- This page is about the Nuke added by IndustrialCraft 2. For other uses, see .
The Nuke is a dangerous and expensive explosive device from IndustrialCraft 2 (IC2). It will apply radiation to anyone nearby when it detonates. It acts like an ordinary TNT block, though it is five times more powerful. In older versions, it can be activated by Redstone, Flint and Steel and other sources.
As of IC2-Experimental, activating a Nuke is a bit more complicated. It has a GUI, and the player must put a stack of one of the following nuclear materials in the center:
Carrying any of these items without a full Hazmat Suit can cause radiation damage to the player.
The outside slots should be filled with a stack of Industrial TNT. Although it looks like it there are eight outer slots, it is Technically only 1 slot. Putting the Industrial TNT in one slot will cause all the rest to appear to be filled. Once the Nuke is filled, it can be powered with Redstone (Flint and Steel will not work). The explosion's radius size depends on the nuclear material chosen, according to the following power scale:
Plutonium > U235 > Tiny Pile of Plutonium > Tiny Pile of Uranium 235 > Uranium Block > U238.
It also depends on the amount of Industrial TNT used; 64 blocks could make a difference. If filled with 1 piece of Uranium 238 and 1 piece of Industrial TNT, it makes a very small crater, slightly smaller than a crater made from TNT, if filled with 1 stack of Plutonium and a stack of Industrial TNT, it makes a massive crater. Placement of the Nuke on the ground yields a smaller deeper crater, while placing above ground greatly increases the radius with a loss of depth.
