A Depth Charge is the explosive item dropped from the helicopters (& Santa in the Christmas Wonderland.) in Hungry Shark Evolution. They deal 50 damage and have a high danger level. When entering water they slow down and are easy to dodge. Depth charges can only be eaten by a Megalodon or better. Otherwise the depth charge will explode & damage the shark. Lava Baby can protect the shark against them, the Flak Jacket also protects the shark from depth charges depending on how many are bought with gold (up to a maximum of 10) They can be extremely dangerous when the shark is on land. Any shark weaker than the Megalodon should just escape & swim away from the depth charges & the helicopter altogether, as the helicopter can be deadly to the smaller sharks. As of newer updates, the helicopter spawns at higher altitudes and no longer appears at a low enough altitude to drop Depth Charges on smaller sharks.
