The Ramparts are a third level biome.
This series of towers lays high within the sky of the island, rising into the air. The glow of a beautiful sunset does not match the current state of these towers, sadly. After they no longer could hold the prisons, the guards retreated to the Ramparts. Now, however, the current state of disrepair is a telltale sign that this retreat did not work. When they still held these towers, sometimes prisoners would be thrown from the Ramparts, and the devices would be used for mindless torture. Even if one had made it through that horrible prison, or through the sewers and the yard, the climb would be the one to introduce them to their doom.
General information[edit | edit source]
Access and exit[edit | edit source]
The Ramparts can be accessed from either the Promenade of the Condemned or the Toxic Sewers. In both cases, the Vine rune is required. When playing with 1 or more BSC active, a door in Corrupted Confinement can also lead to this biome, which itself requires having the Spider rune.
There are two exits out of the Ramparts. The main exit leads to the Black Bridge where the Concierge awaits. This exit can spawn either at the bottom of any underground tower section, or in a specific tower located at the far right end of the level. A hint on the surface of the Ramparts indicates which of these options has been generated: the presence of a wooden platform (see Gallery) indicates that the exit is in an underground section to the right, but not at the far end of the level. Conversely, the absence of this structure guarantees that the exit is located at the far right.
If the player has at least 3 BSC active, a door (which can spawn behind rune-locked areas) can be accessed which leads to the Insufferable Crypt instead.

Scrolls[edit | edit source]
The Ramparts contains 5 scrolls, including 3 Power Scroll and 2 Dual-stat scrolls, which cannot spawn in areas requiring the Teleport, Ram or Spider runes. When 3 Boss Stem Cells are active, this biome has 1 guaranteed Scroll Fragment, and when 4/5 Boss Stem Cells are active, this biome has 2 guaranteed Scroll Fragments.

Exclusive blueprints[edit | edit source]
Secret areas[edit | edit source]
The blueprints for the Stun Grenade and Nerves of Steel bow are found in secret areas located at the far right end of the Ramparts (see Gallery for details). The structures that hold these blueprints are not guaranteed to spawn, therefore it may require a number of runs to get them. Note that if any of these blueprints are present, the exit to the Black bridge will not be located at the end of the level, but rather at the bottom of one of the underground sections.
Enemies[edit | edit source]
Enemies[edit | edit source]
In the Ramparts, you will find plenty of Undead Archers, Inquisitors, Shieldbearers, Zombies and Buzzcutters, the last of these being unique to this biome. In addition, Zombies, and Grenadiers dwell in this biome. On higher difficulties, Knife Throwers, Bombers, Rampagers and Cannibals respectively replace Archers, Zombies, Inquisitors and Slashers. From 2-3 BSC onwards, the Ramparts therefore become a particularly dangerous place.
In the table below, you will find which enemies are present in the Ramparts depending on difficulty level. For each enemy, any common, uncommon, rare or legendary blueprints they carry are indicated. When applicable, the minimum difficulty level for blueprint acquisition is specified in brackets.
