The Homie is a Curve-type ARMS weapon with the Explosion attribute.

Description[edit]

Appearance[edit]

The Homie is shaped like a curved cartoonish rocket, with a navy-blue base, a silver underbelly, and four bright red fins. It has beady yellow eyes on its front that are half-closed. When it is charged, its eyes turn red and the eyelids shift to appear angry.

Function[edit]

"Not big on aiming? These auto-targeting ARMS are for you! They fly and explode all on their own. Why mess around with controls? Delegate!"
Official Description


  • Unlike other ARMS, which the player can curve manually, the Homie will fly forward a short distance before automatically curving towards the targeted opponent's current location when used.
  • When it is charged and it collides with a fighter or other surface, it will explode a moment later, dealing additional damage.
  • A Rush will increase the weight class of the projectiles to Heavy for the duration of the attack.
