Ink Mine is a sub weapon in Splatoon and Splatoon 2. When placed, they are nearly invisible. They go off if an opponent gets too close, the mine gets inked over, or if the player who placed it places two more mines.

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 Bomb Sniffer ability. If any members of the opposing team walk on or stand near the Ink Mine, it explodes in a burst of ink. After a period of time, if no enemies have come near the Ink Mine, it explodes. It also explodes if it is covered in the enemy's ink.

Ink Mines last ten seconds before detonating on their own and 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 completely covers the Tower in ink and annihilates 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 activates 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.

Quotes

These devices are placed on the ground and remain in place until they explode. Ink Mines are triggered by enemy movement, but they will also explode on their own if enemy movement hasn't been detected within approximately ten seconds. Drop Ink Mines in high-traffic chokepoints where enemy movement is guaranteed - paths leading out of the opposing team's spawn point are effective. They're also effective when dropped at the top of heavily traversed walls. To avoid getting surprised by enemy Ink Mines, stay within friendly ink. When coated with your team's ink, an enemy Ink Mine will become visible and explode, spreading enemy ink over a wide area. So keep your distance from these mines, even when you've uncovered one.

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 is temporarily marked as if they were exposed to a Point Sensor, though with a base duration of five seconds instead of the Point Sensor's eight seconds.

Ink Mines explode when an 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.

Place this trap on the ground, and it will explode when an enemy comes too close.

It will also mark that enemy for a short time. If covered with enemy ink, it will detonate.

You can place up to two at a time.
