Unlike anti-PC network weapons like the TCP/IP sniper rifle or firewall piercing weapons such as the UDP rocket launcher, the ICMP bouncing bomb is a strategic WAN weapon. By striking a router dam at the precise angle, the ICMP bouncing bomb can release an ICMP packet flood. The 5 kiloton tactical warhead determines range to target by using pings, then issues a ping -f. The 15 megaton strategic warhead uses tin foil and forged headers to foil ECM, then explodes a MIL-SPEC anti-router device with christmas tree packet armaments.

Both are banned by the IETF Berne Convention.
