Vaulted Patch 11.0

The Zapper 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 or floor piece with the trap on both sides, or attaches to an existing piece that is not owned by enemies (including ones part of the map), before zapping a player.

The Zapper Trap is a reworked and combined version of Ceiling Zapper and Wall Dynamo which, along with Retractable Floor Spikes, were removed in the 1.11 Small Shield Update[1] with the introduction of the Damage Trap.

The Zapper Trap was vaulted with the release of Chapter 2: Season 1.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • This is 1 of the 2 items that have been vaulted from the past and have been reworked into a newer and better item, The other item is the Stink Bomb which replaces the previous Smoke Grenade.
    • The Smoke Grenade, however, is still in the game files. along with a custom smoke grenade which is being tested.
  • This is the only Trap in the game, that is a consumable and has to be thrown to be placed.
  • It can be used to create a trap inside a box someone is hiding in to damage them, but most good players will edit out before they get hit. however, if they are hiding inside a structure that is a part of the map, they cannot do that and are much more likely to get hit.
