Shrapnel Drop

How does Shrapnel Drop work?  3 points in the skill for a berserker says it does 5000 damage when dropped but it doesn't destroy all level 10 bots which have 4520 health.  Most nearby bots just get scattered. Is there a small radius that get the full 5000 and a larger radius that get pushed back?

Hi Baracus! Sorry for the late response! 

It's the large radius that matters (as mentioned by you) and the explosion affects a big area so that's why it doesn't destroy an enemy Titan.

Thanks for the response but I don't understand what you are saying. The question is why does a 5000 explosion (3 skill points) not destroy all bots with 4520 health within the explosion radius?

Does the damage decrease the farther away the bot is from the drop point?

It is Splash damage so the explosion is scattered and also the power of it. 

So 5000 damage is diluted in the area of explosion but not on a single point.

Splash damage by definition is what @Baracus pretty much said earlier.

It is a damage on a wide circular (or similar) area where the objects around the direct target also takes damage, where the direct target takes the full damage and the surroundings take reduced damage inversly proportional to the distance from the target.

I think what @KEEF is trying to say is yes bots further away from the drop location take reduced damage.

But is the damage spread on all enemies in target location or do you "lose" damage if you drop it and not everything is filled with bots?
