In a skirmish, the mantrap's primary goal is to prevent enemies from reaching its master. It will attempt to grab enemies with golem rampage (it can grab two at a time and drag them along with it) and pull them to some hindering terrain. If it is already badly damaged, its master may even command it to take victims to some place where the golem may also be destroyed, such as over a cliff or into a lava pit.
