How to Disarm Traps
There are a few different types of traps in Baldur’s Gate III that may require a different strategy to deal with them. First, the main way you’re supposed to disarm traps is by right-clicking it and using a Trap Disarm Kit. Your success depends on your Sleight of Hand skill while attempting this method. If you succeed, the trap will be disabled. And if you don’t, well, you’re not going to want your party close to that trap.
The second method isn’t a clever one, but it can work depending on the trap. Hit a trap with an arrow, a spell, an item, etc. Anything that may trigger the trap is one way to prevent it from hurting you instead. Just be careful if this trap is near loot, because it can destroy a chest in the process. A side tip that’s not counted in the main three is to take advantage of the jumping action. Sometimes you can jump over a trap like a tripwire for example.
The third method is a silly one that requires moving nearby objects. If you’ve played Divinity: Original Sin 2, you may already know where this is going. You can move furniture in Baldur’s Gate III by clicking and dragging it to a different spot. Depending on your strength, you may be able to move it further. By placing items like barrels on traps, you can potentially disable it from working. This may not work with all traps, but it does with certain ones. For example, the oil grates in the Dank Crypt (in the Chapel), won’t dispense oil if any object is above them. You can see this in the screenshot at the top of this guide.
