A Blow-Up Doll.

Blow-Up Dolls (Also referred to as "Blow-Up Tommys") are enemies introduced in Condemned 2: Bloodshot. They are small, hostile baby dolls that roam the Walker Doll Factory. When the string on their chest is pulled, they explode three seconds later, similar to a hand grenade. Prior to the release of Condemned 2, Blow-Up Dolls were frequently seen in images used to promote the game.

Overview[]

Blow-Up Dolls are heavily mutilated dolls that are poorly stitched together from multiple doll parts, though many pieces are too small. They have a smaller head attached to their right shoulder and various nails sticking out of their heads as well as small stumps for legs. When walking, their left arm swings around and their eyes glow orange.

Normally, Blow-Up Dolls walk very slowly. However, they will also crawl towards Ethan if he tries to sprint away. Their main attack is to walk up to someone, pull their string, and sit at the floor while they wait to explode. Anything within 5 feet of the explosion will take damage. It is possible to kick a blow-up doll to deactivate it. However, punching it will cause the doll to explode right away and may damage the player. It is possible for Ethan to pick up inactive dolls and use them as melee weapons, or throw them like grenades. These dolls are also used by the Doll Woman during the player's first encounter with her, and is highly likely they were created by her.

Trivia[]

  • If Ethan picks up a doll and blocks with it, the doll will look at him, and then cover its eyes, then uncover them, as if it is trying to play "peekaboo" with Ethan.
  • Blow-Up Dolls have the distinction of being both an enemy and a usable weapon in Condemned 2: Bloodshot.
  • When struck with a melee weapon while deactivated, the Blow-Up Doll will bleed or release a squirt of blood, suggesting that human parts may have been used in their construction.
