Ion Detonator.png

The Ion Detonator is a Furon's take on a grenade lancher, it lobs a plasmatic Ion Bomb, in which the lob can be charged, called 'Detonators'. These bombs either explode within approximately ten seconds or can be detonated remotely at will. It is one of the strongest weapons in Crypto's Arsenal, able to take out most vehicles with a single Detonator. Be aware however, the explosion can damage Crypto if he's inside the blast radius for most games. Its upgrades consist of increases to damage, blast radius, and ammo capacity. for most versions of this gun.

  • Upgrade 1: Increased ammo capacity
  • Upgrade 2: Increased area of effect
  • Upgrade 3: Increased ammo capacity and damage


The second version, obtained in DAH! 2, ID-69 comes with the smallest max ammo at 8 bombs when fully upgraded. It damages Crypto than any other model, taking out approximately 3/4 of his shield with a blast detonated near him. Since the Blisk were a threat in the second game, ID-69 can have it's effectivity against the Blisk upgraded. Otherwise, ID-69 is identical to its predecessor.

  • Ion Disruption Coils: Increases Detonator damage
    • Crab Radiation Dampener: Detonators are effective against the Blisk
  • Ion Storage Beta: Increases Detonator capacity to 4
    • Ion Storage Gamma: Increases Detonator capacity to 6
      • Ion Storage Thetan: Increases Detonator capacity to 8


Appearing in Destroy all Humans! Big Willy Unleashed, ID-75 is the first of its models to not stun Crypto, Its ammo capacity maxes out at 10. It has a strange metal clang sound when the gun is fired, suggesting the gun is fired in a more primitive way.

    • Ion Containment Torus: Increase Ion Detonator capacity to 10

    • Enhanced Ion Containment 2: Further increases Detonator ammo capacity
      • Enhanced Ion Containment 3: Increases Detonator ammo capacity to maximum
  • Ion Disruptor coils 1: Increases Detonator damage radius
    • Ion Disruptor coils 2: Increases Detonator damage radius to maximum
  • Ion Array 1: Detonation creates 1 additional Detonator
    • Ion Array 2: Detonation creates 2 additional Detonators
      • Ion Array 3: Detonation creates 3 additional Detonators
