From The Vault - Fallout Wiki
The powder charge is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.
The powder charge is a crude improvised explosive consisting of a sealed tin can packed with dynamite, with a sensor module duct-taped to the side.
The weapon functions like other proximity mines, and can be placed or disarmed in the same way. Like other placed explosives, it cannot be used in V.A.T.S.
- Note: this item is also craftable via a dialogue option with Veronica, or with ED-E (with at least 1 rank of the Camarader-E perk).
- Note: With the Gun Runners' Arsenal add-on installed, an efficient recipe requiring only 1 dynamite stick is added upon taking the Hand Loader perk.
- The efficient powder charge recipe requires Hand Loader instead of Mad Bomber.
