Variable. See level information for details.

Important stratum themes:
  • Monsters: Gate Icon-Beast.png Gate Icon-Construct.png Gate Icon-Fiend.png Gate Icon-Gremlin.png Gate Icon-Slime.png Gate Icon-Undead.png
  • Status: Icon status fire.png Icon status freeze.png Icon status poison.png Icon status shock.png

The Compound is an area consisting of levels which share similar characteristics.


No gate icon description for this region.


Its floors are composed of random map segments. Compounds are floating islands, similar to other areas such as the Wolver Den. They only appear in Tier 2 and 3 of the Clockworks. Icon status curse.png Curse and Icon status sleep.png Sleep are the only status themes not encountered in these levels.

Monster population consists of many monster families. The more organic "brush" areas are always populated by Slimes, Wolvers, and a large number of minis. The type of monsters populating the "facilities" is indicated by the color of the gate's monster icon. Infinite numbers of minis will spawn in the facility areas, despite the area's description. Shankles, Wisps, and minis populate both facility and brush. Every monster family can spawn in a single Compound if it is a Ravenous Warrens or Creeping Colony with a Fiend theme. The beast/slime minis will spawn, as well as their accompanying pierce-damaging family. Gremlins and Constructs almost always spawn in Compounds by default. On top of this, fiends will spawn, and in some places where a turret is designated to spawn, a Howlitzer will appear, since the Fiend family has no turrets.

To help keep track of the diversity the player will encounter in a compound: "Chittering Burrows" = Scarabs, "Creeping Colony" = Drops, "Ravenous Warrens" = Bunnies.

As with most gate icons, Gate-Ruined Compound-(Fiend).png Blue monster icon = fiends, Gate-Ruined Compound-(Construct).png Grey monster icon = constructs, Gate-Ruined Compound-(Gremlin).png Orange monster icon = gremlins (for compounds, this indicates population in the facility segments). The background colors of the icon indicate status.

Bunnies, Drops, and Scarabs are members of the Beast, Slime, and Undead family, respectively. The only monster icons used in compound gate maps are for families that do not have a compound-associated mini class: Construct, Fiend, and Gremlin. For example, there are no compound icons that use a pink monster symbol for slimes. This pattern includes all monster families in relation to compounds.


The Compounds feature the remains of some sort of unknown facility, where more intelligent monsters await, harvesting resources or perhaps attempting to power up the derelict machinery. However, just outside the confines of the facilities, hordes of mini monsters await in the brush, waiting to strike.


A Rare Scenario Room will spawn a Ghostmane Stalker.

Deactivated Mecha Knights can sometimes be found in Scenario Rooms, offering a little help if it is necessary for 5 Icon-Energy.png Energy.

Every single monster family can spawn in a single Compound if it is a Ravenous Warrens with a Fiend theme.
