C-4 is an explosive available in the utility slot of most non-MAX infantry classes, barring the Infiltrator. C-4 is thrown a short distance while equipped and can be detonated by the player at any time, or blown up through damage.

Purchasing C-4 for a class will not unlock it for any other class, similar to Anti-Personnel Explosives. The certification costs are identical for all classes.

C-4 can be safely disarmed using a Nano-Armor Kit, rewarding the diffusing Engineer with XP and removing the explosive without a detonation

To use C-4, use your Optics hotkey (Template-RMB) to throw a brick, and then your Fire hotkey (Template-LMB) to detonate it. Pressing the button will detonate all C-4 that you have deployed. If you respawn after placing C-4, all placed bricks will despawn.


Level Cost Description
1 200 Icon resource certpoints 25x25 C-4 Explosives are capable of incredible damage to infantry and vehicles alike.
2 500 Icon resource certpoints 25x25 Increases C-4 Capacity to 2.

Ribbons and MedalsEdit

With any explosive, it is possible to get both Ribbons and Medals. Each Ribbon is a standard reward for achieving a set amount of kills with an explosive. Medals relate to how many overall kills you have with the explosive.
