Sector type 5, Spikes, is a sector type that is used in conjunction with spikes and damages the player on contact. The Elemental Shield does not protect against it and any shield will be lost or damaged upon being hurt by this special. It plays the spike sound effect (
sfx_spkdth) when the player comes in contact with it. If the player is merely hurt, the hurt sound will play along with the spike sound; if the player dies, the usual death sound will be suppressed in favor of the spike sound. In NiGHTS levels, these sectors do not cause damage in 3D mode due to all damage being disabled; in 2D mode, they cause normal NiGHTS damage and only play the normal hurt sound.
