No, in the current build of the game you can't set off traps yourself.

Traps can be tripped by the player...however it does not trap or damage the player in any way, it just renders them useless until you reload and reset them. Animals will set off your traps as well.

I suggest if you want to snare cannibals you leave a trap "unfinished" , like one stick left to build it. When Cannies show up, finish the build with that one stick and lure them in. :)

When did they add being able to trip your own traps? Just curious

Thanks guys. And Thank you The PMS Beast for the "unfinished trap" suggestion, sounds like a good plan.

I'm at the 4th day (i think) and they still didnt find any of my shelters yet. Just ran across a 2man patrol while running between two camps, killed one and the leader ran away. Havent heard from them since then :) I guess i found good spots coz in my previous games they always found me before dawn.

I've done it tons of times. I run across them and they become messed up. Unless they fixed it? not sure, i will check that out. Anyway, animals will trip them up though.

Ya I knew about the animals, lol while I was testing the traps a lizard tripped one of my happy birthday traps. I've ran all over my traps in a0.03 and never tripped one and I just ran on them in a0.04B to test them out and they didn't trip.

okay good they fixed it then. I was tripping them up myself before, maybe i got a weird glitch? I also found that when using the rope one that the cannibals would swing waaaaaay into the forest and such, pretty funny.

They must have lol. I've had that rope trap glitch happen to me before too, You should see it when you get one of them into two or more at the same time, wonky stuff starts happening and it's pretty hilarious too. Unless that's what you meant lol cause then you already know!
