The Venom Dart Trap is a trap that fires a venomous dart when triggered via wire. It is a direct upgrade to the Dart Trap. It has a cooldown period of 3 1/3 seconds between firings. The darts deal 60 / 120 / 180 damage[1] and inflict Acid Venom for 5 / 10 / 12.5 seconds to players (30 damage) and 5 seconds of Acid Venom to NPCs, enemies, and critters.[2]

Venom Dart Traps can be rotated 90° with a hammer.

Venom Dart Traps do not generate naturally, and can only be obtained via crafting.
