Notes[ | ]

  • Inmates can still move around in the Cage, and use their weapons, powers and tools. However the only way to get out of it is by destroying it.
    • However inmates can be hooked out of cages.
  • Gaps in the cage can be shot through. You can also hit caged enemies with your Axe if they are standing close enough to the wall.
  • Tracking is also applied to caged inmates. It lasts 30 seconds, and remains even if the inmate breaks out.
  • Tracking can be removed with Smoke Bomb.
  • Cage Traps have three states of visibility:
    • Transparent but visible - for nearby enemy inmates who are standing still
    • Transparent, hard to see - for nearby enemy inmates who are walking
    • Invisible - for enemy inmates who are running or far away
  • Inactive Cage Traps can be destroyed by inmates in 1 hit. Activated Cages can be destroyed in 6 Axe hits, or 20 Arrow hits.
  • You cannot place several Cage Traps on top of another.
  • If Cage Traps are placed on a temporary surface (for example an Arena), they will destroy themselves once the surface goes away.
