Spankers can be found primarily in police stations, bridge tolls, and other important buildings. They can also be found in residential houses in Hamlyn Village, Dr. Faraday's lab, and the Parade District.
Spankers come in three types, one that is a tall machine that resembles the end of an electronic conductor of some sort, another is one that hangs on the ceilings of Wellie's houses, and lastly, the ones on the streets that resemble a television with a smiling face on it. They all spark electricity towards the detected Downer.
- Spankers have been shown to be controlled remotely as well, being used by Reg Cutty to force Arthur to work faster during the side quest, The Slaughterer's Apprentice.
- Though it's very much possible that Reg manipulated the spanker to behave this way.
