The Land Mine is a unique Hardmode, post-Plantera placeable item. They remain dormant once placed, until a character touches them or they are activated by Wire, at which point they explode, dealing 250 damage. They are purchased from the Demolitionist for 5 GC each, after Plantera and at least one Pirate Invasion have been defeated. In the Old-gen console version Old-gen console version, Land Mines can be purchased before Plantera is defeated, but only at night; once Plantera is defeated, they will be available at all times.


  • Land Mine explosions do not damage placed blocks or walls.
  • NPCs can trigger Land Mines.
  • Land Mines can be painted.


  • Land Mines can be useful in PvP situations where it is necessary to ward players away from a certain patch of land.
    • Land Mines can even kill players who have PvP disabled or their users.
    • A Pressure Plate wired to Explosives may be more effective during PvP, since it is not as visible. However, it will destroy blocks, and other players may hide in the pit.
      • (Desktop, Console and Mobile versions) However, like any other trap, Echo Coating can be used to conceal the Land Mine, hiding it completely from unsuspecting players.
  • Land Mines can be used as a convenient way to kill and collect drops from friendly NPCs, especially considering that they do not dislodge placed blocks.
  • Like explosives and Explosive Bullets, Land Mine damage counts as a PvP death, so softcore characters do not drop money when killed.


  • The Land Mine's texture is a reference to the Land Mine weapon in the artillery tactical video games series Worms.
