Trap Game Mechanics:[1][edit | edit source]

  • Traps have a trigger range and an effect range. For most traps this is one tile for both. (In this text assume trigger and effect range is 1 unless otherwise stated).
  • Traps have a reload time, which is the time between the trap triggers. Some of the bigger, more powerful traps can take up to 12 seconds to reload.
  • Traps have durability, which is the number of times a trap can trigger.
  • Once a trap has run out of durability it will disappear.
  • Traps cannot be repaired, but the surface they are attached to can.
  • Traps cannot be removed. You must remove the surface they are on or wait until their durability has run out.
  • The surface a trap is attached to cannot be edited until the trap is destroyed or runs out of durability.
  • If the wall that a trap is installed on is destroyed by husks, the trap dies too.
  • Traps cannot harm players. *

Notes[edit | edit source]

*Player launcher traps can potentially be used maliciously to direct an unsuspecting player towards their doom ie: cliff-side
