A brick of Composition-4 plastic explosive composed of four M112 demolition blocks wired to a detonator.
Update #42 (Season 7 - Update 7.3)
C4 is an interesting and powerful new tool that gives players new ways to strategically flush out timid opponents. With a massive 25 meter effective radius and damage that can penetrate cover, you’ll be wanting to run away when you hear this beeping brick of boom. A quick note about C4, we don’t intend this to be just another throwable. It has a pretty short range, but can be used to cut off enemy entry into a building or new zone, or as mentioned above can force enemies out of their safe positions.
C4 will start beeping and automatically detonate 16 seconds after being thrown
Detonation cannot be stopped or activated early
There is a warning LED on the C4 and audible beeping with increasing intensity, clearly audible inside the damage radius which warns you of the upcoming explosion
C4 sticks to most surfaces, including vehicles
It doesn’t stick to players
Effective damage radius is 25 metres, with a lethal damage radius of 15 meters
Damage extends vertically, but with slightly less range (lethal radius of 12.5 meters vertically)
The shockwave emitted from the explosion is so powerful it damages all enemies within its radius, even if they’re behind cover
Due to the weight of the C4 you can’t throw it far and you can’t carry many
Found as world loot on Erangel, Miramar, Vikendi and Sanhok
C4 will be added to Training Mode at a later date
