A Spear Trap is a type of trap that you can find in the Jungle Temple after beating Plantera, they are quite common and can be rotated by 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.
- Damage is doubled against players.
- The Spear Trap has a maximum range of 19.5 blocks.
Tips[edit | edit source]
- Rarely, Spear Traps will spawn outside the temple and can be harvested. They work well against the goblin army or, in some cases, the pirate invasion or blood moon.
- 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.
- In single-player, Spear Traps inflict the Frostburn-debuff if the player wears Frost armor.
