Here’s our guide on how to get the C4 in Payday 2.

You can get them by unlocking the Shaped charge skill and converting the Trip mines into C4. But there are some prerequisites and steps to unlock it. They are as follows:

  • You need to be at least on level 36 or above.
  • You need 42 Skill points to unlock the Shaped Charge skill.
  • Once you ace this skill, you can place the C4s or Shaped charge to cause explosions.
  • They can be placed to unlock safes, armed trucks, doors, and gates, and inflict damage.
  • Due to them being explosive, they are not suitable for completing stealth-based objectives.
