Potato Nugget Mine is an alternate ability for the Cactus' Potato Mine, and it can only be unlocked through Sticker Packs. It deals 50 damage, which is less than a Potato Mine and has a smaller explosion radius, but the player can plant five, as opposed to three. They are smaller, but they can disguise easier. It takes 30 seconds to recharge one Potato Nugget Mine.
These little nuggets are small, have a great sense of humor and enjoy sitting around waiting to blow Zombies sky high. While not as damaging as their potato cousins, these little nuggets still pack a spudow!
A Potato Nugget Mine has less than or equal to 16 health.
Hiding them around corners, behind objects and sometimes in the middle of the garden is a good way to use them. They are not recommended to be used in groups since this ruins their camouflage, making them even less of a problem to the zombies. In some areas on nighttime levels, they are lethal since they are hard to notice and four of them can kill an All-Star.
While not much of a threat, Potato Nugget Mines can get quite annoying due to their small size, which makes them hard to notice (and to shoot if you are in the middle of a firefight). It takes two of them to kill a Scientist, and even if they fail to kill you, they still cause noticeable damage so caution is advised.
