Outward Wiki

Traps are a type of an item or effect in Outward that deal damage when triggered.


There are primarily two types of traps in Outward: Tripwire Trap and Pressure Plate Trap. The first step is to place the trap on any flat ground by deploying it and confirming when the indicator is blue. Once placed, you can interact with the trap and then arm it with a compatible item to create a fully functioning trap.

There is also the Runic Trap, a magical trap created with Rune Sage magic.
