The time bomb is an explosive weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Background[edit | edit source]

The following section is transcluded from Dynamite. To modify, please edit the source page.

Strictly speaking, dynamite is nitroglycerin-soaked charcoal, pressed into sticks. A dynamite package is a collection of a few sticks, taped together, and wired in parallel to a simple timer. This timer can be set for as little as ten seconds of delay, or up to a few minutes. Dynamite is especially helpful for clearing cave-ins, and can blow most doors apart.

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

The time bomb is an improvised explosive weapon. Unlike a proximity mine, once activated it cannot be disarmed and will automatically detonate after 15 seconds. It is a placed explosive, and cannot be used in V.A.T.S.

Gun Runners' Arsenal buffs the explosion's damage to 300, from 150.

Crafting[edit | edit source]

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).

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Despite containing five sticks of dynamite, the time bomb deals only as much damage as two sticks.
  • Reverse-pickpocketing a live time bomb will cause it to detonate much faster than normal.
  • Despite being functional, the sticks of dynamite are labeled "Inert".
