The time bomb, high yield is an explosive weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


The high yield time bomb is a more powerful version of the improvised Explosives weapon. It is a placed explosive and as such, cannot be used in V.A.T.S. Unlike a proximity mine, once activated it will automatically detonate after 15 seconds.


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).



This weapon must be crafted by the player if they have taken the Mad Bomber perk. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.


  • Although it takes 6 pieces of dynamite to make the time bomb, it only uses 5 in it's model. The same model used for the standard variant.
  • This variant of time bomb is unaffected by the Cowboy perk, unlike the regular variant which is affected.
