Block Dropper is Block Man's signature weapon, originating from Mega Man 11. It is featured in Mega Man Maker as of version 1.2.0.

It lets the user summon a row of four bricks near the top of the screen three tiles away that quickly fall straight down. These bricks cannot be deflected, and will crumble upon impact with an enemy or destructible object regardless of whether or not damage as dealt. If the blocks are spawned underwater, they will fall slower. If used while facing near the screen's edge (such as in a connected horizontal section), fewer blocks will be spawned. Picketman will be insatntly defeated by Block Dropper.

Trivia

  • Block Dropper was added to Mega Man Maker to celebrate the announcement of the then-upcoming Mega Man 11. Before its official name was revealed, it was called Brick Drop, and it had a different weapon icon prior to version 1.6.0.
  • Despite being a throwing weapon, Block Dropper could be used while walking in Mega Man 11. This was changed in Mega Man Maker so as to be consistent with similar weapons, but it's still possible to move while firing if the user is on icy tiles.
