Official Zapper Trap Trailer
Attaches to Both Sides of Walls, Floors
The Zapper Trap is different from most Traps seeing as it doesn't only occupy one side of a structure. Both sides will have a Zapper that will activate when an enemy is near.
Does 50 Damage with Every Zap
The Zapper Trap will do damage to shields first and will only damage health when shields have been depleted. Fully shielded and full health enemies will take 4 zaps to knock down.
Short Range Trap
Similar to other traps, the Zapper will only activate when an enemy comes near it. It only has a single tile activation so it's pretty short ranged.
Zapper Trap - Weapon Tips
Counter by Creating Structure in Front of It
The Zapper can easily be countered by creating a wall or stair directly in front of it or a roof above it. it takes about a second before activating when deployed so you have time to create a structure to stop it!
Use to Damage Campers Hiding Behind Structures
The Zapper can take enemies inside forts or hiding in structures by surprise! Since it's throwable, it can even deal with enemies high up in a tower.
Set Zapper Trap In Surrounded Area
As the Zapper Trap will damage opponents in its range, set it where it is surrounded by walls. This will make it hard for opponents to get out from the effective area of the trap.
Use to Deter Enemies in Pursuit
When inside closed space and an enemy is coming after you, place a trap before a turn or in a hallway after you. They'll either have to go find another route, stop, or get caught in it.
Use Loot, Treasure Chests as Bait
Players looking for loot will not think twice when going after them. Place a Zapper Trap above or to the side of an unopened chest or floor loot and wait for unsuspecting players to get caught in it.
