Where to Get the Delver Tripcaster

Location Cost
Purchase from Merchant at Fall’s Edge 1437x Metal Shards, 1x Elemental Clawstrider Circulator, 1x Large Machine Core

Once you have access to the western half of the map, you can visit a village call Fall’s Edge, to the southwest of The Memorial Grove. It requires an Elemental Clawstrider Circulator, as well as a Large Machine Core. The latter can drop from any Heavyweight class machine, while the former requires you to find either a Fire or Acid Clawstrider (or their Apex versions). There is an Acid Clawstrider site not too far south from The Memorial Grove.

How to Use the Delver Tripcaster

The Delver Tripcaster is the explosive-focused Tripcaster of the entire weapon class. You have access to both the normal Explosive Tripwires, as well as the Advanced version, once you unlock those. If you don’t care about harvesting the machine components, then you can set up ambushes for certain machines to deal some major damage. The only problem with the Advanced Explosive Tripwires is that they are expensive to craft outside of the crafting bench, so you’re not going to get many out of your supply. Shieldwires can be used in combat, especially if you’re against a projectile-heavy enemy, but you can also set traps with them, as you can shoot them with your own arrows to make them explode.
