Proximity mines are weapons that Dark can utilise in Aliens vs. Predator 3 in both the campaign and multiplayer. The mines are generally thrown on the ground or walls and can be detonated at any time by use of his wrist computer. This makes them extremely useful for blocking off or guarding areas of the maps or to kill a pursuing enemy. They are discovered in the campaign near the corpse of a dead Predator and require energy to use. They are generally an instant kill on all standard opponents, both on multiplayer and the campaign and thus can be considered extremely useful. They also closely conform to the Predator's mode of hunting, laying traps and waiting for the enemy to wander into them. However, they can be seen as less useful than the Plasma Caster, Combistaff or Smartdisc due to their lack of versatility in their reliance on waiting for the enemy to come to you.
