Hey!

 

As you could probably tell from the title, I made a little video about a few tricks you should know about disabling traps!

 

And i thought I'd share it here.

Feel free to give some feedback :))

Very nice video.  However I'm sorry to tell you that the fact you lead with is not 100% true, and in fact it's not true for the very first base you show.  The "elephant" as I call it, or base 25, has a drag order which indicates the fly is the default.  But as you can see from your own video, the saw gets disabled first. 

 

This is also true for the bouncer base with the spinner, fly, homing cannon trapset.  The drag order indicates that the spinner should disable first, but in practice it's actually the homing cannon.

 

Also for base 33, the platform/saw base that I fondly refer to as the "goomba" since it looks like one of mario's enemies, the drag order for the set with the red guard, cannon, and saw shows the red guard being the first to drag, but the cannon is actually the default disable.

 

Luckily there are only a handful of these anomalies, and the drag order trick works for the vast majority of the base/trap set combos.

Yes, great video. It even shows the much less well known and understood "double DT" technique. :)

 

I have a database showing the "default" traps for each set and each base. It can be found here. The base numbers marked with red are the ones for which the "drag in edit mode" trick doesn't work (as Fezzik pointed out already).
