The Damage Volume, formerly known as the Elimination Zone, is a creative device similar to the Barrier that deals damage to players who step within its specified radius. It has customizable width, depth, height, damage type, damage tick rate, damage, safe team, visibility, and shield damage properties.

The old Elimination Zone can be still obtained in creative by a glitch.
