Something's strange about the next chapter...

Trapper Trap Disarm Skill Check?

Why is disarming a trap not a "skillful" action?

It would be quite simple to put in.
When you disable a trap, you are hit with a skill check a little smaller than a doctor's snapping-out-of-it skill check.

All spring add ons decrease this zone by 10/20/30/40/15%. (Strong Coil Spring (SCS), 4 Coil Spring Kit (4CSK), Secondary Coil (SC), Oily coil (OC), and Bloody Coil (BC) respectively.)

If you fail you are injured but the trap is still disarmed.

Bloody coil injures you even if you hit it but if you miss you have a 50-100% chance to be caught. That is why it has less skill check reduction than 4CSK. This keeps the risk high even if he survivor knows they will be injured anyway.

Like BC does now, dying state can not be caused through missing trap skill checks.

It would be great to see this as disarming a trap should be risky and even potentially deadly with the BC. 

I am assuming that this has already been an idea but this is my own take on it.

Thoughts?

    Bloody coil injures you even if you hit it but if you miss you have a 25 or 50% chance to be caught. That is why it has less skill check reduction than 4CSK. This keeps the risk high even if he survivor knows they will be injured anyway.

    Sounds really nice. It would make Trapper less boring, more satisfying, and more viable.

    That would make trapper gameplay much more interesting on both sides, i like it!

    It'd be neat if failing the check caused the trap to snap onto their arm. They could still run around like that, but it cause Hemorrhage status and they'd have to stop and remove it before they can heal, repair, cleanse, etc.

     The injury is enough of a punishment. Not to mention a chance to be caught when you miss with BC

    Nice idea wonder if devs read this and implement in game.
