Description: Spiky wire rolled up.

Barbed Wire is an uncommon trap which can be found in military locations.They can be crafted using 2 wires on the crafting menu, creating 1 Barbed wire.

Barbed wire is more durable and stronger than the Caltrop, but weaker than the Snare. It is able to be placed on walls, unlike other spike traps. Barbed wire is best used in bases because they're able to be placed on walls and are able to be crafted with only 2 uncommon materials. Unlike the Barbed Fence, Barbed Wire is harder to spot in general, and makes it harder for players to avoid stepping on the trap.

Crafting Recipes

How to Make

  • 2 Wire = 1 Barbed Wire



  • Usually players trip over barbed wire at night because of the thickness of the wire, just like how players trip over caltrops because of its size.
  • Since barbed wire spawns rarely, it is advised to create the wire needed by smelting stone over a fire and saving up the scrap metal gained from this.
  • Damage taken from barbed wire can be reduced by wearing armor.
  • If you step on the barbed wire you will lose 84HP (without armor) and will soon die to bleeding without quick treatment.
