Back when Smuggler's Run released, this was discussed a lot more - with that having been some time ago though, discussion kind of dropped down. No one really knew what to think.
Anyway. So, cluster bombs - the most expensive bomb type - have a much smaller blast radius than that of the ordinary bombs. The ordinary bomb's blasts aren't anything to write home about either, so these cluster bombs can often be dropped incredibly close to someone, and just do nothing.
I can't think of many explosives with that ineffective a blast radius. I'd guess a sticky bomb would kill from much further, and I'd be willing to bet a single shot of a Lazer's cannon gives a bigger blast than that.
Do you think it's broken in some way? Some kind of setting adjusted the wrong way? Or are they just supposed to be like this? Has anyone who can look deeper into the files and that kind of thing seen if there's anything that doesn't look right?
Its been a good few months now, with no changes. But then, there's a lot of broken stuff that's stayed for years. So it's kind of hard to say.
