The Spike is an uncraftable item only found in Dungeons. They inflict 40 damage against a player without any armor and can be collected with any pickaxe or drill. They do not harm monsters or NPCs.

  • Spikes are a very effective defense mechanism on PvP servers, as it takes some time to hammer each Spike.

  • As in the image, the spike's appearance is altered drastically depending on how it and adjacent spikes are placed.

Update Info



  • Can now be destroyed by bombs.
