    By the time I finished all the bombs in the main game, I had defused 31 total.

    The easiest way I found to defuse the last 69 was to start up the mission 1.3, "The First Bomb" and quickly defuse that. It took anywhere from 7 to 40 seconds each time, for about an hour and a half for grinding.

    Every bomb will be randomized to an extent. They will all have a wire module, a button module, and a keypad module, but the solution is generally different each time. Just have the manual pulled up (even though that's cheating laugh), and use the solutions on there to solve the bomb. After you defuse a few, you'll catch onto patterns and will be able to solve them even faster.

    LibelluleGinoI can confirm the tracker is buggy. I noticed it doesn't progress for me when I'm downloading something.

    KinectKid333I have not been getting any progress on the tracker at all. Completed the entire game and still at 0%, so hopefully it's just tracking in the background. I haven't been counting how many I've actually done but I've done at least every bomb once (32) and at least another 40 or so more, so we'll see where I'm at once I do another 28.

    The quickest way to complete this is beating 1.3, "The First Bomb", over and over again.

    It always has the same three modules: Wires, The Button, and Keypads.

    Here is a cheat sheet with what you need to beat this as quickly as possible:

    It's a condensed version of the 'Pocket Manual' by Miszelek:

    For The Button, "hold" means hold down The Button and release according to the colour of the indicator to its right; "release" means tap and release.

    If you play on Series X/S or have a solid state harddrive, you should be able to average 45 seconds per level (including loading screens). If you've already finished the story levels, you should get the roughly 70 plays you need in about 50 minutes.

    The tracker doesn't update, but you can see your progress at the Game Info Hub on your profile:

    Use this on a second monitor/Phone or Tablet to Self Solve Bomb 1.3 over and over till you get 100 Defuses.
