Trip mines acted in a similar fashion to the bombs used by the Ottoman Assassins in that they were placed at a strategic location on the ground, and whenever someone stepped onto the mine, it would trigger an explosion, killing anyone within the blast radius.
However, while the bombs used by the Ottoman Assassins had not just lethal, but also tactical and diversional uses, the trip mines were strictly lethal.
- If Ratonhnhaké:ton placed a trip mine in front of guards, they would immediately engage him in open conflict.
- Detonation of trip mines was not limited to only guards, a civilian could also trigger the explosion.
