WEAPON
Satchel Charges
SatchelCharge-GTASA

A Satchel Charge in GTA San Andreas.

Appearance(s): GTA San Andreas
Weapon type: Explosives
Damage: High
Available from: Ammu-Nation
Unlocked After: Against All Odds

Description

When satchel charges are planted, the player gains a detonator in an additional weapon slot; by firing the detonator, the charges explode. Satchel charges can be detonated from any distance, and with any time delay, assuming they still exist. There is a limit on the amount of satchel charges that can be placed in the game: 32. After the limit is reached, any further placement of the charges won't appear in the game. However, after completing the game to 100%, Carl can hold infinite Satchel Charges, but still can throw only 32 at once. They will stick to people, walls and vehicles if thrown on them.

Note that once you place a satchel charge, citizens around you will begin to scream and run away, and most of the time, you will receive a one-star wanted level.

Glitches

  • CJ's girlfriends seem to be immune to any damage taken from Satchel Charges; No matter how many charges the player sticks on or nearby the girlfriend, she will not die or be harmed by them at all. This also applies to other explosives. 
  • If the player throws a Satchel Charge and then saves the game, the charges disappear, but the Detonator will still be in the player's inventory.

Trivia

  • SatchelCharge-GTASA-icon

    The HUD icon in GTA San Andreas.

    In the mission Against All Odds Carl is handed some Satchel Charges by Catalina, which he replied "Satchel charges?! Where the hell'd you get them?". This is somewhat strange, seeing as the player can purchase Satchel charges from any Ammu-Nation outlet.
    • This can be explained, seeing that the satchel charges will begin to sell once you reach further into the game.
  • Satchel Charges are sold as "Remote Explosives" in Ammu-Nation shops, costing $2000 per unit.
