— In-game description, GTA V

Proximity Mines are weapons used in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars and Grand Theft Auto V.


When placed, they will not explode unless a person/vehicle approach it, much like the cut Land Mines in earlier GTA games. Proximity Mines cost $500 at Ammu-Nation.

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, 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.


Price: $500
Rating: 4
Quantity: 5 mines
Description: Once armed, the mine will detect any nearby movement and explode. Safety notice: once set, never go back to check it.
