Your Explosives skill determines how close you can get to mines before they detect you, as well as how long the mine will take before it explodes. There does not appear to be a minimum Explosives skill necessary to disarm a mine, so long as you can run up and activate it fast enough. But if you're slow or your skill is too low, it will blow.
Specific levels of Explosives are required to disarm certain explosive-based traps.
- 25 is required to disarm Megaton's atom bomb.
- 30 is required to disarm hanging Frag Grenade clusters
- 45 is required to disarm Rigged Computer Terminals
- 60 is required to disarm exploding baby carriages
The Repair skill is used to disarm any trip wires or pressure plates associated with traps.
Increasing Explosives skill
Explosives can be increased by wearing Raider Blastmaster Helmet and Takoma Park Little Leaguer Cap, as well as any armor/clothing that increases PE such as Crow's Eyebot Helmet or reading Duck and Cover!.
