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


The frag mine is a placed explosive device. When approached by an enemy it emits a beep shortly before exploding, during which time it can be disarmed.

Like other proximity mines, it cannot be used in V.A.T.S.

  • Mines placed by the player will not explode when approached by companions.
  • You cannot grab frag mines while they are armed.
  • According to Decanus Severus, frag mines are very effective against Legionaries because the men of the Legion have no clue how to disarm them.
  • When you place your mines on the ground and either you wait or sleep near the area where you place your mines, they will disappear when you wait or sleep.
