Homing Mines are enemies in Ratchet & Clank. They were encountered in Qwark's headquarters on Umbris during "Survive Qwark's gauntlet" and in the bomb factory on Hoven during "Destroy the Planetbuster" and "Explore the Icy Wastes". They are floating mines that will either remain stationary until Ratchet approaches or will raise from the ground in groups.
Homing mines are best destroyed from a distance, either using the Blaster or Pyrocitor against them before they approach, as they can otherwise be deadly in groups. Though the Taunter can activate mines and send them towards Ratchet, it is not advised, as doing so can result in a quick death.
