For TechnoTypes

In Tiberian Sun and Firestorm

If Explodes=yes is set on a unit, its Primary weapon will be fired once at the cell that the unit occupies when it is destroyed. If the unit does not have Primary set then Explodes=yes will have no effect.

The power of the explosion is proportional to the strength of the destroyed unit. The stronger the unit, the more powerful explosion.

Note that Explodes is not responsible for the special explosions of harvesters containing Tiberium. See TiberiumExplosive for this effect.

In Red Alert 2 and Yuri's Revenge

If Explodes=yes is set on a unit, a certain weapon will be fired at the cell that the unit occupies when it is destroyed by a warhead with Temporal=no:

  1. If DeathWeapon is specified on the unit then that weapon will be fired.
  2. If DeathWeapon is not specified on the unit then the its current primary weapon will be fired instead.
  3. If the unit has neither a DeathWeapon nor a current primary weapon, the default death weapon specified by [CombatDamage]DeathWeapon will be fired instead.
  4. If the unit can carry Passengers any passengers inside will perish.

AircraftTypes are a special case. Even without Explodes=yes set, an AircraftType will always fire its Primary weapon at the cell it crashes into. If a secondary weapon is present, it will be fired instead. The secondary weapon is overriden by the DeathWeapon statement.

For OverlayTypes

This feature was neither used in Tiberian Sun nor Red Alert 2, though the logic is still present. If an OverlayType has Explodes=yes set, then the following will occur in order when the cell containing the overlay is damaged:
