If you have Advanced Engineering, the number of materials required will be reduced.
How to Use Blade Traps
A power source must be attached to the blade trap. One simple solution is to construct a generator nearby . Connect the generator to the blade trap using a wire tool.
You also need to make a switch to turn the trap on and off, and the switch should be wired together.
In terms of positioning, you may lay the blade trap on the ground to target the zombies’ legs, or you can lift it to try to slice off their heads. Some players put traps at the bottom where the zombies tend to fall.
What is a Blade Trap?
The Blade Trap is a 3×3 ’tile’ area with three spinning blades that chops both players and zeds. It makes no discrimination.
It takes 20W of power to work. Different effects will be obtained depending on how the blade is positioned. Placing the blade on the ground will slice off zombie legs, transforming the zombies into crawlers.
The blade will chop off heads on a two-block-high ceiling, resulting in an immediate kill. Placing it vertically against a wall is not advised since zombies may attack it without taking damage, yet it can usually kill zombies.
