A trap is a hazard placed on the ground that will trigger an effect, harming whoever set it off. Traps, if detected with search mode, appear as an ominous red overlay in the area. A character can use set trap to place their own trap kits, or use disable device to disable or to recover one set by opponents. The craft trap skill allows one to assemble trap kits.

Traps come in a number of varieties such as generic trap kits, projectile traps, alarms and magical spell traps. Traps also have varying power levels, in ascending order: Minor, Average, Strong, and Deadly.
