|Effect||Flinch, Stun 3 sec (Upgrade)|
The Pounder is a ceiling placed Damage Trap introduced in The Arena, level 13 in Orcs Must Die! or unlocked in the spellbook in Orcs Must Die! 2 at the cost of 10 skulls. It crushes enemies from above.
What’s the best cure for an orc’s migraine? Keeping hitting him on the head until he’s dead! The pounder gets the job done at a highly reasonable price. Throw a few tar traps or a decoy underneath; by the time the orcs think to look up, it’ll be too late.
Upgrades (OMD! 2)
