Shop Tags are the Tags seen on Shop Items in Steamlands. Tags are seen on the bottom left corner of the image of the Item, and are represented by a small image and the level of the item. The level of the item goes from level 1-3, although some items go only to level 2, rarely level 1. Tags are placed on all shop items, except for Gossip. There are several different types of Tags used throughout Steamlands. All items have at least one Shop item, although the Zeus, Catherine, Infestor, and Dragoon have no Shop Item. The Zeus lacks an item as it is already very powerful, while the Catherine, Infestor, and Dragoon lack shop items as they were not made for the original Steamlands levels, but for fans to use them in their own levels.

Tags

Below are the Tags, there image and a template showing all items that have that Tag.

Damage

Damage is a Tag used by mostly Gun Shop Items, although some other non-gun items use them. The icon for the Tag is a silver rocket going diagonally up. Almost all items in this category do not go up to level 3, most not even passing level 2. The Saboteur Damage Rate 1 has been put into this category due to the "Damage Rate" tag being used only once in Steamlands. The item increases the shot damage of guns.

Price: £2500 £4000 £5000
Result: Increases damage Increases damage Increases damage
Description: The weight of the Determinators ammunition could easily be increased. But you would have to purchase new parts to keep the firing mechanize stable. The calibre of the flex can easily be increased, but only with new parts. Purchase them here for more flexible damage. This town seems to have a large stockpile of lead for some reason. But that has given you the idea of making the Hail-Stone more devastating. Perhaps you should purchase this stockpile from them.

They would make for a deadlier explosive core for Big Ben`s ammunition. Rumor has it the Woodpecker turret used to actually fire the beaks of woodpeckers. Grisly stuff eh? Well they've improved on the ammo once again and you can by it in town to peck down the opposition better.
