At the moment the most common way to get into someones base is to blow through the roof, by either entering an open roof or by placing an Explosive Charge onto the wall below the roof. Now most people have learned to never leave their roofs open, but if your base is under construction someone is bound to jump in. So that leaves us with the other problem the one I don’t they people should be able to do. Placing a Charge Below our feet somehow and blowing a wall out.
There is a way to counter this, and that is making your entire top floor a bait room with spikes along the walls to prevent people from jumping down. Although creative it is just a means to an end and not really an interesting or integrated way of defending your roof. I thought it might be time for a new item to allow us to defend our bases. Something that can be placed on a ceiling that does NOT have a wall or pillar placed. They could be at a 45 degree angle, could be placed inward or outward, though they don’t have to do damage, and they could prevent a staircase from directly going up to the roof. Because of the angle a player could not place a Charge below them to get into your top floor.
Example of placing charge while on roof.
The materiel could either be wood or metal. If they were would they would either be a simple 45 degree rail, or spikes that the same height as the small spike walls but hang a bit over the edge. Though if they were metal they could be similar to the 45 degree rail, almost like a safety rail. The other thing they could be if their are metal would be razor wire, though that might be going a bit far but would be amazing.
By rails I mean similar to this photo only at a 45 degree angle over the edge.
Though if it was razor wire it would be like the barbed wire part of the top of this fence.
Anyone else think this would help protect your base from being raided from the roof?
