When the Oil Trench ignites, any players who are caught in it will be eliminated, and any bombs in the Trench will be detonated. Items caught in the flames will be destroyed as well. Players who are not aware of the placement of all bombs on the battlefield may be caught off-guard and eliminated in the Oil Trench or in the explosions of any bombs that may be placed on it.
