The Explosive Devices were large spherical devices with a small metal handle atop them and a lever on the front to detonate the device, Kain was first exposed to them through the actions of two (rather undisciplined) Mercenaries in a nearby factory/commons, who deliberately triggered a palette of the devices, which blew most of the wall of the factory away and injured or killed many nearby Humans.
Through the rest of the Industrial Quarter, Kain used the explosive devices on several occasions to break through walls, windows and on occasion kill enemies (usually using theDark GiftCharm ).
