Dynamite is a high explosive, consisting of nitroglycerin mixed with the absorbent substance kiselguhr. It often includes a timer.

Background[edit | edit source]

Strictly speaking, dynamite is nitroglycerin-soaked charcoal, pressed into sticks. A dynamite package is a collection of a few sticks, taped together, and wired in parallel to a simple timer. This timer can be set for as little as ten seconds of delay, or up to a few minutes. Dynamite is especially helpful for clearing cave-ins, and can blow most doors apart.
