Thing type 305, Explosion Ring, is a Match weapon that, when colliding with a wall or a solid Object, explodes and hits any players nearby. It can be fired at a rate of approximately 0.66 rings per second. Knuckles can fire it at a rate of 1 ring per second. This weapon can cause anywhere from medium knockback to a great deal of knockback when hitting another player, depending on how close the enemy player was to the blast. 5 shots are immediately granted upon pickup.

Picking up an Explosion Ring on the map will not allow the player to fire it unless the player has picked up the Explosion Ring Panel previously. However, the ammo granted will be retained (provided the player does not drop it) and will carry over when the player picks up the panel. This weapon will reach its maximum capacity at 50 shots.

Giving an Explosion Ring the Ambush flag will make it float 24 fracunits above the ground. All Explosion Rings that are not already floating above the ground due to Z offsets should have this flag because items that do not float are difficult to collect and look as if they were stuck in the floor. The flag stacks on top of the Thing's regular height, allowing Explosion Rings to be a total of 4119 fracunits above the ground at maximum.
