Hello visitor! A note about the contents of this wiki: Barotrauma is a game with several years' worth history as a free-download open source game, and this wiki has been written primarily based on this legacy version. As such, not all content is relevant to the Steam release. So please wait patiently as the contents are updated, and feel free to contribute new information once the Steam version of Barotrauma is released!

Installations are a type of devices found in Barotrauma. Unlike Items, installations are part of a submarine's layout and cannot be moved; on the other hand, they are among the most important tools at the crew's disposal to survive the dangerous depths of Europa.


Vital installations (Nuclear Reactor, Oxygen Generator, etc) are essential to the submarine's operation and must be kept running properly at all time to ensure the survival of the crew. Other installations are necessary to endure specific situations but can be kept non-functional with no ill effects the rest of the time (although it is recommended to keep them ready to be used at any time to deal with emergencies).

Most installations need to be powered to function, with the exception of the reactor, which provides power, and the steel cabinet, which doesn't require electricity.

See 'Maintenance' for bits of advice on how to take care of installations.
