|Effect||Summons a Crab|
The Crab Statue is a statue that releases Crabs when activated by a Trigger via Wire. Only three statue-spawned crabs may be alive at any one time. On death, the crabs will occasionally drop hearts or mana stars. The Crab Statue is often used to build Crab Engines, a superior alternative to the 1 Second Timer.
Crab engines are mechanisms that may be built with one or more crab statues. Crabs, by nature, jump at a rapid pace. If they are left in a confined space with a Red, Green, or Yellow Pressure Plate to jump on, they will press the switch at a rate about 50% faster than a 1 Second Timer. This setup is useful for farms and other mechanisms with a cooldown of less than one second.
The activation rate is about six times faster than the one second timer. This was tested by comparing the activation speed of Torches.
The Bird Statue Engine is 5% faster than the Crab Engine.
