Job Information[edit | edit source]
Workers can be promoted into Trappers by using a Trapper's Knife, either crafted by the Blacksmith or taken as part of the starter kit when starting your game. Once promoted, the Trapper will automatically begin to place and harvest snare traps within a designated "Trapping Zone". Trappers also have a chance to tame a critter while harvesting a snare trap.
While not patrolling their trapping zones, harvesting traps, or dropping off loot the Trapper will also help harvesting resources and move unstockpiled items into stockpiles.

This experience is not lost if the trapper changes jobs but if you change your trappers job he/she will lose the perks until you change them back to trapper unless you promote them to shepherd.
