How To Disarm Traps In Baldur’s Gate 3 

Show the magic of your hand and turn off those traps in Baldur’s Gate 3.

The world of Baldur’s Gate 3 is filled with dangerous enemies and environments. While some areas are naturally difficult to traverse because of fire or poison, others might seem safe but are filled with traps. We are here to help you find and disarm these traps in Baldur’s Gate 3 so you can progress through such areas without dying. 

How to detect traps in Baldur’s Gate 3 

First, you need to be able to detect traps in Baldur’s Gate 3 before you can disable them. If you fail the skill check to detect traps, they will blow up and damage you considerably. 

Traps are usually found underground, like a crypt or tomb. When walking in areas that might have traps, your characters will automatically perform Perception skill checks. If Perception succeeds, you will see the trap glowing and get the Disarm option. If one character fails the skill check, try to detect it with another. 


You will need a character with reasonably high Dexterity skills to locate traps. 

A character with a high perception level has a greater chance of locating a trap. If you locate a trap while moving, your character will avoid it if you don’t walk right across it. 

How to disarm traps in Baldur’s Gate 3

The Trap Disarm toolkit, as the name suggests, disarms traps. Right-click on the trap and then click on the “Disarm” option to disarm the trap using the toolkit. The Disarming of traps depends on the Sleight of Hand skill while using the tool kit. You need one toolkit per trap, as failing the check will result in the trap triggering. 

Use a character with high Sleight of hand or Dexterity skill. Otherwise, you will fail, and the trap will blow in your face. 


You can’t properly disarm a trap without using a Trap Disarm Toolkit and passing a sleight-of-hand check. 

Another unconventional way of disarming the traps is to hit them with an object, arrows, or a spell. This will save you, but the trap will trigger. If the trap is set on a treasure chest, it will blow, and you will lose the loot. 

The last method is to jump over traps like wires and vents. This way, you will save your Disarm Trap toolkit and won’t take any damage, either. Disarming Traps doesn’t give you any XP.
