Block Dropper (tentatively referred to as Brick Drop prior to version 1.4.0) is Block Man's weapon from Mega Man 11. It was added in version 1.2.0 to celebrate Mega Man's 30th anniversary and the announcement of Mega Man 11.[1]

When used, four cyan brick blocks fall from the top of the screen in front of the player. During their formation, the blocks remain on the top for a short time before falling. The blocks have a small distance between each of them and can pass through terrain. If one of the blocks fall over an enemy or a Weapon Block, the block(s) will break over it whether they successfully destroy the target or not. This is unlike most other weapon projectiles which deflect off assets immune to the projectile.

Since Block Dropper was added before its official name was revealed, the weapon was given the tentative name "Brick Drop" until it was given its actual name in Mega Man 11 in version 1.4.0. Block Dropper's weapon icon in 1.2.0 was a tridimensional block, but it was changed in 1.5.0 to more closely resemble its original icon. Prior to 1.6.0, Block Dropper took 1 bar of weapon energy per use. This was changed to 2 bars of weapon energy per use in 1.6.0 most likely to match Block Dropper's weapon energy use in Mega Man 11.

Glitches

  • Prior to 1.5.4, level objects immune to Block Dropper made the blocks bounce off instead of break.
