The best combination of a weapon and base at a given location depends on a number of factors. These factors include:

  • How powerful is the trap combination
  • What is the effectiveness of the trap which is determined by the type of mice available the location
  • How lucky is the trap combination
  • In combination with the type of bait that the hunter is using how well does the setup attract mice
  • What is the impact of the setup on the Stale Cheese effect
  • What is your current goal

Excluding mice that are rarely encountered Laboratory mice include 7 physical mice and 1 tactical mouse. This is a rough guideline on which setup is best suited for a particular goal. The best choice for a particular goal is given a ranking of 1.
