A tripwire is a component of an explosive booby trap, activated by a careless victim pulling on it.

Battlefield 1Edit

"18 pounder shell with a trip wire attached. Breaking the wire will detonate the bomb."
— In-game description

The Tripwire Bomb is a Scout gadget appearing in Battlefield 1. It was first seen during the "EA Play" event on June 12, 2016.

It consists of an 18-pounder ordnance shell with a single tripwire extending about a meter in one direction. The shell is placed upright at the bearer's feet, and a tripwire deploys forward. The tripwire is reminiscent of those used by the M18 Claymore in Battlefield 4, but only a single wire is instantly deployed, and damage is dealt in all directions.

While the Tripwire Bomb does little to no damage to vehicles, it can do severe damage to Light Vehicle drivers' health.

The player can choose between three variants:

  • High Explosive
  • Gas
  • Incendiary


  • The Tripwire Bomb was originally available to the Support kit in the Alpha and Beta builds of the game before finally being changed to to the Medic kit.
