The Spear Trap is a trap found naturally in the Jungle Temple. When activated, it launches a spear in a straight line that can pierce an infinite number of enemies and retracts upon hitting a block or reaching its maximum range of 19.5 blocks. It has a cooldown of 1.5 seconds between firings Desktop, Console, and Mobile Versions (2s Old-gen console version3DS Version), and doing 60 damage to enemies and 120 damage to players.

Desktop VersionConsole Version Spear Traps can be rotated 90° with a hammer.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • If two spears hit the same player or creature at the same time, the victim only takes damage once, due to the immunity time of the first spear.
  • Old-gen console version In singleplayer, Spear Traps inflict the Frostburn debuff if the player wears Frost armor.

Tips[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop VersionRarely, Spear Traps will spawn outside the temple, but can't be harvested until you get yourself a Picksaw.
  • They are good for battle arenas.
  • When actuated, these can be used as a very efficient way to kill off bosses, or clear waves in events like Pumpkin Moon and Frost Moon, easily.
