For example, I have a combat rifle that shoots bullets which explode on impact. If I use a critical shot, does that affect just the bullet or would it affect the explosive modification as well?

    To be honest, the exact calculation is boosted by a lot of things. Perks that affect the gun, perks that affect explosion (100% tested Explosive perk affects the radius of the explosive shot). I have an Explosive Mini Gun and one VATS shot (10 rounds, non-critical) will kill a Mythical Death Claw or a Deathskull Radscorpion. Before I had maxed Adamantium Skeleton, I would easily cripple multiple limbs if I was in the same room as my target. But it's a very fun weapon. – Nelson Jun 4 '18 at 5:21

I would think that the critical would affect the explosion as well. Usually a critical shot boosts all stats on that ammunition.
