For an overview of all mines, see Land mine.


The plasma mine is a weapon in Fallout 3.


The plasma mine erupts into a fiery cloud of green plasma when it explodes. It is almost never found in the Wasteland pre armed.

For some reason, it has a tendency to fall on its side or upside down, probably due to its design.


  • Operation: Anchorage (add-on) There is one inside the VSS armory once one has completed the Operation Anchorage add-on.
  • There are at least six armed plasma mines scattered around an Enclave camp south-west of Fort Independence, along with more in crates or on Enclave infantry.
  • They are common in mine boxes in Enclave camps. They are also common loot for Enclave soldiers and officers.
  • Mothership Zeta (add-on) Some can also be found in the Weapons lab.

One plasma mine guaranteed, 75% chance of 2 to 6 mines.
