The Dead Money radio is a world object in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Dead Money.

In Dead Money, radios and speakers take on a new and threatening role: by interfering with the signal to the Dead Money collar, they can cause the collar to detonate, killing the Courier.

One has approximately 10 seconds from when the collar starts beeping to find and disable the radio or back away out of range.

Radios have a signal range of 8 yards.

Disabling and avoiding radiosEdit

  • Walking up to a radio and switching it off will end the danger.
  • Radios can be destroyed from a distance by shooting them with ranged weapons or by throwing Spears at them.
  • Difficult-to-find radios can often be disabled with grenades and other explosives, as they are extremely sensitive to damage.
  • Some radios can simply be bypassed by moving quickly past them.
  • Having Christine Royce as a companion will extend the time the Courier can remain near a radio without detonating the Dead Money collar.


Several spread around Puesta del Sol north and Salida del Sol north.
