Spikes are a type of trap found in the Dungeon. They deal 40 damage to the player on contact. They can be collected by using a pick or explosives, then placed for use as a PvP barricade or aesthetic purposes.

Notes[edit | edit source]

  • Spikes deal no damage to monsters and friendly NPCs.
  • Wooden Spikes are Hardmode versions which inflict more damage.
  • They turn bright red with the Dangersense buff.
  • Spikes will deal damage to players even when the player is not touching the 'pointy' side.

Trivia[edit | edit source]

  • Spikes are the only pre-hardmode tile that a Picksaw cannot destroy in one hit.

History[edit | edit source]

  • Spike damage is kept separate from other damage when factoring immunity, preventing abuse of invincibility frames.
  • 1.2: Stack limit increased from 250 to 999.
