Me and a friend were in a raid, killed 6 PMCs and had mission items, were heading to extract and both blown up to the mines outside the USEC camps in the expansion.
We both ended up in the middle of the mine field and I got killed after 4 explosions and my friend managed to get out of it and then died attempting to retrieve my gear.
The fact there is area full of mines that seems to have no signalling of it being there really frustrates me. As far as we were aware we were within the map limits, so there was no way to die other than scavs and PMCs. Maybe if it was better signalled that we were walking to our death we wouldn't be so upset. Also to top it off the mines seem to respawn after a few seconds which makes no sense if the game is meant to be taking realism into account.
At least we might get our gear back in insurance.
I am not normally the type of person to go on twitter/reddit and cry about a death but this is the first time I've been quite upset by a decision made by BSG and if this is going to a common theme throughout the game it would be nice if it was a bit fairer.
I know there are mines once you cross the map limits but to my understanding we were well within that limit.
