Overview[edit | edit source]
The C4 Charge is one of the explosives in ARK: Survival Evolved. It sticks to whatever it is thrown at, including creatures and players, and is detonated using the C4 Remote Detonator. It cannot stick to platforms or anything built on platforms (this includes the raft as it is considered a platform).
Damage[edit | edit source]
The charge deals 1500 damage to a creature without a saddle.
List of explosive damage versus various materials as of Patch 255:
|Improvised Explosive Device (pair)||*||7875||**||**||**|
|Rocket Propelled Grenade||*||7350||*||2205||596|
* The damage is greater than the health-points of structures of that material
** IEDs are currently just about impossible to place on stone, metal, or Tek structures.
Notes[edit | edit source]
- A maximum of 50 C4 Charges can be placed at any given time. When more than 50 charges are placed, any additional charges will cause the oldest to disappear.
- Metal doors can be destroyed with exactly 2 C4 Charges. Maximum damage is achieved by placing and detonating one charge at a time.
- It is possible to attach C4s to Dinos. (You can make dive bombers by attaching C4 to Dimorphs and whistle "Attack This Target" to destroy everything with ease). This was nerfed in recent patches; any flyers with c4 attached will move extremely slowly.
- C4 Can be activated with the remote in a Distance of 50 Foundations Long.
