Wouldn't it be awesome to get claymore mines in the next update?

Absolutely not. Claymores are irritating as all hell, and seem to be invisible in every game they are put in, until months later when Devs "fix" it, by making them highly visible, and useless.

Stickies make them pretty much pointless

I wouldn't quite say that the M18A1 Claymore is invisible in other games. People just don't look for them in a fast-paced match. When used effectively, they get the job done.

 

Despite their effectiveness, I don't think they should be added since it's unlikely that a player would go right where you want them to. There's no point in adding an explosive device that probably would get much used compared to other ordnance.

Nah we need more fun weapons. Claymores would be useless anyway since you'd have to setup a wire and pretty much everyone would see it.

Mines were scrapped way back in GTA III. The game actually had a texture and model of a land mine (circular kind) in the games files

No I'm sure very few people would actually use this for protection/ planned PKing. I think it s obvious the people who would use this would mainly the seven year old trolls who play this game, they'd probably go to the most crowded place in the map (usually downtown LS) and throw down a bunch onto the streets and just weight for someone to drove by and boom themselves to smithereens. Overall I don't think this would be very beneficial to anyone in this game.

So is planting sticky bombs outside your garage door and blowing your vehicle up just as it exits to avoid paying the insurance charge

I'd prefer mines. Anti-tank mines.

I agree on the fun weapons part, a flamethrower would be a laugh or a paintball gun that just stuns your character

Wouldn't it be awesome to get claymore mines in the next update?

umm, wouldn't they do the exact same thing as sticky bombs already do?  Yes, yes they would.

Well they detonate when a player is in close proximity, you dont have to detonate them yourself

Realistic claymores are not much different than the sticky bombs as they are command detonated.

If you mean proximity detonated than no, we don't need that.

ITT: folks who have never used a non-video game claymore.

The claymore is a command detonated mine in 99.9 percent of its usage.

Their use wouldn't vary much from the Sticky Bombs we already have, though I really wouldn't put it past Rockstar adding them. I think Max Payne 3 multiplayer has Bouncing Betties.

 

it's unlikely that a player would go right where you want them to.

 

More often than not, players go exactly where I want them to go.

 

Hide behind a corner, place a sticky, move away from corner, enemy moves to said corner and eats booms for lunch. Every. Single. Time.

 

now that is just some of the laziest sh!t i have ever heard.  :blink:

 

I'm sure that's exactly what people worry about when proximity mines are used in war zones.

Could have it with lazer trip wires

what was that explosive on golden eye? proximity mines?

those would be both fun and annoying depending on which end of the explosion you were on.

 

just plant some outside of los santos to take care of any lurking campers.

So in other words, you want something other than a claymore.
