|Max. Throw Range||
|Damage vs. Buildings||
Used from World War II onwards for knocking out fortifications and obstructions, they can range from a stick of dynamite stuck in a satchel to purpose-built devices filled with the far more potent C-4. They are more than capable of vaporizing an infected horde or a rival compound's defenses, as well as any unfortunate survivors in the blast radius. Use with extreme caution.
Can be made with the right materials and knowledge.
How to obtainEdit
- Level 15 Improvised Explosives can be crafted using 2 Explosive Charges, 1 Detonator, 5 Tape, 5 Copper Wires and 10 Electronic Scrap at a Level 6+ Gear Bench for 7 .
When thrown by right clicking anywhere, then clicking on the desired target, an Explosive Charge will explode after a period of time, causing damage to anything within its Effective Range (including friendly survivors).
It is characterized by an extremely high damage versus structures and a large effective range. However, it takes a long time to detonate, giving enemies time to withdraw. Survivors must also get very close before they can deploy it.
