One of the strangest traps in Fallout 4 is the motion-sensitive cymbal monkey trap: a toy monkey that starts playing the cymbals when you get near it, with a trigger attached to it.

You can't pick these up, or disarm them for parts, or anything. But is there a way (possibly a mod) to make your own and set them up in your settlements?


As far as I know, I've never found a way to build these in the vanilla game. They are used for traps as you said or alerting nearby enemies when you come across them in the Commonwealth. The Wiki doesn't say you can build these either.

I don't know if any mods exist for being able to make them, a quick Google search doesn't seem to yield any promising results.

    The fact that they can only be disabled, but don't drop any items also indicates that they are non-craftable. – Ben May 14 '17 at 8:58

I looked on nexus mod manager for fallout 4 , and I did find a mod that lets you create them

Here it is with a different skin then vanilla

    does that mod let you create them, or just reskin the existing ones? – KutuluMike May 12 '17 at 17:36
  • @KutuluMike I saw this mod as well, but I am pretty sure it's just a retexture of the monkey. – Timmy Jim May 12 '17 at 19:00
