How to get Damage Traps in Fortnite
Damage Traps can be found all over the island in chests, supply drops, and even as floor loot. Multiple Damage Traps are available to pick up at once, as the item stacks in your inventory.
They’re an extremely powerful piece of equipment to have at your disposal. Any unfortunate players who step in front of a Damage Trap will have 150 health taken from them.
The item is quite versatile in terms of where it can be placed. They can be put down in any direction and attached to any flat wall, floor, or roof of a building. In addition, you can place them within your own builds, trapping an enemy when you’re in a close-quarter battle.
The best place for a Damage Trap is somewhere that’s difficult to be seen such as on the ceiling of a house. Unless an enemy opens the door and checks the ceiling before entering, they will be hit by your trap.
On the other hand, if you spot an enemy Damage Trap in your path, you can destroy it. Take out your weapon and shoot the damage trap until all its health is gone. Make sure you’re not standing in its line of sight, or your attempts at eliminating the trap may just backfire.
That’s all you need to know about where to get Damage Traps and how to use them in Fortnite Season OG.
