| "The ultimate in multipurpose explosives, the Selectable Lightweight Attack Munition, or SLAM for short, was designed to be as adaptable as possible for a single explosive unit. With its four different modes, and functions including a programmable timer and an infrared beam emitter, the SLAM's all-in-one nature allows it to be used in place of all other types of explosives, even hand grenades. However, this multipurpose ability has a cost; each SLAM is expensive, and safety is ever more important with this weapon than any other explosive device. Improper use of a SLAM may result in severe injuries, loss of limbs, death, and/or severe disappointment."|

The SLAM is a multipurpose planted explosive.
This weapon is multipurpose; it has multiple modes. Depending on the mode set, the SLAM will behave similarly to other types of explosives.
The available SLAM modes are:
- Mode 1: Manual - Will make the SLAM behave like a command detonation explosive (such as a C4 charge), therefore requiring a Detonator.
- Mode 2: Timer - Will make the SLAM behave like a timed charge after a set amount of time (from 0 to 9 turns).
- Mode 3: Pressure - Will make the SLAM behave like a pressure mine (such as a TS-50 mine), with an additional benefit of being able to set the timer until priming to anywhere between 1 and 9 turns (normal pressure mines only allow for 2 turns). This can be used to lay down a large amount of SLAMs on the same Side as pressure mines.
- Mode 4: Infrared - Will make the SLAM behave like a directional mine (such as a Claymore mine), using an invisible infrared beam instead of a tripwire to detect targets. In this mode, the SLAM causes a Localized explosion, to avoid hurting or killing creatures on the Protected Side.
For specifics on how to use each mode, please see Explosives.
This weapon is a non-fragmenting high-explosive; no shrapnel are released upon exploding. It will cause a Standard explosion in Modes 1, 2 and 3, and a Localized explosion in Mode 4. See Explosives for more details.
