•High strain rate behavior of partially saturated sand is investigated using the Hopkinson bar.•The relative increase of the wet sand stiffness with respect to initial dry density is reduced with increasing saturation.•The stress–strain response of the wet sand stiffens with increasing lateral rigidity.•The energy absorption of the wet sand under uniaxial compression conditions increases with decreasing initial dry density while tending towards an asymptotic value at low to medium saturations.•Hardin's relative grain breakage potential index increase with initial dry density and confinement rigidity for saturations between 25% and > 90%.
