core will be out in a few months (3-6?). However, Bomb will still be the best core for Hero side, and multiple teams with different cores are required for a lot of content, so Bomb won’t exactly be 100% out of meta.


Why you may want to pull:

  • He still will be the best core on Hero side; ZBM just doesn’t cut it
  • He still has quite a while (3-6 months) before the next core comes out
  • Core units are always useful, especially in content that requires multiple teams in both PVE and PVP (eg Mirage Trials, Club comp, Apex Clash etc). Basically, it gives you more OPTIONS to build your line-ups.
  • The jump from Bomb to Geryu core is not as bad as Gyoro > Bomb. Basically, if you have good SSR+ units, you can still compete against Geryu core with Bomb core. In fact, the latest SSR+ Atomic Samurai already starts to counter Geryu core by reducing the unyielding chances.
  • We won’t know when Bomb will return if you miss this, so this core may never return if you change your mind in the future

Why you may not want to pull:

  • If you already have him (duh!)
  • You want to focus and go all in on SSR+ units (meaning planning to Awaken lv2 SSR+MB perhaps), and you need a TON of BTs to do that
  • You don’t really care for Hero side and focus more on Monster team
  • You prefer to skip Bomb and wait for Geryu core

If you manage to draw in less than 50 draws, it’s advisable to stop and save up for the next LSSR.
If you draw between 50 and 150, then it’s up to you whether you want to max draw for duplicate shards.
If you draw at around 150, then you should continue and max draw for shards since you’re already so near 180.


Bomb’s fighting style can be considered similar to the Nanto Sei Ken martial art from the Fist of the North Star series since it involves cutting opponents into pieces with bare hands.
