Helltrapper is a legendary hand crossbow that can be found in Diablo 3 and Reaper of Souls. This item can only be equipped by the Demon Hunter, and will very rarely drop for any other class. This item can be equipped with a shield or quiver in the off hand slot, or Demon Hunters can dual-wield two hand crossbows.

The Smart Drop system ensures that hand crossbows will usually roll with dexterity, or at least never roll with strength or intelligence.

Helltrapper properties[edit | edit source]

This item's legendary affix grants a 7-10% chance for a a Spike Trap, Caltrops or Sentry to appear upon target hit. As Demon Hunters are constantly hitting targets, this means that those three trap-like skills will be constantly appearing in the midst of combat. None of the effects are so powerful as to make any real difference in the overall play, but they can be a helpful novelty during combat. If you equip one or more of those skills, the spawns from Helltrapper can take the rune(s) from those skills; for example, the Sentry from Helltrapper can spawn a fire chain with Chains of Torment.

Secondary Affixes:

"This crossbow is a miracle of mechanical innovation, though its builder
remains unknown. In addition to firing ordinary quarrels, the Helltrapper may
also fire specialized ammunition delivering caltrops, explosive spiked mines,
and even self-expanding turrets." —The Craft of War by Diadra the Scholar
