Besides visually spotting something that sits UNDER objects there is no counter. As it stands now, making a single mistake and not checking EVERY tile infront of you could result in a 1 hit kill due to the stunlock, and some engi could have upwards of a dozen hidden
    All of that can also be said about resin holes, plus even if you survive a facehugger trap without an alien finishing you off you still have to go get surgery, plus there's nothing that stops you from hiding resin holes under other sprites unlike claymores so you actually have to right click every single tile instead of just paying really close attention, plus xenos can make more resin holes than marines can plant claymores since they make them with infinitely regenerating plasma instead of having to get them from cargo.

    If there's a good carrier on the alien team, especially on prison station, being in medbay is a pain as doctors have to keep removing larva and any marine who comes up with non-life threatening injuries has to wait for 20 minutes for some broken bones that take 2 minutes to fix while doctors deal with a constant stream of infected marines, and the doctors having any time to vend squad medics something fron the MarineMed or bring stasis bags back to the medevac dropship when it runs out or something is right out.

    Just observer your surrounding before rushing in. Or better yet, just let the NPCs run in first to eat the claymore, then you go in.

    Also, while claymores automatically stay on top, you can right-click and object and put it on top. Some of these objects can hide a claymore sprite. Also also, you can just flip a table and hide the claymore that way (flip east to cover west-facing claymore and just copy that for every direction, outside of south-facing claymore)

    Funny enough I, as a marine, have been blown up by my own claymores than seen enemies blown up by them due to people setting mines up way too close to the FOB when people are dragging bodies back and set them off because people don't see them/ pay attention to them.

    Criminally underused. I probably shouldn't highlight this as someone who only plays runner when I play xeno though.
    I agree that acid traps are turbo easy to spot, but hugger traps really aren't. They show up only on the center portion of the tile, and they're really easily hidden under almost anything. I understand the frustration with them. Claymores are similarly tiny, though they are easier to spot since they blink.

    Typically plays: Adan Perez - A Charlie marine. Otherwise playing DZ-###-Y, the runner that's running around spinning like a 6 year old on a sugar high.

    I'll give you a trick to find hugger traps

    Any resin hole changes the tile itself to be different, if you simply hove around the center-ish of the tile you should be able to see you're targeting a resin hole in your bottom left

    Hover over the tile of any item on the ground before you think about engaging on weeds

    As the one guy that usually plops mines down whenever a place is otherwise uncadeable.

    You running straight into that nice, blinking, green directional sprite, shame on you.

    Kinda like how resin holes are terribly well-hidden.
    Say what you want, both traps serve their purpose fine, are entirely stationary and come in relatively low numbers, even if Req/Burrowers are on meth again.

    Ah yes it's easy to see the barely blinking light when you are ancient runner going full speed well trying to watch out for the three marines with shotties with slugs but nah it's just me being not good. Fucking dumbass.

    It's as easy to see as spotting resin hole during full marine rush while you have to avoid T3's, spitters, lurkers and runners pouncing.

    Also since when slugs are number one runner enemy? You need both luck and aiming skill to hit a runner with slug and this does jack shit as you won't get the chance to follow up the shoot.
