The Ink Mine is an explosive that can be placed on the floor directly under the Inkling who placed it. It is nearly invisible to enemies unless they have the S Ability Bomb Sniffer.png Bomb Sniffer ability. If any members of the opposing team walk on or stand near the Ink Mine, it will explode in a burst of ink. After a period of time, if no enemies have come near the Ink Mine, it will explode. It will also explode if it is covered in the enemy's ink.

Ink Mines last ten seconds before detonating on their own, and will detonate in one second if triggered. Each Ink Mine uses 60% of the ink tank's capacity. It deals 180 damage to opponents caught directly in the blast and 30 damage to those near the blast.

  • When detonated on top of the Tower in Tower Control, the Ink Mine will completely cover the Tower in ink and annihilate any enemy players standing on top of it.
  • Consider using Ink Mines where enemies are most likely to be, such as in the Splat Zones or in the path of a pursuing player.
  • Bomb Sniffer allows players to see this otherwise hidden weapon.

Data

  • When placed on the ground, a paint droplet appears at where the Ink Mine was placed. This paint droplet has an area of ten units.
  • The Ink Mine will activate if any amount of enemy paint lands within five units from the very center of the Mine, or if an enemy player walks within twenty units from the very center of the Mine.
  • The radius in which the Ink Mine deals 180 damage is forty units.
  • The radius in which the Ink Mine deals 30 damage is eighty units.
  • When the Ink Mine explodes, it paints an area with a radius of fifty units.

Ink Mines now deal much less damage, but up to two mines can now be placed at once. If anyone hit by a mine survives, their position will be temporarily marked as if they were exposed to a S2 Weapon Sub Point Sensor.png Point Sensor, though with a base duration of five seconds instead of the Point Sensor's eight seconds.

Ink Mines explode when opponent gets too close or enemy ink covers it or when two Ink Mines are placed and then a third is placed, the first Ink Mine explodes.

Each Ink Mine uses 60% of the ink tank's capacity.

It deals 45 damage to opponents caught directly in the blast and 35 damage to those near the blast.

Players can now see the Ink Mines that they have placed via a slightly transparent icon of the mine. When an Ink Mine detonates, the icon gets a full color and a red X crosses over the detonated mine.
