Explosives are a items that can explode, damaging their surroundings. They can be detonated through various means: detonation (detonator, weapon shells), physical shock (if thrown, impacted, or in a weapon shell), water, fire, or simply deterioration. The explosive bricks, and the throwable grenades, can be crafted with Quality levels that improve both explosion radius and Explosion damage. The Mechanic Talent Demolitions Expert adds +1 quality level to explosives.

Storage

While explosives are dangerous, they can be safely stored. Some types of loose explosives are at risk at being detonated from hard impacts. Some containers are waterproof and it is recommended to store water reactive materials in those when not in use. There is no way to protect explosives from fires.

Crafted

These items are all water-safe.
