Summary

  • The Spring Trap is a defensive trap in the Builder Base that springs ground troops off the map. The units will appear to fly out of the map.
  • The Spring Trap does not need the Master Builder or O.T.T.O for construction, however, they are required for upgrading.
  • The Spring Trap can spring a certain number of troops, depending on its spring capacity. Higher leveled Spring Traps have a larger spring capacity, allowing them to launch more troops at once.
    • Skeletons spawned by Drop Ships have a spring weight of 1.
    • Sneaky Archers have a spring weight of 3.
    • Raged Barbarians have a spring weight of 4.
    • All other ground units have a spring weight that is greater than 8 (the capacity of the highest-level Spring Trap), so will be immune to them.

Strategies

  • Spring Traps can be combined with Push Traps by facing Push Traps toward the Spring Trap. This is useful in eliminating distraction troops so that your defenses will focus on the other enemy troops.
  • Grouping Spring Traps isn't recommended since only a few small troops like Raged Barbarians can trigger them easily.
  • Spring Traps are often used in one-by-one holes leading to something like a Crusher. Use a few cheap troops like Raged Barbarians to trigger them. Alternatively, most ground troops (particularly those with a single unit per Army Camp) are immune to them, so they can be used to trigger them.
  • Preferably, you want to put them in places that are prone to Sneaky Archers, as it can remove them quickly.

Upgrade Differences

  • The Spring Trap undergoes significant visual changes at levels 2 and 4.
  • At level 1, the Spring Trap appears to be a wooden board on a metal spring.
  • At level 2, the Spring Trap's spring becomes much thicker, and the wood also becomes much wider and thicker.
  • At level 4, the Spring Trap gains a metal border around the board's edges, which looks identical to a level 5 Spring Trap from the Home Village.
