I meant it's easier to kill a cube with a regular cannon/torp build instead of mines. With a good build killing an elite cube (not a tac one) takes 20 seconds or so. No need to use mines here.
I'm not talking about the ISE starting Cube, or the Cubes above ISE and KASE Transformers, I'm talking about the ones in CSE; The ones that have 3 nodes that fully heal it in one tick. Those require spike damage if you want to skip killing the healing nodes.
