“When you're deep in enemy territory, you just start chucking grenades and hope for the best. All Explosives have a 25% larger area of effect when they detonate.”— In-game description.
All Explosives have a 25% larger area of effect when they detonate.
- The perk improves the usefulness of cheap and plentiful explosives, like dynamite and powder charges, which have a comparatively small blast radius.
- The Hit the Deck, Adamantium Skeleton and/or the Tough Guy perks synergize well with the increased radius that this perk brings, as the risk of self-inflicted damage increases.
- The Heave Ho! perk can likewise be helpful in increasing the range when utilizing launchers, e. g. a Fat Man with Big Kid ammunition.
Behind the scenes
The term "splash damage" is commonly used within video games to refer to damage that is dealt in an area around a target proportional to the distance to the target.
This perk is bugged, because it has no set value in the GECK.[verified]
- This issue has been resolved with the release of Patch 184.108.40.2062.
