Crash holding a Boom Berry in Snow Go.

Boom Berries are purple, raspberry-like berries introduced in Crash Bandicoot: On the Run!, used as a projectile by the player. There are a few different varieties of boom berries in the game based on each of its four elements. They are only level mechanics, and cannot be taken out of a level or put in the silo like other items.


Purple Boom Berry[]

"Purple Boom Berries smash crates and trigger buttons ahead of you or in different lanes."

Purple Boom Berries have no special properties to speak of, only fulfilling their basic purpose of breaking crates and detonating explosives. They can be picked up and carried indefinitely, and thrown to destroy crates and defeat enemies. They can only be destroyed by blowing up TNT or Nitro Crates, falling into pits, or allowing them to bounce behind the player so it's out of reach.

Boom Berries are also used by Fake Crash, Fake Coco and N. Tropy as weapons during their boss fights. They take on a lighter, pinkish colour when thrown by enemies to signify that they are dangerous and cannot be caught.
