The C4 is a timed explosive in Rust Console Edition that you can use to break obstacles and kill enemies. It is quite useful, so it sucks if a bug is preventing you from throwing it at a distance, especially when there are other objects around. Fortunately, this particular issue has been resolved in Update 1.53.

Update 1.53 for Rust Console Edition brings a lot of bug fixes. Aside from fixing the issue with Timed Explosives, it also addresses some problems concerning Scientists. For instance, Scientists will no longer target you when you’re out of their range.

When you’re in Monuments, you can only sleep a maximum of 30 minutes inside the safe zone. If you do not head out after the specified time, you will die automatically, so it’s best to get moving as soon as you can.
