- "Leave a present to your friends with these motion sensor landmines. Short delay after activation."
- — In-game description, GTA V
- "Once armed, the mine will detect any nearby movement and explode. Safety notice: once set, never go back to check it."
- — Description in Chinatown Wars.
When placed, any pedestrian or vehicle, including the player, will activate the proximity mine, beeping very fast and then, explodes. When placed onto a vehicle driven by an NPC or another player, it will take 1-2 seconds to activate and explode, making it a useful device. However, if the same is placed onto an inactive vehicle, it will not explode, being perfect for a trap.
However, the player only can carry 5 mines (unlike any throwable device), which means a faster drain. Due to the short delay, the player must be quick as possible.
- In story mode, it becomes available in all three protagonist weapon inventory after the update is installed. (Only PS3 and X360 version)
