A Trip Wire is a trap in Fallout 3. Technically the trip wire isn't a trap itself but rather a thin wire that cause's a trap to activate. It is usually placed in an unnoticeable spot like just beyond a door or right after a large piece of rubble so the player doesn't see it. To crouch and disarm it you need a Repair Skill of 25. After the Trip Wire is activated it can cause things to swing from above the doors at you or even to activate a baseball pitching machine.
- The Light Step perk can make it so your player doesn't have to fear setting off a trap, if it links to a trip wire.
