    Description: It is possible to wall climb & wall jump an enemy team's trap blocks in a pinch.
    This can also be seen when wall climbing platforms that are facing the opposite direction of the player.
    Steps to reproduce:
    1. Build a large number of trap blocks in some sort of cube.
    2. Switch teams.
    3. jump whilst in the trap blocks and spam left / right.
    Screenshots/Videos:

    *note* you can also see in the gif that the trap blocks higher up aren't closing properly when the player leaves the ones lower down.

    I'm not 100% sure, but I don't think it is.
    From what I've seen of the code it works on any blob that is both solid & static.
    This means that if you set a mine to be static you can wall jump off it without it exploding..
    It also happens with map-placed lanterns.
    Even if it is a feature, it is kinda' annoying since it doesn't seem to happen 100% of the time and is also off-putting in certain (mostly parkourey) situations.

  4. Good point. You're probably right.
