Naval mines are a type of Unusable weapons in the Just Cause game series.

Naval mines were first encountered during the mission Sink the Buccaneer.

Common descriptionEdit

They're big round buoyant bombs that are used to create anti-ship minefields.

Naval mines may be either magnetically activated by passing ships, or they may have several large triggers on them that are activated by ships that unintentionally ram them. Real naval mines all rely on blind luck and large numbers. Minefields usually consisted of tens of thousands of mines that were at least 100 meters apart from each other. Despite having large gaps between them, they were an immense menace to ships, because it was impossible to locate them individually and a single mine could sink a large ship.

In modern times naval mines are obsolete, because modern navies use accurate sonar to locate them individually and destroy them using minuhunters. Previously only minesweepers could be used.

Just CauseEdit

The San Esperito navy uses very large naval mines around their destroyer during the mission Sink the Buccaneer. Like most real naval mines, these mines are anchored to the seabed. Swimming too close to them will instantly kill Rico in an explosion. Bigger boats, like the Pequod - Harpoon PC 350 can survive multiple explosions.

Just Cause 2Edit

The Panau Military has set up a small minefield to protect Kem Sungai Floodgates. The minefield is destroyed during the mission River Runs Red.

These mines are each large enough to be able to demolish one set of floodgates. Strangely though, these mines are all floating and painted red, making them useless, because they can be easily spotted and destroyed from a safe distance.

Just Cause 3Edit

The Medici Military have set up many minefields around Medici. Most military ports have a minefield around them and some minefields only appear in missions.

Naval mines are now relatively small, but they're bright red, making them very easy to avoid. They're also quite weak, because it takes two to three of them to destroy a civilian speedboat, like the Pescespada SS.

When they are shot at, sometimes there is no explosion or splash effect when the mine explodes.
