Psychotic Prankster is an achievement in Fallout 3 which is awarded for successfully reverse-pickpocketing a live explosive into someone's inventory.

Pants Exploded is both a term and a player-statistic that appears on the screen between loading areas. It measures the total number of times one has planted explosives on someone.

Usable explosives


  • Not all creatures have an inventory. Pants Exploded only works on opponents that would normally be seen holding weapons. They do not have to be wearing pants.
  • Karma can be lost for killing characters and creatures with Neutral Karma this way, when killing them normally results in no Karma loss.
  • Reverse-pickpocketing any sort of explosive into someone's pocket also allows the opportunity to kill anyone, even inside main cities, without getting caught.
  • Because children cannot be killed in Fallout 3, explosives placed in a child's inventory will not explode and will be added to their inventory.
