Moved to Booby Trap (Overworld)/tips


  • Before the Map Room 3 update, the Abunakki Tribe uses more Booby Traps than any other Tribe.
  • The Booby Trap is the only defensive building that has the same size as the Blocks
  • Not only can the Overworld build booby traps, but Inferno Yards can also build Booby Traps. Which cost 1000 Bone, Coal and Sulfur which is the equivalent of Twigs, Pebbles and Putty in the Overworld.
  • Booby traps are made useless when healers are flung into battle.The booby trap (hehehe David Scott said booby) now has a graphic (finally) and makes a nice mess of any Monster that steps on it. It also leaves a black scorch mark on the ground to make it easy to see where you had a trap before it was triggered.


  • If an Eye-ra explodes near a Booby Trap, it will deal 10 damage to the Booby Trap and expose the Booby Trap's position.
