Quark Mines are traps in the Subspace Emissary. They are either stationary or move. When touched they explode giving high damage and knockback to the player. When you are close to Quark Mines they make a beeping sound and turn magenta. Like the enemy Gamyga most Quark Mines are in groups and block the path (Gamygas don't come in groups but block the path). It is hard to avoid them if they block your path but they can be destroyed by a fire attack. Like Spaceshifting Wormholes they can't be collectable trophies.
