Spark Bolt

From Noita Wiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Spark Bolt is among the most basic projectile spells. This is one of the possible spells that a starting wand will be equipped with. It comes in trigger, double trigger, and timer varieties, each with increased mana drain. The Double Trigger variety also does a small amount of explosion damage.

The very weak damage is balanced by its very low mana drain and added critical chance, making this a choice spell for early builds and for wands with low cast delay/recharge times.


  • The Trigger and Double Trigger versions are very useful for delivering spells that can harm you to a safe distance away, assisted by their high speed and accuracy.
  • You can also experiment and combine them with various spells, like Chainsaw, for some interesting results.
  • Since the Double Trigger variant also has explosion damage, it will synergize well with explosion modifiers as their damage is amplified by its base explosion damage. If alone, the explosion from the Double Trigger variant is not friendly fire enabled and thus always safe to use.
  • Spark Bolt can be made infinite with the use of only one Reduce Lifetime.
  • Using Add Trigger on the Double Trigger version of this spell makes it function the same way that any other spell would; it only adds a trigger to the projectile itself and does not keep both or one of the original triggers. In other words, an Add Trigger combined with a Spark Bolt functions the same whether it is the Normal, Trigger, Double Trigger or Timer version as it removes any trigger or timer that is already on the spell.
  • This is currently the only spell in the game that has a Double Trigger version.


  • Before version 1.0, the first starter wand in New Game mode always spawned with Spark Bolt.
  • Firing Spark Bolt with Double Trigger emits a few particles of Magical Liquid.


On its own, Spark Bolt doesn't do much.
