In gameplay, Trap Shot can only be obtained at random from Item Boxes by Ice Slicer Jet. As with most other Items, Metal Sonic can also use Trap Shot if he uses Steal to steal it from the aforementioned user.
When obtained, the player can fire a hockey puck down the lane of their choosing. If the puck does not hit anything, it will travel down along the lane for a one second and then remain in place. If another player runs over the puck, they will be frozen. If the puck manages to hit anyone when it travels down the lane before stopping, they will be frozen at that point as well.
When a character is upgraded to level 6 and 12, the Trap Shot will inflict greater damage.
