A splash weapon is a ranged weapon
that breaks apart on impact, splashing or scattering its contents over its target and nearby creatures or objects. Most splash weapons
consist of liquids in breakable containers.
To attack with a splash weapon, make a ranged touch attack
against the target. Thrown weapons
require no weapon proficiency, so characters don't take the -4 nonproficient penalty. A hit deals direct hit damage
to the target and splash damage
to all other creatures within 5 feet of the target.
A character can instead target a specific 5-foot square, including a square occupied by a creature. Use the rules for thrown explosives
. However, if a character targets a square, creatures within 5 feet are dealt the splash damage
, and the direct hit damage
is not dealt to any creature.
If the character misses the target (whether aiming at a creature or a square), check to see where the weapon
lands, using the rules for thrown explosives
. After determining where the object landed, it deals splash damage
to all creatures within 5 feet.
