Overview[edit | edit source]

The Bear Trap is an item used to temporarily immobilize humans and small creatures. When a creature gets trapped, durability slowly depletes at a rate of one unit per eight seconds. With a total durability of one hundred this takes some time (800 seconds or 13.33 minutes) to let go, unit can also be repaired with a captive in its jaws. It is unknown is the 800 second value is for tamed or wild creatures, or both. Be aware that humans can be trapped and that they can't open so they need to wait 800 second.

Once placed the trap can be picked up by anyone. If sprung it can only be demolished by either the tribe responsible, or the owner (depending on tribe settings). This works on PVE servers currently. If you are caught in your own trap you can not demolish it so use caution.

Traps can only be set within a certain distance of each other (3 foundations for small traps). Traps can be placed underwater, but if a player is swimming, they do not seem to be triggered.

"Small animals" seems to cover anything that an Argentavis would be able to carry.

Traps can be hidden in the tops of pillars.

A player can set off their own bear trap.
