Entry: Barbed Wire

Used before the evolution of Razor Wire. It's mainly constructed of metal arranged in a helixial or circular pattern with small metal "barbs" or hooks tied around the metal that makes up the structure. These barbs are often very sharp and come in a variety of shapes and sizes. definitely not something to tangle with lightly.

Added Note: Barbed Wire can be crossed with tarp or rugs, however some barbed wire can have motion sensing wiring in them to detect motion and can sound an alarm, if disturbed or cut.

Note: there is a danger of tetanus if cut by rusty barbed wire.
