Timed Explosive Charge

The Timed Explosive Charge, mostly knowns as C4, is an item often used when raiding other players. Once thrown, the charge will stick to walls, floors, doors and deployable items. Once attached to a target, the timed explosives will automatically detonate in a dependable and quick manner (in comparison to it's unreliable counterpart, the Satchel Charge). However, it does damage only to the structure it's attached to. If attached to a door, for example, it would destroy it without damaging the door frame or nearby walls. This item deals the most damage out of all explosive devices, and is the most ideal/useful for evicting your neighbors. It's important to protect this item from your enemies, as it can prove fatal once it's in the wrong hands.

If you get 2 C4 and you don't have the explosives Explosives bp you can recycle one of the C4 to get them.

To quickly throw another C4 put one in another slot on your toolbar. Switching hands is quicker than waiting for throwing animations.

If a Door Or Wall got less than 250 hp use a [url=https://rustlabs.com/item/rocket-launcher#tab=loot;sort=1,0,2;sort=3,1,0]Rocket Launcher[/url] Or [url=https://rustlabs.com/item/explosive-5.56-rifle-ammo]Explosive 5.56 Rifle Ammo[/url]

C4 does 275 damage to every type of wall.

With the Eye in the Sky update. You can put the C4 into radio mode. In this mode you set the frequency to 0-9999 and the next time you use it your C4 will only explode if you lock it on the surface, wait a 10 second delay and send a signal through the radio transmitter to that frequency - you can make an explosion and be anywhere. You can even without entering the game through Rust +. Keep in mind - C4 left on the surface can be picked up by anyone. Also, if C4 is on the surface in a place where there is no building privilege, it will disappear after 24 hours.

C4 is most sulfur effiecent raiding tool. However if wall is less than 250 finish it off with expolisive.

You now can use a RF broadcaster to blow up this thing: just write an RF frequency in C4 properties in your inventory and use a RF broadcaster on the same frequency

A C4 costs more sulfer to craft then any other item in the game so never recycle one (if you can help it) and always try to tech tree it rather than researching it

If you research every WB3 item except C4, you can get C4 blueprint with random research, with 500 more scrap you won't waste your C4.
