  • The Push Trap is a trap in the Builder Base.
  • It pushes ground units through the air that are within its unit capacity, and has no effect on air units.
  • It does no damage to units alone.
  • Upgrading the Push Trap only increases the number of unit capacity it pushes.
  • The Push Trap, like any other trap in the Builder Base, does not need to be re-armed.
  • The Push Trap does not need the Master Builder for construction, however, the Master Builder is required for upgrading.
  • The Push Trap can affect a limit of its spring capacity. The spring capacity is the total spring weights of the units on top of the trap.
    • Sneaky Archers and Raged Barbarians have a spring weight of 1.
    • Bombers have a spring weight of 2.
    • Boxer Giants and Cannon Carts have a spring weight of 5.
    • Night Witches have a spring weight of 12.

  • Use the push trap to push away Troops from critical buildings, like the Builder Hall or Defenses.
    • Try to push units into hazardous areas such as a Spring Trap, a Mega Mine or high-damaging buildings like the Crusherto do more damage to them.
  • You can use the Push Trap to push units into an empty space surrounded by walls to trap them inside.
  • Push Traps can be carefully placed to push enemies into another push trap. This is best done to high value Troops, like the Boxer Giant, to effectively stall an attack.
    • This also uses a lot of push traps, and is not recommended as there are better uses than putting multiple push traps.
    • You can purposefully upgrade a few push traps and use them to push units onto a lower level Push Trap. The higher level push trap would push more troops than the lower level push trap, effectively splitting up your opponent’s units as some units cannot be pushed by the lower level one.

  • When going against this trap, try to use one expendable unit, such as a Raged Barbarian, to trigger this trap.
    • The push trap remains hidden before triggered, so you would have to predict where it is.
  • You can use the Battle Machine to trigger push traps as it does not affect it.

  • At level 1, it appears to be 3 uneven wooden board held up by a spring with a carved arrow.
  • At level 2, there are four nails screwed in at each corner.
  • At level 3, the arrow in the middle is now metal and the wooden planks appear to have been joined.
  • At level 4, the corners are now metallic, covering the nails.
  • At level 5, the corners connect through metallic stripes, and the nails are now white in color.
  • At level 6, the metallic stripes disappear and the arrow and corners become gold, but not the nails.

  • Although the Push Trap is rotated 90 degrees each time, it uses the Air Sweeper’s smaller rotation icon (the Air Sweeper rotates 45 degrees each time), rather than the Walls’ right angle rotation icon.
