Modern Combat 5: Blackout Edit
“ A sticky mine that detonates from player proximity „ —In-game description
The sticky mine is a lethal mine that appears in Modern Combat 5. The mine takes time to be armed before being thrown, and only one can be carried. It has a large blast radius, and detonates automatically when players come in close proximity.
(Unlike the Proximity Mine in MC4, the Sticky Mine will explode from bullets or explosives rather than just disappear. Players also do not receive XP for destroying mines).
Sticky Mines are extremely useful in Capture the Flag and Zone Control. Players almost always place a sticky mine by the flag; so when the enemy player isn't aware of a mine placed on the flag, he/she would be killed instantly in most cases upon attempting to retrieve the flat. The sticky mine can also be useful in VIP, where the matches would normally finish quickly when there are up to three players per team. The sticky mine should be placed on entrances and exits of buildings, rooms, stairways and narrow corridors. Due to the fact of the VIP being shown on the radar at all times, the level of attention on their pathway is dramatically decreased, allowing themselves to be killed by the mine if they pass. In other modes such as Team Battle and Free-For-All, snipers and campers can place the sticky on a position behind/beside them in case an enemy player decides to flank them or decide to use the position as a vantage point. If the enemy player decides to shoot the mine or fall back as he/she notices the mine after approaching it within its range of detonation, the mine would explode to alert the sniper/camper that an enemy may possibly be trying for a flanking maneuver. The sticky mine can also be placed on stairways, where other players on the same team may acknowledge its position. If it detonates, it can alert players of the enemy's presence nearby. If you see an enemy approaching you for a knife kill and your guard is down, you can make the most of your death by placing a mine right before the enemy stabs you, and since the stabbing animation takes some time the mine will be detonated and activated by the enemy, instantly killing him after he has killed you, this is a very common strategy. This can apply to flank attacks as well. If you know that you're about to die, don't bother countering the attack, just deploy a mine, it will most likely kill the attacker, giving you extra revenge XP.
