Tank Mines are an explosive available in the Engineer's utility slot. Tank Mines, similar to anti-personnel mines such as the Bouncing Betty, function on proximity, and will detonate when an enemy vehicle or MAX passes near enough to them. Tank Mines will also explode like normal if shot or blown up by an external source.

Tank Mines can be safely disarmed using a Nano-Armor Kit, rewarding the diffusing Engineer with XP and removing the explosive without a detonation

Tank Mine damage will stack, so it is commonplace for several Tank Mines to be placed near each other, causing them to all detonate at once and deal extremely high damage to vehicles and MAXes. Tank Mines also deal considerable damage to non-MAX Infantry, though will not automatically detonate infantry walk over them.

Tank Mines will not automatically detonate if the vehicle or MAX does not move when they are placed beneath them.

TacticsEdit

Tank Mines are most effective when the enemy is not suspecting them. Place them on Logistical routes, where Sunderers and ANTs will commonly travel, to decrease the likelihood the crew are looking out for them.

Tank Mines are also exceptional anti-Sunderer devices, for taking out S-AMS Sunderers, due to their immense damage. By placing several beneath a Sunderer, the Engineer can quickly destroy the spawn point by himself. Using Sticky Grenades can help the Engineer safely detonate the Tank Mines.

In a pinch, Tank Mines can also serve as anti-personnel mines. Throwing them down in a cluster of enemies may not immediately result in kills, but any nearby explosives that go off will detonate the Tank Mines, causing large amounts of damage to nearby infantry.
