"The marines named these ones "kaboomers". The acid spit is bad enough, but just wait until they explode."

- Lieutenant Rosa Morales(src)

The kaboomer is an upgraded version of the baneling. It was part of the infestation of the planet Meinhoff during the Second Great War.[1]

During the End War, they appeared on a fringe Terran Dominion colony, and allied commanders that were called in had to face them.[2]

Game Unit[edit | edit source]

Left 2 Die[edit | edit source]

The kaboomer appears in the multiplayer map "Left 2 Die". It is a far slower, larger and more effective version of the baneling. While the baneling is a small and fast suicide unit, the kaboomer is capable of dishing out considerable damage to bunkers or other defenses in the form of an acid spew before dying.

Abilities[edit | edit source]

The kaboomer's abilities include spewing acid continuously (especially effective against buildings), saturating an area with acid (causing area of effect damage in the targeted radius), and exploding in a similar way to a baneling, although the area and damage are greatly increased.

Co-op Missions[edit | edit source]

Kaboomers appear as special infested on the "Dead of Night" mission in Co-op Missions. They are slow moving area of effect attackers. Kaboomers also deal area of effect damage when killed.[2]

Trivia[edit | edit source]

As Left 2 Die is based on Left 4 Dead, the kaboomer is likely based on the Boomer or the Spitter.
