Construction Mode

From Hedgewars Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

Construction Mode is an unique style where all teams are able to build their forts and defend themselves and attempt to wipe out their enemies. There are various structures and bonuses available to aid you.


Power is very important in Construction Mode, it is used to build structures, buy crates and constructions.

Each team starts with 550 power on their first turn.

On each further turn, each team earns 50 new power without doing anything.

Generators increases the power steadily over time.

The power of the current team is displayed at the bottom left corner of the screen as a green number.


Building and using structures

To place a structure, select the “crosshair” symbol (it replaced the air attack) from the weapons menu, use the left and right movement keys to select the structure type and use the cursor to place the structure anywhere within your territority. It is even allowed for a structure to be placed inside terrain.

Careful, the structures are extremely fragile. Any direct hit from an attack or explosion, no matter how small, will destroy them.

Healing Station

This medical masterpiece miraculously regenerates the life of any friendly hogs who stand near it. What's more, it even boosts their health all the way up to 150! Wow!


This beastly device will violently target and destroy enemy hedgehogs who stray too close.

Weapon Filter

Do you dislike being murdered? Do you want to deter horrible hogs from your fort, but can't afford a Bio-Filter? Never fear! This inexpensive and handy screen will detect any weapons and gear carried by nearby enemy hogs and instantly vaporize them. Take pride in interrogating and/or gruesomely executing disarmed invaders at your leisure!

Reflector Shield

Being shot is for chumps! The reflector will reflect most incoming projectiles back towards their point of origin, as well dissolve pesky threats like fire or napalm. This structure will degrade a bit after each hit.


Do you think war is cheap, soldier? Melon bombs don't grow on trees, you know. Luckily, generators grant us a steady steam of income we can use to furnish our fort with mines, barrels, crates, structures—you name it!

Each generator generates 1 power per second.


In the event of your horrifying and untimely death, this reliable respawner will replace your ravaged husk with a fresh clone. Neat!

Teleportation Node

Walking is for plebs! The amazing structure allows any nearby hogs to use teleportation to teleport to any other node in their territory.

Note that teleportation is only available while your hedgehog is in the radius of any friendly teleportation node.

Construction Station

Crates are great and all, but an intense defense is even better! The construction station allows a nearby hog to purchase and place girders, rubber bands, mines, sticky mines, and barrels across their territory.

Your hedgehog must first be within the radius of a friendly construction station to place objects.

To place a mine, sticky mine or barrel, select the barrel symbol (it replaced the drill strike) on the menu. Having it selected, use the up and down keys to select the object, and the left and right keys to set an additional modifier (see cost chart). Use the cursor to place the object anywhere in your territority.

Girders and rubber bands are placed by selecting the girder or rubber from the weapons menu instead, they are placed like you are used to it, but again, this only works inside your territority.

Cost chart

Object Cost Modifier
Mine 15 Mine time in milliseconds
Sticky mine 20 Nothing special
Barrel 10 Barrel health (only 50)
Girder 1 Nothing special
Rubber 3 Nothing special

Support Station

This station allows a nearby hog to purchase and teleport weapon, utility, and health crates anywhere within their territory.

Your hedgehog must first be within the radius of a friendly support station to place crates.

To place a crate, select the “crate” symbol in the weapon menu (it replaced the napalm). Having it selected, use the up and down keys to switch between crate modes, left and right to select the crate content and use the cursor to place the crate in any open space inside your territority.

There are limits to how many crates you can buy per turn:

  • Up to 5 crates in total
  • Up to 1 extra time
