Timed Explosive Charges are not to be confused with Explosives
The Timed Explosive Charge (commonly referred to as "C4") is a craftable explosive weapon that can be thrown onto walls, doors, or deployable items. Once a Timed Explosive Charge has been thrown, it will automatically arm itself and then detonate after 10 seconds. Players caught in the blast radius will be killed.
Due to its destructive power, the Timed Explosive Charge has proven to be an ideal method of entry in raids, where, if your opponents happen to be online, speed and precision are of the essence. (Although, a regular Rocket may be more effective in certain situations.)
One Timed Explosive Charge can be researched for 500 scrap.
