Apologies for my very amateurish attempt.

Basic idea is a garden rake(found or crafted) with an added spike on the handle, activated by a player/zombie stepping on the rake end causing the stake/spike to smash into their head. It could be used multiple times, until broken, but would have to be retrieved from the player/zombie it killed after each use.


Rake Trap Crafted -

  1. Stick
  2. Nails/Scrap Metal for rake end.
  3. Stake (Sharpened stick crafted using knife/axe and stick)
  4. Spike ( Crafted using scrap metal and hammer or found)
  5. Duct tape/rope/string to bind

First time doing anything like this for around 5 years, so hopefully conformed with forum rules etc.

Feel free to hit me with constructive criticism :)

As amateur as this is the pure hilarity of it makes me want to go make one right now.

Not sure how many people will fall for it but zombies sure
If it were placed discretely in long grass/bushes it could be effective against other players. It would primarily be used for Zombies though, placed at night and removed in the morning.

What? No. We can't stop here. This is bat country.
I imagine I'd be like this forgetting where I put them :p

I love this idea... although you'll be hoping a zed steps on it, because their simple to make it wouldn't take long to make a good amount to cover an area or some doorways, hallways etc...

Mabye if you put a longer blade on you can decapitate multiple enemies at once.
can we put a landmine on the end?
I like the idea of multiple variants of a rake trap, like a horizontal blade for decapitating or a "shelled tip"... this would be the closest to an explosive one I would guess... not sure how much (if any) explosive material (maybe the rare grenade (not sure) will be in STN.

Could you also use hoes to make these?... :rolleyes:

I know the placing for the foot is a smaller area but if something stands on that it's a guaranteed hit.
