  • Reduced the RCE-Ratero Charge’s explosion radius from 4 M to 3 M, and its lethal range from 2 M to 1.5 M.

  • This change reduces the radius by only 25%. However, the surface covered by the RCE-Ratero Charge explosion is reduced by almost 50%, and the total volume of the explosion is reduced by more than 50%.
