The pressure plate is a repairable hotspot found near the centre of the Hunter minigame Big Game Hunter. It is a non-combat, single-player activity where players hunt dinosaurs with boss-like mechanics. The hotspot is used to bait dinosaurs. At least one scorpion must be built and armed before the pressure plate can be baited. A warning will be issued if not all three scorpions are built; however, this warning can be toggled off (Option 2 will toggle off the warning).
In encounters with multiple dinosaurs, one dinosaur is killed at a time. It must be skinned before the plate can be used again, but there will be no need to rebuild the pressure plate.
Building the pressure plate takes 9 seconds, but can be reduced to 6 seconds when the player unlocks quick traps from the Hunter Mark Shop.
