The Virus Bomb COB created by Steve Dismukes of Fig's Tree injects a single explosive device into the hand. This device is intended to spread the appropriate disease to any and all nearby creatures. For something a little more specific, see Virus Injections, also by Steve Dismukes.
On activating, the device is armed (indicated by a flashing red light). Unless deactivated, it will detonate in approximately 10 seconds (100 ticks). A steady green light indicates that the device has been deactivated. On detonation, the appropriate disease will be spread to all creatures nearby (within earshot of the explosion), and the device will be destroyed.
