— Fallout 2 In-game description

Dynamite is a trap in Fallout and Fallout 2.


Dynamite is relatively common, and can be found - or stolen - in many places in the Wasteland. Military facilities often stock dynamite, and mining operations of any type often carry supplies. Dynamite is also a somewhat common item in shops, and can be purchased for reasonable prices with a decent Barter skill.

Dynamite has a timer that can be set to anywhere between 10 seconds and 3 minutes, in 10-second increments.

In Fallout, dynamite must be dropped manually, even if held in the active item slots. In Fallout 2 however, if they are activated in the active item slots, they drop automatically.



Fallout 2Edit


  • Dynamite can sometimes have "premature" detonations with bad luck.
  • Dynamite can be dropped near wooden doors to destroy them. This can be used to bypass locked doors if the player is unable to pick the lock.
  • fo1Gametitle-FO1 Dynamite can be used in the radscorpion cave, near Shady Sands. It is used on the "failing" rock support, at the entrance. This can be used as an easier way to finish the quest.
  • fo2Gametitle-FO2 Dynamite can be used in the Modoc caves to open a passage deeper into the caves. This is necessary to find Cornelius' gold watch.
