— In-game description [?]


  • Mines are proximity-triggered, but the engineer may also Detonate them remotely.
  • On land, Throw Mine is a ground-targeted skill. Underwater, Throw Mine is a normal use skill, with the mine deploying directly on the player.
  • Mines last for 60 seconds, and then disappear.
  • If this skill is used outside of combat and then replaced by another utility skill, the mine will remain in place.
If this is placed below a character who was friendly and becomes an enemy, it will not automatically trigger.
