The Punji stick or Punji stake is a type of booby trapped stake. It is a simple spike, made out of wood or bamboo, generally placed upright in the ground. Punji sticks are usually deployed in substantial numbers.
Punji sticks would be placed in areas likely to be passed through by enemy troops. The presence of punji sticks may be camouflaged by natural undergrowth, crops, grass, brush or similar materials. They were often incorporated into various types of traps; for example, a camouflaged pit into which a man might fall in.
The Pungi Sticks are supplied to one of the two VietcongEngineer kits. They appear as a set of sticks. When used, the player character plants the sticks into the ground, pointing up.
Pungi sticks are used as anti-personnel mines; when an enemy steps on them, he will instantly die. Because they can easily be seen in open areas, pungi sticks are more effectively used when placed in high grass, bushes or even in shallow water.
An Engineer is given a total of five sets of sticks.
Because Battlefield Vietnam features different loadouts for each faction, this list may not be specific enough. Please see each faction's respective page for information on individual weapon kits and loadouts.
