The time bomb, high yield is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


The high yield time bomb is a more powerful version of the improvised Explosives weapon. It is a placed explosive, and as such cannot be thrown like a grenade or used in V.A.T.S. Unlike a proximity mine, once activated, it will automatically detonate after 15 seconds.


This weapon must be crafted by the player. It cannot be found on enemies or in containers.
