The bottlecap mine is a weapon in Fallout: New Vegas.


The bottlecap mine is a powerful improvised weapon. It functions like other proximity mines, but takes the player slightly more time to arm and drop. It also has a longer warning sound before detonating. Like other placed explosives, it cannot be used in V.A.T.S.


This weapon can be crafted by the player.
