I cannot seem to locate minefields from the Vantage Outpost balloons. Do I just need to drive around with the dog and hope I come across them, or is there a way to pinpoint them on the map, like with scarecrows or snipers?

Just drive around with the dog.

The mines spawn only when you are nearby. You can get yourself killed when you step on it. You won't actually see a mine until you bring the dog to sniff it out.

I had tried looking through the sniper scope from long distances, walking there, driving around on the ground without a dog, etc. and yet I could not see a mine even once.

  • This is based purely on personal experience completing the game, I have no other references to add.

  • An unfortunate "feature" for the game, but your experience is more than mine, so I'll trust it. Thank you. Commented Jul 2, 2016 at 23:51

You can find them in the magnum opus, but you have to drive into them for them to be marked on the map. Black fingers will make a comment when you get close.

  • While yhe dog is more reliable, you are correct, you can get notified of the firlds in the magnum opus. You just need to practically be on top of them. Commented Jul 13, 2016 at 11:04
