Traps!!!

Recommended Posts

Alright guys. I'm looking to start buying pyros to add to my kit. I team up with a guy and we like to suprise the other teams when we play, I am looking to get some tripwire grenades. Could anyone recommend a few?

Madbull are supposed to be good for that sort of thing, especially if you're thinking about land mines (not sure how effective they are though).

You could always get some of these, tape/tie/whatever the device to a tree and link up a length of fishing line to the pin. (you could then throw the end of the line around a tree and snap a lobster hook back onto the line so its in a loop)

A good trick you can do is if you have a grenade with a spoon lever. All you do is get some fishing wire and then tie it to the spoon. Pull the pin hold the lever and slide it into a tin can which fits snug. You can then tie the other end and just let it sit there. Someone hits the trip wire grenade comes out of the can, activates. Detonates. They call their hits and you are done. Good thing is you then have a grenade you can use for everything. Even just to throw in and clear a room

You can get 12 guage gate mines and smaller calibre door mines. Socom Tactical sell them for £10 each. And I've seen the ones linked on places like farm shops etc for about £10 to £15. If they are made of steel and you know how to weld you could always add a large nail or something to the bottom to support them.

 

I have contacted a few sites about them some are happy with them others really aren't it might be worth talking to your locals and finding out if they are happy with the idea, if they wont let you use them you wont be out of pocket then.

Punji whip traps are usually quite effective. No body calls their hits though...

Here is a 12g adapter and .209 blanks - they fit into gate mines really well. Cheapest place to get gate-mines inc postage is airsoft world

 

I haven't gotten around to using mine in the field yet. I've actually misplaced the poxy thing in 1 of my piles of gear! Still, i have a few cunning plans and one of them will take some preparation which i have yet to do.

 

The thing with the old unpinned 'nade spoon trick is that it makes a noise and, depending on what you use as tripwire, the victim may hear the sound, see/feel the tripwire, and dive for cover, because it doesn't go off for a few seconds - you don't have to be Usain Bolt to to clear 5m in 2-3s

 

A few of us were talking about electric dets a while ago. Of course you can get radio controlled ones, but they're not cheap and by all accounts not totally reliable - which doesn't surprise me: it's an axiom of sound engineering that the best radio system is always almost as good as a wire...

 

But there are other options, the simplest of which really appeals to my sense of aesthetics: if you take a strand of steel wire from a brillo pad and connect it across even a low voltage, like 3.7V, it will make a 25mm length of it glow orange - which is enough to ignite the striker of a pyro - but there's still the problem of the victim hearing it and getting away... but, if you drill a hole down the striker and get the ignition element right inside bypassing most of the fuse, it will go off much faster.

 

Naturally making set'n'forget traps with an electric det is much less likely to be noticed, because you don't need much mechanical force to set them off: a spring loaded switch like a wooden clothes peg with a foil contact on either side of the clip, with a slip of plastic as an insulator to hold them apart. Attach a piece of 10lb black fishing line (which is invisible against anything other than a solid colour background and practically invisible even then) as a tripwire to pull the insulator out... boom!

If you can sit in a bush and keep an eye on where they are, I'd say electric remote dets are your friend. There are ways and means of setting up IR trip beams for them but that might be a bit tricky for woodland!

 

Team Gagglefuck's resident 'splodey expert regularly sets remote det "presents" at the Mall - behind doors, around corners and the like. The advantage being of course that you have no striker delay and no noise to give you away!

Yoh can get mines ckaymores and grenades that are ment for trip, however any grenade that uses a pin can be easily be rigged to a trip.

I surpose a tornado would be good with the spinning effect but ive never used one so dont know how effective.
