Here are some tips for using the item.

  • Most players make the mistake of using the smoke bomb without thinking about the aftermath of it. It is necessary that you use smoke bombs where there is a platform nearby so you can grapple do it. 
  • By using the smoke bomb, your hero will automatically use the grappling hook to flee away from the enemies. 
  • So if the smoke bomb button is not working, it is most likely due to the fact that there is no platform nearby to grapple onto. 
  • Also, it is important that all the enemies nearby are alerted toward your character. This tactic can be useful to blind enemies and give you some time to get away from them. 
  • It Is also important to check the icon for the grappling hook whenever you are thinking of using a smoke bomb in combat. Doing so will let you know if there is a platform that you can grab and jump on.
