  • Mines are splash damaging traps that can be set to Air or Ground.
    • It cannot damage both air and ground.
  • Although not doing much damage, the Mines still have power in number and can take out support troops or hordes of low-hitpoint units.
  • Even though Mines are classified as “Defensive Buildings”, they are not buildings and do not need to be triggered/destroyed for your enemy to reach 100% destruction.
    • Mines take no time to build.
  • The Mine explodes after an enemy comes within 4 tiles of it, causing splash damage to every enemy ground troop within 5 tiles. This delay means that you’ll want to place the bomb in an area where troops are likely to remain for a period of time, like right next to a building they’re attacking.
  • The Mine does not need the Master Builder for construction, however, the Master Builder is required for upgrading.

Defensive Strategy

  • Try to use Mines on the outside of the map so it can severely damage sniping Sneaky Archers.
  • Placing two Mines together will kill Sneaky Archers and Beta Minions of relative level. Three Mines together will kill Raged Barbarians of relative level.
  • Setting Mines to Ground would better protect your base if you are losing to ground attacks. Setting them to Air would protect your base from air attacks, if you are losing against them. Set half and half if you are facing both type of attacks.

  • Try to trigger Mines with one troop or tanks such as the Boxer Giant to prevent your support units from being killed.
  • Use Mines set to air around your Firecrackers and Air Bombs to prevent air troops from taking it out, allowing them to continue shooting at other air troops.

  • At level 1, it appears to be a barrel strapped with ropes with a timer on it that has red wires connecting it to the barrel.
  • At level 2, the ropes on the barrel are replaced with metal bands.
  • At level 3, the barrel turns red.
  • At level 4, the barrel turns into a spherical mine.
  • At level 5, the timer is removed and the mine gains metallic pressure plates on the surface. The band in the middle becomes smaller.
  • At level 6, metal horns replace the pressure plates.
  • When switched to air mode, the mine will appear to float, supported by a metal chain.
