The Mine is a purchasable, single-use equipment from the Armory, of which is the structure for Mine research by the Marine Commander. Once purchased, 3 Mines are accessible in the fourth weapon slot. Mines can be placed by Marines on any surface nearby; a Mine will arm itself once placed. When armed, it can detect nearby Kharaa and will explode dealing splash damage. A Mine explosion can also cause a chain reaction to other Mines in the vicinity; Infestation and Onos Stomp will prematurely detonate Mines on contact. The owner of a placed mine will take damage if it is detonated while in the splash damage radius. Other marines will not take mine damage.
The Mine received a new model as of Build 206, but has yet to be rigged for animation.
