While this trap’s inability to be thrown limits its usage greatly, its instant deployment makes it useful for when a normal trap’s deploy time would hinder its user. It deals very high damage, with a 50% chance to increase it further. This trap’s short range hinders it, but it remains an effective tool for instant AoE damage.

It’s quite useful as a “get off me” button if you are being chased by hordes of enemies, although a brief cooldown renders it unable to be spammed.
