Seeking Air Mine

Seeking Air Mine

The Seeking Air Mine is one of many Traps in the Clash of Clans game.

Is it a bird? Is it a plane? Well it makes no difference as the Seeking Air Mine will blow it sky high. This trap does devastating damage to a single air unit.


The Seeking Air Mine is a Trap that affects a single Flying Unit. It consists of a bomb attached to three black balloons with white skulls painted onto them.

Unlike the Air Bomb, the Seeking Air Mine does not cause splash damage but it does inflict a great amount of damage to powerful units like Dragons or Lava Hounds.

The Seeking Air Mine is incapable of taking out Minions or Healers, and cannot be triggered by them.

This Trap will attack Lava Hounds, Dragons and Balloons.

Like all Traps, once it is activated, the Seeking Air Mine must be re-armed in order to be a part of the next defensive Layout (with the exception of Clan Wars, where all Traps are active for every enemy attack).

Interesting Facts

The Seeking Air Mine appears to come out of its compartment and then hit an air Troop, causing a small, red flash.

It hits the Troop and disappears, but it looks like a flattened Balloon instead of an exploded one when triggered and viewed after battle.

Previously, it required Dark Elixir to build them.

Defensive Strategy

A good place for the Seeking Air Mine is next to an Air Defense. When the enemy destroys an Air Defense and then deploys powerful flying units in the vicinity, the Seeking Air Mine can take one down quickly.

It is best used on Dragons or any other powerful flying unit.

You can place it next to your Town Hall to stop lone Dragon from destroying it.

    A high level Queen with healers dismantle my town hall 12 base with maxed up defence. Not one single air mine was triggered! I find it totally unfair, a total waste of time and resources to upgrade my townhall just to get it easily destroyed by a Queen and healers.
