Guide to Trapper Role

Role Information

The Trapper is a diligent sentinel under the Town Protective alignment, devoid of any attack or defense immunities. With the primary ability to lay a Trap, the Trapper can fortify another player’s house with a Powerful Defense against one attack. Once the Trap is set, it stays unless it is triggered by a visit or you build a new trap elsewhere. Upon the Trap’s activation, the Trapper gains knowledge of the roles of the visitors. However, keep in mind that a Trap can only protect against a single attack and the Trapper can maintain only one Trap at a time. Just like every loyal townsfolk, the Trapper’s goal is to bring every criminal and evildoer to justice.

Strategy Guide for Playing as Trapper

Understanding the Trapper Role

As a Trapper, your foremost responsibility is to protect the town by placing Traps at players’ houses, which provide Powerful Defense against one attack. Once you lay a Trap, it remains until it either neutralizes a harmful visit or you dismantle it. If the Trap is triggered, you will know the roles of all visitors to the targeted house.

Choosing Your Trap Placement

Determining where to set your Trap should not be a random decision. Analyze the behaviors, role claims, and voting patterns of players during the day to guide your decision. You should also consider any information provided by other town roles.

Recognizing Your Limitations

While your Trap is a potent tool, it is not invincible. It can only protect against one attack. If multiple players attempt to attack your target, the Trap will neutralize only one attacker, leaving your target vulnerable to any remaining attacks.

Communicating with the Town

Communication is crucial in Town of Salem. Be sure to share significant information with the town, such as when a Trap is triggered. However, be cautious about revealing too much about your own role to avoid becoming a target yourself.

Protecting Yourself

As a crucial protective role, you are likely to become a target for evil roles. Consider placing a Trap at your own house if you feel threatened.

Creating a Believable Story

Create believable results for your Trap placements. Make sure they align with the events unfolding in the game.

Adapting to Game Events

Adjust your claims based on the game’s events. If a player you claimed was protected by a Trap is attacked or dies, have a back-up plan or a plausible explanation ready. For instance, you could argue that your trap was triggered by a different visitor and not the attacker. The key is to be flexible and able to quickly adapt to changing game scenarios while maintaining credibility.
