Trap Launcher is a hunter ability learned at level 48. It enables any trap to be launched to any location with 40 yards while active.

Trap Launcher is essentially a method of placing Hunter traps at range. It is off the Global cooldown. This ability allows the hunter to use traps as a ranged-attack method and throw traps on mobs and bosses without having to enter melee range.


Trap Launcher was preceded by [Freezing Arrow], which lasted for the duration of the Wrath of the Lich King expansion. It had been the first means of launching a trap effect at range, a welcome quality of life change for hunters.
