Minesweeper is overrated

Sure it can save your butt from a few proxies, but why would you have that over SS, or BB? I'd rather run with those gadgets anyday. Plus, with all the time spent looking at your radar, you'll eventually start getting killed while distracted. Doesn't help that you can't tell which mines are your teammates or even yours.

I guess it just depends on how aware you can be of your radar whilst not letting it hinder your gameplay.

It's not too hard to tell which are your teammates proxies anyway. As for your own, that's just memory. I find MS extremely useful 'cause most of my gameplay consists of reading the radar, spawnpoint knowledge, etc. and my reflexes anyway. I suck at aiming if you ask me but oh well

It seems that way at first, but you get used to the radar. There are scenarios where it really helps.

The frustrating thing is being careful to avoid proxies and having random teammates in berzerker mode ignoring you and running straight into them. Aren't you wondering why I stopped short of that door and backed away?

But you don't need to have it on a custom loadout. If it ever seems particularly advantageous you can just use the default SMG loadout, which is BOSS.

this thread finally made me log into gamefaqs on my new phone..i am lazy, myes.
anyways, i agree wholeheartedly, i wish minesweeper would work more like sitrep does in call of duty, it glows all of the enemy equipment so you can see it through walls. it would make the gadget much more useful, also there is much better perks to use than that all the time. also! i agree with the looking at the radar all the time in such a fast paced game is annoying, as everyone else gets the jump on you.
good thread maj.

i use to think this too... i was wrong. it's really not hard to use mine sweeper effectively. so what if you can't tell if it's your team mates mine.... blow it up if you're not sure and move along.

This answer suX as bad as MS does. Try again.

I actually only have one loadout with a minesweeper on it.

It just so happens that it's the same loadout that has proximity mines :)
