    To get this you must disable traps. When you use focus traps are the red square plates on the ground with wires that lead to a blue box. You must purchase the wire cutters to disable them. Simply do this to ten and it is yours. You can find them scattered throughout peoples homes in the city. So be sure to loot houses.

    troyoyI just found my first two traps in a small room but I dont have the wire cutters. I also found 2 grates and it said I need a wrench. Where can these be purchased? I am on mission 2, thanks.

    Convicted GreedYou need to buy them from the merchant troy. I believe he's looked in the two bars in the city.

    TheIcemanComethHe's in the same location as Basso when you can get jobs from him. He's the one that sells stuff "for all your nefarious needs". You can't buy the wirecutters (or the razor) from him until until you complete Chapter 2.

    KanchanaburiI would have assumed presure plates were considered traps, but I have wire cutters and when I go to her hideout, i can't get a prompt to disable them, just the blue stone.
