Operator Tips

Stick Ela’s mines near the entrances of the objective room(s). It’s best to stick them above the door frame or below a window frame to make it incredibly difficult to shoot. This will almost guarantee that the mine will detonate, impairing any nearby enemy. Remember, they’re impaired, not fully disabled. Do not run towards them or you can still be shot down. Try to play defensively.

Unique Ability

Ela’s unique ability is the GRZMOT Mine, a concussion proximity mine that can be attached to any surface. Once an enemy gets close enough to a mine it will automatically detonate, impairing hearing and causing a dizzying effect to any nearby Operator (friendly or enemy) for about two seconds.

These concussion mines will also cause Montagne to drop his Extendable Shield, and they will automatically disable Jackal’s footstep tracker visor.

The GRZMOT Mine is vulnerable to firearms, explosives, and Thatcher’s EMP grenades. Three mines are available per round. Additionally, Ela will keep a Concussion Mine that can be detonated on her when downed (DBNO state).
