  • The 3 Second Timer will not override the cool down period of the connected device. For example, if you connect a 3 second timer to a Heart Statue, the statue will still activate only once every ten seconds. In these cases it is usually more efficient to use a lower tier timer, such as the 5 Second Timer.
  • The 3 Second Timer must be placed on top of another solid block.
  • The timer itself can be wired to a different switch, which can be used to activate the timer, which will activate the connected device. A timer can even be wired to another timer, which will cause the timers to automatically turn themselves on and off.
  • Icon mobile The Mechanic sells the 3 Second Timer on the Mobile Version, since the Silver Watch cannot be crafted.
