A box trap is a type of trap used in the Hunter skill. The box trapping technique is used to catch ferrets and chinchompas. With the required Hunter level and completion of the Eagles' Peak quest, the player may set up a box trap. When a chinchompa or ferret passes the trap, it may be caught, but only when the player is not standing on the trap.
If the prey is successfully caught, the box trap will close in around the animal, and the player will have the option to "check" the trap. If not successful, the trap will also close, and the player will have to reset it.
Adding bait to a trap will increase the catch rate by +3%, while smoking a trap will increase the catch rate by +2%. Due to the low increase of the catch rate, most players believe that smoking or adding bait to traps doesn't justify the extra actions it takes.
Box traps may be bought from Aleck's Hunter Emporium in Yanille or the Nardah Hunter Shop in Nardah. One can also be obtained for free by searching the crate adjacent to the bookcases in the northernmost house at Land's End. They can also be obtained from hunter kit.
