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

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.

History[edit | edit source]

    • Sprite updated.
    • Can now be hammered to rotate 90 degrees at a time.
