Where to locate your items

Types of Traps
Strategies for Traps
Map Devices

Items are commonly found and used in Dirac Sea. This guide is dedicated to providing captains a clearer and broader understanding of what traps do and what you can do with them in addition to explaining what Map Devices are. In each cycle, the trap types will be the same for all captains across all brackets, tiers, and level brackets. 

Traps, if you have any, can be found and used in the Trap section of the Items selection menu, and the Mag Card can be found and used in the Others Section.

How to get Traps and Mag Cards
To get traps and mag cards, simply pick up items scattered throughout Dirac Sea floors. Items are spawned randomly on each floor as depicted in the picture below. You will not be able to tell what item you pick up until you've actually picked it up.

Items on the map

Please keep in mind that you can only hold up to 3 of each trap. Therefore unless you use one, you cannot pick up another trap of the same type.


Types of Traps
There are currently 8 types of traps to date. Each and every trap has a trap effect and a buff effect


How to deal with enemy traps.
There are two ways to “deal” with (the rather avoidable) enemy traps if you accidently ensnared yourself into one. You could either use an Anti-Debuff item to remove the trap, 

or you could just take the trap with you to a battle. It's discouraged to have a trap debuff affect you in a boss fight so you'd want to at the very least use the Anti-Debuff or go into a mob battle with it. The other way to remove a trap on you is to finish a battle successfully.

How/when to use enemy traps to your own advantage
Enemy traps can also benefit you as well. Certain traps drop HP and SP packs when destroyed. So taking those traps on purpose can benefit you during a difficult battle ahead.

How/when to use your own traps to buff yourself
To buff yourself, simply use a trap in the Items Selection menu, and then engage into your next battle. Keep in mind that all buffs wears off after 1 successful battle, and even further, if it had limited uses, then the buff is gone after all its uses. Only 1 buff can be applied at a time. The best time to use this effect is when up against Boss floors, especially against the 4th floor boss when you want as much help as possible to secure bonus points.

Example of using the QTE Disrupter's Resonance effect buff.

How/when to use your own traps against enemies
This ought to be a side thing, as in a leftovers result from using your buff. The best time to use a trap is while on the 4th floor so other captains can run into your traps. A trap can inhibit others in battle, potentially affecting their score.

The early birds gets the worm in the case for traps. Early climbers won't get hit with traps and get to set up traps. So climb early!

Map Devices

All map devices affect all battles of their respective floors for all players while they are on. They can stack their own effects on their respective floors while on, but they will always be the same type per floor.

Map Devices can only be turned off/on with a Mag Card. Mag cards are, as stated before, findable as an item pickup. It's ideal to use them on floors after you are done with the floors so other captains have a harder time if they lack Map Cards. 

How to check for Map Devices
There're two ways to check for the effects of each floors' Map Device. The first way is in the preparation screen.

In the green box is where you can locate information regarding the floor's Map Device.

The other way to check is by directly going next to the one of the Map Devices on map.


Types of Map Devices
There exist 4 different Map Devices. Each have different unique effects. Below is a picture of what each Map Device looks like.

And below here is a chart listing all the existing Map Devices and their effects.

This concludes the Dirac Sea Items guide. Hopefully this guide has been of service to you and thank you for reading.
