From Grand Theft Wiki

A Car Bomb is an explosive device placed in a car to be detonated.



Car bombs are purchased through bomb shops.


There are three types of car bombs.

  • Engine Ignition Detonation

The player has to arm the bomb while in a car. When anyone enters the car, the bomb will immediately detonate.

  • Eight-Second Time Delay Detonation

The player has to arm the bomb and wait eight seconds for the bomb to detonate.

  • Remote Detonation

The bomb is remotely detonated using a Detonator.

In Grand Theft Auto Advance, it is used as a weapon and the player needs to place the car bomb in the car himself.

A planted car bomb in GTA IV

Car bombs in GTA IV are first encountered in the Gerald McReary mission Actions Speak Louder than Words where they are used to destroy a fuel depot. Car bombs in GTA IV can later be obtained through Patrick McReary as a friend special option. They will be delivered to the player's general location and the player can place the bombs beneath cars, buses and light vans only. The bombs are remote detonated through calling Packie on the cell phone and selecting Detonate.

You can easily plant a bomb via Sticky Bombs by pressing RB in front of the car. You can then detonate at anytime you want by pressing Down.

Not to be confused with Proximity Mines, which also affect vehicles with explosions, car bombs can be fitted at a garage in North Holland. Upon entry, the touch screen will show a picture of the car's engine, which you then must place the bomb onto and wire it up. The bombs cost $500, as in previous iterations. Once placed in the car, the detonator symbol will appear in the PDA. This can be activated at any time, both in-vehicle and out, and will instantly destroy the car and any others or pedestrians surrounding it.
