A breach charge is an explosive device used by military, police, or emergency services to force open closed and/or locked doors. A wide range of breaching methods may be used in any given situation, but explosive breaching can be the fastest method, though it is also the most dangerous, to both the breachers and the room occupants. Depending on the situation, explosive breaching is potentially slower than a ballistic breach due to the large standoff required when using explosives, if there is no cover available. Breaching can be performed with a specially formed breaching charge placed in contact with the door, or with various standoff breaching devices.

Explosive breaching charges can range from highly focused methods, such as detcord, plastic explosives, or strip shaped charges that explosively cut through doors or latches, to large satchel charges that can breach even reinforced concrete bunkers.

The breach charge is considered a gadget in the Rainbow Six universe.
