What To Use Rope For in Baldur’s Gate 3

The only mechanical use for rope in the game is to throw it to activate buttons or disarm traps from a distance. The rope is usually not large or heavy enough to cover vents, but some of the smaller traps can be triggered by throwing a rope at them. While it might sound useful, other items in the game can achieve the same result. The only difference is that you may not want to throw better items to simply press buttons or waste on traps.

Therefore, the rope cannot be used on enemies to tie them, climb up surfaces, scale cliffs, etc. The only other use for it is to be sold to vendors to empty your bags and earn a measly amount of gold. Unfortunately, there is not much else to do with rope, so you have to wonder if it’s even useful to pick up when you’ve managed to earn some amount of starting gold after the very early game.
