We investigate a two-dimensional extended system showing chaotic and localized structures. We demonstrate the robust and stable existence of two types of exploding dissipative solitons. We show that the center of mass of asymmetric dissipative solitons undergoes a random walk despite the deterministic character of the underlying model. Since dissipative solitons are stable in two-dimensional systems we conjecture that our predictions can be tested in systems as diverse as nonlinear optics, parametric excitation of granular media and clay suspensions, and sheared electroconvection.
