frankly c4 is either loved or hated by most people. From my play time i noticed 2 things people with c4 have a huge advantage in the game. people with out are frequent targets of players with c4 because of no way to retaliate.this creates a imbalance.
its not that c4 is not found in rad towns its quite easily found. its the uber rare explosives recipe that is the problem. once some one has this recipe they have a huge advantage.
here are my thoughts a lot of people would call for the removal of explosives recipe to begin with. frankly i think its just too rare of a drop.
more people have the recipe means more predators i know this. but those predators are more likely to fight each other for dominance.
instead of preying on the weak.
