Box trapping

Box trapping is a Hunter technique requiring 27 Hunter. Similar to bird snaring, it involves laying a box trap on the ground and waiting for prey to come. After a certain period of time, the box trap will collapse, requiring the player to pick it back up or lay it again. Experience is only gained after the player retrieves the trapped animal.

Box traps can be baited or smoked, both of which increases the rates of success for catching chinchompas (although most players report the rate is not significant). Normal chinchompas like spicy chopped tomatoes, while red chinchompas prefer spicy minced meat.

A new update in 2014 introduced skillchompas to RuneScape. These creatures differ in that they are used in skilling, as opposed to combat. They can be caught by using a box trap.
