About[edit | edit source]
The Satchel Charge is a basic utility tool only used by the Driller. It can be thrown onto the ground by pressing the fire key, where it will beep loudly. The Satchel Charge can be detonated by pressing the fire key again. Only one Satchel Charge can be placed at a time.
Satchel Charges deal immense damage in a wide radius, with just one unit being more than capable of annihilating everything caught in the blast. With the right mods, this weapon's damage can climb to an astounding 875 damage. This makes it more than capable of instantly killing virtually any target except the largest foes in the game, such as Glyphid Dreadnoughts.
The Satchel Charge delivers a much more focused detonation than other explosives, always clearing rock in a smooth and consistent manner (which can be upgraded). For this reason it has a niche use for destroying rocks holding heavy objects such as Aquarq and Jadiz, though due to the limited count of charges this is not advised unless there really is no other option.
Modifications[edit | edit source]
There are four tiers and each tier has one to three upgrades, only one upgrade can be equipped per tier.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- The Satchel Charge used to be available to both the Gunner and the Driller, but this was removed in Update 19 as the Gunner had it replaced with the Shield Generator.
