A Trap is an explosive Gunpowder barrel, left floating in the water. A ship running across this barrel will cause it explode and create massive Hull damage.

These can be found floating around salvage goods in the water or created for use by the pirate.

Requires the Trapmaster skill.

Once ACTIVATED, Trap will be added to the Barrel menu during ship-to-ship combat. Also requires Gunpowder barrels be aboard ship to be used as ammunition.
