"The Traps skill governs the player's ability to find and remove traps. The skill also has an impact on the player's ability to handle timed explosives properly. This excludes grenades, as they are handled under the Throwing skill. "
The higher your Traps skill, the more damage you do with when setting off Dynamite or Plastic Explosives, up to 645% damage at 150 Traps. As said in the description, this does not affect the damage done with thrown weapons. Also, the higher your Traps skill, the less likely you are to set off a trap, such as bear traps which often spawn near Footlockers, when attempting to disable it.
NOTE: Maximum Traps skill is 150. You can attempt to make it higher but it will go back to 150 and give you your points back.
