It would really suck to have to take an entire minute to reach the top. What I'm wondering is, how much C4 would it take to launch an M1 Abrahms 50m vertically in game and irl.


You want to give it enough kinetic energy so that at the top of the arc when speed reaches 0, it has 50m of gravitational potential energy. Gravitational potential energy = mass * g * height = 63500kg * 9.8 m/s^2 * 50m = 31,115,000J = 31MJ.

Going by Wikipedia, 1g of TNT release about 4.1KJ on explosion, so it would need at least 7.6Kg of TNT. The relative effectiveness of C-4 is 1.34 (I may be abusing this value?) so it would need at least 5.7Kg of C-4.

It'll need more than that, because this assumes the explosion somehow magically transferred ALL of its energy into kinetic energy of the tank, rather than shockwave out the sides/heat/sound/deformation of the tank/whatever else I've forgotten.

I was expecting like hundreds of pounds of C4 to send it that high instead of 5.7kg. I also figured that the thing would be shreaded in real life but this is assuming it magically stays in one piece. So the next part is, how much C4 in game will send it that high?

My guess is... 3? I think in BF3 it was possible

I assume the BF3 trick of stacking mines still works in BF4. It would take more effort though due to every engineer only being able to deploy 3 mines without any field upgrade progress. I know for a fact that C4:ing jetskiis across maps is very doable.

There is also this .

Things people said

And reading Youtube comments still gives me Turbo Cancer.

It really is quite frustrating when Helen Keller sets up her LMG in the only doorway in/out of an area.

What kind of question is that? Since when is cheese ever a bad idea?

Hardline is a fun and sometimes silly Cops and Robbers sorta thing and I think that's great. Or it would be if it didn't suck.

There's no way those wooden bridges on Dragon Pass can hold a tank crossing them. Although that map does have the indestructible 1m tall bushes.

Slightly related: can someone tell me what has more blast impulse between C4, M15s and M2s (per piece)?

@Miffyli

How do you do it?

Passive Spotting is the future!

With this, I'll rid MGO3 of infestation. Sans bad gameplay MGO3 will be torn asunder. And then it shall be free. People will suffer, of course - a phantom pain.

Reddit and Konami will rewrite the records... And I will be demonized in human memory. But... The thirst for good gameplay that I have planted will infest MGO3. No one can stop it now. The Rebalance Mod will unleash that thirst unto the future.

in bc2 and bf3 the land mines where the strongest,but it looks like this time the c4 is the strongest.
