i dont see how pitfall traps are even useful anymore. heres my problems with them:

harder to make overall (genfangs can be bought, nets cant)
some monsters are immune

which do you think is better?

each has its use.

Pitfalls make hitting a tall monsters head easy or open up attack possibilities that sometimes a shock cannot.

Yes sometimes you do have to go spiderweb hunting to make them into nets, but it can be useful.

Also, Gypceros is immune to Shock Traps.
Personally, I prefer Shock Traps, but each is useful.

Like these 2 have said, each trap has their uses.

Would it hurt to use both?

Pitfall- Used to reach the head

Shock Trap- To keep that annoying tail in place so you can cut it

the person meant the tool to make traps, not the traps themselves.

really i only like to use pitfalls on monsters that are immune and if im hammering, shock traps make them move less aswell as are easier to make/spam, seeing as you can buy the fangs traps themselves out right.

ask yourself this, would you rather not use the net fishing, instead of making a trap with thats easier to obtain and serves the same purpose?
