A chunk of Cordex, a military brand of plastic explosives. Highly stable, very destructive. Includes a timer.

Plastic Explosives or Plastique is an explosives in Fallout, Fallout 2, Fallout Tactics and a cut content weapon in Fallout: Brotherhood of Steel.

Plastique was used for decades prior to the War as a mining tool, and is still useful for removing inconvenient nature. Like its more primitive cousin, Dynamite, Plastique is both a tool and a weapon. In this case, it takes the form of a large wad of Cordex, a military-grade blasting agent. It has been fitted with a blasting cap, itself wired to a timer. Although an antenna projects from the detonator assembly, there is no provision for remote detonation. As for man-made obstructions, plastique can also remove many types of doors.

Differences with Dynamite

Plastic explosive is, pound for pound, more powerful than dynamite, causing 40-80 points of damage, and sports a wider blast radius. Correspondingly, plastic explosive is more expensive than dynamite.

Availability

Plastic explosive is harder to come by when scrounging, but military facilities often have at least a few charges in stock. Most shops do not carry plastic explosives, even if they carry dynamite. In terms of shopping, the best bet is to try higher-end weapons shops. Along with their big-ticket guns may be a few bundles of plastique.

Applicable Perks

Demolition Expert

Players disposed to using plastic explosive, as well as the more docile dynamite, would benefit from gaining the Demolition Expert perk. With this perk, the player will never have a premature detonation (which will ruin the timed-patrol tactic), and the explosive used will deal an additional 10 points of damage.
