"Leave a present to your friends with these motion sensor landmines. Short delay after activation."
GTA V Ammu-Nation description.

The Proximity Mine is an explosive weapon featured in Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars, and, as part of the Festive Surprise update, Grand Theft Auto V and Grand Theft Auto Online.


Grand Theft Auto: Chinatown Wars

"Once armed, the mine will detect any nearby movement and explode. Safety notice: once set, never go back to check it."
GTA Chinatown Wars Ammu-Nation description.

The GTA CW version resembles more of a Land Mine, due to the rounded shape, but much smaller. It acts much like the 3D Universe's Remote Grenade and Satchel Charges, but in an instant action rather than being activated by the player.

When placed, they will not explode unless a person/vehicle approach it, much like the cut Land Mines in earlier GTA games.

Grand Theft Auto V

The same weapon reappears in GTA V and GTA Online. The weapon now resembles a much traditional rectangle-shaped explosive, similar to the actual Sticky Bombs and marked as "01/B". When placed, any pedestrian or vehicle, including the player, will activate the proximity mine, beeping very fast and exploding onto them. Unlike the Sticky Bomb, the Proximity Mine seems to be almost "invisible" due to the lack of a light that will indicate its place.

Grand Theft Auto V

When placed onto a vehicle driven by an NPC or another player (including its own), it will take 1-2 seconds to activate and explode. However, if the same is placed onto an inactive vehicle, it will not explode, being perfect to catch an unaware enemy that will take that vehicle.

The only flaw is that the player can only carry 5 mines at once, which means that one will use these explosives wisely. Despite this, it is very useful for GTA Race where the lead player would carefully place a Mine on a road layout for unsuspecting players to inadvertently drive over them and explode in the process which can give the lead player's advantage and widen the gap.
