Trapbugs Basic Information

Type Hunting Helper
Official Description
Insects with sharp horns that live in colonies affixed to tree branches. If attacked, their horns will stick out in a defensive position. Their horns are so tough that they can even pierce the thick hide on the bottom of a monster's foot. They are often used by hunters as a natural trap or as a means to slow down or turn away pursuers.

How to Use Trapbugs

Ideal for Pathways

Trapbugs is ideally used when you know that the monster is headed towards that specific path or direction. Lining Trapbugs behind you as you run away can also help you in escaping pursuers. Trapbugs stay on the ground indefinitely until they are eventually stepped on by large monsters.
