Simple traps using the energy of the victim’s movement are far from always effective. They practically cannot hit a cautious opponent who has a lot of time and does not make sudden movements. These traps include spikes, boards, garlic and some others..
Simple traps using the energy of the victim’s movement, spikes, boards, garlic, possible places for installing such traps.
One of the options for simple traps using the energy of the victim’s movement is spikes sticking out of the ground vertically upward or at a slight angle towards the enemy. It can be sharpened rods of metal, wood, bamboo, stuck at one end into the ground. Or boards with nails protruding from them upwards, “garlic”, which is four spikes protruding in opposite directions so that no matter how you put it, it will rest on three spikes, and one will look up. And also four double-edged spikes that can intersect in the middle like anti-tank hedgehogs.
From two flat spikes or sharpened plates, you can assemble a three-dimensional figure. A flat ring with two spikes is able to hit the enemy while lying in the snow. A small ball can be studded with spikes. Spikes can be supplied with poles, ropes, chains and wire. Such a wire will differ from ordinary barbed wire by more powerful spikes. In the form of spikes, prickly plants can be used, especially dried under the sultry sun in hot and arid areas, as well as razor blades.
In all cases, the spikes are best equipped with harpooning notches that interfere with first aid. They can also be poisoned. Tactically, these traps are conveniently located in darkened rooms, hidden in grass or water. It’s good to place them in places that the enemy wants to slip through quickly, when setting up ambushes, or when counteracting an assault. Such traps will work especially well in alleged shelters or on the path of an alleged hasty retreat.
For the installation of simple traps, victims using the energy of movement are very good places to overcome which you need to jump somewhere. Dive into the water, jump into shelter, jump from the wall, from the slope of the ravine, accelerate to land and so on.
Often the installation of spike traps is combined with other types of traps that provide a fall. At the bottom of pits, near structures that provide tripping or slipping in combination with hooking and knocking traps. Boards with nails, sometimes garlic and some other products using can pierce pneumatic tires on wheels of cars and trucks.
