The BLU-82, also known as the Daisy Cutter, is a 15,000lb or 6800kg conventional bomb. It is not a FAEB (Fuel-Air Explosive Bomb). It is just a supersized version of a run-of-the-mill bomb. It is effective against all targets except bunkers and viaduct bridges.

The Daisy Cutter has a very large blast radius and high damage when compared to early game airstrikes and is a predecessor to the MOAB. It has a random falling debris glitch, similar to but less noticeable than the MOAB's.

Daisy Cutter munitions can be found rarely but randomly spawning near Allied Nations' HVTs and Target Buildings.


Real LifeEdit

The Daisy Cutter is the nickname given to the BLU-82B/C-130 weapon system under the program "Commando Vault." It is designed to flatten forests into a helicopter landing zone during the Vietnam War and more recently Afghanistan.


  • The skinny extension is actually the fuse igniter. By keeping the bomb 38 inches above the ground, the splash damage goes outward, rather than digging itself into a crater and not making an effective explosion.
  • This can be found out on the battlefield and can be taken to the PMC. However, it's extremely rare.
  • The Daisy Cutter was retired in 2008 (Mercs 2 is set in 2010) and replaced with the more powerful MOAB.
