Captures weakened Eridians. Does not consume grenade ammunition and deals minimal damage.
Usage & Description
The Monster Trap is a mission item with an exclusive purpose of trapping Eridians. It has a homing delivery mechanism, and a 1 point damage effect that erases a weakened Eridian from existence, and replaces it with a loot mission item specific to those two missions. There is no ammunition cost to throw a Monster Trap, so despite their limited application, they can also be thrown with impunity.
This is the only Legitimately usable E-tech item in Borderlands: The Pre-Sequel, and the second E-Tech grenade mod in the entire series.
The Monster Trap is a reference to a Pokeball.
It is the only grenade mod that is provided as a mission item.
Monster Trap can scale to a level that is higher than the Vault Hunters (Not in UVHM), making it effectively unusable and thus the mission will be unable to progress.
It is one of the few items that possesses a white flavor text.
