Introduction: How to Make an Airsoft/Paintball Landmine [HD Video Tutorial]

About: I like turning boring things into awesome things! Usually on video.

In this video I show how to make a landmine with a remote charge for use in airsoft or paintball. Baking soda is used in the charge because it is cheap, non toxic, and not flammable. If you like this video be sure to share it on Facebook and give it a 1+ on Google Plus!

    What if I use gasoline or metanol spray, instead?

    Why wouldn't an alcohol landmine be considered a bomb? It's the same thing.

    i am having trouble with my mine. I am using 99% alcohol, using 1-2 mists and it just doesn't wanna burn. i don't know if there is something i missed, but can you think of a reason that it won't blow up.

    Most likely it's not working just because it doesn't have just the right amount of fuel. You'll have to experiment with it to get the amount right. If that still doesn't work, your screws may need to be made closer together to get a hotter spark, or the wires leading to the bottle might be too long and draining a lot of the energy.

    Just a note to add, all major Airsoft organizers that I have seen prohibit pyrotechnic based mines. But, it is a really neatly done idea! I liked it, but to bad I can't use it. I'll be working on making a compressed air, or CO2 thing using a similar set up. I'll be more than happy to give you credit for inspiration though.

    Do you think you could make a 2.0 version where you could explain how to fire airsoft bb's out of it.

    No, but I can explain it. Rather than using a 3/4" to 2" PVC reducer, simply use a 3/4" coupling to go over the end of the bottle. Fill the coupling with bbs once the mine is fueled and it's good to go.

    Yes, just shrink down the barrel diameter so the force is better directed and it should work just fine.

    Do you think you could replace the soup can lid with something larger? like maybe a small sheet of metal or wood? obviously harder to conceal, but is there also a way for a trip wire possibly? I don't see one
