C4 is available primarily to the Recon class however Assault classes can gain this also by using an all kit weapon. It is one of the most effective gadgets for a variety of reasons. It can be used against to destroy parts of buildings or the entire building if the situation requires. If you are aware that enemies are camping upstairs in a building you may considered throwing C4 onto the side of the building to blow them to pieces.

Against vehicles C4 is also lethal, two sticks of C4 will destroy a tank. Attaching C4 to the tank is the problem in most cases. Using building to ambush them is one technique, where you hide until the vehicle passes then throw C4 in its direction. To throw C4 further than normal initiate your C4 toss and press the jump button. Throwing C4 on popular travel locations is another way to use it effectively, conquest flags are generally good locations for this.

Finally trapping MCOMs and destroying MCOMs is another use of C4. While arming the charge throw C4 on it and retreat to somewhere hidden where you can watch the point, detonate the C4 when someone tries to disarm the charge.

Use C4 along with your environment to remove obstacles in your path. It sticks to almost anything, such as quad bikes which can be used as deadly mobile bombs. Remember that sprinting directly towards a tank to try and C4 it isn't smart, use ambushes and the buildings to out smart the driver and blow them to smithereens.
