The Zapper Trap was an 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 with the introduction of the Damage Trap.
The Zapper Trap was vaulted with the release of Chapter 2 Season 1.
Former Rarities and Names
- 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.
