Game of origin: Mega Man 11

Block Dropper (originally referred to as "Brick Drop" in Mega Man Maker) is Block Man's weapon from Mega Man 11. This weapon was added in Version 1.2.0 to celebrate Mega Man's 30th anniversary and the announcement of Mega Man 11. Its ammo is 28 uses with a full bar, buffed from Mega Man 11's 14 uses.

When used, four cyan brick blocks fall from the top of the screen in front of the player. The blocks have a small distance between them. While being formed, the blocks remain on the top for a short time before falling and will pass through terrain until it reaches a target. If one of the blocks fall over an enemy or a Weapon Block, it will crash over it, whether the block successfully destroys its target or not. This contrasts the Block Dropper with most weapons, which will bounce off if they hit a target immune to them.

Trivia

  • This weapon was added before its official name was revealed. Hence why it was originally called Brick Drop as that was what it was believed to be called prior to being officially announced. It was changed to its official name in 1.4.0.
    • Its icon was also changed from it's original appearance SprWeaponIconsColor 41.png to be more like the one in Mega Man 11 BlockDropperIcon.png in 1.5.0.
  • The 8-bit sprites of the weapon were designed by Gaem.

Glitches

  • Prior to 1.5.4, level objects that rejected attacks made the Block Dropper bricks bounce off. This was changed in that version.
