Price/Power (0/5)
This was almost at the borderline of a "I wouldn't totally trash on this weapon" point until I read the "Once Per Battle" line- now all bets are off.

Countermeasures (0/5)
This is a pretty uncommon icon distribution but with it being once per battle what exactly is there to fear?

Alternatives Upgrades or Downgrades
Carved Qasalan Blowgun does this and more- but does it every single turn.

Other Points

Final Thoughts
Perhaps if you drink it instead of using it in the battledome it will like, boost your strength or something. That would explain why this weapon is such trash- we are using it wrong. Ha.

Price/power (0/5): A once-per-battle bomb should not be so weak, nor cost so much.

Tactical (0/5): Icons aren't particularly easy to block, but the obvious weakness is that plenty of cheaper weapons do more damage and can be used every turn. The Ridiculously Heavy Battle Hammer and the Scroll of Ultranova are your most obvious choices, though the Carved Qasalan Blowgun is also an option (and a direct upgrade).

Bonus (1/1): I suppose I can't give this a 0, no matter how pointless it is...

Closing remarks: There is a fine line between bravery and stupidity. Get one of the aforementioned weapons instead.
