  • The 5 Second Timer will not override the cool down period of the connected device. For example, if you connect a 5 second timer to a Heart Statue, the statue will still activate only once every ten seconds.
  • The 5 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 5 Second Timer on the Mobile Version, since the Copper Watch cannot be crafted.
