The Handmade Landmine is a trap item in RUST and is a stationary passive weapon deployable, spawnable via F1 Console under Traps. Leaving little to the imagination, homemade landmines behave much like their real-life counterparts – stepping on them earns the stepee some immediate downtime.
While almost certainly deadly, players brave enough (with a partner nearby that they literally trust with their lives) may intentionally step onto land mines without damage. The trigger engages when they step off. If you step on a land mine and someone is nearby, they are given the option to creep near and pick it up without detonation.
Land mines obey the same placing parameters as any other deployable, requiring building privilege to place near bases and being placed blocked near monuments. They may be recycled for a small amount of Gun Powder and are a clan’s favorite team-building device.
If used for base defense, placers beware – they do not discriminate based on who puts them down.
