whats a good knex bomb? Answered

i am having a knex war with all my friends and i need a grenade or bomb that explodes and hurt, doesn't take forever to make, and dosent use more than 40 pieces. please help


A bundle of Grey/Black Rods Tied/Banded around a small to mid-size (1 kilogram is too much) charge of Semtex formed into a cylinder approximately 7 inches in length. The Grey rods should overhang the charge enough to enclose the detonator, which may be impact, time, or remote fired. I would not recommend using a proximity fired charge as they are fairly indiscriminate, though lone operatives often favor them. Hope this helps.

https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-War-Bomb/ is a great bomb,especially for protecting a base,but is somewhat piece using.Another high piece count bomb is Viccie.B.1993's https://www.instructables.com/id/The-Shrapnel-Spreader-KTB-Knex-Time-Bomb/ which is better for tactical use in wars.It depends on what it's for, really.As for conservative of pieces,I recommend<--(spelling?) try one of the "side slide"patterns,like https://www.instructables.com/id/Knex-bomb-Ground-Sweeper/.And you can never go wrong with splodies:https://www.instructables.com/id/-Splodies/.It all pretty much depends.
