Tripwire Trap is a type of craftable trap in Outward.


Device that must be armed with a compatible item, then triggered by an enemy.

After deployment, traps can be disassembled to retake the trigger and the items inside.


To deploy a Tripwire Trap, simply use the item from your inventory or quick slots and place it on a flat surface. You can then interact with it to arm (see Arming below) or disassemble. Once armed with a compatible item, the trap will trigger as soon as an enemy walks over it.

The items used to arm Tripwire Traps are common and can be found as loot from human enemies, in dungeons, bandit camps, etc.


  • When triggered, the trap and armed item will be destroyed.
  • Traps are not affected by damage bonuses from the attacker.
