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

Characteristics[edit | edit source]

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[edit | edit source]

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.

Creation requirements

Bottlecap mine (1)
Gun Runners' Arsenal add-on
Bottlecap mine, efficient
(Mad Bomber) (GRA) (1)

¹ Craftable without a workbench via a dialogue option with Veronica, or with ED-E once the add-on Lonesome Road is installed.

When talking to Alice McLafferty during the Pressing Matters quest, she mentions that "some idiots" use caps inside explosives, referring to the bottlecap mine.
