Strategy[edit | edit source]

  • Traps can be placed on either floors, walls or ceilings. Traps can used in one of two ways: passively or actively.
  • Passively: This method entails placing a traps on one of the aforementioned pieces and simply waiting for a player to trigger the trap.
  • Actively: This method is far more difficult to pull off but is impressive when done successfully. It entails trapping the enemy in a box and then placing the trap down. It is more effective if stairs are also placed in the box to limit the enemy player’s movement thus making it harder for them to escape as well as easier to eliminate them.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • If you are on something above or in front of a damage trap, it will not be triggered.
