The game Holdfast Nations at War has a multitude of classes. Among the support class is the Sapper, whose expertise is the construction of defensive structures and other military works. This guide will show you how to build structures with Sappers.

How To Build | Sapper Guide – Holdfast Nations At War

As a Sapper, you have access to three main construction tools that will help you to build—a shovel, hammer, and a sledgehammer.

Building Defenses

Once you spawned as a sapper, the first thing to do is to equip your hammer by pressing Q on your keyboard. A hammer will help you build and repair defenses. After this, follow these steps:

  • Once you have a hammer, hold Right-click on your mouse or press G on your keyboard to scroll through construction options. Construction is divided into two categories: defenses and artillery.

To pick an option, press the Left-click button.

  • After picking an option, you’ll see a representation of the defense you want to construct. Press the Left-click button once more to place the construction on that area.
  • By this time, you’re going to start building your defense. Use your hammer and keep hitting around the construction area until its health bar fills up.
  • Orange color in the health bar means that the defense is still under construction. A great tip is to ask for help from your fellow Sappers to build the defense faster. The health bar will later turn green, which means that your defense is completely built.
  • You can also reinforce your defense by further building around it. You can utilize sandbags and platforms to cover from enemy fire and make your defense more stable.

Deconstructing and Repairing Defenses

Sappers can also deconstruct defenses by using a sledgehammer. This will bring back any resources that were used to build your defenses in the future. To go to deconstruction mode, press the G key and select either Deconstructor Undig. Strategically, you can destroy the enemy’s defenses by using explosives. You’ll also gain material points to enhance your own team’s structures.

As supports your task is to do the repair work on artilleries and various guns. This includes rocket launchers, mortars, field guns, and much more. Just use your hammer and pound away.

The key in playing as a Sapper is speed. Familiarizing yourself with the materials and knowing your skills will be critical to your team’s success. Have fun playing!

Terraria: Labor of Love | Shimmer Guide

One of the things that stand out in the Labor of Love Content is the Shimmer Liquid which has now become available early in the game.





In old versions of Terraria, the Shimmer liquid is part of the end game content. That means you will have access to it only when you’ve progressed further into the game.

In the Labor of Love content, the Aether Mini Biome is randomly spawned into the world and all you need to do is look for it.

Depending on how fast you can dig, you will be able to gain access to the Aether Mini Biome early in the game which opens up different item conversions which we will be discussing further on.

In this guide, we will show you the different uses for the Shimmer liquid in Terraria 1.4.4.

Labor of Love Shimmer Guide in Terraria

The shimmer liquid affects items in the game in different ways. Items that are crafted from different materials will sometimes disassemble when thrown into the liquid.

Throw items into the liquid to disassemble or upgrade existing items

Other items get upgraded to new versions of items exclusive in the latest update. Examples of this are the Life Crystal which turns into a vital crystal in the pool. This grants permanent regeneration boosts.

Another item is the Rod of discord. Throwing that into the pool will change it into a rod of Harmony where you can use the rod’s ability to teleport without suffering any debuff from use.

Try throwing different items to see their results

NPCs that fall into the liquid will change their appearances and if you fall into the pond, you will be sucked down and pass through blocks. Try to throw in different items and test out their results.
