  • Switch detonator An explosive device activated by pressing the X button, it is usually used in tandem with other traps
  • Mine A land mine that explodes when stepped on
  • Bomb Useless on its own, the bomb is very powerful in combination with the remote detonator or mine
  • Pitfall The pitfall halts an opponent's movement by trapping them in a pit for a few seconds, making them vulnerable to attacks
  • Force panel The force panel forces your foe in a preset direction; multiple force panels can be used to guide opponents into a mine or trap combination.
  • Gas Gas has the largest effect radius of all standalone traps and detonates via timer. Once the gas is set, it is only a matter of time before nerve agent permeates the area, damaging all players with constant health loss, which remains with the player for a few seconds once they escape the vapor cloud.
