It doesn't mention it, but I was testing the bombs and APPARENTLY: They do more damage if the bomb hits DIRECTLY the target. Or certain parts, like head. Do more damage the closer you are to target. Maybe due to the parabolic trajectory of bomb/urn.

most likely due to damage explosion fall off. would be interesting if the fall off point was your neck/head but it makes sense
