On the minimap I occasionally see small blue squares with little lines coming out of the corners. What do they mean? My first guess was that they were nearby explosions, but I think I see them too often for that to be the case.

EDIT: Here's a pic, you can see two in the lower left (they might be circles and not squares like I first thought).

  • I found this video which goes over some of the minimap icons, but I didn't see one that was what you described. Perhaps it will help in general anyhow: youtu.be/SE1fjtMayn4?t=3m8s

  • Thanks for the video! I used it to snag a screencap of what I'm talking about. Nov 28 '11 at 16:21

Blue ¤ on mini-map means friendly anti-tank mine or friendly C4. You can also see these symbols over them when you're nearby. Even in HC mode.


I think they are one of the following:

  • capture points (the blue square), which your squad leader has designated you defend (the lines from the corners)
  • mines: the antitank mines (and possibly claymores) are small squares (I seem to recall them being circles) with corner lines

a picture of it would help greatly, just to be sure, but I'm quite sure it's mines. will try to make my own screenshot later.

  • Ahh, you might be right with the second one. (I wasn't talking about the capture points, although that does fit the description. The ones I'm talking about are smaller.) Nov 28 '11 at 15:36

    Those are AT mines. @Holger's answer is correct Nov 28 '11 at 16:21
