The Proximity Mine in GTA 5 is a rectangular brick-shaped explosive. It is military green in color and has a marking that says “01/B” below something that looks like the sensor that triggers the explosive. There is no light on the proximity mine, unlike the sticky bomb, which has a blinking light to indicate its location.
When thrown by a player, the proximity mine lands on a horizontal surface and is triggered when someone or something walks over it or passes close to it. It emits a beeping sound before exploding as a warning, but escaping it is impossible as it explodes very quickly after the sound. The proximity mine can easily take out cars and even heavier vehicles like trucks, making them immediately catch fire and explode. The player can carry only 5 at a time which might seem like a disadvantage in some situations. However, the Proximity mine is a really powerful weapon and can be used strategically to take out enemies and targets.
This weapon cannot be customized.
