From very early on in Oddworld: Soulstorm, land mines become a serious pain in your backside.
You’ll often find land mines in groups of two or more as you make your way through the many levels of Oddworld: Soulstorm. Sometimes you can jump over them. Other times it’s possible to get rid of some or all of them by possessing a Slig and then making them walk, run or fall into them. Occasionally though, you’ll have no option but to disarm them.
To disarm land mines in Oddworld: Soulstorm, approach them, then crouch in front of them. When they flash green, you then need to press the interact button (Square when playing with a PlayStation controller). Time it just right and the light on the land mine will stay green, indicating that it’s been deactivated. You can then run, roll or whatever to get past it without harm.
