Inconsistancy of Bombs/Explosive Devices.

I have noticed that there're are tons of explosive devices in the game that the mercs carry/launch/plant. The weird thing is that they can tend to behave inconsistantly.

Some bombs can be jumped over whiles others can not. Some do damage to one area of effect but ignore some sides at times.

I understand that mercs need be different, but could we get a least some consistancy on what to expect from a bomb's explosive capabilty?

    Engineer deployables has 3 kind

    Deployables with Lock-On
    Deployables without lock on
    and Deployable with steady (this one is the sh*ttiest)

    Deployables with lock on explode/react 30% faster
    Deployables with Steady has extra HP

    and there are Explosive (nader/fragger/thunder)
    Fragger and Thunder has loadouts with Explodydendron augments
    while nader has her own kind of explodydendron

    Explodydendron increases radius of explosion by 10% (i think)

    you want consistency? you already have it!

    see a mine? you shoot it!

    see nader/fragger/fletcher throwing stickies? you leg it!

    see thunder? you turn around when he throw his concussion!

    the method on how to evade explosive has been the same, its the randomness and creativity on battlefield that are unpredictable. Hell i always caught by proxy mine randomly placed on the ground but i rarely got caught by the mine if they place it on usual mine spot.

    I was referring to bombs and explosives that can be jumped over and the ones that can not even though the explosives are equal in power and aoe.

    you dont jump the mines brah, you shoot it.

    you only jump it if you think you will be dead if you stay.
