Tread lightly through this obstacle - it may look like a simple pit, but random holes below the surface will take you down.

Step Lightly

Don’t stomp through the swamp on this one. Tread carefully and feel for the holes.

Look Around

See where that guy just fell? Don’t step there.

Embrace the Mud

Face it – you’re getting muddy. Might as well laugh about it.

“Don’t be hasty. Those holes are SNEAKY.”

How To Conquer
Move slowly here and step lightly here, because there’s not much more that you can do to prepare. The holes are deep and random, so don’t go stomping.
