If I (the Mechanic) have the proximity mine and it goes off; per card it is discarded. Can I then use my next action to retrieve from the discard pile? Seems a bit unthematic and a bit overpowering but correct per rules.
edit - mind you I've only played the first several easy scenarios so it may proved different in the hard scenarios...
You sure can. While it’s strong, there’s more important to do with your actions during some of the harder scenarios.
