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

  • How powerful the trap combination is
  • What the effectiveness of the trap is, which is determined by the type of mice available at the location
  • How lucky the trap combination is
  • What the impact of the setup on the cheese effect is
  • In combination with the type of bait that the hunter is using how well the setup attracts mice
  • What your current goal is
    • If you are interested in attraction rate, you want mice to show up to your trap even if you do not catch them.
    • If you are interested in points you want to be catch the most mice and not care which particular mice are involved
    • If you are interested in profit you may be willing to attract fewer mice and catch fewer mice so long as you are earning gold the fastest. This depends on the cost of your cheese.
    • If you are looking for loot, you want the setup and cheese that catches the mouse that drops the loot you are interested in.
    • If you are looking for Splintered Wood, you want a setup that catches the Dwarf Mouse the best.
    • If you are looking for the Burroughs Laboratory Map Piece, you want a setup that catches the Ninja Mouse the best.
    • If you are looking for Potions, you want a setup that catches the Bionic Mouse the best.
    • If you want to catch the Abominable Snow, Frosty Snow, and [Frozen]] mice, you want a setup that catches rare mice the best.

Excluding mice that are rarely encountered, Mountain mice include 9 physical mice and 2 tactical mice. 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 1st.
