A Spear Trap is a type of trap found in the Jungle Temple. They are placed on the ceiling and thrust down long spears, dealing around 130 damage per hit. They are quite common. A Spear Trap can fire at a rate of once every 1.5 seconds (Desktop Version) or once every 2 seconds (Old-gen console versionMobile Version)

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.
  • Old-gen console versionMobile VersionIn single-player, Spear Traps inflict the Frostburn-debuff if the player wears Frost armor.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Desktop 1.3.1:
    • Sprite updated.
    • Can now be hammered to rotate 90 degrees at a time.
  • Desktop 1.2.3: No longer shoots the retracting spear head upwards like a projectile if the trap is in inactive state (by the means of an Actuator).
