If you don't see them on the minimap, they're not friendly. >_>

And if you could pick up enemy equipment, that'd be rather pointless.

I'm assuming that if the enemy engineer who laid out the mines, dies, THEN you can pick them up. Because I know I've picked up enemy mines as well.

Enemies but you're playing Enigneer. Only they can pick up mines.

Things I dislike: People that talk about religion on video game forums and people that refer to FF4 and FF6 as FF2 and FF3 without explaining it.

As Engineer you can pick up the mines you place during your current life. If you die your mines stay in place but you can't move them.

there is a lot of contradicting info coming out here. ive actually spawned as an engineer and picked up mines that were not mine. ive also been blown up by mines that i was unable to pick up. from this i am either:

picking up friendly mines

or

only able to pick up certain enemy mines

Quick note, the other day when i walked slowly (not ran, they blow up then) past an enemy claymore I saw a press X option, but ignored it (as I was helping the teammates out). After I killed him I went to check out the claymore again, but a teammate just had to run past it killing us both.

It may work with mortars or other items as well though. I usually just blow up their mines myself for the xp/ribbon reward when I spot them.
