I think Scorpions should be able to target mines. They are usually too slow to destroy them in time anyway, but a rocket locking on a mine would point out that there is one. It would add a new strategy of keeping the rocket to detect mines, because as it is now firing miniguns or rocket into nowhere and hoping for a mine ore TURBO when nobody is around is more just effective. The player would have to decide whether to use the saver or more risky strategy.
I agree on that, but only if the cars are prioritized over mines.
Otherwise there would be that awkward moment when you want to target the car, and it targets one of the four mines on screen (let's say) because you already had the lock on one of them before the car went past you.
So you cycle through the targets, hoping to reach the car, and eventually the car gets out of range (and you bump into a mine.. :p)
