Jason Can Set Traps to Kill Victims in 'Friday the 13th: The Game'

The upcoming “Friday the 13th: The Game” will feature something the developers are calling “Jason Traps”, and you can use these cunning traps to trick counselors. Also, we hear that traps can be used by counselors against Jason, so you’ll have to use some skill folks.

“Friday the 13th: The Game” developer Wes took the time to answer some questions regarding this new feature. When asked about the differences between Jason’s traps and counselors traps, Wes informed the community at the F13Game forum:

Q: Are Jason’s traps the same asset as the counselors trap?

A:No. Jason spent a long time in the woods, alone. Honing his skills as a hunter and killer. This is a trap that he has created,I’m told, using found items in the woods. Old pieces of wood, rusty nails and spikes and perhaps old bed springs from an old mattress to slam the trap shut.

Q: How do Jason traps work?

A: “Jason has traps in his inventory (hud icon). Once selected (button press) Jason kneels and places trap on ground, and then covers the trap with leaves.

Q: How many traps does Jason have?

A: “Each Jason will have different amounts of traps. For example, J2 might have 5, whereas J8 only 3.

Q: Can Jason set traps anywhere on the map?

A: “Jason can only set traps within exterior areas only. He can not set them inside a cabin/building/underwater/docks. Only on ground textures.

Q: Can Jason set traps near doors, windows and the car?

A: “Yes. And it’s awesome. You might think, at first blush, that this is too OP and could be used to troll. But Jason only has a limited amount of these.

“Friday the 13th: The Game” has no release date at present. While we wait for that, check out some shots of the trap in action.

As Jason sets the trap, he covers it with leaves thus providing some camo to the trap. Choosing where you set the trap is crucial. We chose to set one here on the road so you can clearly see it. But a smart Jason would set this trap near other “world” leaves, thus making it nearly invisible.
