Spikes are a type of trap block that deal 60 / 40 damage to players who come in contact with them. On the Desktop version Desktop version, Console version Console version, Mobile version Mobile version, and Nintendo Switch version Nintendo Switch version, they additionally inflict the Bleeding debuff for 10 / 20 / 25 seconds. They can be found in the Dungeon and can be broken with a drill, pickaxe, or explosive. This is the only way to obtain them, as they are not craftable.

Notes[]

History[]

  • Desktop 1.4.2: Fixed an issue where Spikes would not hurt the player from some angles at certain elevations.
  • Desktop 1.4.0.1:
    • Sprites updated. Old sprites were: Spike (old).png and Spike (placed) (old).png.
    • Damage increased from 40 to 60, and now inflicts the Bleeding debuff.
  • Desktop 1.3.0.5: Spike damage is kept separate from other damage when factoring immunity, preventing abuse of invincibility frames.
