Lemmings Wiki


Sand Pourer is a skill that can be given to a lemming in Lemmings 2: The Tribes. A Sand Pourer drops a fixed amount of sand from a bucket held above its head. This sand will fall down any terrain sloped at 45 degrees or more, and stops when it reaches ground flatter than this, to become part of the terrain on the level. When used on flat terrain, the sand will form a triangular mound. The Sand Pourer may be used like a Filler to block pits, or to form a ramp which may be used to reach higher ground. After using the skill, the lemming will start walking in the opposite direction, making it also a useful skill to turn lemmings around.


The Sand Pourer is key to solving the following levels:

On the Sega Master System, Game Gear, and Nintendo's Game Boy, Sand Pourers are replaced with Pyramiders.
