Plastic Explosives (5e Equipment)

From D&D Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Plastic explosives, also called "plastique" are high explosives which have been mixed with plasticizing agents, making the resulting explosive pliable and shapeable like putty. Plastic explosives are very stable, and can only be set off by a detonator or another explosion. They are odorless and do not give off fumes, making them difficult to detect. The most famous variety of plastic explosives is C4, although others exist and use the same statistics. As they are easy to work with and highly destructive, plastic explosives are commonly used in both military demolition jobs and terrorist bombings. Plastic explosives typically come in 1 0.5 ¼ lb. blocks sheathed in olive plastic, with a self-adhesive sticky side for placement.

Plastic explosives can be placed as an action, and detonated with a press of a remote detonator (an object interaction). Plastic explosives also explode on their own if they are caught within the radius of an explosion that does at least 10 points of bludgeoning damage. Each creature within 20 feet of a detonated plastic explosive must make a DC 17 Dexterity saving throw, taking 10d6 bludgeoning damage on a failed save, or half as much damage on a successful one. Each additional block of explosives increases the damage by 5d6 (to a maximum of 40d6), and the radius by 10 feet (to a maximum of 80 feet).
