An unique weapon in that it doesn't fire bullets, but rather places mines instead which blow up when an enemy gets within a certain proximity of it. The ammunition for this weapon is Mine Thrower Rounds which aren't found very frequently. If used tactically, this can be a very useful weapon to keep enemies from getting anywhere near you. However there are much more powerful weapons in the game.
