Sly Cooper Technical Wiki

Smoke Bomb is a power-up that appears in final builds of Sly 2: Band of Thieves and Sly 3: Honor Among Thieves, as well as in the August 2 2005 build.


The Smoke Bomb can be used to quickly obscure guards' visions for a short period of time. It can be assigned to and triggered with L1, L2, or R2.

Sly 2[]

Final builds

All final builds of Sly 2 have Sly tap the end of his cane on the ground, releasing a cloud of smoke. This requires Sly to be static in order for it to be used.

Sly 3[]

August 2 2005 build

This power-up is referred to as Ninja Ball in this build's Debug Menu. This build also does not have any animation for Sly when the smoke bomb is deployed. It can be used when Sly is in motion.

Final builds

Final builds of Sly 3 have Sly throw down a bomb when stationary and while during movement; however, Sly can continue walking or running while deploying a smoke bomb.
