The Street Vultures is a gang in RoboCop: Rogue City that is particularly known for their homemade bombs that players must disarm. A single error in cutting the wrong wire can result in an explosion, causing a game-over. What makes it particularly challenging is that the wires are looped with each other, which makes it easy to make a mistake.
There are two bombs you’ll encounter in the game as part of the primary objectives. One at the OCP Bank Heist conducted by the Street Vultures. And a second one near the end of the game, where they plant it under the bridge. In this guide, I’ll teach you how to defuse both bombs in RoboCop: Rogue City.
How to Disarm Bomb at the OCP Bank Heist
First, listen to Washington’s instructions on how the bomb is defused. He’ll tell you that the wires must be cut from the highest to the lowest voltage. You’ll notice the exact voltage each wire gives off by looking at the number on each volt. Follow that wire, and then cut it.
The bomb at the OCP bank is easier to defuse. You just have to take note of the voltage number and the color of the wire. The only issue is that there are two red wires that are looped with each other, making it hard to tell which is which. The order is simple: first cut the green 24V wire, then cut the blue 12V wire, and finally cut the red 12V wire at the very bottom. This disarms the bomb.
It seems the blue 12V and red 12V wires can be cut in any order. It’s safer to go with the blue first so that you’ll only have one left to deal with. The red 12V wire is in the lowest order of the other wires.
How to Disarm Bomb in Revenge of the Street Vultures
The second bomb you’ll encounter is during “The Revenge of the Street Vultures” mission, where they plant it underneath the bridge. This takes place near the end of the game.
Disarming the second bomb in RoboCop: Rogue City has the same process as the first. Except this time, it is significantly more difficult due to having three sides with different colors and a timer to put pressure on it all. The fact that the wires are all looped together makes it even more challenging to defuse.
On the left side of the bomb with the blue wires, cut the wires in order of middle (30V), left (24V), and then finally right (21V). The same can be done for the one at the center with the red and purple wires, which can be cut from the middle (19V), left (16V), and then right (12V). Finally, on the right with the green and dark brown wires, cut it from right (9V), center (6V), and then left (3V). This will defuse the bomb.
You should start from the left panel, then the middle, and finally the right side. Since you need to cut the voltage in order from highest to lowest, the volts on the left panel are higher than the ones on the right side.
