|For a cross-game overview of this perk, see Demolition Expert.|
The perk increases the damage dealt by all explosions by 20% with the first rank, with subsequent ranks each adding 10%, up to a maximum of 60% with rank five. It affects most thrown grenades, mines, explosive weapons and weapons with the Explosive legendary effect. However, it only affects the primary damage type of a weapon. For example, a grenade that deals two types of damage only has its primary damage increased. This also means the perk does not affect the damage of pulse mines and pulse grenades, as they only deal secondary energy damage.
‡ With explosive arrows only
The perk needs to be equipped and active in order to craft certain types of explosives, as well as the laser tripwire.
