Different wire colors are used to build independent overlapping circuits.

Wrenches are tools for placing Wire. Wires are used to connect mechanisms together, such as a trap with a Pressure Plate. All Wrenches are purchased from the Mechanic for 2 Gold Coin each.

Holding a wrench allows players to see laid wires. Wires exist in their own layer, and thus can be placed over furniture, blocks, and walls.

There are currently four different Wrenches: the Red Wrench, Green Wrench, Blue Wrench, and the Yellow WrenchDesktop VersionConsole Version, each placing its respective color of Wire. All Wrenches use the same ordinary Wire item as ammunition, but the color of Wrench used will determine the color of wire when placed. The colors all function identically, but can be placed so as to overlap or intersect each other without interfering with each other. Junction BoxesDesktop VersionConsole Version can further be used to keep intersecting Wire paths of the same color from interfering with each other.

Desktop VersionConsole Version All four wrenches can be combined to make a Multicolor Wrench, a single tool that can place Wire of any color.

Ordinary Wrenches cannot be used to remove placed wires. Instead, a Wire Cutter, or one of its derivatives (Multicolor WrenchDesktop VersionConsole Version, Grand DesignDesktop VersionConsole Version) is required. All Wire colors become the same ordinary Wire item again when freed.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The Wrench can not be placed on a Weapon Rack.
  • Having different color wrenches for each player on multiplayer can be useful, as each player will get their own wire color.
  • Having a wrench or other wire-vision item can be very useful when exploring, as it will make hidden traps much easier to see.
  • As of the current version, Nintendo SwitchSwitch does not have the yellow wrench or Mechanical Lens, thus obtaining the Multicolor Wrench and Grand Design is impossible

History[edit | edit source]
