The needle trap is a mechanical trap which fires poisoned needles when stepped upon by a player or monster. They can fire 3-11 times before running out of ammo, and inflict a mild amount of poison on anyone who steps on it.

A source of Repel Missiles reduces the chance of this trap being able to hit the player.


  • In 0.24, needle traps were replaced with dart traps.
  • Prior to 0.15, stepping on a needle trap would generate a single poisoned needle ammunition.
  • Earlier versions could hold non-poisoned needles.
