  1. Any item with a red X over it indicates you can't use it. This is most apparent when you look at ammo as a blademaster and less apparent otherwise. As was stated, some items (namely traps and bombs) cannot be used on irregular terrain such as on mud piles, under deep water, or on a viney canopy. Depending on the monster you're trying to hunt, you might just have to deal with the denial of damage, plop a trap down wherever you can, and guide it in for a capture to end things quicker.

  1. Make sure you're not on weird terrain. There are certain places that will not allow you to place barrel bombs. A common one is in Wildspire Waste, the muddy area seems to prevent you from placing them.

  2. Make sure you are on a level surface and it is "normal" terrain. If you are on "normal" terrain, trying moving around a bit to see if it will let you drop. As you've pointed out too, you can only carry 2 barrel bombs at a time in your direct inventory.

  3. Depending on the item it could be as simple as a terrain issue.
