2.94 - Trap Blocking
Blocking the fellow deaths's view and access to the trap is not allowed.
Going back from the first trap into the little catwalk and hitting deaths.
Going on top of the tree at the second trap, makes deaths able to hit runners.
Going on top of the tree, from there you can jump to the block that closes off the 4th trap and jump to the roof, from there u can jump on top of the chain and on top of the deaths place.
Right after the chain trap, you can go on top of the roof, by jumping on the leaning side and just holding W.
In some parts of the map, you can kill deaths as runners, and vice versa.
Getting enough speed can allow you to skip most of the traps in the map. An example could be both of the 50/50 doors, even though there's a small barrier, you can still skip it with enough speed.
You can hit deaths if you climb on the stones that come from wall just before the falling TNT trap.
Hitting runners/deaths through windows separating them.
Sometimes when two runners stands on the platforms going up, one of them dies.
At the trap before elevator, you can be crouched under the closing door.
Jumping around the stompers on the dirt pile then jumping around the barrels in the same phase.
Using the fan trap to skip both the barrel traps, or using it to get on top of the factory.
At the first health station, you can stand at the fence separating deaths from runners, and actually punch deaths from there, and vice versa.
Using the gravel/dirt pile to surf boost over the Trainrails
If you go standing as close as possible on the second trap blade, you can hit deaths and kill them, its possible to kill deaths or vice versa, at many points of the map.
Getting over 700 velocity to skip the fire traps, electric trap, car trap, floor trap and the cage trap.
Blocking the Boulder with a vape/knife
At the pipes at the end of the first row of traps, it’s possible to spam the console, by spamming the button to choose which one kills you but only as death.
After the second pipe, when you go on the platform moving up and down, its possible to skip the barrels by jumping towards the lava, making you able to hit a barrier in the air to skip it.
Getting enough speed to jump next to the deaths place fence and walk it a bit further to go into secret and when coming out of secret you are on stairs next to plants coming out of pipes.
2nd level after portals, sacrificing own health to go in the lava and basically go past traps (depending on health how many traps you can skip).
In most parts of the map u can knife deaths as runners, and vice versa, since there is no barrier from deaths to runners.
Jumping on the obsidian doors at the lava trap.
If you get enough speed, you can use the little ramp thing at the dollar trap to get on top of the side of the pool table. This can be used to skip one trap or get out of the map.
On last area going on top of one of the laser balls and jumping on the prison cell and bhops on the walls possibly skipping 2 traps.
Doing ladder jump to get on antennas and there jump to the Deaths' area.
In front of the helicopter you can bhop a little and jump on toxic barrels and jump over the white wall skipping 2 or 3 traps.
It is still possible to get on top of the maze, however a barrier has been made.
Getting enough speed after the last trap can allow you to skip the code and get to the hidden area without using the code.
Standing on the bar next to the spinning trap, you can actually kill deaths from there.
Using ring boost to get on top of deaths' area, using ladders to get on top of the thing at the hammer trap.
Jumping on top of the glasses(50/50 trap after planks) then going on top of the sign to skip the second teleporters (needs lot of speed and extremely hard to execute).
Crouching under both the pistons in the same phase.
Getting on top of the trap that traps you with the lasers, right after the barrels.
The "new" ending is currently broken (no guns).
Camping in the corner that resets your health to 100 (You're allowed to use it, just not camp in it)
The fan trap at second floor is currently broken since it does not kill the player as it is supposed to do, however the trap is still allowed to be used, but the player needs to type kill in console to avoid delaying the round.
If you feel that you have been wrongly punished for something which is not a rule / linked to a rule on here, you can appeal the punishment in the appeals section, and report a staff member in the report abuse section if you believe that they are abusing their powers.
