How severe is your issue? Major impacts to gameplay
What happens when the bug occurs? I will have traps that don't trigger, even when enemies are right next to them. It often happens when the trap clips into an object slightly. In this case it clipped into the door and didnt trigger, losing us the fight.
What should be happening instead? the trap should not clip and should trigger.
Steps: How can we find the bug ourselves? get a trap to clip into objects and see if they trigger.
