The Zapper Trap (formerly Ceiling Trap) is an Epic trap in Battle Royale. It electrocutes any players in front of it, and has a recharge time of 2 seconds. The Zapper Trap electrocutes approximately 0.5 seconds after being triggered, and it cannot be activated for 1 second after being placed.

The Zapper Trap has unique mechanics compared to other traps. Unlike being placed from the trap slot, it is thrown and takes up a inventory slot. When thrown, it automatically creates a wall with the trap on both sides before zapping a player.

The Ceiling Trap was removed in the 1.11 Small Shield Update[1] because of the introduction of the Damage Trap, but was unvaulted in 10.20 Content Update as the Zapper Trap.
