List of explosive damage versus various materials as of Patch 255:

Weapon/Structure Thatch Wood Stone Metal Tek
C4 Charge.png C4 Charge * 11813 * 3544 788
Grenade.png Grenade 788 788 1838 237 53
Improvised Explosive Device.png Improvised Explosive Device (pair) * 7875 ** ** **
Rocket Propelled Grenade.png Rocket Propelled Grenade * 7350 * 2205 596
Tek Rifle.png Tek Rifle 1260 536 294 29 185

* 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]

  • Cheaper than C4 Charge.png C4 Charge because it does not require Electronics, Hide, Fiber and uses 35 less Gunpowder, 15 less Crystals. However Rockets require 7 more Metal Ingots compared to C4 and takes 15 more Cementing Paste.
  • According to the Steam Forums, Rockets are more designed to be used against buildings than dinos. It can apparently be useful in caves against a flock of smaller dinos or can be used to enrage a giganotosaurus into dismounting its rider, but many users complain of unpredictable results when used against anything other than player-constructed objects.
