Explosives are Items that can explode, damaging their surroundings. They can be detonated through various means such as Fire, or Water.
Certain explosives can be crafted with Quality levels that improve some of their statistics. The Mechanic talent "Demolitions Expert" adds +1 quality level to explosive compounds, allowing the creation of masterworks.

Storage

While explosives are dangerous, some can be safely stored.

Against Water

Some explosives can be triggered by water.
Certain Containers are waterproof and it is recommended to store water-sensitive explosives in them.

Against Impacts

Some types of loose explosives are at risk at being detonated from hard impacts.
All containers prevent impacts from having an effect on explosives inside.

Against Fire

Some explosives can be triggered by fire.
They will be safe inside a Toolbelt, assuming they can fit.
