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 3 seconds between firings (Desktop VersionConsole VersionMobile Version 3.33 or 3 1/3 seconds).

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.
  • Damage is doubled against players.
  • Old-gen console version In singleplayer, Spear Traps inflict the Frostburn debuff if the player wears Frost armor.
