In many survival games we have to resort to hunting in order to secure food. It is especially important when there are more people to feed as foraging may not be sufficient. In Bellwright, there is too much to do to focus on hunting as a full time job, and that’s where traps come into play. They can do the job for you, while you are busy with different endeavours. However, there is a chance that they are bugged. Let’s dig deeper into this matter to find out what is the proper way to use them and analyse if they are working as intended.

Use of traps in Bellwright

Using traps in Bellwright can be more efficient than hunting on your own, saving resources and time. Obviously, you can’t just put them in the middle of your settlement and hope for the best. Let’s make sure that they are used properly.

There are 3 rules that can help you boost traps’ effectiveness:

  1. The key to using traps is to put them in areas where you have seen animals.
  2. There is a great chance of catching critters inside dense forests.
  3. Make sure that there is a good distance between the location where you put the trap and your buildings.

The main takeaway from this is that the placement of your traps plays a huge role in fruitful hunt. It’s also a great idea to ask your friends to join your game and help you out with this task.

With food secured, you will be able to scout the area for other resources like, for example, copper, tin, or plants like reeds. Be careful on your ventures, as you can find bandits on your way. However, they can also be useful, as they are a great source of straps.

Possible traps bug in Bellwright

So, you have set your traps in the correct places, far away from your settlement, in a dense tree area with plenty of rabbits jumping around, but there is still no food on your plate? There is a good chance that traps have stopped working after a recent patch, as many players report such issue. You can try using a new one and wait a few days, as it helped some players.

If you think that you have done everything by the book and waited for days without any animal in the snares, your best chance is to report the bug on Bellwright’s official Discord server. It is very important to remember that the game just recently hit Early Access on Steam and your feedback matters. Whenever you see a possible bug, or there are problems with crashes or performance issues – let the creators know.

Depending on the game’s reception, we might see a console release, and you play a huge role in that. By actively sharing your feedback, the developers will be able to make the title better and better over time.
