C4 is shit.

Postby BeeSting12 » Sun May 10, 2020 3:57 am #561247

Imagine paying 1 TC for something that can't even blow open an airlock when you can buy a Syndicate toolbox for the same price and open said airlock faster. C4 needs to be buffed to actually explode airlocks since everyone in support of the emag nerf claimed ops have C4 which is DEFINITELY a """viable""" alternative.

Never mind it doesn't even crit people. I think most who supported the emag nerf didn't realize how bad C4 is.

Remove it from uplink and just make it craftable as nonantag using rdx and some other chemicals it's not like it's that strong anyways and RDX needs a purpose to serve.

that's what you get nerds

You removed the iconic item from ss13 due to some hurdur removal urge.
Buy a esword and stop complaining, everyone who ever has used knows c4 is effectively fireworks instead of a working demolition charge.
I don't get why community didn't ree the fuck out about it other than to epicly troll themselves.

so?? youre telling me i have to wait 10 seconds for it to explode just so i can start hitting it with an esword anyway? i may as well buy the esword then.

stop telling me what to buy instead of C4, i agree all these items are superior. i want c4 to be buffed, not to buy different items.

X-4 can't blow airlocks either. At this point both C-4 and X-4 are code bloat with how useless they are.

"Hey, ever since we acted retarded and fucked emags, I tried using c4 to destroy airlocks however it isn't worki-"

"alright so you wanna do is just wrench the assembly down/esword the assembly down/esword the airlock/detonate the wall next to the airlock/get a toolbox and very carefully turn a wall into a false wall/put c4 on your yourself then run into the door/ahelp for assistance/shoot the door with a .50 cal sniper rifle after you c4 it/trade in favors with the clown so that he can hack the door for you/hack the door open then c4 it/insert bullshit excuse of a plan here/code it so that c4 can actually destroy the doo- Actually, wait, no, don't do that one."

damn bruhs you really did it. you solved their problem. i don't know what these people would have done without your golden wisdom on what to do when c4 doesn't work properly as they expected.

Yeah you can wait 10 seconds if you want or you can do the sensible thing and detonate it with a remote signaler but c4 is so weak and badly priced why not just move it out of the uplink and make it something craftable with complicated chemistry.

This. If I am paying 1TC for something then I expect it to work as advertised, otherwise why have it? Let’s review the Syndicate toolbox, an item worth the same amount and has a similar purpose.

Syndicate Toolbox: Can open any door with a small amount of skill, can be used as many times as you want. The only way to stop it is if the door is bolted and depowered. Only disadvantage is it opens a tgui window and requires your attention while doing it. Also requires a minimal amount of preparation. Literally the same cost and according to people in this thread, you need the tools from it to finish the job C4 failed at.

Meanwhile, C4 should theoretically be a one time use item with the advantage being it’s a fire and forget item, meaning you can place it and then shoot back at enemies while waiting for it to blow. Another potential advantage is the lack of warning for enemies, it’s quiet until it explodes. Instead, after the 10 second wait (unless you signal it), you have to spend just as much time as you would hacking the door on breaking whats left of it. Meanwhile the enemies are noticing you wailing on the door, which removes any advantage C4 might have had over the toolbox.

Maybe crowbarring assemblies could make the door visually open and passable? Additionally, doors reduced to assembly by explosives could automatically be placed in open mode.

Shitposts aside, this is infinitely more better than just "ok, here's how to make c4 work while ignoring the problem entirely" suggestions. Even if they come from the right place in the heart, that shit really isn't helpful since it can just be countered with "then why the fuck did I use c4?"

edit: however there is now a new problem if that was merged - the damage. I didn't consider it at first however the explosive WOULD now be more effective in general. I guess the alternative is snowflake code for doors however eeeeeeeh I dunno about the damage boost.

syndies got a jaws of life like the CE has, but I'm okay with you buffing c4

Although I thought it was x4 that destroyed doors.

It might be more interesting to add a specific shaped charge kit that blows doors open (as soon as you slap it on) and sends the door flying across the room hitting anyone behind it.

Nukeops only though.

Yea I actually had the Syndicate jaws of life on the ops round I played but they can’t be used on bolted doors. I literally had three different breaching tools (airlock override card, C4, and the jaws of life) and I got fucked by a bolted door because I was relying on the C4 to handle those.

Also I thought of the shaped charges idea oranges mentioned earlier. Meteor shot already does that but that would be really cool to have.

That's not a fix that's making c4 into minibombs. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to work out that giving traitors a 1tc gib bomb is a bad idea. And you can set it up as a bomb. I was literally watching a guy do that the other night.

I think c4 blowing up doors is very reasonable. Having to put it on the stronger wall to get in faster feels dumb, even if there are others ways to hack a door.

It is mostly an issue of generalization of airlock destruction, I think airlocks being destroyed by explosions not leaving an assembly is fine.

Okay real talk, when people are saying 'destroy doors', do you mean it isn't being destroyed into wreckage, the thing you can wrench up and move? Like, it's not doing enough damage to the airlock to reach that point? Because when I have been using c4 on airlocks, it'll leave a wreckage which I can then move.

That wreckage is dodging the explosion because it spawns after the explosion has occurred.

They mean destroy doors as in blow up the door and don't leave behind a door assembly (the wreckage)

Alternatively make door assemblies non dense.

It's a blown up door, it should be easy to get past it, lots of other unsecured machinery is also not dense. Delaying destroying the door by a tiny fraction isn't that relevant any way. This way the visual effect is maintained while solving the issue in this thread.
