Baldur's Gate 3 Guide Steam/Larian Studios

Baldur's Gate III, one of the most anticipated RPGs this year, will finally launch in full next month. Developer and publisher Larian Studios had already released the title in early access state, but now after years of wait, the complete version is almost here.

Thousands of new players are joining the community of Baldur's Gate III, especially after the reveal of an interesting romance option. But like most RPGs, playing this game for the first time may daunt newbies with tons of stuff demanding their attention, and one of those is the traps and how to deal with them.

To avoid having your party blown up in Baldur's Gate III, learn how to deactivate traps. Depending on what works best for you, our guide will describe three distinct ways to disarm traps. Just keep in mind that you must succeed in a Perception check to see a trap to disarm it.

How to Disarm Traps

First Method

There are a few distinct kinds of traps that can call for a different approach to deal with them. To start, the primary method for disarming a trap is to right-click it and use a Trap Disarm Kit. Your ability to do Sleight of Hand while utilizing this technique will determine your success. If you are successful, the trap will be taken out, otherwise, it will blow you to kingdom come.

Second Method

The success of the second strategy depends on the trap. Use an object, spell, or arrow to trigger a trap. One approach to stop the trap from hurting you is to avoid anything that could set it off. A loot-containing chest can be destroyed if they are caught in the blast radius of the trap, so be careful about that.

Third Method

The third approach is the dumbest and also the most fun one. In Baldur's Gate III, you can relocate furniture by clicking and dragging it to a different location. You might be able to move the object farther based on your strength. Traps can be prevented from exploding by setting items on them. While it might not work with all traps, in some cases it does.
