Fat Mine (Mad Bomber) (GRA)

FO76 publicteam xpd.pngFor an overview of the topic, see land mine.

The Fat Mine is a weapon in the Fallout: New Vegas add-on Gun Runners' Arsenal.


The fat mine is created by converting a Mini Nuke into a placed improvised explosive device. Like other mines, it cannot be used in V.A.T.S. It is considered an improved holdout weapon and the most powerful holdout weapon in the game.


This weapon must be crafted by the player character and requires the Mad Bomber perk to create. The recipe requires normal mini nukes instead of the Gun Runners' Arsenal variations.
