Composition 4 (C4), is a plastic explosive composed of RDX, plastic binder, plasticizer, and a marker chemical to identify its source. It is 1.34 times as explosive as TNT and has been used since the 1960s when it was developed. C4 is often used in breaching obstacles or demolition of large structures.

"Remote detonation C4 explosive."
— In-game description

Nitro Cell is a placeable explosive device featured in Tom Clancy's Rainbow Six Siege. The device is a simple block of C4 wired to an old mobile phone, all held together by duct tape. When placed, it can be detonated at any time, making it ideal for ambushes. It can be equipped by the Recruit and the Operators Mute, Pulse, Kapkan, Bandit, Valkyrie, and Mira.

Nitro Cells are also very useful for eliminating shielded attackers such as Montagne, Blitz, Fuze, or the Recruit as the device can be thrown behind them. This bypasses their defense and can potentially kill anyone behind them as well. Another feature is its ability to stick to objects, allowing for crafty placement (Such as above doorways) to catch Attackers off guard. Be aware that the act of pulling out a Nitro Cell makes an audible "rip" sound as the Operator pulls off the duct tape.

A placed Nitro Cell makes a small but audible beeping sound and has a visible red light. Observant Attackers can disable the device by shooting it with any type of weapon, causing it to disappear in a puff of harmless smoke. In addition to this, poor placement can lead to the cell being destroyed by Bandit's Shock Wire. Finally, IQ can reveal the location of any placed Nitro Cell by using her unique Electronics Detector.

Explosives Test & Comparison

Explosives Test & Comparison

A nitro cell detonation deals a maximum of 171 points of damage versus level 1 armor (144 vs. lvl. 2 & 126 vs. lvl. 3) at up to 2m distance. Damage drop off is rapid after this and falls to zero by 6m distance. They will heavily damage all players in their vicinity if not killing them outright, depending on where they detonate and how much health was left before the detonation occurred. Also, getting hit directly by the Nitro Cell deals 5 points of damage.
