- A high skill level with explosives will allow them to do more damage. For even more damage, take the Demolition Expert perk. (max damage 802)
- The Vault Tec lunch box that the mine is made from is identical to the metal lunchbox you receive with the Collector's Edition of Fallout 3.
- Bottlecap Mines are of the same sort as regular landmines, but with a bigger warning attached, and a far more powerful explosion. One Bottlecap Mine will kill almost any NPC in the game, including deathclaws, while a regular frag mine will have much less damage. Bottlecap Mines have a wider radius of explosion, and therefore users should use caution when setting them for incoming enemies who are already fairly close. When you set a Bottlecap Mine, it cannot be set off by yourself or any permanent companion you may be walking with, but almost all other NPCs will set it off. You can disarm all mines that you have armed and pick them up without any danger.
- Like normal Frag Mines, the Bottlecap Mine will become live and likely to cause instant death after it's dropped into NPC's pants (inventory) via theft.
- Bottle cap mines take a bit longer to arm and drop than normal mines.
You can find them in:
- They can be found on top of Workbenches.
- There is also a Bottlecap Mine on the Workbench if you purchase one for your suite/house.
- 3-4 can be found in the Super-Duper Mart.
- Occasionally, the Bottlecap Mine schematic will disappear from your build options at the workbench. Cause unknown.
