The Trip Mine is a lethal equipment in Call of Duty: Black Ops III, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Call of Duty: Mobile.

Call of Duty: Black Ops III[edit | edit source]

When triggered, the Trip Mine launches into the air before exploding, similar to a Bouncing Betty from past installments.

The Trip Mine is thrown and can attach to any surface and at any orientation wherever it lands, even underwater or on walls or ceilings, and takes a moment to arm once deployed. When tripped by an enemy, the mine launches high enough that the explosion is several feet above or away from where it was planted, so crouching when one goes off will save the player if the Trip Mine was placed on the ground at the same level. Similarly, if placed on a wall, hugging the wall will avoid the explosion. A friendly Trip Mine will have blue lights and an enemy Trip Mine will have red lights.

In Multiplayer matches, additional Trip Mines can be carried via the wildcard Danger Close or resupplied repeatedly via the perk Scavenger. However, a maximum of two Trip Mines can be activated by a player at a time.

In Shadows of Evil, there is an Easter Egg to upgrade the Trip Mines, with two possible routes. There are two type of Food Carts within the map, one of "Devil-O-Donuts" and the other of "Holly's Cream Cake". To upgrade the Trip Mine, players have to choose one of the types and trigger a trip mine near every one of its Food Carts.

  • Cream Cake Trip Mine: Successfully damaging the "Devil-O-Donuts" Food Carts will be notified by a holy sound, as a note to Holly. Choosing that path, it will turn the trip mine into a Cream Cake of "Devil-O-Donuts", spreading some cakes upon its detonation. Cart locations are as follows:
    • In the Junction, near the GobbleGum machine.
    • In the Canals, near the GobbleGum machine.
    • In the Footlight district, near the (lower) Mystery Box spawn.
    • In the Waterfront district, on the upper area in front of a fiery Beast alter.
  • Donuts Trip Mine: Successfully damaging the "Holly's Cream Cake" Food Carts will be notified by a sound of an evil laugh of Samantha. Choosing that path, it will turn the trip mine into the Donut of "Devil-O-Donuts", spreading some Donuts upon its detonation. Cart locations are as follows:
    • In the Junction, near Stamin-up.
    • In the Canals, in front of the buyable door towards the Rubby Rabbit.
    • In the Footlight district, in front of the Perk-a-Cola machine.

Note that damaging two Food Carts of different types will disable the upgrading process for the rest of the match.

"Magnetic mine that detonates when an enemy interrupts the beam."
— In-game description


The Trip Mine returns in Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. It is identical to it's Black Ops III counterpart. It is unlocked at level 18.

The Trip Mine is thrown and can attach to any surface and at any orientation wherever it lands, even on walls or ceilings, and takes a moment to arm once deployed. When tripped by an enemy, the mine launches high enough that the explosion is several feet above or away from where it was planted, so crouching when one goes off will save the player if the Trip Mine was placed on the ground at the same level. Similarly, if placed on a wall, hugging the wall will avoid the explosion. A friendly Trip Mine will have blue lights and an enemy Trip Mine will have red lights.

In Multiplayer matches, additional Trip Mines can be carried via the Extra Lethal loadout option or resupplied repeatedly via the perk Scavenger. However, a maximum of two Trip Mines can be activated by a player at a time.

In Zombies mode, it can be purchased from a Ticket Vendor for 50 Tickets. Four Trip Mines will be supplied to the player. Trip Mines cannot be replenished by a Max Ammo power-up.
