A planted car bomb in GTA IV

Car bombs in Grand Theft Auto 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, which will unlock the "Dial B for Bomb" achievement/trophy. 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.

Sticky Bombs from The Ballad of Gay Tony are a very good alternative as they can stick to cars and are detonated with the down button on the D-Pad (though they will auto-activate if unactivated for a minute).

GTA Chinatown WarsEdit

Fitting a car bomb in the iPad rendition of GTA Chinatown Wars.

Not to be confused with Proximity Mines, which also affect vehicles with explosions, car bombs, which are introduced in the mission Operation Northwood, 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.

GTA OnlineEdit

In GTA Online, the player can go to Los Santos Customs and buy one out of two types of car bombs:

  • Ignition bomb: Goes off when the vehicle engine is turned on by someone who is not the owner. For it to be activated, the Vehicle Access option on the Interaction Menu must allow that player to drive the car. Therefore, with the option "Passengers" or "No-one" it will never go off. It will go off on Friends/Crew if set to the proper setting or "Everyone", regardless of the Player Targeting Priority setting . It costs $5000.
  • Remote bomb: Needs to be detonated by using the Cell Phone and calling the contact Detonate. It costs $7500.

Both types share some common traits:

  • Once a car bomb is set on a vehicle, the player will automatically exit Los Santos Customs and will not be able to enter again with the rigged vehicle.
  • Storing the rigged car in a personal garage, changing online sessions, leaving the online mode and participating in a Job or Activity will disarm the installed car bomb (with no compensation). Therefore, such vehicle will be customizable again in Los Santos Customs.
  • The owner will be the one who has to pay for the insurance deductible in case the vehicle was insured with Mors Mutual Insurance.
  • If the bomb is set off by a player who is in passive mode, the vehicle will be destroyed but the player will not die.
