Strategy

Tips

  • Use the weapon to fill small corridors with mines to get kills faster, avoid using this weapon on big maps.
  • Use it in Flag Capture to protect the flag, especially Walking Fortresses, though mind the lifespan limit on the mines.
    • You can also use this in Point Capture, but it is less effective unless you can cover the whole point with it.
  • When combat locked, fire this weapon to where you think the enemy is going to walk into, if direct hits aren't your thing. Keep in mind that planted mines do less damage than direct hits.
  • The Burning.png attribute is useful for dealing damage to enemies over time.

Counters

  • Pick off the user at long range.
  • Area damage weapons and shotguns can quickly finish users off.
  • Strafe around the user while firing to avoid getting hit.
  • Seek a certain distance with the users of this gun so that the mines wont reach you due to travel time.
  • If you see a mine, avoid it by jumping or simply wait for it to disappear.
