A remote controller is an electrical item.

Usage

Remote controllers are used to trigger traps, so long as they have the crafted trigger modification. Each of the three remote controllers have a different activation range, being 7, 11, and 15 tiles.

Linking

To activate a trap with a remote controller, the two items must first be linked by right-clicking the remote controller or trap and selecting "Link to [TRAP/CONTROLLER]". Each remote controller has a unique Remote ID, upon linking, the trap will have this same ID. If it has been linked correctly, both the remote controller and trap will have an identical Remote ID, and the trap will be tagged with "(Linked)". The trap can now be thrown or placed without triggering upon impact.

Triggering

To trigger the remote trap, right-click the linked remote controller and select "Trigger", this will trigger any linked traps. Multiple traps can be linked to a single remote controller and once triggered, all linked traps will be triggered. A remote controller can be used an infinite amount of times and will never degrade or be consumed.
