Orcs must die! 2

In Orcs Must Die! 2 this trap can be upgraded to either freeze enemies when they hit it - which increses its durability significantly - or to respawn 2.5 minutes after it gets destroyed, but no longer explodes. In this case it can be sold for a full refund while it is inactive. This way the respawn timer can be circumvented in any break if the player is fast enough - similar to the reactivation of Spore Mushrooms.
