Description

This type of wire was invented by Beetee, and was said to be as thin as hair and stretch for miles. Throughout the Games, Beetee guarded the wire with his life. Beetee revealed that to end the Careers' alliance they were going to connect the wire to the water and a tree that was continuously struck by lightning, so anyone near the damp beach would be electrocuted. Katniss and Johanna were sent to connect the wire to the lightning tree, but Katniss was knocked out and during this time by Johanna. When Katniss later followed the wire to Beetee and she found that he was electrocuted by a force field. So she did what she thought he was doing and attached the wire to one of her arrows and shot it at the force field after the lightning struck, destroying the arena.

“The gamemaker, Plutarch Heavensbee, had purposely put the wire in the arena for the intent of their escape.”
