A List to All Devices ranked by memory!

Devices are a staple to any mechanic in a gimkit game. However, you only have 100,000 memory per map to use in a game! So use your memory wisely…

*The Sentry is Listed Twice, under 1000 and 500 memory, because the first sentry placed will take up 1000 memory, and only if there is one sentry on the map.

Why is it both 500 and 1000?

Nice, this is very helpful! I was surprised by some device’s memory, I guess I never looked at how much memory they took up.

It’s because when you place the first sentry, its 1000, and the rest go down to 500.

Oh yeah, zone memory goes down after the first one as well…

Nice guide! Memory is the most scarce material in gimkit creative, and without the pass you only have a total of 300,000 memory, this guide is great in letting me know if there is a less memory-costing alternative! Great guide overall!

Wait the pass allows you to have more memory in a map?

No, think about it. You get 100k memory per map. 100k X 3 = 300k.

Can you make this guide wiki for me so I can update it to use tables and headings instead of details sectors? Details might make it difficult, and one long table will help. Headers can be used to organize instead of details sectors.

It’s already been ~3 months and regulars can’t make a wiki by that time because the editing limit has passed

Alright.

I am going to make a renewed version of this guide which relies on a table instead of chapters. I will credit the creator of this guide.
