The Ancient Box Trap is the only Craftable Forgotten type weapon in the game and is used in the Acolyte Realm to catch the Acolyte Mouse. Additionally, the Ancient Box Trap has proven to be very effective against the mice of Balack's Cove and the Eclipse mouse.

The other Forgotten type weapons are The Forgotten Art of Dance and the limited edition Tarannosaurus Rex Trap.

The ancient ghost mice which roamed Gnawnia before even the castle existed require an old-fashioned trap strategy, and the Ancient Box Trap is about as old-fashioned as they come. A heavy stone box teeters precariously upon an Ancient Relic Staff, waiting for a mouse to pull the Ethereal Rope and cause the box to slam shut and magically fuse with the base. This may seem like a deceptively simple trap set-up, but ancient mice enjoy the classics.

History and Trivia

Before 2 September 2009, a minimum of 19,000,000 points was required to craft this weapon. The point requirement was lowered in the interest of making the Ancient Box Trap accessible to most hunters with the title of Knight.

Prior the release of MouseHunt version 3.0 on 8 June 2010, the description was:

"A trap design that has long withstood the test of time. The parts of this trap emit a powerful glow capable of mesmerizing power-hungry, greedy mice. The heavy stone box teeters precariously upon the Ancient Relic Staff awaiting a mouse to pull the Ethereal Rope and cause the box to slam shut and magically fuse with the base. It is only this simple, long-forgotten trap that is capable of defeating the powerful Acolyte mouse."
