Timed Explosive Charges are not to be confused with Explosives!
The Timed Explosive Charge (commonly referred to as "C4" or "Satchel Charge") is a craftable explosive weapon that can be thrown on Walls, Doors and Deployable items. Once an Explosive Charge has been stuck to an object it will automatically arm itself. It will then take 10 seconds for the charge to detonate. The resulting explosion will deal significant structural damage to the targeted object. Players caught in the blast radius will be instantly killed.
Due to its destructive power, the Timed Explosive Charge has proven to be an ideal instrument of choice in raids, where, if your opponents happen to be online, speed and precision are of the essence. (Although regular Rockets may be more effective in certain situations.)
