Frustrated with the ambiguity over who can actually see the green lasers from my claymores, I decided to sit down with a friend and do some science. I'll start with an odd rumour, though, that I've noticed while browsing the forum. Le Myth: "Claymores are not directional, all AP mines are the same and it's just a skin." No. Claymores only kill people in front of them. That's why they are claymores. I do, however, think I figured out where this rumour started. It seems that if you are near the person placing the claymore, but not the person, there is a glitch in it's placement that may cause you to see it facing an incorrect direction. (This is possibly true of the other faction's AP mines, but untested. Also, irrelevant due to their nature.) The direction that it will kill you, however, is the direction that the owner of the mine sees it facing. It's entirely possible for you to walk past a claymore thinking you are in the clear only to explode because it was facing a different direction than it appeared to be. (See Diagram 1) If you walk far enough away from the claymore and come back (possibly anything causing it to redraw) it will be adjusted to display to you properly.As for the primary reason for the sciencing...The rule determining whether or not you can see the lasers seems to be the same for everyone, including the person placing the claymore. Proximity at the time of activation. (30m) It doesn't matter if you are a friendly, an enemy, or even the guy placing the Claymore. If you are standing within 30m of the mine at the time of it's activation, you'll see the green lasers. If you are further away, no green lasers. (See Diagrams 2 & 3) Whether or not you see the lasers seems to be decided once per claymore and no amount of leaving and coming back changed that. (Unlike the facing glitch mentioned earlier.) P.S. It's worth noting that on the lowest graphics settings you won't see the green lasers regardless of proximity. However, it will remember whether or not you should see lasers for any claymores placed and will turn them on if you turn up your settings while in game. DIAGRAM 1: Infiltrator Me is pointing my weapon in the direction that the claymore is actually facing. You may notice inconsistencies. DIAGRAMS 2 & 3: In these pictures you'll notice two claymores. Both placed by me. One has the green light, as it was placed while he was near, the other does not as it was placed while he was standing further away. Thanks for reading, I hope you found this information useful.
