Arrow Walls facing eachother, useless?

Hello!

I was thinking, isn't it completely useless to put them facing each other on two walls since they activate at the same time, and having just one on the wall seems to kill everything in there by itself anyway?

Thanks in advance!

Well its more damage. Armored Orcs can survive the arrows usually. But yeah its better to spread them out. Also use tar pit to slow down the kobolds so they don't out run it. Later though it seems like there are better traps that go on walls anyway.

You want a different trap on the opposing wall, so as to maximize your combo potential.

A little tip: always be looking for ways to put an arrow wall so the mobs run toward or away from it, rather than through it.

The arrows don't stop until they hit something (far beyond the trigger zone), so if you can put one at the END or BEGINNING of a long hallway, you'll hit far more targets than if it's on a wall in the middle.

Good advice from Cougarific.

I prefer to have Arrow Walls facing a different trap simply for the extra combo point.

Or - like us high scoring nutters, don't use the arrow trap at all, as it tends to have horrible start up times.

It appears Robot Entertainment does not consider opposing double Arrow Walls useless, as I am seeing it a few times in the announcement trailer for Orcs Must Die! 2

specifically at 0:15, 0:23, and 0:36

Sometimes you just need the chokepoint power.
Had 3 double arrow walls on nightmare of DLC map 4.

Arrow Traps (Spear Traps?) are some of my favourite devices...
