Per Nail (9)
- "[Player] was spiked"
- — Death message
A Nail Trap is a hazard found in Quake which shoots nails (the same kind as the ones fired from the Nailgun) when the player approaches. Anything in its path will be hurt by these nails, including enemies. These traps can fire at varying rates, with some even shooting several nails per shot. It is the Medieval equivalent of the Laser Trap.
Another variation exists, the Lava Nail trap, found in the expansion Dissolution of Eternity. It shoots red-hot "lava" nails which ignore the player's armor, thus always causing full damage.
