Unobtainable Object

Tesla Spike is an object unobtainable by players through normal means. This item's information is present in the game files, but not intended by developers to be in players' possession.

Tesla Spike is a trap found in the Miniknog Stronghold, as well as in electric-themed Ancient Vaults. It creates an electric current that will connect to adjacent spikes and makes an intense electrical buzzing sound. It deals 25 electricity damage once per second to players when touched, but does not damage monsters or NPCs.

Even if encountered in a non-shielded environment, attempting to mine a tesla spike will cause it to break and drop nothing. As a result, it cannot be obtained through normal gameplay.
