The Acid Detonator was a glove that launched very powerful acidic bombs. According to in-game information it was the military grade version of the Acid Bomb Glove. The main visual difference between the Acid Bomb Glove and the Acid Detonator was that it used purple instead of green colored acid..
The bombs fired by the Acid Detonator also had two spikes and the acid from the bombs stuck to enemies so that they couldn't move. They were useful for damaging groups of enemies.
