How to disarm proximity mines
By mxup
Did you know you can disarm them? I was probably half-way the game before I realized. :)
Mine wisdom

in DX:HR you run by default. Crouch AND switch to walk speed (CAPS lock key by default). This way you can approach the proximity mine without triggering it. Simply press the use key to disarm it. Afterwards you can use it yourself!

Good to know. I always just kept my distance and hit them at an angle with a silienced machine pistol. And yeah, always funny seeing the enemies lose it and they can't find you.

Lacky1: OMG what was that!
Lacky2: probably another rat touched the mines.

Yeah, I didn't notice my first run through either, had a few areas where I would invariably blow one in an area I'd stealthed through and suddenly the whole complex would be alerted...makes getting the ghost achievement bit a real bother.
