Prate Proximity Mines are explosive weapons developed by Space Pirates. Like any land mine, they explode when approached. Samus only encounters these explosives on the Pirate-controlled section of Bryyo in Corruption, on her way to the second Tiamat Turret. These are the most basic of Pirate mines; they are relatively large and easily noticeable. Additionally, they can be destroyed by any of Samus's weaponry. These mines cause minor damage with a limited blast radius.
