Steel Snares are a trip wire trap which deals 25 damage and ensares your opponent if they walk through it. If trapped, your opponent will remain ensnared until hit or he breaks out (which takes 10 seconds to do). Even while trapped, your opponent can still hit, block, and shove, so make sure not to attack him front the front. Steel snares can be avoided by jumping over or crouching through them, so they are most effective when hidden. They can also be picked up by enemies and destroyed by explosives, but are immune to being broken through hits. Its placement speed can be sped up with the perk Trapper.
