The bottlecap mine is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.

Characteristics

The bottlecap mine is a powerful improvised weapon. It functions like any other land mine, but takes the player character slightly more time to arm and drop. It also has a longer warning sound before detonating. Like other placed explosives, it cannot be used in V.A.T.S.

Crafting

This weapon can be crafted by the player character. A more efficient crafting recipe that requires the Mad Bomber perk is available with the Gun Runners' Arsenal add-on installed.
