Orcs Must Die! Wiki

The Spring Trap is a floor trap unlocked in Twin Halls. It launches enemies into the air into the direction it is faced. This is a good trap for small groups from advancing and can make them repeat a section over or make them land into pits. However, they cannot affect Ogres unless specialized with Overcoiled Springs. They can also be upgraded in the Spellbook to decrease their cost by 100.
