The Claymore Mine

"If they had time, they would have rigged mines out the way out." Dina

The Claymore Mine (simply, the Claymore) is equipment used by classes in World War Z.

The C4 is used by the Hellraiser and Exterminator classes in Co-op Campaign, and the Trapper and Phantom classes in Multiplayer.


The Claymore is a proximity mine that detonates on its own once an enemy approaches its line of sight, indicated by the three glowing lines in front of it. Its design makes it perfect for setting up traps and covering flanks.


The Claymore Mine is based on the M18 Claymore mine which is a directional anti-personnel mine. A laser-emitting trip wire is attached to the top of the mine to automatically detonate when detecting an enemy walking past it.
