I've seen a few threads on the forums here concerning land mines and their uses (or lack thereof).
Several posters mentioned digging up mines for future use, but I find no mention of how this is done.

I have a few mines I found at a SAM site, but I thought I'd get some more to add to my collection.

I tried using Devin on the previously flagged mines at the Cambria SAM site, equipped with a metal detector and a combat knife to probe/dig. No dice!

Any suggestions would be appreciated. BTW I have version 1.12 gold pack, if that makes any difference.

Hold ctrl key while holding the mouse over a flag and you'll see a use icon, then left click. If the merc was successful the mine will appear in his inventory. If not, it will blow up in his face. No biggie. Once a mine is flagged it can be removed. No need to use special items to remove them; the mine detector simply makes it easy to detect them.

Thanks Tyco. Next time I'll remember to check the hot keys list before asking! :animread:

Dont forget to reposition them once you have them. No point wasting the chance to increase your skills by relaying them and also gain security in the sector by mining the most likely entry point for attackers.

Guerilla warfare means using the enemy to kill himself and mines are a great tool for that.

Yes, that's why I wanted them. I'm defending Tixa as a training base (not using A.I.M. mercs this game)since the Queen repeatedly tries to retake it. The mines have been quite successful at killing or wounding enemies entering via the front gate. There are no militia to stumble over them, and the Wardens' family seems to stay away from the front gate.

The gate is the best place in Tixa as i've seen them attack from different directions but always seem to come through the gate. I also like to mine the tree line as they seem to congregate there if you fire a shot at them as they come. If you station yourself on a roof nearby with the right rifle you can also pop them off when they are unconscious. They cant defend themselves so it's a bit cheap but when your being swarmed every little helps.

I've been meaning to try dropping marbles near the gate too so it turns into a skating rink but i have yet to find out if and how that would work. Could be fun if they are unable to stand or move and your popping at them from safety.
