"Releases an automated mine that seeks out hostile targets before exploding on proximity."
— In-game description
Seeker Mine

The Seeker Mine is a Tech Tech skill appearing in Tom Clancy's The Division. When used, an agent activates a small rounded mine and throws it (or drops it at their feet); the mine will immediately lock onto the closest enemy target in range and roll along the ground in their direction. Once in proximity, the mine will immediately detonate in an explosion for damage or another effect.

Requirement: Tech Wing Upgrade - Communications

Mod 1: AirburstEdit

"Upon impact, the mine is launched into the air and releases a cluster of small incendiary explosives."
— In-game description

The Airburst Seeker Mine will no longer explode for a burst of damage when in proximity. Instead, the mine will release chaff into the air, unleashing a large field of flames that will burn anyone caught in its radius.

Mod 2: Gas ChargeEdit

"Upon impact, the mine moves between multiple targets and releases a cloud of gas."
— In-game description

Instead of blowing up for damage when in proximity, the Gas Charge Seeker Mine will explode into a cloud of tear gas, similar to a tear gas grenade. The cloud will disorient anyone inside its field, even the mine's user.

Mod 3: ClusterEdit

"The mine separates into smaller mines that seek out multiple targets simultaneously."
— In-game description

The Cluster Seeker Mine, when released, will split apart into four smaller mines that can seek multiple targets at the same time. Each individual cluster piece, when detonated, explodes for damage - not as much as the baseline mine - and causes the enemy to bleed.

Master: Seeking BettyEdit

"The mine can bounce onto and over low covers, and can move more directly towards its targets."
— In-game description

The Seeker Mine can more easily traverse cover and obstacles in the field and reach its target with a more direct path, shortening overall travel time and preventing the mine from getting stuck somewhere.

TipsEdit

  • The Seeker Mine is one of the few skills where its functionally drastically changes across all four versions. The mods focus on Crowd Control in different forms and applying different levels of damage, so if you're looking for a single powerful explosive burst of damage, the base skill is worth considering.
  • The Seeker Mine, while not as lethal or loud like the Sticky Bomb, makes up for these shortcomings by being hard to dodge once it's deployed and fulfilling different niches.
  • Just as the Sticky Bomb can supplement your supply of grenades, the Seeker Mine is a good alternative if you're looking for ordnance to deal damage or apply crowd control with. Specifically, the mine serves as an incendiary grenade (Airburst), tear gas grenade (Gas Charge) or miniature frag grenade (baseline/Cluster) on a stick.
  • Airburst and Gas Charge are both effective at crowd control, though the Gas Charge sacrifices lethality in exchange for being able to disorient the enemy.
  • The Seeker Mine, like any other deployable skill, can be destroyed before releasing its payload by shooting at it. The mine will not move until a target is within range, and a target can usually tell when a mine is locked onto them and in close proximity.
  • The Cluster Seeker Mine has its uses in Player vs. Player (PvP) action as well, since four smaller mines are more difficult to destroy than one big mine, and applying the Bleed effect makes the enemy slightly easier to control. However, since destroying deployables can contribute towards certain build effects (destroying a deployable counts as a "kill"), and since the Seeker Mine technically counts as a deployable, destroying the four miniature mines from the Cluster counts as four kills for build purposes, and that could mean trouble.
  • Airburst is effective against single, powerful enemies, since the Burn effect deals damage over time and leaves the enemy incapacitated as they try to put out the flames.
  • Turrets will target seeker mines and usually destroy them as fast as they're deployed, so it is wise to either destroy the turret first or throw the mines out of its field of view.
  • Rogue First Wave Agents also use Seeker Mines, however, they are only base versions. Rogues will drop them at their feet, and a red blast radius, similar to a thrown grenade, will appear when the mine is about to explode.
