Ezio: "I need a simple but effective means of distraction."
Piri: "Then this is the bomb for you. It gives a nice loud burst, luring all soldiers within earshot right to the source. Have fun."
Piri Reis describing a cherry bomb to Ezio, 1511.[src]
Cherry bomb

A typical cherry bomb

Cherry bombs were explosives which detonated with a very loud bang, luring every guard within earshot.

History

16th century

During the early 1500s in Constantinople, Ezio Auditore da Firenze made cherry bombs using any shell or gunpowder type combined with sulfur.[1]

If Ezio detonated a cherry bomb in a correct place, it could also be used to create a conflict between patrols of Ottomans and Byzantine Templars. As such, the Ottoman Assassins made use of this to great effect in order to create distractions that could cover their infiltration or escape.[1]

18th century

The French Assassin Arno Dorian used cherry bombs in a similar manner during the late 18th century.[2]
