This type of trap released a cloud of confusion gas. They can be very annoying as if your ally steps on one, it will stumble around and re-trigger the trap, prolonging the confusion. If you have several allies and one discovers a confusion trap, make your way to the trap so you can stand on it until the confusion wears off, thus preventing it from being re-triggered. Alternately, if you drop or throw an item onto the trap, it will not trigger again. This item can be safely picked up after everyone is back to normal.
