|— In-game description|
Mines can be placed down by equipping the items into your hands. Move to your desired location in a standing position and then place it down with the "fire" key (default
Left Click). The user will crouch forwards for approximately 4 seconds and then the mine will appear on the ground. Mines can't be placed less than 60m from a map-border
When placed, the mine is visible to all soldiers on foot, as well for allied vehicles. However, drivers will not be able to see enemy mines, so it is advisable to have someone on the ground scouting for mines if moving into a new area. An exception to this are mines which are placed on roads, which are always visible.
Players can dismantle landmines by crouching and using a Wrench.
