A land mine is an explosive device concealed under or on the ground and designed to destroy or disable enemy targets, ranging from combatants to vehicles and tanks, as they pass over or near it. Such a device is typically detonated automatically by way of pressure when a target steps on it or drives over it, although other detonation mechanisms are also sometimes used. A land mine may cause damage by direct blast effect, by fragments that are thrown by the blast, or by both.
During the zombie apocalypse, the usefulness of land mines would be mixed, depending on the type of zombies.
Land mines would also be useful against human enemies. They can be used to protect your base by setting up land mines around it. However, other survivors have a higher chance of avoiding the land mines if they are not buried properly.
Most modern landmines are deployed and dispersed by aircraft or missiles as bomblets, and are not emplaced or concealed, serving primarily as a visible form of area denial, and tying up battlefield resources and time.
