Land Mines are unique Hardmode, post-Plantera placeable items. They remain dormant once placed, until a character touches them or they are activated by Wire, at which point they explode, dealing 250 damage. They are purchased from the Demolitionist for 50000*5 each, after Plantera and at least one Pirate Invasion have been defeated. In the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, Land Mines can be purchased before Plantera is defeated, but only at night; once Plantera is defeated, they will be available at all times.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Land Mine explosions do not damage placed blocks or walls.
  • NPCs can trigger Land Mines.
  • Land Mines can be painted.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Land Mines can be useful in PvP situations where it is necessary to ward players away from a certain patch of land.
    • A Pressure Plate wired to Explosives may be more effective during PvP, since it is not as visible. However, it will destroy blocks, and other players may hide in the pit.
  • Land Mines can be used as a way to kill (and collect drops from) friendly NPCs.
  • It is possible to kill yourself with your own landmine

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • In singleplayer, if a Softcore character is killed by a Land Mine, they will not drop money on death. This is because it counts it as a PvP death (also true for explosives and Explosive Bullets).
  • The Land Mine's texture is a reference to the Land Mine weapon in the artillery tactical video games series Worms.
