Bug Zapper

Bug Zapper Trap

Overview[]

The Bug Zapper is a trap that is hidden as a tile of fill dirt until triggered. One second after an enemy minion walks into its radius, the trap triggers, dealing lightning damage and stunning targets within the AOE. The Bug Zapper targets both ground and aerial targets. Ghosts are especially vulnerable to these traps due to their lightning weakness. The AOE stun is particularly useful when paired with other defenses. Furthermore, the Bug Zapper, being disguised as a tile of fill dirt, can be used to make a segment of a dungeon appear cut off, sometimes making it difficult for an attacker to see how to enter an area without using the Bomb Wall spell. The Bomb Wall spell will reveal this trap, but will not deal damage to the trap.

To acquire access to the Bug Zapper trap, Keepers must have a Level 6 Workshop. The trap, itself, may be upgraded; doing so will increase the health of the trap and the damage it does. However, it does NOT increase the duration of the stun.

Notes[]

  • Bug Zappers work well when combined with Freeze Traps
  • Stun effect stacks with other bug zappers, for example, 3 bug zappers will stun for 6 seconds
  • 3 Bug Zappers hitting the same target will cause it to become perma stunned. The target won't be able to move unless one of the traps is destroyed or disabled
  • Horny is still able to attack if stunned by bug zappers if he is within attack range
  • Bug Zappers do extra damage vs Tiny and Ghosts
