Explosives are a group of items that can explode. They are to be handled with great care. They can be detonated through various means: detonation (detonator, weapon shells), physical shock (if thrown, impacted, or in a weapon shell), water, or fire, or simply self deterioration.
Storage[edit | edit source]
While explosives are dangerous, they can be safely stored safer. Loose explosives are at risk at being detonated from hard impacts. Some containers are waterproof, it is recommended to store water reactive materials in those when not in use. There is no protection against fire.
