The trap pit is the simpler cousin of the Trap pit with sharp stakes. Instead of outright killing whatever stumbles into it, the trap pit simply immobilizes it, perhaps leading to broken bones or bruises. This keeps the animal alive in the trap, meaning there is no need to worry about smaller scavengers damaging the hide or the carcass decaying, giving the player more time between each visit.
Trap pits must be made over a hole, which you can make by [a]pplying a shovel to the ground. Trap pits need:
- 3 slender tree trunks
- 10 branches
- 10 spruce twigs
More spruce twigs can be substituted for the branches, although this has been changed in version 3.15b.
