|Technician: Breacher||Tier 4|
|Basic (4 pt): Your trip mines now spread fire around the area of detonation for 10 seconds in a 4 meter diameter.|
|Ace (8 pt): Increases the fire effect duration by 10 seconds and increases the fire effect radius by 50%.|
This skill adds a fire effect to all trip mines, allowing mines to effect a larger range and create a temporary area of damage. The aced version increases the longevity of the fire effect while multiplying the radius of the effect by 1.5.
This skill makes trip mines much more effective as a means of preventing the enemy from advancing or interfering with interactive objectives like the power boxes in Hoxton Breakout and The Bomb: Dockyard. It can be an excellent alternative for users who do not possess weapons loaded with incendiary ammunition.
Aside from the cost of the skill points needed to obtain this skill, Fire Trap may not be useful if the fire spreads around in a fairly isolated area with little to no NPCs. It can also damage players and civilians caught in the blaze if they are not careful enough.
- Aside from Incendiary Grenades, this skill is currently one of two ways for players to get access to incendiary weaponry without the ownership of The Butcher's BBQ Pack or Gage Spec Ops Pack, and the only one to not require Steam community membership.
